Here’s the original, 1964 version of today’s Last Kiss webcomic.
What’s going on here? Well…
Here’s a quick summary of the original romance story (and, no, I’m not making this up.)
Mike resigned because his supervisor Doris (the woman on the phone—who also happens to be his girlfriend) was just about to fire him.
Confused and angry, he quits. Doris wanted to fire him because Mike’s no good at his job and therefore miserable.
After Mike leaves, Doris calls and gets him a construction job—with his uncle’s firm. He thrives at the new job. So he goes back to Doris; spanks her for interfering; and they decide to get married—pronto!
