Yeah, so that's why my Togetic hits me with cupcakes...
Also, random non-canon theory that could scientifically work for the win?
Anyway, that's Laura in Panels 5 and 6. I'm ignoring the fact that she would not have called me Jake back then just to spite those of you who keep getting confused when they her Laura call me such (remember, this is a flashback to my freshman year; I'm a senior). Laura did appear in a previous comic (the Minnesota one) with her Oddish.
