The quiet understated message in this strip completely tickles me: that if I have 7 pieces of cake, I get insanely silly, abrupt, and fork stabbing in what i think is humor in the moment. There is a bit of that gleam in her eye.
A small child (Quinn!) in my community told this joke. For some reason at the moment I found it hilariously funny.
Looking back, I have no idea why. but I’m glad I memorialized it.
I also still love how tree seeds fall like helicopters.
