Don’t get me wrong, I happen to love what I do, but I believe that everyone needs a day or two out of the year to just … sit around and junk? My wardrobe of choice when I’m doing a whole lot of nothing is my ninja turtles t-shirt because I know I probably won’t be seen out in public by anyone. Although sometimes I do forget to draw the blinds when I’m pretending to fight the Shredder.
And around 9 a.m. it starts to dawn on Olive that I’m not going anywhere that day and this wave of manic energy starts to wash over her. She runs up the stairs, up and down the hallway and then tops it off by tackling Hazel. It’s cool that she gets excited like that, but I always have to explain to her that Hazel is not a thing that you punch/kick when you feel the spirit moving through you.
Hazel hates when I play video games. It’s all kinds of valuable petting time down the drain. Sometimes I feel like I’m in school again and I have homework that I’m neglecting in favor of fighting off an alien invasion or patrolling the streets as a superhero. Except the homework is petting a small, furry animal which is much easier than the maths, but sometimes I still don’t want to do it.
As a side note, my system of choice was the PS3 at the time this comic was created, but now it’s the PS4 because yay technology.
