    ’It’s like … I don’t think … I just do what everybody else does.’

    Dakota : “I just do what the little voices in my head tell me to do”

    A “blaaart” is heard from behind her head.

    Sorry Phoebe, the world does not revolve around you.. It is in orbit around your unicorn.

    It looks like Phoebe is packing more in the caboose than Dakota.

    There are times that I wish I could stop thinking, and just live.
    Meanness aside, Dakota may be onto something… : /

    That’s what happens when you ride your unicorn to school every day.

    Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?

    I think Dakota is jealous. She needs a unicorn too.

    Dakota is so careless!

    Don’t think that for a minute. The only things people like Dakota will ever know are contained in her mirror — a teensy, tiny little universe.

    I’m absolutely with Phoebe in the last panel — simply dumbfounded at what people DON’T think about.

    Sorry, one more thing. Google had this “get rid of bossy” thing to encourage leadership for girls. Bossy and leading are not the same thing. Phoebe is a fabulous example here of not being cowed by others. She takes a snarky little girl to task for being consistently rude to her and is actually able to have a conversation with her. Brava, Phoebe. And thank you, Dana!

    To dwell on the misery you inflict on others is to gain the first taste of empathy. A bitter herb of conscious understanding leading to remorse and perspective.

    What kid wants that?!

    To be fair, it’s absolutely natural to not like (perhaps even hate) other people without being able to articulate why—some of that is instinct. But not examining that dislike is foolish… childish, even. And absolutely natural for little kids =/

    DAK is top of the social heap. Angst is for the bottom level. It’s an obsessive digging for how everything effects yourself, and a more selfish position than the ‘I don’t care’ from the top.
    Sorry to see PHE’s eyes are bugging out like a bottom dweller today. A top would have said ‘Stop being Mean!’ And if they got an ‘I don’t care.’’ response one grade school fist would have been planted right onto the upturned nose.
