For those outside of the greater Glens Falls, NY region, the Post-Star is the local daily newspaper. My comic strip runs in The Chronicle one of the local weekly newspapers, so they’re competitors for local ads. Anyway, this is a true story and I thought it was funny at the time. Although I debated posting it on the website, it is the last un-posted strip from 2012, so here it is, rounding out the year.
Were we all scared about the Mayan calendar coming to an end? I guess some more than others. Some people were hoarding food, whiles others were cleaning things up. Anyway, I’m glad it turned out to be much ado about nothing.
My son and daughter play a lot of Monopoly. He loves it because he frequently wins; she just liked to play games. It often amazes me than can be so pissed off at each other over one of these games and five minutes be back at it like nothing happened. In a way, I guess that’s good.
I make no bones over the fact my wife is the fitness/healthy living person of our family and I’m the watch TV/eat junk food person. We all have our roles to play. On the one hand, I know she’s right; I should exercise more and eat better. On the other hand enjoying an old movie and drinking beer is far less stressful.
