Nurse Dawkins Has Set Me Free!

WHAT IS GOING ON.

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.

Wait, what? Don't these two women live in the same apartment? Why should they be surprised to see each other. Also, nurses have regular shifts. They are not indentured servants that have to be set free...except, we aren't dealing with anything like a rational universe, here, are we? Never mind.

And don't forget Tommie's endless conversations with Carol Collins! What a delicious snark-fest that was! How I long for it now!

The important thing about today's strip is that Lu Ann's hair is pretty much the same in each frame... and that Tommy's is almost the same. We won't mention faces...
