Shared Features

enable images

 Don't you just love it when two people are talking without communicating? That tends to happen when one person takes something literally (I did not give my nose to my daughter; she has her own nose) whereas the other person is speaking in the broader sense about something (children usually look like their parents which we refer to as 'having' the features of their parents). I don't remember which feature was in question when this comic was inspired by a conversation - it might have been my hair or eye color. I really like my hair color, and my eye color is nice too. 

M: I think Lucy will have your nose.
L: No, she will have her own nose.
M: You never know!
L: You kind of do.
