Lynn has a camera in my house. Sort of.

My father-in-law has had a stroke. Actually, it happened a few days ago, but I didn't want to discuss it until there was some change. He was unconscious until last night. Now he's awake, sitting up, and able to form words. There seems to be no paralysis as well.

Now, does this mean that the strip reflects my life? Granted, this happened a year and a half after Jim's stroke, but I've long suspected that when Kool-Aiders say this or that plot point happened to them at the same time, they're allowing a margin of up to three years either way.

He is on his second marriage. But he wasn't sitting in his chair waiting for prime rib when it happened. Actually, he was already in the hospital; they had to LifeFlight him to a different hospital. This happened shortly after surgery, and Cookie Monster is strongly convinced that it happened because of the surgery.
