Injustice – Comic Strip #23

Injustice

Little did I know, when Faith skipped into the room and picked up her little, green Xbox One controller, specifically designed for tiny kid hands, that I was about to be reduced to ash.

Six hours of Injustice 2 and all I got was this sore thumb and bruised ego.

On the bright side, I’m looking forward to unleashing Faith, aka The Kraken, upon the online community and watching her destroy seasoned fighting game veterans.

Misery loves company.

Social Anxiety – Comic Strip #22

Social Anxiety

Social Anxiety

One of my biggest fears these days is running into someone I know in public. I fully realize it’s not a rational fear, but then neither are my fears of spiders and sharks. As a matter of fact, if you consider that I almost never go in the water, and even at 5’1 I tower over the average household arachnid, my social anxiety might actually be one of my more rational fears.

Seriously though, I often dread leaving the house. The thought of having to engage in unsolicited small talk makes my skin crawl. It’s not that I can’t socialize, or even that I’m bad at it, it’s just so… draining.

I realized just how bad my anxiety had gotten when, after visiting with some friends during a recent vacation, twelve-year-old Faith turned to me with a look of awe and said, “Wow, dad. You were so friendly. I was, like, ‘Who are you and what have you done with my dad?'”

The Thrift Sale Cycle – Comic Strip #20

The Thrift Sale Cycle

The Thrift Sale Cycle

A few years back, I wrote a letter to my younger self and included this snippet:

You will eventually buy your first house. You should be prepared to build an addition for all the crap your mother-in-law is going to find for you at yard sales. She’s like a Thrift Sale Terminator and trying to override her primary directive is a pointless endeavor.

To be fair, it’s been awhile since the Thrift Sale Terminator struck, but the carnage remains. If anyone is in the market for an army of stuffed animals or 50 copies of the Pajama Sam computer games, I can hook you up.
