It's the last day before the wedding. It's also my niece Carrie's thirty-fourth birthday. Let's see what kind of crappy gift Lynn gives her. It's bound to be worse than the one I got.

Panel 1: Elly greets Phil by telling him she thought he was going to be late. He says it was a close call.

Panel 2: She asks how Jim is and Phil says he's not great but he'll pull through. I doubt that myself but realize that, as far as these two idiots are concerned, his heart attack was like the Tree of Mild Inconvenience: an obstacle that looked like it would threaten something but turned out to be inconsequential.

Panel 3: He then comments on how nice everything looks which tells me he's both colorblind and insane. He then asks how Liz is. Elly responds "nervous, giddy, tired..." because she can't say "hopping-ass nuts" in a family strip.

Panel 4: Elly wishes Jim could be here. Phil, anticipating a scenario in which Jim's ghost looks on from Foob Heaven in approval, says he'll be there in spirit.

Panel 5: Elly, picking up on that, tells Beardo he said Jim would survive.

Summary: Let the festivities commence. Let's hope that Weed documents everything so that Jim can see it. Let's also hope that these sick bastards die slowly and painfully very soon.

Prediction: The vows will take up tomorrow AND Sunday's strips.
