... sat down. He finally
saw what Bobby was wearing and stood back up."Bwhaaaaaa! What are you wearing?"
asked Hank."That's another thing," said
Moss. "Hank, I can't let Bobby start coming to school dressed as
some fantasy creature. You're gonna have to take him home and make
him change. And he can't come back to school until he's dressed like
a normal kid."Hank grabbed Bobby and dragged him out
to the car. When they began driving, Hank started his lecture."Those books you're reading are
giving you crazy ideas. You are now forbidden to read them.""But-" began Bobby."No buts," began Hank. "I'm
getting rid of those clothes too. And take that stuff off your eyes!
You look like you're in some kind of panda cult!"When they got to the house, Hank made
Bobby go inside while he waited by the truck. A few minutes later,
Bobby came out of the house in his usual shirt and short pants. Hank
then took Bobby back to school.That evening at the alley, Hank, Dale,
Bill, and Boomhauer were drinking beer."I don't know what's wrong with
the boy," began Hank. "First it was babies dressed as
strawberries and Trolls, then capes, and now...Ninjas." He
shuddered when he said that last word."Tell you what Hank, this is a
dang 'ol fad and dang 'ol fads don't last man and pretty soon he'll
move on to the dang 'ol next thing." said Boomhauer."I hope you're right Boomhauer."
