    I knew somebody like that back at the phone company.

    I bet he has wife who is demanding her pants back.

    Embedding an image didn’t seem to work, so here’s the date.

    Here’s a link to the date Norm!. Not one of my favorite characters but he plays his role.

    I just wish posting images were as easy here as it is on Facebook. And I had to really search the archives to find that old Norm strip. Kyle never put dates on his strips, so I had to triangulate by the nearest major holiday gag, and count in sixes from there.

    That’s the magic of having an expanded cast! Keeps us from settling in our comfort zones, so we can keep it varied. You never know what characters will become the favorites of different readers.

    It’s possible he’s so anxious because his mother didn’t like him and because of that he never felt a calming sense of security. And he could have compounded his problems by marrying a woman that is like his mother.

    He looked pretty normal in his first appearance. Now he looks like someone is trying to frazzle his last nerve. Poor guy.

    Norm reminds me of a guy I used to work with, too. This guy would come in wearing a clean shirt, and no matter what temperature it was in the building, he’d have softball-sized armpit stains in about 15 minutes. Norm strikes me as a person who sweats like that.

    He’d only just been promoted. This is how he looks after he’s been on the job for awhile.

    Thanks; the date was all it took; that and the calendar that is above the strip. I know it’s a matter of personal taste, but I much prefer your artwork to that of Kyle.
