Cul de Sac by Richard Thompson for May 15, 2015
Ernesto: Peter! Peter! Petey: Hey, Ernesto. Did you find that Fountain of Age? Ernesto: No! Ha ha ha! It was a fool's errand! A madman's quest! I ended up hiding in the janitor's sink all through recess to avoid the principal! Ernesto: I'm a broken man! A shred of my former self! My outer sweater is ruined! I even lost my curl! Ha ha ha ha! Petey: When Mom asks, "How was your day?" I'm going to shrug and grunt, just like always.
