Word on the street: Pirouette
Spinning around or rotating on one foot or on the points of the toes, as in ballet dancing.
Abby meets Chris to show off her new shoes from the Shoe Fairy. When Telly walks in without any shoes, Abby tells him that he should make a shoe wish so the Shoe Fairy will come and give him his first pair of shoes. Telly can't decide on which pair of shoes he wants, so he asks the Shoe Fairy to surprise him. The Shoe Fairy picks out running shoes that make Telly's feet run faster and faster all over Sesame Street.
But they decide running shoes are not the right shoes for Telly. Instead, the shoe fairy gives Telly ballet shoes that make him leap and twirl. They make him very dizzy, so finally the Shoe Fairy gives him some sensible brown shoes with a heel. But they're elevator shoes that make Telly go higher and higher, which he hates!
Upset that there's no pleasing Telly, the Shoe Fairy takes the shoes away and disappears. When Telly returns to the ground, he realizes that, without shoes, his feet feel great and his toes can roam free. Monsters just don't need shoes to protect their feet like people and fairies do!
