I like this cartoon a lot for reasons I’m not entirely sure of. As pathetic as it is, the combination of two imaginary relationships with low enough self-esteem to invent them double-crossing you is funny to me. The ultimate defeatist.
There may also be an autobiographical element in this one. I caught my first wife cheating on me and it led to a divorce and the most difficult year of my life. In the midst of that storm the anguish seemed it would never end, but twelve years later, the episode has no more hold on me than the memory of a bad bout of flu. A valuable lesson learned.
