Misery Loves Babies

Hoo go from not having a life to having too much of one. Just a little filler comic spawned from frustration. Firstly I'd like to say that I am in no way child free. I would like my own kid someday and I do not tolerate rude euphemisms for people who choose to have kids, but I do believe that breeding should be a responsible choice, not a right.

That said, I wish I could say this is the first time this argument has come up, and I apologize if this is not "funny" I'm just angry and had to get it down on paper, as it were.

But you know, in general, I still find it pretty rude when you have a situation you're struggling with and someone tries to force their "so and so has it worse than you because of their shitty life choices, be grateful" comparison on you. Way to invalidate my legitimate concerns with hypothetical situations, dude.

To Kill A Mockingbird

Whew! It's been awhile. Sorry for the lack of updates. To have a slice of life comic you must first have a life to have slices of. Unfortunately it would seem that I do not.

My boyfriend is a huge bird nut. One of his favorite birds is the mockingbird. He finds them cute, plucky, and their song to be beautiful.

He's never had one perch outside his window and sing at all hours of the night, until recently.

We have a resident mockingbird who's decided to shout his "Hey Ladies!" song, starting at midnight and going all night. It's hot, so leaving the windows open to air things out means we get the full force of the song. We scared him out of the tree but he just keeps coming back. Hopefully tonight will be better.

As for my boyfriend, I wonder if he'll rethink his choice in feathered favorites.

*EDIT* Well, we scared the bird off at 11, he came back at 4 AM and sang all night. And great news! He's learned how to imitate the wild parrots that live in the area. AWK AWK SHRIEK SHRIEK SHRIEK!

I wonder if there are freelance falconers who will work for cheap.
