From seaweed fights as a kid to seaweed wraps as an adult, not much changes.
How old are they to have all these electives?
Do you really want to get into a seaweed fight with a girl with a blackbelt? May be better to stick to pudding fights. Go get Spud!
Say, that really would be lovely. But we don’t have seaweed in Wisconsin. Would Lakemichiganweed work?
Let’s see—German in grade 1, add French in grade 4, piano and violin, dance, and comportment (taking tea properly, proper etiquette for meeting HRH The Queen, learning to curtsy, cotillion), all packed in to daily grade school that ran 8:30-4:15.
Today all of that is outside of school— No wonder they get let loose at 2:30!
Seaweed fights – it’s all well and good until someone gets conched in the head!
I love Wallace’s thoughtful expression in Panel the Fourth.
I really could use a seaweed fight to get my mind off this darn pandemic
Rose could use some thumb-twiddling time.
Mom.. is trying hard to keep Rose from having time to play with the riff-raff.
Too bad she didn’t leave time for Church
Ain’t that the truth? It’s one thing to help/urge a child to achieve, but they need some free range time to develop into well balanced normal humans.
Leave it to Wallace to figure out what’s important in Life.
Is Wallace suggesting Rose participate in the seaweed fight or that one should occur for her to break up as hall monitor?
During and after drugs swept through many schools in the 70s and 80s parents thought that if they over-scheduled their kids they would have no time for the drugs.
Will Spud be participating? Wait, what am I saying!
Am I really the only one who saw the paper airplane in panel 3?
