Predictions

So how will the Liz - Paul - Granthony triangle play out? The possibilities are endless, methinks!

-- Paul accompanies Liz to the inevitable NYE party, where they meet Granthony and (choose one):

-- a scuffle ensues, to Liz's mortification, causing her to choose gentlemanly Granthony over base Paul

-- there's no confrontation, only Granthony slinking away, hopefully forever

-- Paul sizzles with unreasonable jealousy, causing Liz to choose humble Granthony over possessive Paul

-- Liz gets too loaded to make heads or tails of anything that's happening, thus no forward progression

-- Paul is shot and killed in the line of duty. Granthony comforts Liz.

-- Paul is distressingly late arriving in Milborough, giving Liz time with Granthony at Elly and John's Christmas party, which causes her to reconsider.

-- Paul has a fatal car accident en route to Milborough (credit someone at Comic Curmudgeon). Granthony comforts Liz.

-- Chipper + Suds 4Evah. Unlikely, IMO, since Paul announced his transfer, but can't be entirely ruled out.

-- Granthony surprises Liz with a diamond ring before Paul shows up.

-- Granthony plans to surprise Liz with a diamond ring, but sees her in an embrace with Paul, and slinks away, a la John the Comic Book Guy in Funky Winkerbean.

I'm sure I've overlooked other possible scenarios. Have at it!

Saturday, December 9

Panel 1: Hm. Well, a meeting is a good idea, but Liz's smugly closed eyes are a strong indicator that it's going to be all about what SHE wants, with no regard for what the long-term residents want.

Panel 2: More pompous speech. Now, this could be peculiar to my family, but that kind of talk, in my family, usually indicates that the speaker's control is hanging by an extremely fragile thread, and the speech will shortly explode into tears, screaming, cursing, or all three.

Panel 3: Aaaaand just what we've been discussing amongst ourselves.

Panel 4: I quite agree. And Liz is old enough...you know the rest.

Panel 5: For once, the pun is appropriate!
