It’s always good to be clear what it is that one is ordering from the menu. As Sheila said to Theo a few strips back, there wasn’t anything extra ordered for those coffees. It should all be fair and above-board, right? (That’s called “building up dramatic tension”…)

This strip was underwritten by Rhys, who has been a long-time supporter of this comic and has provided the full costs of several strips in the series. We here in the Natural Habitat are particularly grateful to him.
