It’s been a long time since I last wrote in full sentences. Even sure I remember how, I am not.
Of course, occasionally there are incidents that are nigh impossible to fit into the usual three-panel format, so perhaps a compromise is called for? Perhaps not, but I have nonetheless decided to bow to the mounting pressure+ and make an exception++
A play in three acts by K.N. Pepper
Scene: A doorway
SHE (casually) So – would you like to come in for some tea?
HE: Uh – sure. Why not?
Scene: A lounge. HE and SHE are sitting on a couch, each holding a cup
SHE: How is your tea?
HE: It’s good.
Scene: A bedroom
SHE (vaguely incredulous): So how exactly did we end up here, naked?
HE: It was really good tea. Again?
Needless to say, I am not a gentleman+++. Hur hur hur.
+ Happy now? You all know who you are!
++ Although to be honest, it isn’t exactly a massive departure from the cartoon, is it?
+++ Especially since this may be a work of fiction
