Panel 1: Okay, so whatever was living in the guitar was evicted and she's been playing it. Do not need to see the sole of Laura's foot, though.
Panel 2: You know, I wonder: Is April the result of all this self-esteem building the last 15 years or so? When people appreciate my cooking, my stories, my singing, I take it to mean that I'm good at those things. What the flip kind of affirmation does she need?
Panel 3: Good on the facial expression there. Though I could do without the pity party. ETAAgain I meant April's facial expression. Laura, OTOH, looks like the Old Man on the Mountain.
Panel 4: Yeah! Just don't try to accomplish anything, because then you'll have no friends and live a lonely miserable life! ETA: D'oh! qn, I had not seen your post when I wrote that!
Panel 5: And Laura has slid down to the floor, buckling under the weight of her maturity. But "after you turn 20"? I thought she was Liz's age, give or take a year. Why 20 as the turning point, instead of 18 or 21? Another Canadian thing? And is it just to make sure everyone knows she's a hick, that Laura has to have those gigantic, knobby hooves?
