Comic: Bad Hair Day Joke
I’ve been aiming for a kind of universality in my comics.
Y’know… parenting moments that are relate-able.
Quirks you can empathize with or see yourself projected into.
Did you get a hair cut?
No….
I got them ALL cut.
This week is a little less so perhaps, and is brought to you exclusively from the mind of The Girl, who upon “outsmarting” her Dad in real life, thwarting his tried-and-true dad joke material said (in what could be the fifth frame of this comic) “you should draw a comic about this”.
So I did.

This is Dance Practice (Part 2)
I appreciate the effort, I really do.
Dance is art.
Dance is fitness.
Dance is moving around a room in a way that my 40-year-old body no longer considers feasible.
Yet I struggle to find an honest balance between (a) showing blind support for everything The Girl does and (b) handing her a healthy dose of parental distance to assist her in finding the intrinsic value of doing a thing for its own sake.
No, really.
That's a thing, I'm sure of it.

This is Dance Practice (Part 1)
You reach a point in this parenting gig where the extra-curricular activities are as much for you as they are for them.
I mean, sure, they’re learning new skills, belonging to a social club, being active, having fun, and all of it on your dime.
But on the other hand, you get an hour to yourself to
veg out
salad
A state of meditation involving eye and finger contact with a glass screen.
on your phone while you wait to drive them back home.
So… win-win.
