Nancy’s charlotte russe

[Nancy, July 11, 1955. Click for a larger view.]

Nancy has asked Sluggo if he’d like to join her for lunch. What’s she having? Leftovers. “Naw---I hate leftovers.” Nancy wonders if she should have told him.

That treat that looks sort of like a cupcake? Not a cupcake. That’s a charlotte russe. It’s a New York thing. Nancy spoke of the charlotte russe in 1944. Today’s strip is the first in which I’ve noticed one.

Yesterday’s Nancy is today’s Nancy.
