For those who have asked or have considered asking about the flooding currently occurring in West Virginia: Our family is safe. Our house is up on a mountain and far enough from the flood plains to not be directly affected. However, there are many people in our area who are affected. If you wish to help those in need, please contact the WV division of the American Red Cross or the WV VOAD, or check out this Huffington Post article for additional links.

[Comic for Friday, September 18, 2009]


[[Todd continues his narration. We see "Misty" (Mischief) as a waitress, happily toting a tray full of glasses and plates as a "greasy spoof" cook with a cigarette and tattoo watches from the background.]]
Todd: [off-panel, narrating] Our best hope was to lay low, at least until Mischief's memories returned. To my surprise, she easily acquired a job at the diner, probably to recoup our initial bill.

[[We see Todd in a garage, standing in front of an open car hood and wiping his hands on a shop rag as his manager, a balding black man, watches from the background.]]
Todd: [narrating] I was hired as a mechanic at a nearby garage. All that time in the resistance fixing things paid off. Neither of us made much, but combined we could be comfortable.

[[We see Todd and "Misty" at the front desk of an apartment building. Todd is signing a paper on the desk, as a smoking and skeptical-looking manager looks on.]]
Todd: [narrating] We rented a cheap apartment and told the landlady we're siblings. She didn't buy it, of course, and took great pleasure in reminding us of that fact.

[[We see Todd and "Misty" cleaning their apartment, smiling at each other. Todd sweeps/mops, while "Misty" is dusting.]]
Todd: [narrating] We actually began to settle into a "normal" routine, perhaps for the first time in either of our lives. But neither of us could ever be normal, and I knew this was only the calm before the impending storm.
