Abby is promising that, if she ever gains the power to foresee the future, she will begin looking for a boyfriend some time afterwards (because then she’ll know how best to avoid actually finding one.)
TEXT OF COMIC:
Yes. Uh huh. Yes, OKAY.
Yes, I understand your worries about me being alone forever and never giving you grandchildren. I see how hard that must be for you. Yes, Mom. Yes, please don’t worry.
YES. Look, I PROMISE I will start looking for a boyfriend some time in the foreseeable future.
Okay. Uh huh. Bye.
Did you actually just cave in and make that promise to your mom? Is she that overbearing?
Well, see, I left a loophole.
The “foreseeable future” isn’t actually a real thing.
