    Some of the post-ers on this particular story arc seem to miss the point of a comic strip like FBOFW, which is to parallel real family life in order to make humorous but nail-on-the-head observations about parents and children via a few short panels. Artists like Lynn Johnston have a gift for speaking volumes in very little space. It takes the ability to take complex situations, establish and reduce them to their most basic essentials. That’s not as easy to do is it may seem. Lynn loosely based her comic strip on her own family, with some artistic license. As a result, her audience can recognize and laugh at themselves as they laugh at her stories.

    @ JPuzzleWhiz ~ That was me who called it. :→

    Whoa, people are being a bit harsh on Ellie here! Almost every mother has experienced losing sight of their child for a short time and felt that cold pit of fear in their stomach as panic started setting in. There’s been a few occasions in my life where I was shopping and felt a little hand slip into mine or take a hold of my pant leg; when I looked down there was a toddler looking up at me with wide eyes that said, “I thought you were my mother, but you’re NOT!” Then their mom would appear, both hugely relieved their little one was OK and upset that she hadn’t realized her precious child wasn’t right beside or following her, if even only for a few minutes. It used to be that while shopping in most any store on any given day you’d hear an announcement about a child whose mother was “lost” and would she come up to the service desk so their child could claim her. I’ve also escorted a number of frightened children, wailing because they can’t find their mother, to the service desk. It has only been during the past couple of decades that losing track of your child could put them at risk for abduction and the horrors that could bring. It saddens me that the days of (comparative) innocence when every family member, friends, and neighbors watched over the local children as they played as if they were their own. Yes, bad things happened to children back then too, but it certainly seems to me that child abductions have increased over the years and too often it’s by somebody known to the child and their parents. :-/

    @ Terec ~ It’s only psychologically disturbing if they wear a Scream or hockey Goalie mask, not if the kid is wearing an astronaut helmet while playing he’s in outer space. Goodness!.

    Over the years I bought and sold 3 houses in SoCal with the condition that there was no HOA or any other type of “Neighborhood Nazi” organization dictating what I could or couldn’t do to my house and yard. It wasn’t like I ever did anything outrageous to my property, of course. It was the principle of the thing. I was paying for that mortgage and living in that house, not anybody else. :-p

    @ Nabuquduriuzhur ~ FYI, the same goes for the opposite sex. I have yet to meet a guy with “leading man” looks who didn’t think he was “God’s gift” to women and who didn’t date only the most beautiful women (and then complain to me how they just couldn’t find somebody “real” to have a relationship with). The corresponding phrase describing that kind of man was “He’s a dog,” which is just insulting to the 4-legged variety.

    A guy is going to look. Women accept this. But ogling another woman in front of your own woman shows zero respect for either woman. A man who shows no discretion in public is unlikely to exercise discretion in private.

    There’s no better way to get a man to do what’s good for him than to frame it as a competition. Well-played, Betty, well-played!

    @ treesareus ~ Of course humans have tinkered with crossbreeding, hybridization, and grafting of plants in their quest to domesticate wild plants for agriculture. Archeological evidence indicates that humans began cultivating corn over 9,000 years ago and those pioneer geneticists were not only patient, but brilliant, in creating a nutritious, high-yield, and easily harvested food crop! But there’s a vast difference between that and gene-splicing animal/fish/insect DNA into domesticate plants destined for human consumption. The term “Frankenfoods” is an apt descriptive of the results of this type of genetic modification of plants! I don’t suffer from brumotactillophobia (fear of food touching/mixing with other foods), but I do prefer my corn not contain fish DNA and would rather enjoy a buttered cob separate from my broiled haddock.
