I may have said this the last time we saw it, but I just say that Rain’s dress is based on a real one (it isn’t exact, mind you. The hip flair is my own personal touch). I don’t own it, and really have no practical use for it, but god do I want it.

Also, I don’t normally give Rain headbands. That’s kind of Maria’s shtick. And yet, when I was trying to decide on what Rain would wear on this date, the thought of giving her one WOULD NOT LEAVE ME ALONE. I’m glad I gave in though. She is freaking adorable in this chapter.

As for the running gag with Jessica’s name, I’m just having fun at this point. ;P Seriously though, what do you guys think? Is Fara really having that much trouble remembering her name, or is she just teasing by this point?

I'm with Lauren on that, and Jessica looks like she's getting pretty POed about it too!

you know, given what Fara's been through dealing with Rain, you'd think she'd be a whole lot more sympathetic concerning the name, due to the whole trans-and-identity issues that crop up.

Poor Jessica

Jessica, I feel your pain, though technically no gets my name wrong, I somehow get the same feeling that Jessica gets when Fara calls her by the wrong name. Also Rain looks very cute. ^_^

Rain looks so gosh darn pretty in that dress. I wish I was small enough to pull off a look like that.

She's definitely teasing, while I'm assuming that Fara gets Jessica's name right when it counts. At least it's all female names.

Of course, now that the joke has been called out in the comic (twice, actually), it's not going to be funny anymore, and I thought "Jezebel" was a little harsh even if it is the closest Fara's come to accuracy. But eh.

She's a teacher, she has plenty of children name to remember and remember them for sure. She's obviously teasing her, maybe even flirting ;)

Definitely teasing, I hate when people call me the wrong name or mispronounce it. It also doesn't help that I have 3 sisters and all our names start with a N.

@LittleLynn84: Rain is absolutely adorable in this. I would love to look this good if I ever got the gumption to wear a dress.

As far as Fara goes, she's a smart woman. At this point, I don't think she's making fun of Jessica so much as making fun of her own inability to remember her name. Heck, she may have done it so much that she truly doesn't remember her first name.

The Cuteness!

The cuteness is overwhelming. The dress is adorable...
And ... ...
Fara is teasing. I don't know why, exactly. Perhaps it's her way of slightly pointedly reminding Jessica who owns the house? -- and who has the right of last comment on all things Rain?

People get my name worng all the time, but I'm used to it by now.
Fara is clearly just teasing Jessica, but as usual, she can take it a little too far. Maybe it's time to stop it.

Though it is adorable as one of the only running gags of this comic (if not the only one), never saying someone's name aloud and acting like you can't remember it can be a pretty big deal. I know Fara is just teasing at this point, but it would be a pretty big pay-off to have her state Jessica's name in a meaningful way lateron ^_^
