After a quick confrontation with sister Sally about Peppermint Patty’s request for his baseball glove (without his actual involvement), Charlie Brown must deal with Lucy, ever the cynic with a kind of worldly wisdom. I love her exasperated question to Chuck in this strip.
Strange to think that doing a kind deed simply because you want to might make Charlie some kind of playground mystic. And yet that’s exactly the conclusion Lucy seems to draw.
Chuck’s journey is far from over, of course. We’ll come back to it as the week comes to an end.
