If only it were so easy!
What's really going to bake your noodle later on is: would Pip still have done it if Kitteh hadn't said anything.
And Pip's completely dry -- has Kitteh been delivering a monologue?
also, nice detail work on the raindrops bouncing off the speech bubble.damp Kitteh is damp.
My favorite bit is that Kitteh has muddy legs, while Pip is dry and clean, which seems to imply that the area under the balloon is always dry, even as they walk along....
Pip's sunny smile dries out the mud."Let a smile be your umbrella."
