Strip by: KelpTheGreat

{Val enters her living room to find her friends and family sitting around, apparently expecting her}
Val: What's... up?
Evie: Valerie, we're all here because we love you.
{Evie approaches Val and puts her arms on her shoulders}
Evie: You have a problem.
{Val's friends and family gather around her for support}
Val: But... it makes me feel good.
Wally: We understand, but... you don't seem to be able to set limits.
Holly: Before work...
Joan: After work...
Rena: AT work...
Evie: Late at night...
Phil: Hours of your life you can't get back!
Unidentifiable offscreen voice: It's time to face it... set an example for your children.
Val: {dejectedly} OK.
{Val draws herself up, bracing herself for her admission}
Val: *sniff* My name is Val, and I'm addicted to YouTube.
Joan: {aside, to Rena} I think I might be an enabler.

The author writes:

Jan Eliot has forgotten to draw Phil's mustache on occasion, which I can forgive, but this Sunday strip was an egregious example: within the course of three panels, he's drawn without his mustache twice. I think my fix looks... okay?
