    I’m lost. Who’s the older lady with the dark hair?

    Where did this come from? Mom and alligators? Did I miss this before?

    I don’t even understand the first panel. Gene will be home before dark? What, are you afraid of vampires?

    Meg is obviously a latchkey kid who’s home from school before Mom and Dad (Gene) get there. She has grown up quite a bit since we saw her last in the little pink tutu at Halloween. They do grow up fast…I blinked and my daugher grew up and gave me a granddaugher…talk about deja vu!

    Alligators are dangerous
    She was being sarcastic about doing dangerous things in the absence of adult supervision.
    SHE WAS JOKING.

    Also… more evidence of Mary Lou still being just a little bit too tightly wound.

    We now know that “The Dock” is located in a state with alligators.

    Is this like a TV soap opera where suddenly a character is played by a different actress who looks nothing like the previous one, and who is 5 years older?

    Since it’s a joke, Meg could put the alligators in any state she wants; or she could use piranhas.

    My theory is that since Jimmy Johnson has stated that he isn’t into portraying children, he grew Meg up really fast. Or maybe he’s trying to show the passage of several years?

    Forget the alligators, you need to be afraid of the….land muskies…

    Meg has always been drawn next to one of her parents. It is hard to perceive her height when she by herself. And this whole strip today is a little weird.

    Perfect answer. Baby alligators are cute and fun to watch.

    Though I would have gone with:

    Sure mom, I’m going to work on my science fair project. Where do we keep the U235 or Pu240? Oh, yeah, pick up a dozen KLYSTRON switches on the way home. Thanks!
