What if the world went suddenly Peanuts

Our kids got a Peanuts anthology for Christmas. I don’t who was more excited – the kids or my 44 year old husband.

Peanuts, 1961-1962

Which Peanuts character are you? It’s pretty easy to spot the Schroeders, Charlies, Sallys, Lucys and Linuses. But who among you is a Marcie or a Peppermint Patty?

If the world were to suddenly turn Peanuts I would wake up as Lucy Van Pelt. You may call her bossy. I prefer the term spirited.

And here I am imagining what I might find if L.A. turned Peanuts overnight…

My daughter triumphant about finally having a dog – and get this – one so cool he can beat me at arm wrestling. Does life get any sweeter?

Oh, and on the weekends soccer would be replaced by baseball. Everytime I missed the ball I would get to say “The moons of Saturn got in my eyes,”

“Happiness is anyone and anything that’s loved by you.” – Charlie Brown

If your world turned Charlie Brown, what would you do and how would it look?
