A puzzled baby dragon
Hello Everybody! Waxy Dragon here.
It has come to my attention that Dragon School will be starting up again the day after Labor Day this year.
I don't know why I have to go again this year. After all, I went last year.
But while The Sunday Funnies are still a couple of weeks away from our annual School Salute, I got to wondering about all the changes that parents complain about that us kids don't understand.
Such as...

Falling asleep in the back of a station wagon.
NOW... if the wagon was stationary, how did the pioneers cross the frontier and go west to discover everything out there???

Using a typewriter.
Time marches on.
NOW... besides the obvious question of "What's a typewriter?"
Why did you need to write any type to begin with?
Was this something important?
And what is type anyway?

Renting a VHS tape at the local video store.
NOW... I have no idea what VHS is. I've checked the TV listings several times and still can't find out what channel that is.
I do know the local video store is where they have all these great big flat screen television sets that are really neat and it would be great to have one, but Bubblehead (the human that's supposed to be looking out for me, but usually I get him out of trouble) says owning one is too expensive and unnecessary, since our TV is just fine.
I've always got to get up off the couch and change the channel by hand, and why is everything in black and white?

Bubblehead once told me, "I remember my very first VCR. It was in Beta format."

Taking photos with a film camera. Some kids may have never even used a real camera.
NOW... I have absolutely no idea what this is all about. My camera works just fine. Whenever the memory card is full, I just download it to my computer and can take more pictures afterward.

Using an encyclopedia as a reference for a report.
NOW... I think this one might be a mistake. After all, there are several great encyclopedia based websites on line.

And finally: Licking a postage stamp.
NOW... Why would I want to lick a postage stamp???
You just peel them off the sheet and stick them on the envelope.
But I still don't understand why it's called "snail mail".
After all, have you ever actually seen a snail delivering the mail???

And on that note♫, have a great week everybody and please be back here again next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!—wd.
