Th-that is child abuse! Especially at a time when sugar free was bleh.
There is nothing wrong with allowing some exceptions once in a while to the no sugar rule.
I wish that were the case! Any relief woud have been welcomed!
I went through that too (though my mom didn’t mind Lucky Charms).
You lived a lucky and charmed life! 🙂
I did ( I think I sent away for a 4-leaf clover keychain thingy one).
I did had to click on this though for a cringe-worthy explanation on why water kicks ass, though I suppose they do a good job explaining it more than I ever got from a teacher back in the day, I just don’t get excited over plain tap water….
Is sugar related to drugs?
I guess it is!
You could say that again!
Do you find the sugar ban much more like the Prohibition back in the 20s?
Man, I have a similar comparison in part 2!
There is conclusive evidence that shows that it’s not sugar that makes kids hyper, but caffeine. Sodas such as Coca-Cola, and candy such as chocolate contain caffeine. Jelly beans and root beer don’t.
You know, that would have been great for my Mom to know 30 years ago!
My God.. Gabe, you have my sympathies. Holy crap, the hell you went thru. ESPECIALLY during that time went candy was perfect.
That’s why in Junior High all I wanted to do was go to Shaw’s Market for gummis!
I just stumbled across your comics, and I LOVE THEM ALL. Please keep sharing your stuff!
Also, am I crazy, or does Tab not have any sugar in it anyways?…
Thanks so much! Yeah, I guess Tab didn’t have any sugar, but we still weren’t allowed to have any soda at all 🙁
I would’ve gone with “Jolt” myself!
Tab is actually sugar-free. I’m excited to read this story arc though!
Well its good your mom saw the source of the problem then just saying you have ADHD and giving a bunch of ritalin…
Yeah, unfortunately that’s what was next for my brother… 🙁
