Ah glorious summer day, when all you want to do is go outside and snooze in the sun… you hear me Seattle? Glorious summer day!
I drew it on a sunny day, but clearly it must be overcast when I post it. On the plus side my garden won’t need watering. I have the second crop of rocket coming up and tender leafed lettuce at the awkward teenager stage. We live in an apartment, but have a large enough balcony that we haven’t bought salad for a month!
Stuffed toy BuNSOn Hoppydew, a beloved mascot of Roller Derby Officiating is looking at an iPad that has a drawing of yesterday’s comic on it, Real Things Head Boop Bunnies.
Roller Derby Side-note
BuNSOn Hoppydew (the NSO in his stuffed toy form is capitalized to represent NSOs, Non Skating Officials) is very proud to be a roller derby mascot and has travelled the world in this capacity. Non Skating Officials are the folks who keep track of penalties, use stop watches a lot and sort of act as the long term memory of the Referees who zoom about on rollerskates and don’t have a lot of time to write things down.
Nine months before A Sad came to be on February 18, 2014 the Things were already exploring having “a sad” and how to provide comfort. With the right person and the right vibe, a bit of booping comfort can be quite nice.
And here’s some more. I like head boops.
Thing 1: I have a sad Thing 2: Can I help?
Thing 1 just stares into space, looking sad.
Thing 2 boops their head onto Thing 1’s chest. SFX: Boop!
Thing 1 looks up and smiles a little. Thing 2 keeps their head in place.
