I'm sorry - i have a problem with using a plural pronoun to refer to a single person...

I absolutely agree and understand that we need a gender-neutral pronoun, but using the wrong number jars my ear.

Children
My first wife didn't want children, and i was happy to oblige - knowing myself, i was afraid that i would hit.

At this point in time, we have two granddaughters (soon to be ten and twelve) via my stepdaughter - she was fourteen when i married her mother, and we have gotten on fairly well - living with us.

Despite strong temptation (especially in the case of the younger) i have never hit my granddaughters.

How can they do that to family?
It's easiest to do it to family.

Family are easy targets who often don't fight back.

It's raining!
Yay!
@Asuyuia: Heh heh. My work here is done.

TVT is even more of a time-sink than Wikipedia.

{For a comment on THAT: https://xkcd.com/214/. Be sure to mouse over the cartoon for the second punchline.}
"Quick, Robin - the TVTropes!"
Well, not QUITE.

I love the surreptitious glances around before the peek...

I'd drink a lot, too, if that was what i did for a living.
Sword-swallowers need to tip their head back further...
One wonders if Caroline will ever answer her phone again.
Hmmm. How does he plan to make his escape?

Foreboding dialog, next ten panels.
Ummm
I would think there would be ethical issues for Vincent acting - even informally - as a therapist to Kellen.
As one of my brother's characters says...
"I really don't like battle plans that include words like 'probably' or 'hopefully'."
"I just had a thought"
The only thing more scary to hear that i can think of would be "Hey Bubba! Hold my beer and watch this!"
Do i detect a certain air of "Light fuse get away quickly" in those last two panels?

"Let's toss out a bombshell to distract everybody" sort of thing?
@Corrin: Me not want be only one worrying alone.
Sadly, that old line about "The calm before..." comes to mind here.

Sorry to be a buzzkill.
Hair?
Rain, sweetie, your hair is fine. My {genetic} girlfriend had hair a LOT shorter than that when she was attending med school, and nobody ever seemed confused.

{Of course, the text on some of her undergarment labels involved the letter "D", so that may not be a fair comparison...}
@Yan Mouson: "Clocked" can also mean punched in the face...
Okay. Rain's meaner than me.

OUCH.
