This Week in Milford

May 29, 2021

He’s Not Wrong

Wherever you’re reading this, faithful TWIMers, I hope the weather is better than it is here. Forty-eight degrees and raining is not what I expect to wake up to on the last weekend in May. The better to remember that the true meaning of Memorial Day is not to hit the beaches or the mountains and fire up the grill. So what if we have to spend it out in the cold?

Speaking of out in the cold, that’s where Zane Clark is today. Nothing he says in today’s strip is factually wrong in context (and also serves to answer one of our nagging questions of how Milford Library Board members are chosen) and yet he now finds “that cute girl he makes out with in the history section” may be history to him. Katy knows Zane’s situation, knows her old man’s hard-on against the library, knows what might happen if her old man gets the job, yet still gets pissy when she finds out her boyfriend actively tries to prevent all that from happening? Better off without her, bruh, or at least that’s what Gonzo Aceves is hinting to him.

Can we talk? Can I digress for a moment? I just want to point out the sudden improvement in uniform accuracy on the part of the Chief. From all appearances it looks like Zane and Gonzo are throwing a bullpen session in practice and are actually dressed as if they’re practicing – that is unless Gil’s broken out gamers with shorts like the Bill Veeck-era White Sox. Nice to see a Milford team practicing in actual practice unis for once.

Back to the main plot arc: What are the odds the Milford Library Board selection hinges on oratory, and Zane gives one that puts Jefferson Smith to shame? Something’s gotta make Katy see the error of her ways, dunnit? By that time Zane will have moved on to that snoopy librarian or poor Landry Carlson, who’s always getting hit on this spring.

It’s gotten very quiet here; the rain’s finally stopped pounding against my roof. Time to contemplate the true meaning of Memorial Day once again. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, gentle readers, and we’ll see you back here next week.

  1. Katy wants hockey dad to win so he’ll be home less. I guess.
    Oh so clever phrases the world can do without:
    Ya think?!
    Good luck with that.
    Same shit, different day.
    Having fun yet?
    There’s more but that’s a start. Add to it if youz like.

  3. So you’ve got the exact same weather we had yesterday. Today it’s sunny and 60° and will get warmer Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. So good stuff to look forward to,

  4. I’ll be playing wiffleball and picnicking with 66 people, none of whom would run for a library board. We had crappy weather too yesterday but its gonna be a great weekend from here on out.

  5. WTF is she even complaining about? Nobody is making her “choose” anything!

  6. I would complain about the lameness of this story and how Katy is as likable as PP, but no one is making me read this story either

  7. It is pretty lame, Frank, and to paraphrase Gordon Lightfoot, it’s getting lamer. No Summer Side of Life to this. I do not blame you a bit, My Man.
