When life gives you lemons.
Unlike me, Bill Beagle has this amazing resilience about him. Maybe being a fictional character helps him cope with rejection better. If I were him, I'd have moved on long ago, but he's bound and determined to hook up with Patty (in one sense or another). Here, he's turned a liability into an asset--the growling stomach that embarrassed him as recently as Monday now does his bidding on Wednesday (you should know the strip ran on a Monday/Wednesday/Thursday schedule, based on the DTH's editors' estimates of readership). Speaking of editors, this was the series that caused them to summon me to their office. More on that later.
