Hart Brachen (the dude who writes this thing):
OK, readers, all this non-stop action, stone on stone Olympic curling action has worn my droopy ass out, so I'm taking the day off.
I offer you another flashback to 2004 strip: "Fantasize a little."
One interesting thing about the flashback strip (well, to me at least) is I think it's the only occasion where the characters Doug and Susan appear together. (Susan, you see, doesn't much like Doug. I'll leave the backstory on that for another time.)
