Pig, consider yourself lucky to make it past five; most pigs are slaughtered before they reach one.
It only hurts when I laugh.
You just Seussed that out, Pig?
Life is what happens while you’re making other plans.
If you don’t set your sights too high, life is less disappointing. Watching my two great grandchildren growing up has been a complete justification for my existence.
Sigh. The only places I go are in the woods.
Five is just right. By six you start school.
Ouch. Not funny, Pastis. Too close to the truth.
Everyone who is not five knows the truth of that statement.
Better in the womb. No worries everything is free ! … Croc Power !
I’m having a better time now.
Since most of our adult lives are spent working and raising families, sometimes those “places you’ll go” have to wait until you retire. And then you gotta hope you have the health and finances to go anywhere.
“The future isn’t what it used to be.”
Idk! Pig has been is a lot of distress lately! Call Pigita….maybe she’ll lift his spirits…..maybe
yeah, at 5 somebody else is paying the bills.
The sad part is that you don’t realize it until later.
I couldn’t agree more!
Don’t forget the grave.
The places I’ll go? You mean to the bathroom several times during the night?
At least Pig wasn’t cooked up and served as ribs.
The price of bacon in China is rising. Their pigs are being decimated. https://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2019/08/15/751090633/swine-fever-is-killing-vast-numbers-of-pigs-in-china
Pastis better watch it or somebody is going to Seuss him
Well, it worked out for Peter Pan.
Life’s a bitch. Then, you die.
Depends on the the type of family environment you grew up in. Not everyone’s childhood was fortunate. As for me I had a very blessed childhood. I miss being five
Well, for most of us; anyway.
yeah well I’m going to DISNEYLAND on monday!
Here you have the perfect example of a pig in a poke!
Some aspects of life are excellent at that age: No added cost housing, meals, health care, clothing and toys, and plenty of sleep. On the other hand, no choices on anything that matters, no elections, and you cannot vote w/ your feet. On the 3rd hand, mostly you don’t even notice that there are no choices because, hey, you’re five!
Anyone who takes Pig as his guru or anyone who takes Pig’s advice is mentally five!
Long serious comment warning. Please skip if you dislike rhapsodizing on comic strips.
Work: I help people protect their assets, provide for their loved ones, and plan for long-term financial security. I work in a safe, climate-controlled environment where I can use my talents and skills. It is not fun, but it is challenging, stable, and profitable.
Home: A haven in a sea of troubles. Shelter, protection, permanence. At times, excruciatingly lonely, but nevertheless always safe.
Bed: God’s design for Man’s physical, mental, and emotional renewal continues to baffle and elude us. I struggle with sleep but am learning to prioritize it.
Everyone should have these and better. Not everyone has even what I am blessed with.
But you know what, Pig? These places can be pretty good, even great, places to go.
Baby pig is so cute!
