Putting the Monday Muppet Moment To Bed In Style

As children, most of us loved a bedtime story, or maybe a lullaby.  If you remember fondly being read or sung to sleep, maybe you can identify with Elmo. Though most of us outgrow the need or desire to be sung to sleep, many may rethink that position after today's Muppet moment. I have heard of all sorts of bedtime routines, especially if you are having trouble getting to sleep. Some read, others have a glass of milk, others may count sheep. One thing you may not have tried is asking your sheep to sing. Throw in a toreador, Denyce Graves playing castanets, and an orchestra and you have, well, a bedtime opera by Bizet.
