Hey, kids. This is Drano P. Drudge, your new editor here at Wanna Bet? You're probably wondering what happened to LD, aka Granola Brain. She went to some computer conference in California. I walked into her office to empty the waste basket. I noticed she was working on the Wanna Bet? Magazine. I thought, hey, I could do this. So here I am. She'll no doubt thank me when she gets back.
First off, whadaya say we dispose of the dog? Do you like that dog? An what sort of name is Mr. Browse? I guess it's some kind of computer thing. I mean, I know Andy wanted a dog because he was lonesome. But I always thought Andy seemed like a kid who would have an iguana--or a ferret. My friend Al had a ferret and it smelled really bad. He never cleaned the cage. If you have a ferret, PLEASE clean the cage! Maybe Andy could have a hedgehog. But most of them live in England and it costs a lot to fly them over here. Anyway, lemme know what kind of pet Andy should have--other than a dog. (VOTE NOW!!!) And I don't want to hear from all you cat people either, telling me about your cute little kitty cats. Because my kitty cat Pudgy is the CUTEST, SMARTEST, and FRIENDLIEST kitty cat in the world.
Now this is important: You kids HAVE to help me out. Send me your drawings, poems, and songs. Now that summer is here, you have nothing to do but write and draw. Me? I have to get back to emptying wastebaskets. Tell you what, I should have stayed in school. But that's another story. Catch you next time if Granola Head doesn't catch me first!
P.S. Enjoy the summer. Amanda gave me some ideas of what she's doing for fun. And my friend Al P. Habet is a librarian. He gave me a list of good books to read. So I'll pass that along to you, too.
