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.

'What millennia am I at?'

It is hard to keep track of customs. Skip a couple centuries, and they change!

Bother that. Skip a couple of decades and they change. That's why we Aquariuses are so often at wits end. We don't know if we're fifty years ahead of the curve, or fifty years behind it. (And sometimes we're both at the same time!)

For that matter, customs just a couple thousand miles away are different than they are here... and sometimes customs a couple hundred miles away can differ significantly. We humans are a weird bunch. ^^;;

So, that "old-fashioned by several centuries" thing from the prior strip is heritable? :)

@Dad: Good heavens, yes.

@Robert: As a Minnesotan I stick out rather strongly in our nation's capitol. Then again, I stick out in Minnesota, too. :P

@Zach: Let's just say that Mary's typical reading material is rather sincerely non-current.
