Calm Candiru

Saturday, 27 June 2009

Now that Elly is forced to deal with the more active and thus more cruel, evil and unfair of her offsprings, it should be obvious that her whining will be answered by John saying something stupid.

Perhaps later in the summer; right now, Lynn's going to disappoint the guy who wants time frozen in place because the passage of time sickens him.

Panel 1: We start off with Elly, carrying her usual monster load of laundry, looking on as an angry Mike yelling "I hate that dumb kindergarten an' I'm never going back. EVER!"

Panel 2: She kneels down and reassures him by saying that he doesn't have to go back; it's over for the summer and in September, he starts Grade One.

Panel 3: She then cheerfully tells him that he'll never have to go back to kindergarten again.

Panel 4: After this has had some time to sink in, Mike cries in anguish. Reason: he has nothing to complain about any more.

Summary: Not only is he sad that kindergarten in done, he's afraid enough of change that big kid school scares him shitless. If I didn't know he was Elly Patterson's son, this would tell me that he's Elly Patterson's son.
