In any given timeline, Amanda is going to have an irrational annoyance of Andie. It's fate, be it in my original 2001-era comics or my latest strips in Mary Elizabeth's Sock. Amanda will always find a reason to turn a cold shoulder while Andie runs over for a hug. This is infinitely sad.
Sharp-eyed readers may notice from the part in Amanda's hair that I had to flip every panel of this strip from the original artwork. As has happened in the past, my younger self once again forgot to draw the characters in the order of their dialog, so the original version of this comic had a lot of criss-crossing balloon tails. As such, the art was flipped in this remastered version so it'd be easier to read.
