The first strip of these two was inspired by my very good friend, Kevin Boze. Kevin is probably one of the cleverest gentlemen I've ever met. He has a lightning fast wit that, when deployed, hits with the grace and accuracy of a drone missile. I'm confident the strip will leave him with a chortle.
I love New Year's Resolutions. I like to think up new ones that nobody has ever thought of before. Frame five of the strip refers to an actual New Year's Resolution that I kept - much to the amusement of my wife. I think during the entire course of the year I only forgot to go "Arg!" at a waitress only a handful of times. The key I have found is to do it just before you launch into your order. And sometimes you get a waitress who is a quick witted as Kevin. Here is how one exchange went...
"Arg! I'd like to have the catfish with red potatoes." I ordered. "What is the soup of the day?"
"Arg! That be Minestroné." the waitress replied. "We be fresh out of Clam Chowder."
