Page 98 will be up roughly around the same time as last week’s (2-3 pm PST). I was so caught up on thumbnailing the rest of the chapter that I lost track of time and forgot today was Monday. Seriously! I’m really bad at checking the clock, especially after all this Daylight Savings Time mumbo-jumbo.
(So for some of you folks, you might be looking at the page up 1 hour later than what I just wrote because your country/state is sensible.)
However, the good news is that I’m more or less done with thumbnailing the rest of the December chapter, aside from some tweaking some parts here and there, so theoretically there shouldn’t be any delays from this point.
By the way if you guys have any question about Carl or Dude’s history (or their relationships with other characters), I don’t mind answering! HOWEVER, I will say that pretty much anything I answer on Dude’s family might be spoilerific.
A reader asked what languages does Carl speak, and I thought I’d extend that question to Dude too!
Carl, being born and raised in central California, grew up speaking English. When he was very young, he was raised predominantly by his grandmother, so he learned some Portuguese. However, after she moved out of the house, Carl pretty much forgot most of the Portuguese he learned. He knows a few words here and there, but not enough to hold a conversation with anyone.
In high school, he took a year of French (as a required elective). He barely remembers any of it.
Dude pretty much exclusively speaks English. That was the language spoken at home, and that’s all he’s learned. However, in high school he took three years of Spanish and surprisingly retained most of his knowledge on the language. He can speak a little conversational Spanish, but he butchers the pronunciation. Badly.
