Chapter 7, Page 16 Not 1500

Mary worries too much.

One wonders what would happen if there was nothing to worry about. Mary would probably find something.

So glad we don't rules like that any more.

Chapter 7, Page 15 Old maid at 14

A little older than old fashioned.

Dad's not exactly what one usually thinks of when someone says 'old fashioned.' And yet, he is. He's just a lot older fashioned than most. Think 200 BC, Northern Europe. Only without the warpaint and human sacrifice.

He also takes his duty to embarrass his children to within an inch of their lives very seriously.

I had a hard time coming up with the visuals for this strip. Mary freaking out all over the panels wouldn't leave much room for the words. So then I thought I'd draw something very sedate and domestic to counter balance the strange conversation going on in the next room. Which also gave me my punch line. Man, I love the creative process. (When it works.)

Chapter 7, Page 14 Propogation

Making Dad an ancestor?

He still does this from time to time. >.>

It's probably an indication of how secure he felt in my chastity that he could joke like this.

Chapter 7, page 13 Big bad dream

I don't want to be big!

I kinda wish I had managed to get this done on Friday so I could have had the thirteenth page on Friday the thirteenth. It's even better given that Mary's having a nightmare in this episode.

Ever hear that you forget your dreams soon after waking? Doesn't happen with me. There are some memories I have where I can't tell if it was a dream I had or really happened. I frequently wake up having trouble distinguishing what was dream and what was reality. That feeling can last most of the morning.

Chapter 7, Page 12 Hair today...

Mary's hair feels...not frizzy!

I resisted the urge to complete that terribly bad old pun in the title.

And, yes, I really did think it was weird when my scalp started to produce lubricant. My hair no longer felt dry and frizzy! There's something wrong!

Chapter 7, Page 11 The things boys do.

Do all boys act this way?

Run into wall, fall on little diapered butt, giggle, run across room and repeat.

It seems to keep him entertained, but for heaven's sake, HOW?!

Chapter 7, Page 10 Call him Samson.

It's discipline.

He really did this. No, really. Fell right no his little diapered butt from the sudden shift in his center of gravity, but he did pull the gate out of the door.

Strong kid.

Chapter 7, Page 9 Walking

First walking, then climbing.

Babies. Lots of fun. With the way Mary reacts to trouble it's amazing she hasn't had a heart attack already. Oh dear.

Chapter 7, Page 8 Sweat

Why do I sweat in winter?

Okay, so it's not particularly funny. I was kinda reaching this time around. It's been an interesting couple of weeks.

So sorry I missed the last couple of updates. T.T I'll try to do better.
