poured out before bed
As an adult, I may giggle a little about how silly and borderline awkward Mr. Rogers is to my sophisticated (cough) 20-something mind.
But as a kid – old Rogers was tops.
Like my husband, when I was about 3, I really thought Rogers could see me through the screen…and I was so gratified that he seemed to like me. Mr. Rogers was a good friend of sorts to a lot of those who were kiddos in the decade of excess and – though I’ll probably snicker a bit at the deliberate way that wiry little man ties his shoes and feeds his fish – I hope he’ll inspire my kids someday, too. I hope you fancy Boswell’s Roger’s remix – I know it’s set to music my morning lab review and our long walking rounds and even some of the internal medicine case files I’ve been reading since I first heard it! Enjoy!
