Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 16 September 2008

It's day two of AnnePrime's visit. It's obvious that she's the downtrodden figure of the last years in a younger body so I'm expecting a two-woman version of the Four Yorkshiremen sketch this week. I'm also expecting that RevElly will have something else to whine about afterward: two sick kids.

Actually, it's RevElly looking down her nose at AnnePrime.

Panel 1: She starts off by reminding RevElly that NeoSteve is at yet another convention, If he's not seeing clients, he's on the road.

Panel 2: She then tries to convince herself that it's not as though he wants to be away form her and the kids or anything. She should be more worried that Elly's left eye has just vanished but she's got bigger concerns.

Panel 3: Concerns like denying that her husband is a philandering piece of shit who steps out on her every chance he gets, for instance. Her bleating that his absences are all work-related, ha-ha-ha, I'd know if he were cheating, is starting to take on a desperate tone.

Panel 4: RevElly thought-bubbles the moral ("He's working and you're related") so as to indicate her condescending pity for the Queen of Denial.

Summary: RevElly should be grateful that her husband is far more interested in tinkering with things with engines than skirt-chasing.

ETA: At least the banner's changed. Instead of having Lynn smirk at us, we return to the "Friendships are Forever" thing from last year.
