Whereas I typically make comics with easily identifiable characters, the names and faces in this comic have been altered and obscured to protect the identities of the parties involved. I will tell you this: it was a real conversation, a real comment, and I literally said right after, “oh man I’m totally making that into a comic!”
So, switching phones has had some unforeseen consequences.
1) I no longer know how to draw my phone in the comic… iphones are easy to draw identifiably, android phones are not.
2) my screen is actually big enough for me to want to use it for games. …where has all my free time gone?
3) I’m repairing my damaged reputation of “Rob never responds to anything”, because my phone is loud enough for me to hear the ringer!
Everyone, have a great week! Try and pay attention to your dog, if you have one. If you don’t, you probably have really high scores on all your favourite videogames! good job.
It occurs to me that this comic may be a good metaphor for how finding contentment in life may look to others who are discontent. You should know, for your own sanity, that when i drive up steep hills on my scooter, i move over to the shoulder and let others pass me. I do enjoy getting swept up in the moment of driving exactly 55 kmph, my scooter is a 2004 honda ruckus, and that was deemed “Fast enough” in 2004 i guess. New ruckus’ go up to 65, and yamaha speed-restricted scooters go up to 70, but whatever. Sometimes, speed is more of a feeling and less of a number. …unless you’re going up a steep hill. Then speed is something i don’t really like to talk about.
I always wondered why a guy couldn’t go to a different restaurant every night and get free birthday cake. Is there an inter-restaurant database? NOPE. Do they make you show ID? that’d be a little class-less, no?
There is no more heinous a crime than pretending it is your birthday to get free cake. period. A person who does that has no humanity left in them; they are only an empty shell where humanity once was.
NOW, that being said, i’m sure if there is ever a day to try it, it’s on valentines day! ESPECIALLY if you go to a restaurant alone. The pity points for being alone on valentines day AND your birthday will likely get you TWO free cakes. So there you have my Con-pointers for the week.
