Notes:I'm not sure anything could really sum up what I'm feeling better in panel seven, especially
seeing as doing an entire comic on it hasn't quite encapsulated it all.
The problem remains, though, that I do like Santa Carlos and I do want him to remain in the main strip. And there's benefit to having him where he is in the form of having a few ideas of what to do with him that seem pretty amusing. And conversely if I toss him out of the strip he completely disappears.
And this is really one of those things I would have liked to fudge over maybe, if I didn't know that other wandering in characters would wonder. And, if I didn't actively have someone here reminding me of it. Which is good, since it keeps me from being lazy, if you don't decide to call this strip that.
