    But don’t overthink it.

    I used to work in the pet dept. at Walmart. When young couples would come in saying they wanted an aquarium, I’d tell them, "Have a kid instead. They’re cheaper and easier to take care of.’’

    What type of aquarium? a 5 or 10 gallon freshwater one doesn’t take more than half an hour of work per week.

    She’s right about puppies being a lot of work, try a rescue dog instead. Right now the service I foster for has a 2 y/o male shih tzu that needs a home, he’s already trained and very loving. There are a lot of heart-breaking stories out there and all they need are loving homes.

    Hey! A kid who has a few things to learn yet, actually … learning! You don’t see such things often in “Frazz”. More like this one, Mr. Mallett.

    Nothing hypocritical here. She’s saying, “Don’t give yourself more work than you need. Then you won’t have the time and energy for my assignments.”

    Yes like puppies grow into adult dogs. What type of dog, how large do they grow?

    @Tom Flapwell

    Exactly the meaning Tom. I agree.

    I doubt any book report ever piddled on the carpet.

    I see no valid basis of comparison between getting a puppy and doing schoolwork. The teacher is supposed to make their students work, learn, and develop. If she’s doing it right, that makes work for her, too. And if she doesn’t, she is open to valid criticism that she’s not doing her job.

    At my public school I was never assigned a book report. I don’t know what they are. I can only assume that for a book report a book has to be read and then something written about it. Possibly something about the content of the book. But I’ve never done it. Books were a hostile and incomprehensible thing in our community, especially in our public schools. We didn’t even have a book store. Sports and holy roller type religions had all of the answers for us. Others got lost in booze and girlie magazines. And I’m talking about the teaching and administrative personnel in the public schools, not just the regular folks in the community.

    No, Herweh is right. If you lock a kid out of the house an aquarium is more work.
