Ja, wel. Die boek was veronderstel om woorde in te hĂȘ, maar dit het nie uitgewerk om in die program die teks ordentlik die kurwe van die bladsy te maak volg nie. So ek verduidelik toe maar alles in Louwrens se gedagtes. Ons is toe al die tyd die baddies ...

Nog 'n ding, ja, Louwrens en parasetamol is nie vriende nie. Dis hoe dit met my is en hy deel nou maar my swakheid :P

(En die Om-Ankh ou lyk per ongeluk nogal soos Ethan Macmanus van Ctrl+Alt+Del)


Yeah, well. The book was supposed to have words in it, but it didn't work out to do this in the program and still have the words follow the curve of the page properly. So then I just explained everything in Louwrens's thoughts instead. So all the time we were the bad guys ...

Another thing, yes, Louwrens and paracetamol (known in the US as acetaminophen) aren't friends. That's how it is with me and now he shares my weakness :P

(And the Om-Ankh guy accidentally looks kinda like Ethan Macmanus from Ctrl+Alt+Del)


TRANSLATION:

PANEL 1
Mrs. Du Toit: Ach no, shame! What happened?
Louwrens: Oh, uh ... I ... fell off the chair? Yeah ...
Mrs. Du Toit: I thought I heard you shouting something ...
Louwrens: Uh yeah, can't remember what ...

PANEL 2
Mrs. Do Toit: Can I get you something?
Louwrens: Well uh, some or other sort of painkiller? But something with little paracetamol [acetaminophen], it doesn't help me ...
(thinks) To think that ... I almost can't believe it, but according to the book's descriptions, it has to be so ...

PANEL 3
Louwrens: (thinks) It was us all the time ... we are the Om-Ankh ... / I don't know how or why, but ...

NOTES ON THE WALL (PANEL 1):
"Buy more Prestiek [sic]!" Prestik is a brand of adhesive putty used to hold things in place temporarily while fixing them, stick notes to the wall, etc.
"Guitar lessons Saturday 10:00"
"Fetch MICROWAVE from MIKE" Reference to a guy called Mike whom I know IRL. Who is a handyman and all-round fixer-upper.

I appreciate that you took the time to translate this, and I admire you for being willing and able to translate your comic. I wish you the best of luck, and I think you should be aware that you are an amazing individual.
