LISA LEARNS A LOT
by The FrinkMan
For the most part, Lisa Simpson tried to limit contact with her older brother. Bart was a walking, spiky-haired time bomb and Lisa preferred to stay as far away from the blast zone as she could. This was especially true whenever there was evidence he was up to no good.
But there was something about Bart’s recent behavior that puzzled Lisa. First, she noticed Bart looking at her strangely at times. Whenever she caught him doing this, he would look away quickly. One time she asked him, “What are you looking at?” She expected a smart-aleck answer, but Bart only mumbled “Nothin’, Leece.”
Second, she noticed an unusual pattern each day. After school, the two siblings would normally watch Krusty the Klown on TV, but Bart seemed to spend more time watching his sister than his favorite clown entertainer. And lately, Bart had started going upstairs to his bedroom before the end of the show.
