FoxTrot by Bill Amend for December 30, 2012
Roger: Do we have any rice cakes? Andy: I don't think so. What for? Roger: I need to lose weight for my New Year's resolution. Andy: I can pick some up next time I go to the store. Roger: Nah, I'll just drive over and get some now. Andy: It's December 30th, the New Year doesn't start for two more days. What's the hurry? Roger: I'm talking about the resolution I made for THIS year. I need to lose 15 pounds by tomorrow. Andy: Roger, relax. We all come up short on these things now and then. It's not a big deal. Roger: Not a big deal?! A resolution is a pledge! Maybe you don't, but I take my pledges very, very seriously! Andy: By the way, I thought your resolution was to lose 5 pounds, not 15. Roger: Turns out I've gained 10. Andy: How very, very, very sad.
