When my nephew David was a little kid, we were trying to encourage him to say “please” when he asked us for something.  He was asking us nicer than Mio is here, but still omitting the pleasantry at the end.  After numerous reminders from us, in utter exasperation, he came up with those classic, immortal words, “It’s like I have to pay you!”

I tucked them away, not only because they were hilarious, but because I knew that one day, when the time was right, I’d use them in a strip.  Only took me about 10 years, but they were worth the wait. 🙂
