This is all old news, but Oh Well; The Pancake Princess as seen by Peter Otterloop, Jr.
I'd drawn myself into a corner with the preschool play as I had no clue about it beyond the title and suddenly it was curtain time. There's a whole genre of plays written solely for kids to perform as school plays and I've seen enough of them to've developed a severe facial tick. So I knew what to expect. But I needed what Petey might call a distancing mechanism to disguise my ignorance of the actual plot; in this case, Petey's POV was a great disguise. A technical note: the texture in Sofie's hat is a litho crayon, which I can't use without making a mess. Petey's neater than me.
A few alert readers pointed out the Kevin Bacon joke. It was entirely accidental but I take full credit for it.
Miss Bliss's music cur look is my favorite thing from this week (apart from the Kevin Bacon joke).
Also the third panel, which refers to a strip from July 26. This rewards alert readers and flummoxes everybody else (great way to run a comic strip).
The happy ending.
The meta ending.
And the completely unrelated Sunday. Coming next: Adventures in a Perambulator.
