The boy is Sesame Street crazy. By which I mean he carries an Oscar the Grouch EVERYWHERE with him and talks about the characters as if they were his real friends. I had the same kind of attachment to Star Wars when I was little, so I get it.

Then we all went home and slept for four days, and when we woke up I was already planning next years party, because I am insane.
There you go, now you can say you were at the party of the year!
