Happy Prehistoric-and-Thus-Slightly-Less-Than-New Year

Yeah, I have no excuse:  I recognize that this comic is only marginally related to New Year's, and that just because I threw an unrelated picture in at the end.

But if my Awful Picture has little to do with New Year's Eve mostly because I prefer to have little to do with New Year's Eve.

I'm like the Grinch of New Year's Eve.  Except I'm too terrified to venture out into the scary drunk Hooville New Year's Eve celebrations to steal the Roast Beast and the Cheer Beer or whatever it is Hoos get drunk on.

So I draw mastodons instead.

A Discussion on Last Night's Reading

Then we get divorced, remarry in the morning, and by bedtime we're so exhausted from the day's festivities we can't decide whether or not we want to read.

It's like someone pitched a movie by saying, "Think Four Weddings and a Funeral meets Groundhog Day."
And we're the most disappointing of all the outtakes on that movie's DVD.

Finding the Value of X(mas)

Seriously, you would not believe how often this sort of conversation happens.  Our daughters have learned over the years that the best way to derail any criticism or discipline from their parents is with the strategic deployment of extreme erudition.  This scheme, to the best of our knowledge, has no known counter move.

Curse you, children, and your exceptional research skills.

What Do You Get the Stick Man Who Has Nothing?

So on the one hand, Older Daughter gets bonus points for taking all the pictures used in today's post.

On the other hand, she also made all the words in her stick-on tattoos backwards.

She gave me permission to point that out.

Merry Christmas.  Again.

Laugh Tracking

For the record, I offered to clean the schmutz off Younger Daughter's face in the last panel, but she told me not to.
She thinks it looks like a dimple.  It looks about as much like a dimple as Younger Daughter looks like my ACTUAL younger daughter.

Which I guess kind of works.

Breaking a Bed Habit

I mean, I could just go and buy us a new alarm clock, I suppose, but then I wouldn't have these opportunities to help my wife be less negative.
