Snarky Candiru2

Wednesday, 10 February 2010

Let's hope that we do get a new-ruin or two this week to explain things; I'd hate to lurch right into the learn-from-experience strip without any reason for Connie to actually feel foolish. That is, of course, unless we get a week's worth of new-ruins that have Phil on the phone with Elly saying things like "She just stood there like a statue frowning for ten minutes and then said 'Good night' before sending me on my way; if that's not a brush-off, I don't know what is."

Crap. We're at the "dumb things" strip.

Panel 1: We see Connie in bed thought-bubbling "Why did I do it? I threw myself at him! Why? Why?"

Panel 2: She stares at the ceiling as she thought-bubbles "I made a fool of myself! If only I could turn back the clock!"

Panel 3: Her next attempt at self-recrimination has her remind herself that she's she's thirty-five, she's a mother and she's still doing dumb things.

Panel 4: She next whines out-loud "Who says we learn from experience?"

Summary: You'll notice that she doesn't seem to notice that Lawrence's needs had to be taken into consideration. You'll also notice that she doesn't want to learn from her experiences; if she did, she'd have to admit that the world doesn't revolve around her and her idiotic whims. If we have to look at her decide that she needs to change how she looks instead of how she thinks, I think that the people on gocomics.com are going to have to eat crow.
