Contemplated a Christmas strip, but my brain when hereabouts, so...here.
I like that this one actually uses the "single piece of art" thing to capture a single moment of time between an error and its consequence, stretched out into three panels of deliberate ignorance and optimism in the mind of the narrator.
Best read with this played at the end of the third panel, or better yet, with a sousaphone equivalent if you know of one.
Keeping it short and sweet, as I've got presents to wrap. Hope you all have a great holiday whatnot!
