|Friday on Monday. Falling a bit more behind again, this time because I'm babysitting. I may or may not finish Saturday's comic in time for Tuesday. Also, I'll be spending Tuesday on a plane, so I could fall even further behind. Fun!|

|Panel 1: Marie and Evil Marie are sitting on Marie's futon.|
Evil Marie: Beth hid in the closet to escape her parents' fighting. Eventually, she fell asleep, but the fighting went on.
Evil Marie: It got to the point where they stopped abusing each other and started abusing Beth. I mean, this was going way beyond anything the kid deserved. It...hurt even me.
Evil Marie: I was watching. People don't see me unless I want them to. And...I don't know what it was about this one kid. There'd been so many kids, many of them a lot worse off. Maybe it was just the last straw.
Marie: I don't want to know the next bit, do I?
Evil Marie: Depends. Do you enjoy desperate crying?
Alt-Text: SADNESS IS COMING (like winter, only more so).
