    Too bad I wasn’t as clever as a kid. To think of all the time I wasted waiting around for after lunch!

      Bah. It’s only morning, but I could really go for some dinner. Maybe even a late night snack.

        I think from here on out, we should just make every meal “late night snack” meal.

    “After the housework is done” – my mother’s blackmail into getting us to help. Can the house be clean by 8AM? You betcha!

      Your mother clearly knew what she was doing!

    I wonder if that would work for my boss… I could tell him that I actually just finished lunch, thus I should get to leave in four hours!

    1. Nicole Smeltzer Avatar

      Definitely worth a shot.

    A meal-based system of time tragvel – genius!

    1. Nicole Smeltzer Avatar

      Kids are fountains of such genius!

    Squish totally agrees with that idea. If I say “after lunch,” he says “This cereal IS my lunch.”

    1. Nicole Smeltzer Avatar

      Squish knows what’s up.

    I do believe in a meal based time travel … that way I could always get everything done before dinner

    1. Nicole Smeltzer Avatar

      Hahahahaha! It’s a pretty good system?

    Way to out smart the system. If you can have breakfast for dinner, you can certainly have lunch for breakfast.

    Yay, a Middlest Sister story starring Tess!!! When did this story take place? In the previous two stories, Tess hadn’t even been born yet.

    1. Nicole Smeltzer Avatar

      Oh, I’m not sure… at this point, things get jumbled up :)

    I knew exactly what you were referring to when I read the title of the post. I got all fangirly.

      I don’t think a day goes by that I don’t reference HHGTTG :D

    Meal-based-time-travel… this could change everything.

    1. Nicole Smeltzer Avatar

      You are right. I have had two breakfasts today. I’m not sure if that means I went backward or forward in time, though.

    I can’t believe I never thought of that.

    1. Nicole Smeltzer Avatar

      It’s amazing what kids will come up with to get what they want.

  20. Emily Avatar

    So, Nicki, did you and your siblings actually test Tess’ theory, or not?

    1. Nicole Smeltzer Avatar

      Not that I remember. For all we know, it works!

  21. morristownmemos by Ronnie Hammer Avatar

    Sure it works. Uh oh: doesn’t it work?

    I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! Hopefully I’m doing it right and you’ve not got it yet. If you already have, take it as a token of my admiration (?) and award yourself the [insertawardhere] trophy. Good enough.

    Nothing ever comes fast enough in kid world.

    1. Emily Avatar

      And yet, everything comes much too fast in adult world.

    P.S., Does the meal-based system of time travel apply to birthdays as well? If I don’t eat birthday cake on my 30th birthday next year, then, according to Tess, would I stay 29 forever?

    Great comic! Where do you come up with ideas for each comic?

    Meal-based time travel – why didn’t someone think of this before? Scotty, beam me to my birthday cake from August 8, 1971!
