    Panel 3: I’ve never seen Ruthie with such an ugly expression before.

    Replying (again) to yesterday’s comment by Mr. Smith. I beg to differ. You misunderstand me . I was not “whining about how you were treated once when you were a child.” I was describing an event which changed the way I treat others. As a result, I now try to behave with kindness and respect to all people, not just children, avoiding put-downs and insults (which serve no useful purpose beyond giving the person making them a spurious sense of superiority)

    A couple of times in the past, I have had metal slivers penetrate my skin. Believe me, they hurt a LOT more than the wooden ones do!

    My hubby had a few of those when he worked.

    Splinters do hurt so does thorny painful stickers.

    @Arye Uygur

    I once had a hand full of splinters (I ran my hand along a wooden fence), so I know from personal experience that both panel two and thjree are appropriate when mom is pulling objects from the hand (plus a few more faces that are apt to be censored).

    If you’ve ever had someone dig in your hand with tweezers (or a needle, which is what our mother used), you’d be making ugly faces, too.

    Meanwhile, today on Creator’s .com, Ruthie is trying to feed ninja kitty, but discovers that her act of kindness is intercepted by a different critter altogether.

    Thanks Susan. Your comment was better than the strip.

    Metal pieces are bad enough, but fiberglass pieces can’t even be found…….

    Any foreign object that gets stuck in the skin is painful (more so if it has any chemicals which are also irritating) and the removal (or attempt) is another irritation. Moms have to do their best with all the adversities and such that children get themselves into.

    Once, had one in my eye.
    I knew for sure, from the rusty spot, I saw with the other eye.
    From a grinder at a nuke site.
