    Don’t be alarmed folks, it’s merely sometimers disease.

    Just when you’re sure you have the answers, you forget the question. True in school and true in life.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    When I did this drawing, I actually felt my arm waving in the air desperately wanting to answer a question — it brought me back to my grade school days. I never missed an opportunity to show off. It was always disappointing to have the teacher ask someone else, someone less energetic than myself. There is one serious drawback to being chosen after such a wild display of shoulder-wrenching arm gestures, however: If you get the answer wrong, you look pretty darned silly!!

    You should have slouched down and tried to hide. Works best with a " I don’t have the faintest face."

    Having been homeschooled myself, the answer is usually no. I was one-on-one with a tutor, so there was much more face time and questions and answers were done far faster.

    Nothing seems odd about his arm in the last panel. He is relaxing his chin on his palm, probably body language that he is thinking to himself.

    This so reminds me of an episode in high school.The nun asked me a question and i wasn`t paying attention.She repeated the question to me and w/o thinking i said " I don`t know the freaking answer." Except "freaking " wasn`t what i said.Got 2 months of detentions for that one word plus other terrible tortures.

    On any test, what you know doesn’t count,
    Its all about do you know the answer to the specific question being asked.

    Re yesterday’s strip:
    My sister was chewing gum in class, and teacher noticed.
    “Carol, are you chewing gum?”
    (gulp) “No, Maam!”
