    Ah… the ups and downs of prepubescent sensitivity!
    Yesterday’s joke is tomorrow’s heartache…
    today’s offense is next week’s endearment.

    I’ll never forget being 11!

    Sorry I didn’t get a chance to come back yesterday… I hadn’t expected a reaction to my comments.


    Jo-Jo… I agree…. and I hope this strip lasts till then, at least…


    Thanks Hunter… and I agree with your assessment of Bob….hope some day he either achieves his dream, or finds one that works better for him.
    Actually, I could say the same for our heroine.


    And thanks, Lovecraft…. that was kind.

    Actually… you, and anybody here who wants to, can email me
    … I posted info at the June 6 2006 strip.

    Think this falls more under the heading of tactlessness. The “b” word is getting overused. Save it for when it really fits.

    Agnes is just being sarcastic because of Trout brining up her abnormally long feet. Sensitive spot for her.

    Technically, it was just a question. It looks like, “I really can’t tell whether your feet are long.”

    “The “b” word is getting overused. "
    -
    Besides which it isn’t gender neutral. We manly men want to be b too but, alas, such is not to be.

    Personally, I just think what a good time Agnes could have at barefoot skiing. If she had to walk through snow or bogs, she’s be a shoe-in, so to speak.

    Not sure which b word was being referred to, the typical word describing a female dog (i.e. My bitch is in heat), or the b word in the comic, i.e. bully, which can apply equally to either gender.

    clicked on your link…. … I haven’t been reading Agnes for quite so long. Or I would have remembered that gem. I, like Agnes, strive to organize and do stuff for … summer, winter whatever. …. but darn! Its the making of dinner and doing of laundry that get in the way.
    .
    I was going to make fun of Trout, but she has nothing the same size as Agnes’ feet.

    Hunter… actually, I hadn’t read it either, though I like going back in the archives and reading old arcs.


    I just chose a date my creaky brain might remember… 060606, in case I ever want to edit or delete my contact info.
    But it turned out to be a great strip. Then again, they mostly do!

    “or the b word in the comic, i.e. bully, which can apply equally to either gender.”
    -
    nah, can’t be, because you can never overuse the word “bully” in identifying bullies.
    So it must be the other.
    (Besides isn’t the feminine form bullett?)
