Today’s retro strip is from 2012 and incorporates a recurring New Year’s Day theme in Arlo & Janis: there is something about the arrival of a new year that causes us to pause and reflect, and when we do we conclude it’s just another day, no more no less. This strip would have driven me crazy if I’d seen it when I was a little kid. I’d have been thinking, “The strip on the refrigerator would show a strip on the refrigerator which would show a strip on the refrigerator… Where does it all end!!?” My teachers all told my parents I was absent minded. They meant my mind was never where they wanted it to be.
