… “I’ve never seen such a happy doll”
I also remember Daisy once saying “let’s make an Alergia on our own” xD

I find 5th panel amusing, it’s like Lucy is looking up to the speechbubble and blushes on what it sais xp

Everytime I read “Alegria”, I misread it at first as “Algeria”. I thought Daisy was talking about a trip they took to another country! XD

I think Tess’s old hairstyle was nicer, but it could just be that she doesn’t get drawn happy anymore.

Way back when, the middle school health teacher gave everyone a baby doll and split them into pairs for a “realistic parenting” assignment. Paulo ended up being partners with Daisy, and she named their baby Alegria. Paulo loved that kid. XD

I don’t remember Alegria…

*Brief look at the next page

OH, NOW I REMEMBER! In middle school, they were supposed to be trained to take care of fake babies. Paulo and Daisy worked together. Paulo was very caring towards the baby. It was nice, seeing him that way. :D

Tess needs to get over herself. Paulo is only two years younger than she is. I mean, if you like Paulo, just go for him, already! Mad Lucy

Paulo’s interaction with Alegria - was it in chapter 5? - was the cutest thing I have ever seen in BCB.
