Mostly I was vaguely remembering being 5 years old in China and given my first handkerchief and being told that I had to wash it every night so that it’d be clean and dry the next morning. (And being not very good at that task at all. And being secretly happy when we moved to the US soon thereafter that I didn’t have to have handkerchiefs anymore.) So I really wanted our favorite grandpas to be diligent about their handkerchief washing.
Also I wanted to draw Bucky with braids (kind of how I imagined his hair during the motorcycle ride in Advanced Happiness Skills.) Yay Hair Club!
