[Hello, people who are looking for the Thursday, December 8 strip! I’m doing battle with food poisoning right now, so I didn’t get one done this time. I’m sure I’ll be in fighting form in time for Monday’s usual strip. Sorry!]


Watching Momo stumble her way into greatness as she struggles with language has been a treat, you guys. The first time she really surprised me was when she was trying to get across that she was tired, before she was really verbal at all; she touched her head lightly and said “ouch.”

Nowadays she has a pretty good grasp of most simple words, in context, but every so often she reminds me that she’s really only been doing this for a year. She’s bound to not know some words, even if they seem simple, and sometimes the results betray her true gremlin self.
