I have been sitting at this bus stop flipping through the various articles of the newspaper that was sitting on the bench next to me for the past three hours, but I can’t seem to get my mind off of the comics page. It reminded me of my childhood when I used to have a big book full of Where’s Waldo? scavenger hunts. The problem is, I never was able to find Waldo in all my years of searching those colorful pages. My question for you today, Gerty, is quite simple: where IS Waldo???

Dear nostalgic St. Norbert student,
Believe it or not, I too have been pondering this very question recently as well. You see, Waldo and I were, for a time, romantically engaged. Beneath that hat and those gaudy red and white stripes that I always thought clashed so horribly, he truly was a swell guy. However, our love was a tragic one, for just as I thought he was about to propose to me, my wovely Waldo left without a trace. Perhaps my not-so-subtle comments about his tragic outfit finally got to him? I digress, I seem to have answered instead WHY Waldo is hiding rather than where he is hiding. If I had to guess, I would venture to say that Waldo is hiding somewhere between the man with a chainsaw and the dog wearing a top hat- he always loved well-dressed dogs...
P.S. If you thought finding him on the pages of that “big book” of yours was hard, try finding him in THIS crowd…
