Just talked to a lady at the communal lounge place in my work building, where many people have lunch. I’ve seen her once before; she was very friendly, in that she actually said “hi” to me when I showed up. Today she introduced herself and shook my hand. I thought it might be an opportunity to make a new friend. Here’s someone extroverted enough to go out of her comfort zone and talk to a (welcoming) stranger unbidden, something I’ve sometimes longed to do.

Then came the God spiel.

I think a tiny part of me died just then. She had zero interest in me as a person. Instead of potentially connecting on a solid level, she just saw me as another notch in God’s “Saved” column. As someone who has a hard time making friends, I feel kinda shitty right now.

Did this&#8230;shit, over a week ago? and never posted it. My favorite chainsawsuitsmen, Mikey and Kris, were having a Calvin &amp; Hobbes-fueled discussion on Twitter due to Stripped, and&#8230;once I got the idea in my head, I just couldn&#8217;t not draw this. Apologies to Bill Watterson (naturally).

Today&#8217;s doodles and a quote from my &#8220;colorful&#8221; friend Terry from Third Coast Comics. I did the semi-John K-lookin&#8217; guy on the left most of all.

"These patio set pictures look the same. I just delete the second one right?"


"What are you talking about? Can’t you see the happy family, delighting in a twilight meal, marveling at the fireflies flitting their way through the summer breeze? How could you miss the bright smiles, the frosty, condensating beverages, the sidelong glance the little girl is giving her brother, knowing he came home the night before reeking of alcohol and another scent she couldn’t quite identify? You don’t see the veneer of pleasantry masking the deep gulf between the husband and wife as they brace for yet another season of disappointment and turmoil, just waiting out the time when they can finally snap their respective tethers and live, at long last, LIVE!??"

"What’s the frigging difference between all these stupid sets??"

"Well, as you can see, both have a rust-free aluminum dining table with a subtle, yet sophisticated touch. Both have sturdy, stackable chairs belying comfort and durability. Both have cotton/poly blend umbrellas to block out shade, while letting you enjoy the late summer’s warmth. Both whisper about you at night. Both sit silently in eternal judgment over your lack of spontaneous, fun-loving friends that drop by unannounced with a 12-pack and a Frisbee, bringing the promise of glowing memories that will last a lifetime. Both seethe with resentment at being under your care, chafing at months and months of being locked up in a frozen storage shed while winter rages balefully outside. Both will wait patiently until that sultry night your guard finally drops. Both will strike when you least expect it.

This one comes in brown.”

"And this set is also Antique Bronze."
"But it can’t be Antique Bronze. That last set was Antique Bronze, and it’s, like, dark green. This set is a rusty brown."
"And this set is also Antique Bronze."

This patio dining set is perfect for your next outdoor get-together. Every piece is finished with a hardened powder coat over the most durable, rust-free cast aluminum, for years of use and beauty. This set contains four swivel rockers with cushions in an antiqued bronze finish. They slowly rotate to face you. They’ve been waiting for you all this time. You’re late. You’re so very late.
