Okay, okay, I'm over my sour-puss reaction from yesterday. Fortunately, you, dear readers, picked up my slack with your hilarious comments. I'm not sure why I was so disappointed. This morning's strip made me laugh again. First, it foreshadows Mary's penchant for marrying into wealth, as her mother obviously did.
Second, "something shifted inside?" That's just plain beautiful, man. It explains why Mary appeared to be in such pain during grace.
What a wonderful story this has been!
