[Comic for Friday, February 24, 2017]

Transcription

[[As Nick, Fooker, and Trish listen intently (and continue to smolder from the fire-wombat attack), the blond female volunteer spreads her hands and smiles apologetically.]]
Woman: No, I think you've misunderstood me. I'm a bit scared, yes, but I'm not ready to give up just yet.

[[We close in on the woman as she continues, her expression turning contemplative and sad.]]
Woman: It took me a while to come to terms with what you did to "save" the Earth from the aliens. I'm still not happy about it, but at least I know now you had the best of intentions.

[[She grows more determined. Two other male volunteers listen carefully as they stand beside her.]]
Woman: So I'm concentrating on everyone on Earth who's counting on us--on ME--to find them: my parents, my brother, my niece... and seven billion others I may never meet.

[[She smiles as her eyes narrow, accepting the challenge ahead of her.]]
Woman: So no T-rex or ice-wombat is going to stop me. I volunteer for the next team.
[[Bolstered by the unexpected vote of confidence, Nick smiles meekly. Beside him, Fooker raises a finger of interjection.]]
Fooker: Just so we're all clear, it's FIRE-wombats and ICE-koalas.

For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. They will reject the truth and chase after myths. — 2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NLT)
