    It could have been worse. I was afraid he was sleeping on the caterpillar!

    Just wait about 20 years or so John! You won’t NEED “fuzzy caterpillars” for eyebrows! (stupid hormones!)

    My daughter could have been the screamer. 8 yrs old and still screams at the dentist.

    I have a sister that is 61 and still will not get a shot of anykind and will throw a screaming fit if they even try to give her a shot. She is looking for a dentist that will put her under to do some dental work. Funny thing, she will take a IV but not a shot.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Sometimes my readers made some very astute but troublesome observations. When this strip appeared, a woman from Maryland wrote to say that the punch line didn’t work because Elizabeth was not actually looking at the caterpillar. I explained that I needed to draw her face and also her dad’s face, so I’d taken a bit of artistic license. Had I positioned her the way she should have been, the audience would just see the back of her head.

    There are actually some poisonous caterpillars in real life.

    This is hilarious! Especially since John gets to be the butt of the joke for a change!

    @Jean I had bad teeth due to a medication side effect from when I was an infant, spent a lot of time in the dentist chair before I finally had my teeth pulled

    Hated Novocaine and was lucky enough to have a dentist who was willing to work with me by turning the gas up to near maximum safety levels


    Not that I didn’t feel the pain, just didn’t care

    Could have been worse … it could have been a fuzzy mustache

    “Had I positioned her the way she should have been, the audience would just see the back of her head.”
    That must have been one picky reader. To me, Elizabeth seems to be looking at John. She could have glanced up at the caterpillar, then looked down to make eye contact with John.
