Redid this comic about three times.
Ellie went through many typical forms of lying. Tried to use her date’s logic against him (pessimism.) Tried to insert his own wording (“Full disclosure.”) Half-truthed. Tried to play it off. Justified it.
I try to make most of the conflicts in the comic situational versus ‘contrived.’ In this case, Ellie put herself in a bad situation she honestly had no way out of if a date ended up actually working. So she’s learning to develop her most important quality yet. It’s one word. Starts with an ‘I.’
