The author writes:

One of my favorite ideas for a SRoMG comic is #127. The idea of a whole Sunday strip in three panels is widely explored, but the idea of a whole week in one Sunday strip is far less explored. It's the right number of panels, even, if you borrow the title panel from the Sunday strip.

To challenge myself, I picked a random week with a Sunday strip I thought I could simplify to one panel. It was a bit harder than I expected - I imagine this format works best with the later strips as the punchlines simplify.
