    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.

    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”.
