    Actually, this is a carefully concocted plan to make them want to do better in school, and someday go to college.

    Today they visit the high school drop-out in his work environment…
    Tomorrow, in arithmetic class,
    they calculate a month’s take-home pay at minimum wage,
    and subtract a month’s worth of bills.

    No, wait…. they haven’t learned yet about negative numbers.

    Wallaby, a few inches from your comment there’s a blurb titled “About Agnes.”


    It says “just before little girls discover boys and appropriate social skills….”

    So I’d guess 10-ish?

    He looks like one of Robert Florence’s characters on “Burnistoun”. Love this!

    Calvin is six. I don’t recall ever seeing a specific age for Agnes.

    It is a group identification males wearing ear rings. But then men and women for centuries have worn make up and jewelery and piercings unlike the majority today.

    I think some strip referred to 4th grade – that would be 9 or 10 yrs.

    Agnes is enjoying the so-called field trip. Anything to get out of class.

    Excellent question Agnes. Don’t forget to ask about his hair.
    .
    I recall my mom being horrified when at 6, I asked the receptionist of my dentist… How did she get her hair like that? She had the tallest beehive I had ever seen. Think Yeoman Rand on Star Trek. (the blond)

    I once mortified my mother by asking – out loud – why some poor old soul on the bus was bent over and didn’t have any teeth. My mom made a quick recovery – “She doesn’t have anybody at home to love her.” I was about four or five, and it DID make an impression on me!
