I can’t help noticing, in strips like these, Is how the limitations of strip time and strip continuity come back to bite you. Since a strip only allows you what is on average five minutes of time a day, time does weird things and there’s only so much you can do about it. As far as the strip is concerned the last time Paul and Nancy spoke was Halloween 2008, the last time they went out together was a year before that watching the final game of the World Series. Heck one year I was almost relieved that I wouldn’t be able to do a Valentine’s Day story line because as far as continuity was concerned it would mean that Valentine’s day had happened twice in one month. As time goes by you learn to imply that time is passing and that there are things going on off camera, but the problem still comes up as a stumbling block more times then I’d like.
