Joys: Yesterday I had an on-and-off headache that made it feel like that day lasted for a week. I woke up earlier today and to my delight it was gone. It's easier to have a good day when your head doesn't start pounding each time you stand up from your seat.

Re: 2020/02/24 - Night In The Woods

My money was on King running into other characters he'd try to rope into helping him with his predicament, but running & hiding from Sasha's Sasha-ness is excellent too. Feels like we're a few strips away from the conclusion of this arc, and I'm curious as to what it's going to end on.

I empathize with King here; Sasha is going to cross a lot of lines by her very nature and Bailey definitely knows that, so King wants to know the adamant line that Bailey never wants crossed rather than only having vague boundaries. But all this is giving me the vibe I feel like this may be all a se...
