am the long-suffering sidekick of Ernie. I am more mature, analytical, and the voice of reason in our relationship. Some might view me as eccentric because I collect bottle caps and paper clips, play the tuba, and love Bernice, my pet pigeon. I’m not always a willing participant in Ernie’s escapades because I always sense that the tables are destined to be turned on me, or that I will end up with the short end of the stick! In the end, however, I always forgive Ernie, forever remaining his “old buddy.”
