Ian took one look at today’s “Sherman Lagoon” and mumbled that he totally understood what it was saying. In the strip, the wife says, “Sherman, I don’t feel like eating in tonight. Let’s go to a restaurant.”
Wife: “Let’s have sushi.”
Sherman: “Works for me.”
Wife: “Not just any sushi. Unagi, sake, and California roll.”
Sherman: “Sounds good.”
Wife: “I made a reservation for 7:30.”
Friend (sitting next to Sherman during whole conversation): “Does she make all the decisions?”
Sherman: “Just the little ones. On a day-to-day basis she calls the shots, all the while knowing that the grand master plan is mine.”
Wife (from other room, holding tie out): “Here, try this tie on.”
Friend (while Sherman ties tie): “So, what happens next in the master plan?”
Sherman: “Got me. I’ve got it written down somewhere.”
And that, my friends, is what made Ian laugh—it’s only funny because it may or may not be true.
Thought: you can’t expect other people to be any more perfect than you are yourself.
