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.
I am very proud of that last panel, the twist, the punchline, I think it’s really well balanced.
That and I love the idea of a twenty foot high cake. I’m sure that would last me several days if I had one.
