Petey Buys Some Pants



It's almost Back to School time here in Arlington County, where most schools let out late for the summer and starts up right after Labor Day. And time to buy new pants. This is from a few years ago and, once again, torn from the pages of the Cul de Sac book.

They all look beige to me too, Petey. And that's a good thing.

I tell you, Mom Otterloop is bowling me over lately. She's really getting to be my favorite person, strip after strip. How did that happen? I thought it was Alice I couldn't get enough of.

"Who is that handsome boy? Why it's Petey Otterloop!" -- Ha ha, she's perfect.   : )

Beige works for me!

Merci beaucoup, Anais.

Paul, glad to hear it, 'cause I like her too, especially when she's loving her kids yet kinda embarrassing them at the same time. As mothers sometimes do.

Hmm, yes indeed.

Now I'm not referring to the dressing room itself but I was well into my 20's before my Mom stopped going into the dressing room area w/ me while yelling at me that, if neccessary, she could "take them up".

this is one of my favourites so far. maybe because of my own memories of shopping for beige pants with my mom, mixed with (older) memories of my siblings & i hiding under the clothesracks at sears. i guess the word here is "dead on". (except it's two words.)

Alice. In her own world.

My copy of the Cul de Sac book has been on pre-order since July 2 (and was hanging around in my Amazon cart for some time before that). When does it ship again? :-)
