Suzie Q Anteater and Ms Gerbil

Mrs. Suzie Q. Anteater will take the lead, Ms. Gerbil said. If I try to take over she might thump me hard on the head. We did not know what she was talking about, what did she know? We saw them parading down to town, going kind of ploddish and slow. I told you she’d take over, Ms. Gerbil’s eyes seemed to say. This made us laugh a little bit into our hankies that day. Mrs. Suzie Q. Anteater is the mother of eight or nine. You’d best do what she says and stand straight in her line.

These sound like names given to obnoxious teachers who insisted on absolutely straight lines when going somewhere. I always seemed to be the one that stepped out of line because I was a nonconformist!
