I don't know if it deserves another investigation, but I wanted to feature the Chest Baby again. It worked nicely with today's strip, as I also wanted to work in Noam's response to me making and eating a salad.
I hate cooking (I include pasta and rice as cooking, so it really leaves me with very little to eat) so when she heard I made myself lunch with a salad started, she immediately assumed other forces were in work. Cue Chest Baby. There's your explanation.
