I was very proud of her little act of defiance here. It can be hard to express emotions without words, but I think she drove it home (even WITH Vachel’s willful obliviousness)
(sorry the delay, i thought I had put friday and saturday’s strips up already)
As a kid, I often wished that words could make a thing true, especially when I felt reality was getting in the way of fun/sweets/whatever I was doing.
Too often I have found myself being “moral,” and then in the same situation understanding the challenge. Although, for Vachel, I’mnot sure that saying “no” is much of a challenge.
I think when doing foolish things, it’s sometimes best not to test them first, or you might make an intelligent decision and avoid them.
