It’s a heavy block that is used for training lifeguards… would hurt if it did actually drop on your toe.
Another thing about when I’m writing…. I get really close to the paper. Not on purpose. When I start writing or drawing, I’ll be a normal length away. I gradually lean closer and closer to the table, until my left ear is inches away from it’s surface. Then I’ll notice that my eyes are on the same level as the pen (I use gel pens for all writing and quite a bit of drawing) or pencil (mostly mechanical, some drawing), and sit up. This repeats in cycles of perhaps 10 minutes long for as long as I’m making marks on paper.
It’s awkward to hurt someone when you didn’t mean to…. title explanation is that the comic is about both of our reflexes (and there’s two of us…).
The object of Megan’s attempted snatching is my current all-prupose notebook, open to my pen-doodles (no erasing!) of characters from the hilarious mangas Ranma 1/2 (http://www.mangapanda.com/ranma-12) and Nisekoi (http://www.mangapanda.com/nisekoi).
There does not seem to be an official protocol for taking selfies ... however, I have a major recommendation. DO NOT stick out your tongue until you are finished chewing and swallowing. Very important. :D

My family’s house has steep stairs, which I always take skipping over one. It’s faster, but unfortunately it is such a habit that when I’m somewhere else with shallow steps, doing one at a time (acting mature!), it causes me to trip. Sometimes so much that it makes me look like I have the coordination of a crab with an emu brain implant (I’m guessing that wouldn’t be excessively graceful). Yay…
The actual bookcase:
I love my books! :D
In addition to personally partaking of a meal I brought over to give to them (not sure about the etiquette of that???), I observed Obadiah (who, according to my brother Ryan, was “three-teen :D ” before his birthday) swinging, uh, well, being in a toddler swing (one of these things ⬇︎ ) .
Which brings me to a very disturbing question: Why on earth do those things have 4 leg holes? Even little kids have two legs, like the rest of us humans. Were they originally intended for small dogs instead of small children? Or perhaps it is a space-saving measure, stick your twins (if you don’t have any, you could borrow a neighbor’s kid of about the same size as your’s…) in it, one in each side. There is an obvious front and back, however, one of the kids would be in a better place. So toddler swings were either created by:
People who liked to torture small dogs (or other 4-legged creatures).
People who had twins, were partial to one, and showed it in their inventions.
Which do you think? (my poll creator isn’t working) Or if perhaps you have a theory of your own, I’d love to hear it!
In this comic I am riding my friend Jessica’s horse Spice with her (sort of. It could also have been called ‘Chant “I really hope I don’t fall off” over and over in head’ (but it was fun)).
That day I was given this very flattering portrait! ↯ Spitting image, huh? :)
Another (but more disturbing) thing I got was a paper airplane death threat reading “Deth at 6:00 be ther” ….
