Something about this July 4th-themed Frazz strip by Jef Mallett just gets something right about how July 4th works a certain kind of magic retroactively.
A three-day weekend is rarely my friend, especially during the summer when things are warmer than usual. The afternoons just tend to linger, no matter how much I’ve planned ahead. I have gotten some reading done, talked to family for a bit, enjoyed a moment downtown by the water with a golfer’s tea in hand. But there’s still that “slipped by” feeling that Caulfield mentions, even when it’s July 3rd.
