    The dreaded plastic scissors, I remember them well.

    Again, 10 years ago, Richard posted a blog entry along with this strip:

    http://richardspooralmanac.blogspot.com/2009/05/pop-pop-synchronicity.html

    He was kind enough to post the other linked strip’s image there; its author perhaps pointed to this in a comment at his strip (can’t say for sure, since embedded hyperlinks, which were legal in GoComics comments back then, are now inactive within the comment):

    One school I went to had 50% lefty scissors. Of course, far less than half of us were lefties. Since I could make my left hand work, I just grabbed a lefty pair and let the others fight over the rest.

    I miss the days of country living. Every kid I knew carried a pocket knife, as did I, even at that age. Short blades, but adequate to cut fishing line, whittle, learn first aid, and easily deal with that bit of mowing.

    Whoever that was, s/he was genius-level in passive-aggressive.

    Even as a kid I hated those pop-pop mowers. And son-of-a-gun if I didn’t get my own kid one when he was of an age, followed closely by questioning my own sanity.

    secateurs: a pair of pruning clippers for use with one hand.

    Patience is the lesson of the day. It will take Alice much longer than expected to cut the weeds with her rather blunt baby scissors, and Beni’s pop pop mower won’t mow….
