#149 That’s The Way I’m Going


Lance may have the distinction of having penned the single geekiest Venus and Adonis parody line ever. (I know, it’s hotly contested.)

LANCE: Should I skip to the sexy part?
JERIA: No, that’s–
LANCE: “From the sweetest, shapely, kissing-friendly mouth / To the greater pleasures for which you trek due south…” There’s a part about you somewhere, too.
JERIA: Lance, this is all very sweet, and points for using the word “stab’st,” but… There’s a reason people don’t usually date their babysitters. It’s a logistical nightmare, for one thing. Plus, I’m your landlord… It’s just so complicated.
Lance hangs his head.
JERIA: …What I’m saying, sweetie, is we’d to have to be reeeally careful.
They smile at each other.
JERIA: How old are you again?
LANCE: 19.
JERIA: Ha ha ha see you in five or ten years, sport.

    I looooove how Jeria asks how old Lance is, then laughs at his age! I dunno why, but it just cracked me up. How old is she anyways?
    Well, whatever, this is still the best comic series I’ve ever read.

    Ha! Thanks.

    I’m actually little fuzzy on Jeria’s age (that’s usually the kind of information I know, too), but I think she’s about 27.
