    just like we thought, a prequel to last Saturdays strip

    wouldve been funnier to NOT run it and just everyone hanging, wondering what the other strip was about…

    A couple days longer than I expected, but the brick finally comes home to roost.

    I think I mangled that metaphor.

    She’s thinking, ok, if this doesn’t work, I’ll have wasted a whole day….

    And if it DOES, I’ll have to repeat a whole WEEK.


    Hence her expression.


    Besides, this would seem to be a rOdd Perry drawing, and he does that particular Brevity “hapless” so well.
    I miss it!

    Of course, she’s still a child.


    The older we get, the more we’d love to be given some time to do over.

    BTW, I answered Dogsniff, x_tech and the col kinda late yesterday…..

    It’s been one of those days.


    And…. finally… a public service announcement for US readers:


    " ‘box clever’ (British)
    to behave in a clever and sometimes slightly dishonest way to try to achieve a result you want. "

    You’re welcome, No. 6.

    Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.

    Now they are caught in an infinite time loop. When they get in the box they will be sent back to last week and when this week comes they will get into the box, no wonder she is frowning.

    Bricks roost? I should say you did.

    The inventor of the time machine was a scientist named Dr. Stein. He immediately committed a robbery of large proportion and fled beyond the statutes of limitation where he was arrested. After a long trial by a learned judge he was found not guilty. The judge’s ruling was: “A niche in time saves Stein”.
