Funky Prediction

Assuming Tom Batiuk, like most of the rest of us, has had his fill of Dark Funky… Les calls Cindy, the only person he knows in New York. She helps him through the next few days, they become close, and eventually she decides that the life of a television reporter isn’t what she really wants from life — and that a life back in Ohio with Les might be (thus fulfilling the common writer fantasy of the high school nerd ending up with the high school beauty queen).

Les’s visit to the psychiatrist is taking place on the tenth anniversary of Lisa’s death and is occasioned not by any depression or life crisis, but because he wants “validation” for his desire to move on and ask Cindy to marry him. When the strip restarts, one of the first storylines involves 15-year-old Summer and step-mom Cindy learning to deal with one another. Les is happy, and it was Lisa’s quarter that brought him to Cindy and helped him resume his life.


  1. Which would work…except that Funky’s the one who showed up today.

    You know…

  2. I guess the Cindy thing could still happen… just not with the quarter-enabling.

    Also, there have to be better places in New York for Les to wait for Funky than at a bench in Central Park. The mall, perhaps. Or a McDonalds. A covered bus stop.

  3. A place that actually has an address he can direct Funky to.

  4. Actually, Central Park isn’t much of an address, but there are a number of places just outside of the park that do.

    Hell, even the lobby of that skid row hotel would be a preferable place to wait when it’s raining.
