    Good to see Loris again.

    In Petey’s shoes, I think I’d claim wolverine maulage as well.

    Great, Petey! You’ve given Alice another idea.

    But yea for Loris! I love having her around and haven’t seen enough of her.

    Oh, and rubber band attack is so dangerous. I have three sisters and remember….

    Alice gets to the heart of it.

    Is Petey a “C” student??

    Too bad Andre wasn’t there to provide the sound effects.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Petey is a C student, particularly in Math. In English and Social Studies there’s room to accommodate Petey’s skewed worldview and imaginative gifts, and even in grade-school Science there’s room for narrative, but a shoebox diorama illustrating multiplication of fractions isn’t going to get you very far.

    Besides, Petey lives in a universe in which nothing is certain, and there are ALWAYS unknown motivations underlying every question. The idea that there can ever be one - and ONLY one - exactly-right answer which holds true in all situations probably paralyzes him at test time.

    Of course, you’re going to have to get rabies shots now, Petey. Other than that, it’s a good plan!

    Too bad this didn’t run last week, when “Stone Soup” was having Rubber Band Gun Week…

    Alice picked up on the rubberbands, but not on the playground-wolverine story?? I’d think she’d send Dill to the playground immediately to check it out.

    I always thought math was conducive to imagination and creativity - I used a lot of those when I took math tests.

    Could that be why I kept failing Algemer?

    I’ve not met Loris before. What did a girl who gets an A+ ever do to deserve the surname “Slothrop”?

    She’s finally back!

    Topaz, she got the surname “Slothrop” because Richard Thompson has read “Gravity’s Rainbow.” (Not that there’s any discernible connection between Loris and Tyrone, even ironically.)
