Panel 1: Okay, something is really going on here. This is not an outbreak of teenage acne. This is one of the twelve plagues of Egypt. If I'm to believe this is really happening -- that a 14 y/o goes from clear skin to this in about 36 hours -- then I have to think that it's Kaposi's Sarcoma or something deadly.

Panel 2: Clutching her breasts again: how melodramatic. And is this supposed to be the result of picking, or of washing too vigorously? If the former, well, I've read the comments here about squeezing zits, and will add one of my own: If you immediately put an antiseptic bandage over the afflicted area, the redness and swelling will be gone shortly. You just have to WAIT for results.

I wonder if perhaps April is overreacting because she's always gotten instant gratification in everything, both from technology and from her coddling family. She's never really had to work for anything. Cold, I know, but I've long thought that about her; remember how stubborn she was about practicing when she first started learning guitar?

Panel 3: As my mom would say, "When all else fails, read the directions!"

Panel 4: Onomatopeia! Haven't seen that in a while! But..."doob"? ;)

Panel 5: Probably using too much of it. And it's probably not supposed to produce overnight results: more likely over a period of days. But perhaps we're seeing the shadow of April's new hairstyle. (And in that nightgown, she looks like a doll I used to have.)

nothing to see here, move along...
