We’re day 6 in the federal government’s request that we self-isolate. Have you killed anyone yet? I’m fortunate in that I live alone because I am a loner and people piss me off when they’re doing normal things, like breathing.
I moved into my apartment three weeks ago and it’s the first time in about 20 years that I’ve lived alone if you don’t count a couple months between roommates after I was laid off in 2012. I gotta say, I couldn’t have better timing.
But one thing that’s really cool is that I’ve had several friends call and check up on me. That makes me feel good because if I die alone, then maybe my body will be found within a few days.
I hope we get back to normal, or something that resembles it. I hope businesses open again soon. I hope businesses will start rehiring the people they laid off. I hope we can greet fellow human beings in a normal fashion. I’m looking forward to talking to someone and being closer than six feet. I don’t care what your politics are, I want you to come through this OK, even if you’re a Trump-supporting asshole.
Take care of yourself and those around you. And if you go a few days without seeing a cartoon from me, please send somebody to come look for my body.
This pandemic is hitting everyone, including your favorite goofy cartoonist. I have lost clients and I’m afraid I might lose more. The PayPal button has always been included here for those who can and want to voluntarily support what I do. I understand this time is hard on everyone. If you can’t, don’t contribute. Take care of yourself and your family first.
But, all and any help is greatly appreciated and it helps keep me going. Think of me like a street performing busking out tunes on a corner (I won’t play “Wonderwall.” I promise). If you like the tune, or in this case, toon, throw a buck into the tip jar. It’ll help me play another song, draw another toon, write another blog, make another video, and post another snarky post on social media. It’ll help keep me alive. You can also order a signed print for $40. And if you don’t like the PayPal option, you can snail mail it to my P.O. Box.
Watch me draw.
