Where did Tess have a similar experience before?
Reminder: the date of the comic is September 21, 2021. Phil is very, very old, so it's not strictly a 2022 thing for him to think about the Russians coming to conquer everything.
Sometimes characters surprise me by acting like me. I was quite anxious about losing and mislaying stuff as a kid, and still am.
Another reminder: the comic will be on an irregular schedule for a while as I'm in no mental shape to commit to a regular schedule of any kind. I draw when drawing makes me feel good and don't when it doesn't.

Temperatures in the Netherlands in the fall after sunset tend to force people into clothes unless they're very active.
