In that last panel, I was going for that whole slightly embarrassed yet happy feeling you get when you see one of your old elementary school teachers as an adult. I don’t care how hardened you are, if you run into your old kindergarten teacher, you instantly turn into a 5-year old again.
Next week is Christmas and I will be taking that week off, partly for the holiday itself and partly to get some more strips drawn so that I don’t fall behind like I recently did. New strips will resume on January 8th. Happy Holidays, everyone!
