This is one of those pages where I swear one of the characters have already said this dialog, because I’ve said it so often in my real life. Someone else may have said it too, this is kind of a theme, so it would make sense. Thomas may even have said these exact words to Carol before, but I felt like even if he had the point would bear repeating. Also people do tend to repeat themselves. I know I tell the same 6 or 7 stories every time I meet new people, so the ones who already know me are like “It was only 4 trolls whe he told that one to me…” Anyway, in either case she leads him off on a different tangent, which is what would really happen anyway. I also liked the idea of him making goof hand gestures at her as he made the analogy.
