Whoof, had to recolor this one.

This ran Saturday, September 9, 2006, the day before Roomies!’s ninth anniversary.  (Because strips didn’t run on Sundays at the time.)   So, y’know, here.  It’s a double-sized color anniversary strip.  I guess!

*scratches brain* i’m pretty sure the kid here in billie’s uterus is born on the tenth anniversary strip, so, uh, i’m guessing this strip actually “happens” a few months later than this was published, i dunno, or the tenth anniversary one “happened” earlier

or it’s just a 13-month gestational period who knows

anyway happy leap year
