Uh-oh. Things do not look good in the Taylor household. Dr. Taylor has downgraded his prognosis from "Easy-Peasey" to just "Okay."
Today's Full Strip
This storyline has turned into a Stephen King novel. Careful, Evy. Olive's latent telekinesis is ready to morph into an uncontrolled firestorm.Now, that would be fun to see. Imagine Olive's Angel/Avenger unleashed upon all of Charterstone and the hospital. It would be like Carrie and Jurassic Park combined!
I hesitate to offer parenting advice as I know how difficult it can be to raise kids and every situation is unique. I will make an exception here though and state that if your very young child is upset, has a medical condition, and you already know that she is anxious to begin with, then shaking her and yelling at her is not the best strategy for helping her work through this. Just saying...
Ed has an idea: conk Olive over the head with that vase. Maybe she won't come to until the cystectomy is over!
Evy likes children the way she prefers her martinis; with an olive, shaken, not stirred.
Off-topic: Is that a picture of Lassie on the dresser in Panel One?
Continuing off-topic: And is that a horrific CLOWN portrait above the vase? Toby sold a painting!
That does look like a especially creepy clown picture, but not as creepy as Ed's smirk and Evy's fury. These two are probably the most despicable characters seen in the Worthiverse in a long time-- we never really got the Central Park Mugger's backstory. And Aldo was more pathetic than evil. If he deserved death, whither Ed and Evy?
Maybe Ed and Evy will fall in the pool. Olive, the only witness, won't rescue them because the angel told her not to. We can only hope.
SundayWith parents like Evy and Ed, how did Olive survive to the age of 8? Picture toddler Olive wandering the streets.I wondered if Olive is pleading with Mary or the angel, then thought "Why not both?" Look for Angel Mary garbed in John Dill pink frou-frou.
@KitKat, we can hope she's summoning a higher power, like the angel or Mary Worth--but who's right there listening is Evil Teddy Bear.
Ed's comment about not having anything to worry about is terrifying. He's in cahoots with Kapuht!
If that teddy bear starts talking, I'm out.
correction to secret message: Olive is the daughter, Evy is the mother
