This is part one of the missing hand story. It’ll continue in the next two or three strips. For those of you who thought the missing hand had something to do with the Tanoopsie incident from chapter 6 (which begins read here, in case you missed it), you win three Scootsie Points. I’m going to leave this basket full of Scootsie Points on the table and let you take however many you earned on the honor system – not because I trust you, but because these points have zero value whatsoever.
