    I guess I don’t understand Alix’s statement in the last panel. I’m not too sure what Evie said to her even registered… ;)

    Geez, Alix, watch your tongue!

    ORMouseworks, elephantitis is a disease that causes parts of a person’s body to swell to gigantic proportions (it’s horrible really) which Alix apparently is under the impression comes from actual elephants.

    Alix hasn’t registered…or she is subconsciously avoiding registering the import of Evie’s words!

    The first panel is so sweet. And Holly is already suspicious in the first panel. And in the second panel she’s rolling her eyes at Alix only to be taken aback by Gramma’s announcement. xD

    Hey, I don’t comment on strips much but I just wanted to say hi Jan! I’ve really been enjoying the strip. :)

    To those picking on Alix, back off. She’s a kid. At that age, she heard her grandma. She may not completely understood what she said, but she did hear her.

    actually, she’s thinking of elephantiasis, elephantitis would be inflammation of your elephant.

    If you’ve been on a jet for hours and not moved around enough your ankles swell and look like elephantitis

    I’m thinking Alix is of the age where it doesn’t matter if Gramma is married or not, she’s still the same person. And she’s HOME! Now a gramma with elephantiasis would be something to get excited about…

    Well looks like Holly got the message though.

    Swelling and water retention in the ankles could mean a number of things. None of them good.
