Today's Hi and Lois

Elaine put it best: "This Hi and Lois is on drugs."

A context clue (i.e., the strip's second panel) suggests that the large white shape in the first panel is neither a chest freezer nor a radiator nor a rogue wall but a faucetless sink, with a mirror and partly-tiled wall behind it and a shower curtain and tub to the right. Got that?

It's almost enough to make one overlook that the bathoom is missing a door.

I like how the tub/shower moves from the sink wall - the 12 o'clock position, if you will - to the 3 o'clock position in frame 2.

As for the doorless entry - they're a very...open family.

Kudos for catching the tub shift, Rob, and for the clarity of your explanation.
