When I was first planning out 'Peter's Christmas Conundrum' (at that point, it wasn't even a Christmas story!), this comic was originally the first strip in the sequence - but as I developed it further, it just seemed odd to drop Peter and co. into this situation without any sort of context vis-a-vis the 'Wendell Paradox'; especially since new readers might not know who Wendell even was. Which is why I added the snow-ball-fight-gone-wrong intro (see Tuesday's installment) to the story, to give a concrete example of why Peter's mother might now have valid concerns about her son - and by extension, Timmy - hanging out with such a morally-dubious fellow as young Master Jones. Peter's umbrage is certainly justified (Wendell does come up with some fun ideas for things to do), but perhaps so is his mother.... if even half of the incidents she mentions are as bad as she's suggesting, Peter may well want to plug his Common Sense Unit back in again!
