This Week in Milford

They’re Not Really Sitting That Far Away

Filed under: Boredom in Milford — timbuys @ 5:49 am


Today’s strip is one where it really doesn’t pay off to read this stuff every day. I am curious just how drunk this customer thinks Del is supposed to get as part of their ‘celebration’ but that’s about all the interest I can come up with for today.

Be sure to tune in tomorrow where we will doubtless get more talk/non-talk about Boo’s no-hitter and Del’s fleeting abstinence.




  1. I liked Boos attitude in P1. Then she went baseball superstitious lame. Jinxes are for Cub fans. Let them wear they’re stupid rally caps and continue to lose another 100 plus years.

  2. P3; If you squint really hard, that might be George Thorogood sitting there. With a lot less hair. Drinking alone.

  3. A smart salesman would have a ready comeback. “Sorry, bud, I’m on some medication, gotta stay off the sauce until my doctor gives the okay.” Or even, “Sorry, man, I’m an alcoholic, but I’ll have a near-beer.” Instead, Del is either going to slam down some drinks and get busted again, or he’s going to bitch about the nasty judge — who will turn out to be a friend of the client’s.

  4. Now Del looks like Richard Nixon.

    When Sotmug McDrinkerson announced his intention to CELEBRATE, the last thing I pictured was them ordering glasses of wine.

  5. True. I was picturing the artillery myself, probably martinis. But I admit I was distracted by the side by side Boo and Del stories. Usually this means the separate events are part of the same story, but unless this is “Bonfire of the Vanities,” these appear unrelated. Unless of course Del falls off the wagon, drives home blasted, and causes an accident which the players witness from the team bus. How long has it been since a character has gone into the ditch? John Pascoe intervened when he happened on an accident, but the last one I remember was Marty in his drunk ‘n disorderly period, when Gil tried to help him.

  6. Good point, Ned. Not that you can’t get pie eyed from drinking wine but it’s a pretty pricey way to go unless your drinking Gallo from a jug.

  7. Ned, Del looks more like Tricky Dick today than Bobby Bittmayne ever did. First Cruz, then Nixon; which Republican will he look like tomorrow? My money’s on a cross between Joe McCarthy and Pat Buchanan.
