Life with Lawrence: Being a friend

Elizabeth Harris, Cartoonist

Lawrence the shark and Emily the turtle are shown standing on a green hill. The sun is out and Lawrence has a smiley face on his shirt. In the first panel, Emily says “You’re my best friend Lawrence!” Then Lawrence replies “Aww! I’m so lucky to have a friend like you” In the second panel Lawrence says, “A friend is someone you can be yourself with.” Emily replies, “You can laugh and cry together!” In the third panel Emily says, “Yeah! I’ve always got your back!” Confused, Lawrence replies, “Wait… last time I checked, my fin was still attached to my back?” In the final panel Emily clarifies herself, “Haha! No silly, it means I’ll always be there for you!” Lawrence replies, “Oh! I was a little worried there!”
