Note from 2020 [I can't remember if I've written such notes in the past, but from now on, when/if I do, I'll try to remember to leave them in white text instead of making them red to differentiate them from comments I made back in the day]: The ableism is strong in this comic. I am disabled myself, but 2008 was a different time. If I wrote this comic today, I would change the last two panels a lot. However, the comic is what it is. Some of the old strips make me cringe, but I did publish them, and I'm not going to erase history just because I understand the world differently now.

Panel 1: Casey, Marie, and Rahim sit on a couch. Casey's head is buried in his arms. Marie has a hand on his back.

This is happening too often. I need to stop being so sensitive about my foot.

Panel 2: Casey raises his head.

Marie: It seems to be the only thing that makes you really mad.

Casey: I know.

Panel 3: Casey looks down.

Casey: I guess I don't like people to think of me as handicapped.

Marie: None of your friends do.

Panel 4:

Rahim: Instead, we regard you as annoyingly perfect and complain about you behind your back.

Marie: Just about every day, too.

Alt-Text: Sometimes, we hold dinner parties during which we sit around and collectively curse your existence.
