Anyway, jeez, what does she have, the Black Plague?
Panel 2: FOOB animals are always terrified by noise. Liz's left eye looks green, but perhaps that's a colorist error.
Panel 3: Yeah, that is one of the drawbacks of village life: everyone has their own job with no backup. Still, the way she goes on about the community pitch-in spirit, one would think she could give her lesson plan to Aunt Marg or somebody and have her take over for the day...
Panel 4: Yeesh! I feel guilty now for thinking "I'm freezing!" while walking to the bus stop this evening, when I'm in California and it's 50 degrees.
Panel 5: Oh, I get it. Everyone else in town is sick too, so she'll get to stay home. Or will she be a martyr and teach to those two kids? At any rate, lucky her that she didn't have to travel far to the school.
Panel 6, 7, 8: Right the first time. Jeez, her nose is dripping!
Panel 9: Well, that is kind of cool! ETA: And let's see what we can glean from this view of Liz's house, apartment, half-house or whatever it is. A moose painting, a scratching post for Shiimsa, more Native art over the TV, plants, and a '70s-style sectional sofa. She's got it goin' on. I wish she'd accept that, instead of hauling all her worldly possessions back to Milborough every summer.
