This is depressing

So, whiny Les Moore married Cayla whatever her name was. And this strip crowned it off today:

I was beginning to think my life would never have a 'best thing that happened to me' moment

Okay, let's just accept for the sake of argument that this is the best thing that ever happened to her. Fine. But think about what she's actually just said.

Her life has never had a moment she thought of as the best thing that ever happened to her. Not one. And that includes her daughter - who, by the way is hidden from sight in this panel, presumably behind the guy wiping the tear from his eye, since that's Les's daughter turned to smirk smile at someone behind him, and yesterday she and Keisha were high-fiving each other.

What she's saying is that nothing in her life to date has been in any way special or good. It's all been one morass of misery. (Which might explain why she's marrying Les - and why she got the nose job, new hair-do, and other bits of cosmetic make-over since it can't be because Batiuk became afraid he was drawing her 'too black', not the enlightened one!*) Not that this moment is better; that there was never one moment she thought of as the best. And that's just ... depressing.

*If you don't read Funky Winkerbean - and really, why should you? - you may think I'm exaggerating. Nope. Check out Cayla from May, 2011:
