Replace “school” with “work,” and welcome to adulthood, Linus.
This is why “The Peanuts Movie” made me cry.
Seeing Charlie Brown finally talk to her was just so satisfying.
sigh Sadly, postcards are a dying breed, as everyone just Instagrams everything these days. Can barely find them any more at museum gift shops and tourist traps.
I just came over from reading the comments at my local newspaper. I think I’m supposed to brand these kids “entitled millennials” and shake my fist at them.
As I recall, when this strip first ran, some pranksters actually did go and put a picture of Paige on the page for warthogs….
When he was a teenager, my brother wanted to shave half his head and dye the other half green. Our barber threw down her scissors and said she refused to do something so out-of-style. And that was the end of that.
Always remember, Charlie Brown: in the off-season, every team – even yours – is undefeated.
Reminds me of that Tom Hanks/Leonardo diCaprio movie “Catch Me If You Can,” where diCaprio played a young con artist. A recurring joke is Hanks asking diCaprio how he passed the bar exam to start masquerading as a lawyer. At the end of the film, diCaprio finally admits: “Same way everyone else does. I studied my butt off for three weeks.”
I remember my brother let his kids get their ears pierced when they were 2. When my mother asked why, my brother looked at her and, with a smug grin, said, “Because YOU wouldn’t let me get MY ears pierced when I was a kid!” Yay, parenting decisions made out of spite.
My best friend in high school did summer school, even though his grades were good. He came to the school halfway through a school year, and as a result, found himself a couple credits shy as graduation neared. He found going to summer school preferable to coming back for another full semester in the fall.
