WHAT IS GOING ON! Is this really Margo, or am I reading some OOC fanfic?? Is she talking to the same woman in these two strips? Where are all the people? Did Margo somehow wander into New Jersey? Wasn't Margo just at Diner with Thelma? Why didn't she eat there? Nevermind Diner, THERE ARE LITERALLY TENS OF THOUSANDS OF WAYS TO BUY FOOD IN NEW YORK, why would you ask a stranger for food, and then offer to pay them??
I can't even. Until things start making sense again, I'm just going to write secret messages for the panels. As always, hover over the strips above to read my secret thoughts.
It's like Tommie and Lu Ann's outfits are sucking them into a carnation turtleneck singularity.
This strip is making it very difficult for me to stick to my resolution to be less harsh on Frank and more harsh on the writing. I mean the writing is pretty terrible, but Tommie's hand looks like a sea lion's flipper and Eric has rapidly deflated between the first and second panels.
Must criticize the writing...focus...OK, we've got it...Margo's acting really bizarre. Can someone please do something about it so we can move on to whatever fresh hell awaits us in the next storyline?
Things not to worry about besides Margo's disappearance.
1) That burglar stole all the squiggle art and kelly green décor.
2) That everyone believes Margo is overworked even though she has no clients, fired all her coworkers and hasn't been to the office in months.
3) Tommie growing her hair out to an awkward length. Keeping the bangs was a mistake.
4) That Tommie and Lu Ann are wearing bizarro outfits and rotating around each other in a white walled room.
Are Tommie and Lu Ann talking about "celebrating" how Tommie was "set free" from work earlier than usual, using the most unnatural and overblown language possible?
OR, has Nurse Dawkins set Tommie free from her already-tenuous grip on reality, baptizing her into the Cult of White and Carnation Pink? Is Tommie entering a new era of her life, where she can leave her important (and salaried) work in the medical professional to spends months on end in a cabin up in the woods, meditating and taking care of animals WAIT, NO, EFF, THAT ALREADY HAPPENED.
