my brother was also the letter carrier of last resort.
Kate, subversive Kate. I love her!
OMG, the Holy Grail!
The best laid schemes o’ horse an’ Danae
Gang aft a-gley.
a mud-lettered day for Danae.
No such thing as “a perfect plan”. Nothing is perfect.
In the first panel, they paraphrase Sondheim and Gershwin.
Well done teacher. When the lines of official communication are not working, use a go-between.
What I don’t get is this, why doesn’t she just email Joe directly?
Close, but no cigar
The best laid plans ’a mice and men gang aft agley. Robbie Burns
“Snitches Get Stitches”
The teacher learns.
Her missing every treasure reminds me of The Curse of Oak Island. 9 years and a fine collection of old buttons and nails.
I wonder what Kate is hiding.
Stalin would have ended up a bar tender if Kate were his little sister.
I wonder if the teacher actually said that, or if Kate just swiped the latest letter from under the bed?
The teacher FINALLY got smart!
Why the teacher hadn’t used the TELEPHONE by now…. ? Seriously, we use email these days. Even at my Title I school, families without computers still have cellphones. Though, some families have had their service cut due to lack of payment.
cue the ominous music
The T. rex skull being so close to the surface proves they lived up until very recently
That she just missed so many great treasures made me think of The Detectorists!
From being in deep dirt to being in deep sh*t.
I would have gone with fire; much more fun and easier than all that digging, though I do like how the single minded focus on deception is making her miss all the treasure right around her.
To say nothing of email. . .
The teacher is on to Danae.
I always feel like that when I dig a hole. The best I’ve ever unearthed is a bungie cord last year that was still good. Probably got buried when this house was built in 96
I think that Danae’s very smart with all effort she avoids trouble or work.
So many missed opportunities when someone says “deep enough”. Of course Danae is about to find a new definition of deep when she gets home.
Kate the reliable one of the sisters.
In Elementary school my teachers would give letters about me, to my sister to deliver to my parents.
Ah, “the best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft a-gley!” (Thank you, Robert Burns)
Many teachers are very good at finding “Alternate channels of communication”.
The teacher’s wised up to you, Danae. ;-)
Curses,foiled again!!And she has to take a bath besides!!
Too bad this was based on a conspiracy theory.
