My fiancée helped me come up with the idea for this one. She’s started doing her graded interviews for med school, and yes, I’ve had to pretend to be a girl once or twice. An odd and uncomfortable experience.
After all, it’s hard to get into the role convincingly without a little background. And if you try too hard to develop that background, it starts getting weird.
And it’s not just about pretending to be a girl, either. It’s difficult for me to pretend to be something I’m not, in any respect. I know I can help Lisa practice for interviews the most if I come up with a variety of different symptoms, but that’s not as easy to do as one would think. Most of the time I tend to exaggerate existing problems (headaches, cold feet, a cold, etc.) that I probably wouldn’t be seeing a doctor about.
Hey, I’ve actually managed to get a comic done two weeks in a row. Hopefully this becomes a habit.
