[sigh…]

Alex: Are the other boys bothering you, Timothy?

Timothy: Oh! Father Anderson! No, I’m okay. I don’t mind them.

Alex: How goes the packing?

Timothy: Okay, I think.

Alex: Son, let me tell you a secret. On Father Maxwell’s first solo mission, he forgot to bring socks.

Regarding today’s strip, it’s nice to see the ol’ “Tell a slightly embarrassing and humanizing story of the hero figure from his youth” trick. Always a nice approach to calming down the new guy. Assuming Maxwell doesn’t find out about it. Given is pride issues I doubt he’d appreciate the humanizing.

Amen too that brother 😎

it’s a common trick thats used all the times. somethings things are said about there childhood hero that may not be true, but heck anything to calm down the rookie right?

a spooked/scared rookie is bad voodoo for any mission. :ick:

aww poor Timmy the others make fun of him. 😥 I also have a question…what’s up with socks? Is it a conicidence that socks have been mentioned twice in Shine? First Integra packs lots of socks for her trip in “Every Leaf In Springtime” and now we’re talking about Enrico forgetting all his? I’m probably the only one seeing this.

..SOCKS ARE IMPORTANT. They keep your feet warm.

It’d be funnier if Anderson said a towel >.>. A pint of ben and jerrys to the one who knows why

Because he’s a froody guy of course, and a man like that always knows where his towel is.

Oh, and if you don’t mind I really like mint ice cream 😀

I think “hoopy frood” was the actual term.

I wonder what Anderson’s towel would look like. My guess is something all white, with a blue cross on it. And it’s be blessed so he could kill vampires with it, maybe even specially soaked in Holy Water so it always carries a residue. He probably even uses it to polish his pie servers!

Uh… I knew that. I was just, um, testing you…

Mint it up *tosses Chaos a pint of mint ice cream*

I think the importance of having lots of socks when traveling has always been impressed upon me. I know that, when your feet get cold or wet, there are few things more helpful than getting warm socks on.

Also, I don’t have enough socks at college right now, so I keep having to do loads of laundry just for the sake of having clean socks again. I’m sure that’s making an impression ^_~

I always have more than enough socks at hand. But I can imagine what it’s like being stuck with the same pair for four days. Ick.

For keeping feet warm and dry, I generally trust my shoes. My current pair of shoes are a cross between boots and sneakers: all the comfort of sneakers but as tough as boots. Water proofing spray is also a must.
