Andreas October 5, 2022 at 4:26 am 2 months ago That name now always reminds me of a certain danish children’s show. Efogoto October 5, 2022 at 11:42 am 2 months ago Huh. I keep thinking her first name is Phyllis. Sean K. October 5, 2022 at 9:42 pm 2 months ago @Efogoto – That’s the first reference I thought of when the character was introduced, too. Flyswatter October 5, 2022 at 6:33 am 2 months ago You beat me to it. Pete Rogan October 5, 2022 at 10:07 pm 2 months ago The problem isn’t a helper feeling helpless. The problem is when somebody else, maybe not a helper but just somebody in the right place at the right time with the right tools and information, fixes the problem the helper cannot. There is a step below being helpless, and that is feeling useless. Worse, redundant. What do they need YOU for, after all? Not a good place to be. Choan stands where a lot of people have stood and she, too, will have to find her own way out of it. Without feeling the whole effort is pointless. But that’s a different, if related problem. Dr. Moosen McMoose, Chief Spymooster of the Moosad October 6, 2022 at 2:44 pm 2 months ago I broke my Choan once. It was painful. jediadept October 6, 2022 at 11:13 pm 2 months ago I’m thinking Chaons plan is to invoke the Diller luck factor by slyly playing the “No idea” card.
