Well, I guess I was wrong. It's time to play Wall of Text and our contestants are Liz and Iris.
Panel 1: Iris leads off by yelling Liz that watching over Jim reminds her of when she was a young mother. She used to watch over her children just like this, just like this.
Panel 2: Liz says that she too wants children to screech at one day. Iris sets up the strip of destiny by telling her she's sure she will. She then delivers a chunk of verbiage about teaching him about Life's complexities, joys and sorrows.
Panel 3: She then says she now knows something about life in that it takes courage to live it to the fullest. Jim has courage. Liz agrees.
Panel 4: She goes on to remind Iris that Jim has her. I wonder if she'll remind her that Jim will be dancing with his Twoo Wuv into the Great White Void tomorrow.
Summary: All we need now is for Iris to tell Liz that she's become a buttercup of the winter to which Liz replies that that's fool talk.
Prediction: Kindly ignore my crack about Jim and Marian. It's obvious that tomorrow's strip will be Anthony and Liz's turn at playing Wall of Text. For Better or For Worse: in with realism, out with glurge.
