Summary Edit

Pepper Ann decides she wants to dedicate her time to helping people and wants to start an advice column in the school newspaper. She reads the "Dear Debby" advice column in the local newspaper to "brush up on what the expert has to say" and finds a letter from a woman who is complaining that her husband never notices her and she never gets to spend any time with her son. Pepper Ann assumes that this letter came from her Aunt Janie, and thereafter devotes her time to making Janie feel loved.

Pepper Ann: Oh, and this is the first sleepover that Milo and I ever had. Who knew then that the constant grinding of his teeth would grow to be a soothing and familiar lullaby?
Aunt Janie: Must...Escape...Pepper Ann's affection!


  • "Dear Debby" is a parody of the advice column "Dear Abby".
