* MarkPrindle points out some FridgeLogic in "Alma Mater", where the recent high school graduate narrator refers to a classmate as "Little Betsy", which sounds more like something an ''adult'' looking back on their school days might say.

** Alternately, he's reminiscing with his long term friends who are graduating with him -- the ones that have been friends with him long enough to share elementary school experiences.
