Elmo and the Missing Suitcase

Everyone is back home and all that is right and good has been restored. The balance in the force is back... The girls' trip went well except for one small tiny detail: When Mickie dropped off Mia at her parents she left her suitcase and took Mia's to Indiana. Whoops. Mickie ended up borrowing some clothes from some friends and shopping for some new ones. I guess she didn't want to try on Mia's Elmo undies.

Speaking of Elmo, the new Tickle-Me-Elmo is on sale at a retailer near you. Here is a sample video and there are plenty more to be found on YouTube.

Mia doesn't have the tickle version but she does have the tinkle version. She has an Elmo that when you put a bottle in its mouth has to go potty 20 seconds later. Apparently like little kids and women on trips, Elmo has a very small bladder... By the way, who has the job of making the Elmo potty sound effects? What a conversation piece that would be at a party.

What I really want to know is when are we going to see a combination of both? How great would it be to tickle Elmo and then have him have to go potty? You can't tell me that wouldn't be awesome. I even have a name: Tickle Me till I Pee Elmo or TP Elmo for short. Somebody has got to get on this.
