Mmm, vacation

I can kind of sympathize with today's strip. Growing up, my family tended to take trips to tropical places during the rainy season. But really, this is more a case of, "Yeah, that sucks" (which is the correct description for the examples in "Ironic" by Alanis Morissette) that something that happens every time. Unless you have particularly bad luck. Or parents who travel during the rainy season.

And while that does totally suck, if you're going on a tropical beach vacation, you're probably going to relax. Which, quite honestly, you can do in a hotel room. And then you won't have to worry about sunburn! By the time I went on a cruise last fall, I didn't really care if it had rained the whole time. I could've spent the week in bed and been content. Though going snorkeling and parasailing was awesome. So.

The people in the background frustrate me, because it shows that Al can draw attractive people, he just chooses not to. Ever.

And what's up with the arror pointing to the balloon in the top panel? Oh, we're supposed to read that! Thanks for pointing it out, Al!

what?? no snide comment about the grammar malfunction in the second panel "...it do happen"?? This morning I bet a coworker that you would certainly spot that and make some smartass remark as usual. But noooo...goodbye $20!!!
If you're gonna nitpick you gotta nitpick ALL THE TIME!!!

I've been thinking about "TDIET". Maybe it's not trying to elicit pity for those caught it its sinister web. Perhaps Scaduto is instead showing us these poor souls so we have something to direct our hate? Just a thought.

anon, I don't notice the grammatical mistakes anymore; I just assume they're part of Al's bizarre lingo and let them slide. If I thought about them too much, my head would explode.
