You Can Always Count on the Flash

I had weekend work today. I got the day shift portion (which is insanely early, who is up at that hour?) Now, as a certifiable night-shift-owl, it's unnatural for me to sleep during the hours of darkness. So, in preparation for this shift, I obtained maybe an hour of rest. We had a light day planned, maybe an hour or two of inspections for Monday's flight. But apparently my regular shift can't get along without me so they left us with a bunch of jets that couldn't fly. I was out there thirteen hours today. Everytime we fixed one problem, another developed. I have to fix three new problems tomorrow morning.

Frustrating, I tell you.

So, in desperate need of relaxation, I turned to my Golden Age Flash Archives, which I haven't touched for a year. I haven't had a chance to read through Volume 2, so I figured I'd do a little glancing around for fun innuendo.

I opened to a random page.

This is what I saw:

I am a childish woman. I couldn't help but chuckle at the first line.

Then I moved on, to the very next panel:

Life is Good.


  1. The Golden Age Flash knows what you want and how you like it even better than you yourself do.

  2. Being a superhero is a stressful job, and sometimes you just need to releive that stress. Besides, he wasn't always married to Joan.

  3. Jay, I wish I knew how to quit you.

    Poor Joan. When he said a quickie, he wasn't kidding.
