    Kinda creepy and gross all at the same time.

    Hey, look! Eight year-olds acting like (slightly daft) two year-olds. A nice change of pace.

    If you know eight year-olds who sincerely believe that snowmen could use a hot drink, well, good luck to them. My point is that they are not acting like nuclear engineering majors, for once. And at least for a change they’re shown in the act of learning something, instead of knowing everything already.

    My neighborhood was so poor hot chocolate was some kind of a rare delicacy. In fact I don’t remember ever drinking hot chocolate until I was grown and could pay for it myself.

    Gee whiz! Thanks for the show of compassion for me. To show my gratitude, I’ll do something you wouldn’t do in a million years: concede a point.
    Sure, the kid may have stolen his kid sister’s hot drink, causing her to erupt in a bawling fit. And then he could have made a mess, just to see what a mess looks like. (He’s probably never made one before, right?) Then, just to put a funny twist on it, he could have made up a “joke” for the janitor about the cool “lesson” he’d taught himself.
    Yes, eight year-olds do goofy things that make no sense to us adults. Your reading is possible. Absurd, yes, but certainly, plainly possible.

    PS As ever, you have missed my larger point: Nearly all the kids in “Frazz”, not just Caulfield, come off as geniuses, wise beyond their years by miles and miles. Mr. Mallett thinks that’s funny, I guess, but to me it’s a precious conceit. So rather than “look down on … everything”, I was paying a compliment, saying that it’s a nice change of pace to show kids acting like kids. You were so busy feeling sorry for me, you didn’t catch that, it appears.
