The 19th hole

I guess theyve already had time to play 18 after Hadley was practicing her putting and making Every putt. Wonder how she did in ostensibly her first round of golf in either her life or – how long? (By the way, How Long is a chinaman.) At any rate, theyre enjoying some Arnold Palmers under an umbrella.

P1 shows the waitress holding a tray in her left hand and carrying 1 drink in her right. You only hold the 1  drink if you’re at the table and putting it down on said table. If you cant fit all the drinks on 1 tray, either you arent very good or you need a bigger tray. There appears to be plenty of room on her tray for that drink. And you hold the tray with your fingers at the far end of the tray curled around the edge, so it doesnt tip over if someone jostles you. She has her hand under the middle, so tipping it over would be easy if the weight suddenly shifted. I worked at a restaurant for 6 years, and cant recall a waitress spilling drinks like that even once. But I only worked parttime and I’m sure it did, but not often.

We dont know who the 4th in the group is, she was probably the same one who was watching Hadley putt yesterday. Or perhaps Mimi? Tomorrow may tell.

Gil is rehashing the story about Tiki Jansen and the video of which the details escape me, perhaps tomorrow it can be remembered in better detail. Hadley also wants to see the video, and Gil smartly says Kaz can email it to her. Wow– finally a snappy decision and course of action, instead of HVB traipsing across the Milford-verse going door to door for info on the TRANSFER OF TIKI.

So the next action in the story will be Hadley determining who has rights to Tiki’s services based on a video. That will take all next week. By then I’ll be prepared with last years backstory. Until then, I’m making myself an Arnold Palmer. Cheers!



  1. Tough disciplinarian Gil has to mention that he benched him after the school sleuths did his dirty work. But of course this year he’s benching a kid who lives IN the district because the team “needs” Tiki. Here’s hoping Tiki gets TORCHED many times this year by receivers over 5’4”. Get it torched? Ha Ha Ha! Ho Ho Ho! Heh! Heh Heh! Which is a fine song by the band Flipper. ROCK ON !!!

  2. What does dumb video got to do with anything? Even if the bullies were still there, it’s not Milford high schools problem. More convoluted logic from R&W

  3. Hadley: “You didn’t know about Tiki’s living situation last year, right?”
    Gil: “Failing to know what’s happening around me? I’ve been proactive in that area”.

  4. Today’s strip does not add a lot of handholds. Mention of the video makes me wonder if HvB is thinking of going for some kind of “person in need of protection” standing for Tiki, which might require New Thayer to pay his tuition at Mfnrd. If the Jansens had to give up that Potemkin residence they had last year, it’s unlikely they have the money for tuition, which in anyplace I know would be more than the cost of minimal rent for the school year.

  5. […] funny we haven’t seen Gil in the strip for a couple of weeks. Hope he’s watching more of Joe Bolek’s game film. He’d better keep Hadley on […]
