I am at work. I do not need to be misty-eyed around my co-workers right now.
Jim Henson was the first celebrity death I felt a connection to. I literally grew up to the guy’s works. Plus I went to the same college as him. (U of Maryland-College Park).
I had a professor who had Jim as one of his students. He wrote at the top of his final exam, “I once told Jim Henson he should find more productive work than playing with puppets. Do not take my opinions very seriously, I have been wrong before”
I have some dust in my eyes right now (and I haven’t even watched the video yet).
