Garfield, you're not still mad at me for serving you that rubber pizza last night are you? Nah. And you're not planning some sinister revenge, are you` I'm bigger than that. Maybe I'm just paranoid.
1 February 1988
Look, Garfield! This is my first serious attempt at making gourmet food. "first humorous" attempt is more like it. I call it "chicken surprise". Somehow, I'm not surprised. Fresh from the oven. I know. I heard the microwave laughing.
2 February 1988
Forget it, Garfield. I'm planning to enjoy this ALONE. GULP! Now, you're alone.
3 February 1988
Come oin, scale. Can't you see I'm waiting for your verdict? I don't know if I have the heart to tell you this... You have a heart? You have a face?
4 February 1988
Get off! I can't breathe! Notify my next of kin! I WANT it to die. If I had eyes my life would be passing before them!
5 February 1988
Sit up, Odie. Sit up, boy! COME ON! SIT UP! Good luck, Jon. It took Odie three years to learn to breathe.
6 February 1988
7 February 1988
I hate february. But february starts out irritating, becomes boring and ends up depressing. February is the "monday" of months.
8 February 1988
I think I'll write a book! A book about a handsome, debonair cat who saved the world from alien invaders, ended war and solved world hunger. Nah. There are already too many autobiographies out there.
9 February 1988
The most important part of writing a book is picking a good title. I think I'll call mine "Nights Of Indiscretion". No, no. A writer must write something he knows about. That's it! I'll call it "Nights Of Indigestion".
10 February 1988
THAT'S IT! I have just come up with a cure for writer's cramp! Writer's block.
11 February 1988
Most kids love snow. Most kids love building forts and throwing snaowballs. Mine are out for world domination.
12 February 1988
If Oj'n not going to let us in, I say we break the door in! TAP It's tough building up a full head of steam in deep snow.
13 February 1988
Yes, Odie, I'd say that hook is fairly important. Z Z POOF CHOOM! ZOOM! I thought you were asleep! I was, my STOMACH wasn't.
14 February 1988
Garfield, you just had your morning nap. What are you doing back in bed? Taking your advice. You said, "never put off until tomorrow what you can do today". This is tomorrow morning's nap.
15 February 1988
Okay, I give. I was measuring the refrigerator for a pet door.
16 February 1988
It's fun finding familiar shapes in clouds. That one looks like Odie, same ears, same stupid expression... The same slobber.
17 February 1988
So, what's your problem, guys? We demand separate closets!
18 February 1988
Here I am again, pondering my existence. ...my relationship with the universe. ...my having eaten too much to move.
19 February 1988
I wish there were a sign to make you realize how fat you are, Garfield. RUMBLE RUMBLE And what does THAT tell you? That I shall be having my meals on the floor from now on.
20 February 1988
That's the last time I let you steer, Odie. Whee! I love snow. Yeah! As long as the neighbor kids don't spot us. SPLUT! SPLUT! Hey, cat! Give us the kitten and we'll let you live. NOT A CHANCE, YOU TURKEYS! IT'S ALL FOR ONE ANDONE FOR... all.
21 February 1988
CLICK! What is it, Garfield?! Is there a thief? Is the house on fire?! Worse! The light in the refrigerator is out!
22 February 1988
pant pant Odie drips so much maybe I should call a plumber! That's a figur eof speech, Garfield.
23 February 1988
drip drip drip drip drip drip drip SQUEAK -
24 February 1988
Garfield, I hope you're not thinking of climbing my curtains. I wouldn't dream of climbing your stupid curtains, Jon. But, to be the first cat ever to lead an expedition up the southwest face of Mt. Everest, that's another matter!
25 February 1988
Climber's log: 12,000 feet up Mt. Everest and the going is slow. At this altitude oxygen is scarce. The experienced climber knows he must rest often. Z Now I've seen everything.
26 February 1988
That's my pie, Garfield, so HANDS OFF! PLOOT nnngh!
27 February 1988
28 February 1988
You know, Garfield, maybe we should skip dessert tonight. SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP JON! SPEAK TO ME! YOU'RE DELIRIOUS, MAN! Thanks, I needed that.
