Am I Cookie Monster?

The New York Times interviewed Elmo about Money. Adorable!

Cookie monster is always on the hunt for a cookie- duh. He thinks he NEEDS it, but he just WANTS it.

(click on the bold-faced vocab words:))

If there is a blurred line between need and want on a potential purchase, I ask myself the cookie monster question. It has successfully deflected quite a few WANT purchases.
