As a reader pointed out today, today's cartoon was a bit of spin / repeat from a previous toon. Like I said in the comments on the site I do this for a number of reasons. The primary reason being: I'm old(er) and I forget things. I've written well over 2,000 Working Daze gags over the years and I don't remember all of them. Heck, I don't remember the ones I wrote last month.
I do keep all the cartoons in one file so I can search and stuff but if I don't vaguely remember doing a toon in the past I don't search for it. Like I said on the site, Scott has returned gags to me because as he says, "ah John we just did this last week."
Today's life as a freelancer means you have to juggle many jobs at once so sometimes my memory with Working Daze isn't as good as it could be. I apologize. Scott and I do try to give you a pretty good product on a regular basis. Believe me it is more of a labor of love for us than a money making endeavor.
Today's cartoon though was a repeat more because I like the theme. We get new readers all the time and there are certain aspects of each character personality I like to repeat. I feel it's important for new readers to see these and I hope it reinforces these personality traits to more established readers.
Plus I don't think it's a bad idea to repeat some of our better material from time to time.
