    It’s too cerebral for Mom.

    Instead of the time block, just tell him to write three double spaced pages. But he definitely has to write one double spaced page a day.

    If Zip is smarter than Mom, then Jeff is waaay smarter. Poor Joanie!

    Maybe “It is I, Rick, father of Jeff” can enter next strip to save Joanie’s bacon?

    @DTPi Thanks for the link…that was indeed a great strip, and a great punchline.

    “It is I, Rick, father of Jeff” = one of Trudeau’s all-time punchlines.

    I’m sorry, I don’t understand the problem. Done most of my best work between waking and sleeping.

    Wait. Does this mean Zipper is up and about at nine in the morning?

    Of course— texting! But surely Joanie is also capable of texting…

    Maybe Jeff is working. Maybe he dreams all those stories and then writes them down when he wakes up.

    I think Joanie’s needs to start asking for the dailies — so she can “proof” them.

    Her house, her business. If Jeff doesn’t agree, he can take his business to the street.

    “But, is Joanie capable of minding her own business?”


    Does Joanie’s “business” = providing free room and board for her feckless 30-year-old son till the Lord comes?

    “Her house? She did not build it”


    The highway you drive to work on? You did not build it.
