This is the first comic that Melody has appeared in without her sister Lois, and her second appearance overall. The phrase “Actually, I was lying.” were words that she actually said, when I questioned her about something, probably brushing her teeth. I wrote the rest of the strip around that quote.

At some point, I will probably have to explain why I named the comic strip after Lois instead of Melody. The truth is, that although the strip started 3 years after Melody was born, the concept and title of the strip was conceived sometime before Lois was born. More importantly, all the good domain names involving “Melody” have already been taken. “Making Melodies,” “My Melodies,” etc. Hence I decided to stick with the name I came up with so many years ago.
