Look on the bright side, Carol. You may have lost everyone you've ever loved, but your hair is full of volume in the first panel. Or it's just slowly stealing it from Tommie.
In the alternate universe of my mind, the logical next panel would be Tommie and Carol drinking margaritas while lip-syncing into their hairbrushes a super cheesy girl power anthem about living, loving, surviving and thriving. "I Will Survive" has been done, I'd take it back to 1999 with "Believe" by Cher. You're welcome for that little earworm.
