Didn’t keep them tied after all 😀
That said, a situation in which Modest’s hair would be absent while Modest is present would be pretty grim.
That is true.
Naw, she would just be getting a haircut. And how do we know if she’s not got some Hydra in her, eh? Each hair she snips, two more take their place? She could have a snake afro!
Or a snafro
I remember Modest and Modest’s Hair taking tests separately, seems they also have different spots in roll call, makes me wonder if they get separate report cards.
I think they must have.
What happens if Modest’s hair gets detention? Or has to attend summer school?
That’s discrimination, each one should be asked separately, not as group.
If Modest used an elastic ponytail, someone just got hit in the head with it. If not, she’s going to need another ponytail.
Are Hissstory and Lunch are their favorite subjects?
I think this is like my favorite thing about this comic. There’s just magical creatures from a magic parallel reality that show up outta nowhere one day and everybody just kinda rolls with it. Life is just now life-as-normal plus some people are fey folk.
They have superheroes in their world remember? I think they all know that they live in a scifi fantasy kitchen sink but it’s so rare like death or natural disasters that people often don’t have to deal with it personally, so beings from the magical land of Yeld is just one of the many paranormal instances that just so happen to be part of their own world.
This is true. modest is very unusual, but Portland also had a giant robot and ghost shark attack within the last year or so.
Love that Booth does roll call for the snakes. Very wholesome to acknowledge them as their own entity
They act out if they think they are being ignored. Nobody wants to be ignored while everyone else gets attention.
Fair enough. Though I was the quiet kid that didn’t want to be bothered most of my school career. So it didn’t cross my brain immediately lol
Should be call roll, not role, I think it’s a typo ?
Is she untying her hair in panel 3?
I suspect that Ms. Booth was deliberately chosen for this class because she is used to dealing with Modest and her hair.
That is exactly right.
Does she get a pay raise for having the skills to handle a non human student appropriately? And an elementary student of a non human race that has yet (to my knowledge) start going through puberty? If not she should. Teachers don’t get paid enough to deal with their own race.
She should, but i doubt she does. Modest isn’t officially a student. She’s at school as a favor to Jake. I guess she’s an undocumented immigrant.
I thought maybe Ms. Booth was going to be her daughter’s teacher all through elementary school. So she would advance in grades with her daughter.
