‘T’ is for ‘traffic jam.’ Imagine hearing that from the Waze navigation app on your smartphone. Getting Cookie Monster to give you directions, and recapturing a little bit of your childhood, is as easy as a few taps of the screen. Here’s how to do it:

1. Download and/or open the Waze app.

2. Click the magnifying glass.

3. Tap ‘Settings.’

4. Choose ‘Voice and Sound.’

5. Tap ‘Waze Voice’ and choose ‘Cookie Monster.’

That’s all there is to it. And it might actually work. At least we know Cookie Monster can tell us how to get to Sesame Street. He might know his way around other neighborhoods, too. Or maybe he’ll always direct you to the nearest bakery. Just remember, ‘s’ is for ‘speeding ticket.’ Drive carefully!
