Sometimes when sneezing, it has that paralyzing tensing of all the muscles feel to it. When writing this week of strips, I suddenly pictured how awful it would be to sneeze while stuck in ice — not only the cold, but the absolute inability to move any part of your body while this tense release happens. The thought was thoroughly unpleasant and made me laugh.
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. :)
