So, no. The Sesame Street gig was NOT an April Fool’s joke.

I was just on the phone with my parents and had the following conversation.

Mom: So where are you off to next?

Me: Well, I’m flying to New York next week.

Mom: Oh? What’s happening in New York?

Me: It’s the Sesame Street gig, and then I’m going to narrate Cherie Pr–

Mom: You mean that wasn’t an April Fool’s joke?

Me: Um… No. I mean, the joke was that I presented something that was absolutely true but presented it as if it was a joke.

Mom: [off phone] Ken! She’s really going to be on Sesame Street!

Dad: [in background] What? I thought that was an April Fool’s joke.

Clearly, I need to call home more often… But I thought I had told them. Honest.
