The first comic is based on a conversation I had with a friend. It’s a good thing the seasons are seasonal. I love each season for different reasons, but there are also things I don’t miss when they decide to change.
The second comic is an idea that’s been sitting in my notebook for a while. Ralph went to the doctor’s office, but you can get a free privilege consultation just about anywhere online. I’m all for having some perspective, but oftentimes “privilege” is used as a means to shut someone up, which is something I don’t ever like.
It’s starting to get to that point in the summer where we’re reaching for the thermostat. I’m a fan of using as little power as possible and sweating it out for a cheap energy bill, but my fiancée isn’t. The third comic is based on a joke that I saw somewhere online (including Hobbits also has to do with my re-reading Lord of the Rings), but the thermostat struggle is real.
I’ve recently discovered the GoComics app, and I love it. Lately I’ve only been able to read comic strips in the newspaper when I visit my parents’ place, but this app lets me read almost everything I get in the paper at home (and then some), daily, right on my phone. I can also swipe backwards and see comics that I missed, so I’ll never be out of the loop again when my mom wants to discuss Luann.
