One of the difficulties that people who rely on their deductive and inductive abilities face is their tendency to make snap judgments and then voice them. If I could pay a penny to take back everything I’d said when I was convinced I was right, my bank account would be a lot slimmer, and I’d have a lot more friends.
Mind you, it’s not what Scot actually says, here, that is the problem, but that the implication of what he accuses Penny of having done is enormous. We’ll get into that, later.
I’d also like to point out that the three people who like Casual Notice (and aren’t related to me) cite this arc as the one that got them hooked.
This was just a one-shot to fill in before I started on the somewhat heavy thread that follows. I had Sonderegger’s permission in advance, this time.
And this marks the end of the flashback. That’s how Scot moved in with Penny. Magic!
This was a filler comic…sort of. The only gag I had was the “waking up with a face full of feet” bit in the final panel, and I couldn’t figure out how to fit it into the next comic. Both Ms. Campos and Scrubbo (Brandon Sonderegger) were great sports about me including their characters in the comic (I did try to get their permission before-hand). In panel 2, Steve wakes up with a kangaroo. Don’t ask how or why.
