    When the world gives you lemons, you have some positive options. When the world breaks your arm by busting a durian fruit on it… maybe it’s okay to just hunker and endure.

    (that was a pair of metaphors)

    Can you be sure tomorrow is another day? It might just be this one recycled with a slightly different paint job.

    Confusion will be my epitaph/As I crawl a cracked and broken path/If we make it, we can all sit back and laugh/But I fear, tomorrow, I’ll be crying/Yes, I fear, tomorrow, I’ll be crying/Yes, I fear, tomorrow, I’ll be crying/

    Epitaph , King Crimson , 1968

    The rule is jam every other day. So you get none today. Today isn’t any other day, you know.

    I’m old, getting older faster. Constant pain in several areas, don’t think there’s a single body part or system that is working right. But I’ve come up with a catchy, thought-provoking response to the inane “How are you doing?” greeting. “Worse than yesterday, but better than tomorrow.”

    Today is already great. I expect tomorrow to be no less so. In fact it will be better, because my comics will be better – PBS can’t get lazier that this one.

    Under different circumstances, Rat’s attitude might be called pessimistic, but given our current situation, I’d call him a realist.

    Rat does a nice job with the mime-signs, and shakes up the usually-bubbly Pig! Well done, sir!
