Snuffleuphagus...

"... in your head, in your he-e-e-ad
zombie, zombie, zombie-e-e-e-e-e-e"
- Zombie, Cranberries


I see you.

I feel you.

I know you are here.

You are with me all the time...

...your presence as calming as the sound of a gently flowing brook in the woods.

You are everything I'm not, everything I want to be, everything I wish I was...

You give me joy, keep me sane in the midst of this well organized disorder...

That long drink of cool water on a hot, dry day? That's you

Your voice is the ointment that cools hot cuts and relieves intense pain...

Oh the comfort i have just knowing you are there...

And what's more?

I am the only one who knows you are...



You are my Snuffleuphagus


* Snuffleuphagus is the name of the brown elephant-like monster that was seen only by Big Bird in Sesame street, so it stands for someone or something that others believe is just a figment of one's imagination*

Snuffy was a crack addict.
he had a heroin problem which is why he spoke the way he did and why he never did anything about those eyebrows.

NaijaBabe said...

imagination running wild. lol

Carlang said...

I still don't know what Snuffy looked like.
I believed Big Bird.

Everytime Big Bird said here comes Snuffy i and my sister would scream and hide behind the couch..

What are you doing? My mum would ask.

"Shh." We replied. "Just tell us when he is gone. We're not supposed to see him."

SO , sadly ,i never met Snuffy.

I hear he looks like a cross between a porcupine and fish?
True?

CooL!

Afronuts said...

naijaleta said...

Wow! How cool of you to write a blog on snuffleuphagus. I have tried to google that thing or check it in a dictionary several times but I just could never get the spelling right. Not that I dont know what it meant I just wanted to hear what google says about it.
Have you seen this film before, 'Drop dead, Frankie'? It's about a grown up lady with an overbearing mother who also had a snuffleuphagus named Frankie.
Anyway, so I googled the term before I came to comment and guess what the first link on Google was, your blog!
And your lips are not half bad. Very kissable!

Tairebabs said...

ok the name snuffleuphagus caught my attention immediately. I knew I had heard it somewhere but I couldn't remember where until I got to the bottom of the post and saw sesame street.

I love that song by Cranberries. I can't believe someone else still listens to it.
