In Marie's world, burglars are polite, and knock before they rob you.
I really like the word "burglar," I'm not sure why, but it just tickles me so. Upon working on this page, I kept hearing it sounded out like John C Reilly's line in Chicago, "She had him covered in a sheet and she's tellin' me some cock and bull story about this burglar," and he pronounces it BUR-ga-LUR because he's just that angry!!
This page didn't take me very long to do, because Marie and Eddie are particularly simple and fun for me to draw. Hopefully this bodes well for the next few strips OOOOOOOOOOOOPE I JUST JINXED IT DIDN'T I
I love how this story keeps switching from being touching to making me laugh out loud and back! Oh Marie, how many burglars do you know that knock and why opening a door for them AND offering them a weapon to stab you with is a good idea? XD
@Oly-RRR: Aaah I'm so happy to hear that! :D :D
Lmao, maybe Marie's been burned by those "Gas company" guys who try to worm their way in... nah, we all know she's just being silly as usual. Your last part of that sentence made me laugh- HERE, TAKE IT, USE THIS ALREADY, NO ONE EVEN CAME TO MY PARTY
@mitchellbravo: THIS IS MY PARTY AND I'LL GET STABBED IF I WANT TO
This is what my mum usually says when I mention it could be good to carry some sort of weapon sometimes - "yeah, so whoever you're trying to defend yourself from can take it and use it on you?"
@Oly-RRR: LOL. Saddest self-defense attempt ever!!!!
