I love this chapter just because I love the phone call and Clifford's quip about "So everyone but Rowlf" when Mom said that anyone who calls her mom or Grandma can come to the swamp. Good girlie fun with Betty Sue and Stacey, but then that last line. Uffda. Tough, but true. Reminds me a little of how I felt on 9/11. I was 19, but suddenly felt 30.
