Some of you may have noticed that Betty’s appeared in the last two Skwaz and Chupamono strips. There’s a reason for that. SHE ASKED TO BE IN THEM.
She’s three months past three now, and has hit some groove where she speaks English like I speak French.
“The paper, where you’re drawing? Maybe I could be on it?”
“Daddy, you go outside the door and stay outside. Mommy, you just sleep.”
She also has started “playing” Sam from Green Eggs and Ham.
Betty: Hello, man!
Betty: Would you…would you eat the ham?
Me: I do not like green eggs and ham! I do not like them, Sam I Am!
Betty: Would you like them into the boat?
She is also very earnest when communicating these things.
I have a feeling that if monkeys could talk, they would talk either just like this or in a very similar manner.
