    Yeah, and she still doesn’t know.
    .
    But, I didn’t know Joy was a quick change artist either.

    @finale

    Or Burl either. And converted a hardwired phone to a “go” phone too. And painted the wall.

    Wrong Side."


    We stepped through the looking glass into panel two.

    So many things make no sense….

    Not only do their clothes transform, and does the phone turn cordless, but..

    Why would Patty call her parents for any sort of information?

    And why does his looking at the phone make Burl a genius in Joy’s eyes….


    I hate to say it, but, maybe cos I’m so tired, I don’t actually understand the joke in that…

    Joy tells Patty a number expressed as letters; Burl looks at the phone (Redial? Speed dial?) and corrects it.
    Is that funny in itself?


    Neither gives a prefix, and xyz is 999, so the number showing on the phone would be 800-999123.


    Huh?


    Penny wise and # foolish?
    Nah.. not a single wise Penny in the family tree.

    (And for all of you non-Americans to whom that made no sense…….
    on a phone button in the US, # is read “Pound”.


    “# 1” is read “number one,” and in technology # is “hash” … but a voicemail recording will say “enter your password and press pound.” )

    They have TWO land lines?
    The lamp changes also, its like spot the difference?
    Someday our clothes will have computer chips and can be programmed to change patterns at will.

    Think what it is…. if you take the lamp on panel 1 as the vertical axis and spin the camera around 180 degrees…. you see panel 2…. but even with that the end table changes shape…. the cord goes missing and the blouse….. ? ! ?

    Need a cup of coffee here…………

    …too bad they won’t take that shirt’s advice.

    So I guess both phones should be corded to show they are on the same line and Patty is calling FROM that number so Burl can see it on the extension that HAS caller ID (some older extensions may not have it). It is still all a little surreal, I agree.

    @Rad-ish

    I had 2 land lines to my house back when I had 4 teens in the house (one just for me). I think there are already a few garments made with chips in them for changes, not very practical, tho’. I still have no use for cell phones and prefer Skype when home, but plan to buy disposable cell to use on next trip.

    Both phone numbers are one digit too short, also. So you would dial that number and wait a VERY long time for “the next operator”.

    Maybe Patty is having a bad dream, Burl’s shirt seems to change stripes too. And Joy’s earrings are different. Yep thats it: Patty is having a bad dream, asking her Parents for information, sheesh,
    She shouldn’t have had that cold piece of pizza before bed.

    Julie must’ve been distracted while she was drawing this. I agree, it doesn’t make sense.

    @2old, getting younger!

    I am coming around to your view….. It’s Patty’s bad dream…. NOW…. I can move on…… ! ! !
