Lately, I’ve been seeing Elmo and Cookie Monster t-shirts on everyone around town. At first, I thought it was an anomaly. In fact I wondered about a student who wore the cookie monster shirt so frequently think he has to wash it every night. Then I saw a cheerleader wearing a cookie monster shirt. And kids in student government. And kids in band. Pretty much everyone has a Cookie Monster or Elmo shirt.
So I mention this to my daughter who is 9. Her response was the funniest of all. She told me, “Teenagers think that Cookie Monster is SOOOOOOOO gangster, but I like Elmo better.”
I, your humble fashion servant, had no idea that Cookie Monster was cool.
Have you seen this trend where you live?
