I decided to ret-con these characters by adding some glasses and sunglasses because I think they’ll surely make a return to the strip later on. It was a lot of fun hearing him talk about dealing with the bagel clerks at the place in San Diego because it’s precisely the sort of thing that I would be thinking if I were in the same situation. He’s a lot more New Yorker than I am because of the “Don’t ask me any questions” bit of direct honesty. I laugh just thinking of what the bagel person must’ve looked like during this entire exchange.
