I think my favorite part of this strip is Vachel’s slow sink into the vase. He doesn’t climb in, or jump in, he just kinda sits in it and sinks down.
I don’t know why that has always amused me so much.
Like yesterday, Ted again shows his inexperience in taking care of a small child.
And I’m not sure if Vachel is being helpful, or simply making fun of Ted’s error. Probably both. :)
A lot of the early strips were about Dee getting into unfortunate or odd circumstances, and the animals reacting to it.
In fact, in response to an early syndicate submission, an editor mentioned that a good number of the strips involved her being airborne, usually falling. Duly noted! Lol. :)
