Thanks for all your wonderful haikus last week. Your comments and haiku always make me smile. I can easily see how much traffic the site gets, but having a bit of interaction with the readers is way more rewarding and encourages me to keep it up.
This week’s strip came about as I was recalling how growing up we were told that saying, ‘Bless You’, when someone sneezed was not only polite but like necessary or something, because when you sneezed your heart stops for a moment. It’s complete rubbish, of course. Your heart doesn’t stop and sadly your eyes wont pop out if you manage to sneeze with your eyes open.
I was also pondering how someone in a super good mood can irk people. All that glowing happiness is toxic to someone hell bent on being miserable.
Another thing on my mind was how much I can’t stand being told to smile by complete strangers. It’s happened my whole life and it’s always guys that say it. I don’t know who walks around with a giant smile plastered on their faces, but apparently guys want me to. I think that would be rather creepy to be honest. Funny thing is I can be in a perfectly wonderful mood and some random jackass will tell me to smile and then I want to kill things. So, if you are one of those people that think it’s cute, quit it. It’s annoying.
Have a great week. I’ll see you on Wednesday.
