    Isn’t Petey going to get heat stroke if he wears all that?

    Just stay inside Petey.

    @TEMPLO S.U.D.

    Would that then be an improvement on his condition(s)?

    Actually, the Arabs wear all that clothing in the desert to keep the heat off them.
    Not sure how it would work with Petey’s attire.

    Now roll Alice in sand while the sunscreen is still wet, to give her even more protection.

    Agreed, einarbt. When this arc was just starting, I said Petey should stay home in his Fortress of Solitude (A.K.A. bedroom) reading Little Neuro comics, and this just goes to suggest I was correct. Petey and sunny beaches just don’t mix—it’s like beets and mashed potatoes on his dinner plate, a Picky Eater’s no-no-never!

    What does Petey like, actually? Maybe a major research grant could be finagled to find out!

    We’ve seen Petey outside without all that protection. Must be only on overcast days.

    Yeah, but I don’t think he was out on a day long type activity. Usually, I’d say it’s to walk to and from school.

    Petey will be the new Dexter in a few years.

    I’ve heard that kids are little sunbeams of joy…I just never thought that the ‘sun’ part was short for ‘sunscreen.’

    “We’ve seen Petey outside without all that protection. Must be only on overcast days.”

    “Overcast” doesn’t cut it as a form of protection from the sun. When my dad was young, one overcast day he and some of his buddies spent a day on a little island out in Boca Ciega Bay, in their altogethers. The next day, hoo-EEE! Sunburn City.

    Oh, that happened in the 1920’s, before the Bust hit Florida. It was pretty sparsely populated out in the bay then. No bridges yet.
