So, I'm doing a project on the muppets for one of my classes. Research is fun and entertaining and interesting. I've always loved the muppets, so of course it is. I can't remember how old I was when I first learned I shared a birthday with Jim Henson, but it's a little trivia tidbit that I have enjoyed knowing. I never really bothered looking into when and how he died before though. Today I learned he died of the same strain of strep which has been making me sick since I was 12 (including three times last year). Huh.
