Love that “don’t tell anyone, it’s a secret” panel 5.

I was surprised to see this one from Flo, because it’s pretty close to my own ideal about how to be. I may’ve already broken out the Abraham Lincoln quote “Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be,” but it’s one I try to hold to. (Yes, you’re allowed sadness, and sometimes terrible things happen to you or others and it’s right to feel bad about those. But on a more macro scale, such feelings can be part of a positive outlook, because they promote overall health.)

Neither Flo nor I always lived up to Colonnus’ ideal, and sometimes we were pretty HUUUAAAGHHH at each other, but it was nice to be reminded of it. And it was nice to explore this fun, upbeat character in a way we wouldn’t really get to in the canon.
