If you’re wondering how much trouble a kid gets in for a prank like that, the answer is A LOT.

By the way, I’m moving from Ohio to Florida to be closer to my family, so I’m afraid the paper is getting packed up for a few weeks. The girls will be back (and in paper) in May! :)

The Life and Times of Mr. Cotton, Part 2

This Part 2 of a three-part series. Read the first one here!

The Middlest Sister: The Life and Times of Mr. Cotton "Oh, no! Mr. Cotton and his pal Spike are lost at sea! Will Mr. Cotton be forced to eat his dearest and most faithful friend? Or will Poseidon take pity on these two rapscallions?"

The Middlest Sister: The Life and Times of Mr. Cotton, Part 2 "Mr. Cotton kicks up dust as he zooms away from Barbie's Dream House, having taken her for every penny she was worth"

The Middlest Sister: The Life and Times of Mr. Cotton, Part 2 "Waaaaaah! That was my grandmother's feather boa! Give it back, you scoundrel, you thief."

The Middlest Sister: The Life and Times of Mr. Cotton, Part 2 "Oh no! A myserious potion has transformed Mr. Cotton from his usual mild-mannered self to a grusome and toothsome monster! Will the potion wear off before it's too late?!"

The Middlest Sister: The Life and Times of Mr. Cotton, Part 2 "Tess, honey, it's bedtime. Put that hamster away now." "Okay Mom. Goodnight!"

The Middlest Sister: The Life and Times of Mr. Cotton, Part 2 "Goodnight Mr. Cotton. I love you. You're my best friend"

The Middlest Sister: The Life and Times of Mr. Cotton, Part 2 "My best friend"

The Middlest Sister: The Life and Times of Mr. Cotton, Part 2 "Doogie glares"

And now, here are some photos of the real life Mr. Cotton, possibly the best hamster who ever lived or ever shall live. I apologize for the poor quality; these photos were taken by children with a disposable camera.

I Want to Believe

My mom used to tell us the wildest stories about alien abductions, and I always swallowed them. I used to tell the kids at my school that my mom was even abducted once. No wonder I had such a hard time making friends. Years later, a girl walked up to me and sais “Oh my god, aren’t you that girl who used to talk about aliens all the time?” I said, “What? Nope! Not me!” and tried to walk away, but she said, “Yes! Yes it was! You said your mom was abducted by aliens!” It was pretty embarrassing. Maybe she will see this comic some day and say to herself “I KNEW it was her!”

Yes, I admit it, Brandis. It was me.

The Middlest Sister: I Want to Believe. "Sweet dreams, girls!"

The Middlest Sister: I Want to Believe. "Do you guys believe in aliens?"

The Middlest Sister: I Want to Believe. "What?"

The Middlest Sister: I Want to Believe. "I heard mom talking about these people who live in the mountains who say they've been abducted by aliens."

The Middlest Sister: I Want to Believe. "The aliens beam a light through your window at night when you're sleeping and it sucks you up."

The Middlest Sister: I Want to Believe. "They take you into their spaceship and do experiments on you."

The Middlest Sister: I Want to Believe. "When you wakr up the next morning, you can't remember exactly what happened. But you have a weird scar."

The Middlest Sister: I Want to Believe. "It looks like a duck wearing a little top hat."

The Middlest Sister: I Want to Believe. "But I don't believe it. Goodnight guys!"

The Middlest Sister: I Want to Believe. Awake
