Jogging into spring

Ah.. a strip devoted to Gil and Mimi doing something together, be it having coffee, making dinner, drinking lemonade on the porch, or jogging to stay in shape, is a sure sign we have transitioned from the winter of Max and Bobby to the spring of… who knows, but as is always the case, hope for a better storyline then the last one, which is eager to be flushed down the garbage disposal. We always wind up with one or both characters being so disagreeable that we hope never to see them again, but it turns out Max is only suspended, so we may see him fielding grounders from new assistant Coach Slim Chance or perhaps another former Milford athlete who flunked out of community college and needs something to do so Gil can do nothing. Except drink lemonade, jog, or play 1 round of golf in the dark. Time to fill in the blanks for another story – batter up!

  1. Ah, Robmize, you forgot the most important word… “spiked”, as in “spiked lemonade”. We wouldn’t want Our Hero to develop a sudden case of sober lucidity, would we?
    And who gives a crap about Bobby? Mack Swell’s obviously the grievously injured party here, even though he instigated the whole brouhaha in the first place with his cretin-level understanding of neurochemistry.
    All that aside, yes this arc deserves to be dropped in the rubbish bin and we need to hope these two loathsome boobs never darken our comics portal again. All we can hope for is a better arc for Opening Day, and as has been said by worthier folks than I, Liesl gets to stick around as a reward for being the only character who wasn’t a loathsome meathead during this fiasco.
