Before Paul can shake off Jackie, he may have to dodge a few bullets…

  1. Best definition of closure I’ve read. I usu don’t like the word because it tends to make folks believe that something is totally over–which is actually psychologically impossible unless we develop permanent amnesia. If we don’t acknowledge/remember the past we can never learn from it.

  2. WORD, Sheila. I was just thinking the other day about “regrets” and how, when I was younger, I used to regret letting this jerkwad or that f**kwit into my life. But now at least I know how to spot them coming, right? Well, at least most of the time.

    And BG, you’ve nailed it, as usual! Great advice about closure … including the last little lesson that sometimes, if outside forces or a misunderstanding caused your breakup, a chance to see each other face-to-face can be the best thing for everyone. :-)

  3. Last week a woman was complaining about men who “vanish” without calling or e-mailing to say the relationship was over. She claimed that women NEEDED to hear from the man in order to have closure.

    My immediate thought was, “You give the jerks in this world that much power over you?”

    If you’re relying on your ex to provide closure, you’re giving power to someone who might withhold it out of spite.

    On a tangent:
    Which Abraham Lincoln did Paul visit? President Lincoln was quite fond of whiskey.

    “It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues.”
    – Abraham Lincoln

  4. Karl, Lincoln may have been fond of *selling* whiskey in the taverns he owned before he became a lawyer, but he himself rarely drank except for an occasional “drop of champagne, just to be civil.” http://www.straightbourbon.com/articles/cclincoln.html
    I was really bummed to find this out after writing the beer-with-Lincoln line in the time travel story, but I kept it in anyway. I was thrilled to come up with a joke that set the record straight; The real Paul (Paul Sullivan) is a presidential history buff, and I didn’t need him coming down on me!

  5. Chris,

    Interesting link.

    A friend of mine is an anthropologist. As a graduate student, she spent a couple summers at a dig at one of Lincoln’s homes (where he lived as an adult).

    For a proclaimed teetotaler, there sure were a lot of empty whiskey bottles that had been discarded in the outhouse….

  6. Not so sure I’m keen on the ending of this one, but the message is clear and makes perfect sense. Just wish I could convey that to my ex’s ex girlfriend (which is why he’s my ex).

  7. Karl, that’s some great inside information there. Sounds like we discovered some secret drinking in the Lincoln household. Mary Todd, I’m looking at you! This is an inspirational tale for all you anthropology graduate students stuck on outhouse duty.

    Terminally Single. Yeah, the ending doesn’t fit the story’s theme because the Paul and Jackie saga isn’t really over. Nor should it be, since they were only pulled apart by circumstance. But never fear — they are not fully back together either, since Jackie continues to be a fugitive. Maybe check back in a few weeks to see how they manage a long distance relationship. 😉

  8. Thanks for the insider info, Chris! 😉

  9. Chris, Lynn, DUDES! Pitch perfect, again.
    (Now, back to a far more relevant comic, before the clock strikes midnight!)

  11. I agree, the ending felt a little off, but it was a great comic about closure.

  14. Toting “4” Johnny Kilroy’s jersey after Michael Jordan retired the Bulls best scorer. In the game against the Hornets cut him go past two defenders from the three-point line in Mourning’s head came a dunk. “No one can be so fast break and dunk my head, unless he is Michael Jordan”, Mourning says after the game. Of course, at the foot of the player named Johnny Kilroy naturally wearing Air Jordan 9. Metallic silver in color, with a black upper with red lining, heel embroidered number “4” back number. Originally printed with “Air Jordan” name of the tongue have been replaced by “Johnny Kilroy”. And in the insole is printed “KILROY KICKS BUTT” word, which means “KILROY is the best.”
