    Agnes, I would say maybe forgetting was your gift….. had I not already claimed it as my own.

    Ah yes…Agnes plans for fifteen minutes of fame! Which is about as long as over exploited “gifts” tend to last. Treat it with respect if you want to keep it.

    Agnes is a deep thinker, and very under-appreciated.

    Agnes only wants to use her brain during the summer – it becomes a big back of nothing once school starts!

    I agree with Patsy. Agnes has an incredibly hard life, in some ways, with more thrust upon her than the ordinary child.

    Part of that is high intelligence with no outlet for understanding other than Trout, and physical attributes that could be called, at best, challenging.

    Her amazing efforts to shine in a world that seems to reject her at every turn are what make this strip funny and poignant.

    No one has ever told her it’s ok to relax.

    Agnes has this drive to be something more in this world. Something that can be a force in it. But she has some other things to get done first, like being all she can be. If she can remember what that is exactly. I think that when she does she will not forget. Until then she works on all kinds of schemes most of them are forgettable.

    Trout is her anchor, critic and sounding board. What a job that is.

    I remember growing up in the 60s and 70s…we were programmed to believe that every kid could grow up to be President of the United States, and that every kid should grow up to be president of something. What a relief to realise that those who were pressuring us hardest weren’t president of anything, either.
