Ian McKellen Teaches Cookie Monster Self-Control on SESAME STREET
"Say there was ... a golden ring. And you really, really wanted this golden ring. It was like your precious..."
Sir Ian McKellen appeared on Sesame Street recently. In this segment he teaches Cookie Monster about resistance and self-control. You know that urge we get sometimes when we want something really, really badly? Well, McKellen wants us to resist that crap!
You shall not pass! Please resist!The word resist means to control yourself and stop yourself from doing something you really want to do, though that's not a word that Cookie Monster really understands. Ian McKellen demonstrates.
So, our homework assignment for the rest of the week will be to put self-control into practice. We can do this! I'm gonna go eat a cookie now. Seriously.
