I love Ernie and Bert. I particularly recall the nighttime scenes. I found a great website that details the plot outlines of Bert and Ernie:
Ernie insists on watching Bert sleep. He sings a song about sleep, initially to Bert's dismay. He soon falls in, though, and then finds that Ernie is the one who has fallen asleep!
I was thinking that we all are either Bert or Ernie in our relationships. I am Ernie--the exuberant botherer. My husband is Bert--the more sensible one who Ernie irritates. My sister-in-law is the Bert in her relationship, but only in comparison to her husband who is really, really an Ernie.
One of my friends insists that we each have a role in our little circle as well: the worrier, the fun-maker, the decider, the nurturer. . . .
So, are you Ernie or Bert? Does your answer change depending to whom you are comparing yourself?
