Goofus and Gallant

Kelly gets a magazine called Highlights for Children. One of the features is Goofus and Gallant, a four-panel comic which illustrates socially acceptable behavior. This morning I'm getting ready for the day and see the magazine open to G&G. The two lessons:

I guess I'm Goofus! I let my wife and kid decide when they are hungry (except on school mornings when Kelly must eat what we specify). And when I've had an argument with Jean, I generally need a while to cool down before discussing things rationally. Just call me Goofus "qbullet.smiley".
