    Similar classes? What?

    I think it’s supposed to be “smaller classes.”

    that’s what happens with auto-correct and typed dialogue.

    emmyloufan: Is it true Emmy Lou has a sister that shares the same bedroom with her in seperate beds?

    I think Emmy Lou is having a sleepover with a girlfriend.

    It’s “similar” everyone from the original. In college…I always felt Sociology and Psychology were similar with the same people in my classes. Although the “Deviance” portion of Sociology was quite unique!

    Hey…I grew up with 12 brothers and sisters. I shared a bedroom with 2 brothers. And worse yet…a shared bathroom with 4 sisters. Painful guys!!!

    Maybe “similar” was a typo in the original. I still like david142’s suggestion. And I still think that’s a girlfriend and not a sister. There hasn’t been any indication of other children – especially not of Emmy Lou’s same age – living in the home. Fan1? Did Emmy Lou ever have siblings??!

    Correction everyone. My mom read my last post. She reminded me that there was “2 sinks” in the bathroom I shared with my sisters! Leave it to mom!!!

    Thanx for your comments. Have a wonderful day!

    Hi annieb1012! I think she was the only child. She had a dog Mary Ann though. I agree. Definitely a girlfriend on a sleepover. david142 is right. I always liked those smaller classes too. For similar reasons!

    I think it could be a sister! If you look closely, there are 2 separate beds put right next to each other..why have 2 separate beds?

    I agree with the previous posts—-smaller classes make sense. I hope it will be corrected soon.

    @comicbuff24 ** I was a teen girl in the 60s, and had a lot of sleepovers at my own and others’ homes. At that time, twin beds were the norm for kids of all ages; no one I knew had a double, and as far as I know, there was no larger bed than double at that time. (That’s why it was called a “full-size” bed.) While many girls had two single beds in their rooms, I don’t remember that they were pushed together as Emmy Lou’s are; I assume Marty did that in order to get everything she wanted in the picture without having to “stand way back,” so to speak, which would have made the girls’ faces too small.

    Come to think of it, maybe the term “twin beds” came from the fact that there so often were two singles in a room instead of a double.

    Looks to me like it’s her best friend, Taffy, who is in so many of the strips.
