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.
