Arlo: Not only are the days getting shorter, the nights are getting longer.
I’ve noticed that recently, too…
I work 6 to 6. So I don’t see day light for a few months. oh well…
We should adjust our schedules as the days get shorter. Humans would naturally sleep longer when the hours of daylight are shorter, but that basic human need will never be respected & addressed in our culture.
I too work 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Can barely stand daylight but my night vision is awesome!
Hey, it’s easy to go to bed early when it’s dark around seven…
Arlo is bucking for a promotion to Major Obvious.
If you don’t like the long, dark nights of winter, move toward the equator.
I think Arlo’s point is, that with the night’s getting longer, it takes him longer to empty his bladder in the morning. See panel 3, which I believe is an exterior view of his bathroom window. Only in A&J.
Ever notice when you have to take a pee at 3 am, daylight savings time doesn’t change it… it doesn’t change to 4 or 2 its always 3 (at least that’s how it works for me)
I remember working long hours, from dark to dark. Then one day I saw my car in the daylight and was shocked to see how dirty it had become.
Figured out I worked 10 years of each of 3 shifts during my career. Yikes!
The time a man spends in front of the throne is directly proportional to his age!
I couldn’t make out the third frame, but after blowing it up, I see that it’s from outside (grass in foreground) of Arlo looking out the nighttime window. It must be new-moon time for him.
In a few years Arlo will find himself taking a half-time break around 3:00 am – all year round.
