What a twist .. this was a fun story. :-)
I foresee Jeri wanting to ‘hang out’ in her little sister’s room, later that night ..
always nice to see Emmy Lou & Taffy return. :-)
One of the girls I dated while I was in high school (back in the 1980s) had a tattoo of a unicorn on her lower leg. I wouldn’t say it was ‘scandalous’ .. but it was certainly unusual, at the time; she was a bit of a pioneer. ;-)
She did always keep it covered-up, while at school.
Volleyball as a backdrop for the war between Luann & Tiffany was a recurring situation in this era of the strip; there was a similar sequence last year, just after Luann had her CPR training (which resulted in Bernice getting knocked cold).
The details you’re remembering may be from yet another storyline set at the volleyball court.
I wonder whether the same holds true for ‘buns of steel’.
I’d wondered why ‘you’ said that here, instead of on Super Fun Pak Comix ..
My favorite has always been “Robots Who Are Totally Also Cars”.
a continuing & separate Sunday narrative .. fun!
and definitely the sort of thing Heart is known to do, on occasion. :-)
These large bookstore chains usually have a magazine section, too, Jeri .. you could scoop-up a massive pile of glamour & teen mags to use as a carpet for your bedroom.
