Call back to a MUCH older comic, if you recall.
I know there are some people who are uncomfortable talking about money matters, but I’ve never really been one of them. And after all, it’s a journal comic right? Loosely realistic, yes, but still a journal comic at heart.
Interesting side note: since I couldn’t post at home, I’m currently uploading today’s comic with my computer atop an arcade machine featuring Frogger, Donkey Kong, Pacman, etc. Seems appropriate.
