|Thus begins week 2 of the Great WoB Extravaganza. Please simply
grin and bear any scheduling snafus; I'm in Dealing With Emergency
Mode, which can be a bit chaotic at times.|
Also, please note that this week's strips are dedicated to Mimi, who was quite unhappy last fall when the outcome of the annual Timmy's strip remained unrevealed.

|Panel 1: Marie and Basil are having coffee in a cafe.|
Marie: So you went to Timmy's, and Casey approached you?
Basil: No. He was already there.
Panel 2: As Basil speaks, we see the scene play out. A beardless Basil enters Tim Hortons, walking past the register and the display of doughnuts.
Caption: "I went just for the hell of it, you know? I mean...my medication's never really worked. Nothing's ever really worked. I didn't even care what happened."
Panel 3: Basil looks down at Casey, who is sitting at one of the tables. Casey is long-haired, in rags, and apparently arguing with himself.
Caption: "But there he was."
Casey: It's...it's not blue enough. Why has all the blue gone away? I don't understand.
Panel 4: Back in the present.
Basil: He was so much worse off than I was that I actually felt quite balanced.
Marie: Understandably so.
Alt-Text: Relative sanity is not to be sneezed at.
