World’s charmingest breakfast companion

Filed under: Hooper — Lex @ 8:44 pm

Hooper (smacking lips after a sip of lemon-lime soda [don’t ask]): Ahhhh. Boiled to perfection! (belches loudly for several seconds) You know, I never get tired of that.


  1. Once again, evidence that the nut doesn’t fall far from the tree…

  2. I’m sorry, but I have to ask…

  3. Tony: I’ve committed many beverage atrocities in my life, but boiling soda isn’t among them. That I can remember, anyway.

    Blair: Because the local Harris Teeter had no Domaine Dublere. Actually, he got the soda as a reward for being an outstanding camper. Problem is, if he drinks it at night he gets sugared up and won’t go to sleep, which we didn’t think about beforehand, so we’re letting him have it with breakfast.

    My mother says that when I was that age, I was just like Calvin from “Calvin & Hobbes.” The nut really doesn’t fall far from the tree. And if you thought that strip was funny back in the day, go back and read it now that you have kids. :-)
