    It’s a surprise to see Brad panic at the sight of a minor wound; he was a paramedic before becoming a fire fighter. Wouldn’t it be funny if it was Luann who bandages the wound?

    It’s not the blood, it’s what is Toni going to say when I bring Shannon home with a bandaid when I was supposed to be watching her.

    The Brat already broke something, made a mess and threw trash over Bwad and Luann yet he doesn’t think that, at the very least, he might need to supervise her?

    Bwad might want to start by looking after a goldfish first before he starts thinking of kids of his own (hell at this point maybe a pet rock might be more his speed)

    The Brats injury is all on Bwad, hopefully it isn’t serious

    (Be interesting though if Jonah uses this to inflict guilt on Toni though)

    Oh, please. Really? A tiny cut on her finger is going to send a trained EMT into a panic? I don’t think so. This is pretty much the stupidist thing I’ve seen on this strip yet, and I’ve seen some doozies.

    Stupid scissors, you were supposed to cut her throat, not her finger. Now if this were the Venture Bros, running with scissors would be a fatal action. But they were death-prone kids. Shannon seems to have a charmed life in that regard.

    Well, I had high hopes for this arc.

    It’s Friday now. Only one day to go. Unless G&K want to milk this for next week.

    And given their track record, they just might!

    Earlier this week, many of you were under the impression that this was going to be a pregnancy announcement for Toni.

    If Brad’s performance this week is to be considered “canon,” then I would dearly hope that is not the direction we’re going.

    Oh, how funny it would be!

    Toni: Pregnant when I’m not ready for it!

    Brad: I’m ready to be a – whoops! What was that?

    And Shannon, the kid that never goes home…

    Some big, rugged guys just freeze in the face of an unexpected accident. Others don’t. A fireman shouldn’t. Whatever. But, if Shannon doesn’t leave after Saturday, my expression will be just like Brad’s in the last panel.

    To all those saying that Brad shouldn’t be Freaking out at the sight of Shannon’s cut because he’s an EMT…

    It’s different when it’s your own family.

    Ask my mother. Well… it’s a little late for that, but she could have told you, back in the day.

    She was a nurse, and not just any nurse… she was a surgical nurse, and she loved it.

    When I was in junior high, I asked her to pierce my ears for me. That involved numbing the earlobes with ice, and piercing them with a sterilized needle.

    She swore that she nearly fainted as she performed that simple procedure on _ her own daughter’s_ ears.

    Unfortunately those piercings never healed properly, mainly, I suspect, because I was too young and impatient at the time. I eventually let them close and had them re-pierced – professionally – when I was in college.

    What a wuss. Like Luann, he has regressed to duller version of his early-teen self.

    My toddler grandson tripped and fell while my wife and I were watching him. He got a pretty big cut on his forehead – real bleeding. We didn’t freak out; we stopped it up with what we had available, distracted him from his hurt, and in a few minutes he was all OK.

    In defense of Brad here. the joke of the day (and there has to be a daily joke) is that after smugly swearing that he’s ready to become a parent he freaks out over a common parent-thing, your kid getting injured. The joke is, and if I have to explain it that it wasn;t much of a jole) is that Brad is nowheres ready for parenthood.

    It comes with the territory, Bwad. I carried a first aid kit in my purse for years when I was raising kids. There were 4 of them, and SOMEONE was always bleeding. And don’t even get me started on emergency room visits. One of my daughters broke both arms in a scooter accident when she was 13. She thought it would be cool to close her eyes while riding downhill on a curved street.

    Well, ALMOST whatever. It’s so sweet how Brad, a well-trained firefighter who has saved people during dangerous situations, is screaming at Shannon’s little cut on her finger. He loves her so much ♡. I wonder if Shannon will be treated by Luann, the well-trained kindergarten teacher, because Brad will be panicking.Toni is totally righ.

    If a child at 6 or 7 can’t pronounce an “R” and makes it a “W” then they have a speech impediment. In schools they are quickly identified for speech classes. I speculate the writers of this comic don’t know this fact. Ergo, Shannon is “special” and the writers are denying a character treatment by trained professionals. That’s sort of ignorant or cruel on the writer’s part, don’t you think?

    When my youngest was about 2 months old, I was changing his diaper on the footstool of the rocker. I turned to grab the new diaper and he rolled off. He only fell like 12 inches, onto carpet, but I freaked out. I put in a call to the doctors, but they had to call back. While I waited, I called my mom, and said “I think I broke the baby!” She asked if he cried right away, are his pupils the same, if everything looks like it is where it should be… All OK. Then the doctor called back and asked the same exact questions. I was like “MY MOTHER ALREADY TOLD ME ALL THAT!” By the fourth one, if the bone isn’t sticking out of the skin, you don’t even raise an eyebrow. Like that TV ad for the cat food- “I’m bleeding!” “Grab two bandages!”

Anyway Toni will be the calmer one when they do have a child, and I think this all clearly leading up to that. But parents will rise to the task. Whine about that.
