I realized today that I forgot Thanksgiving was tomorrow, but I’ve been anticipating Black Friday for a month now because my job and various retail outlets are hyping it up so much. At a certain point Black Friday will swallow Thanksgiving and it will become the dominant holiday.
Once upon a time “holiday season” meant family, fun, relaxation, etc. Now it just means an excruciatingly high-anxiety couple of months at my work place.
It’s going to take a lot of turkey, stuffing, and macaroni & cheese to compensate for this level of stress, but I’m up to the challenge.
I feel like Monday’s strip really bombed. I felt bad, and so as punishment I’m giving you another bad one. Take that, people that are wonderful enough to give me your attention and time! DO YOU SEE? THIS IS WHAT YOU GET!
Side note: I have a Twitter account where I post comic updates and occasionally try to be funny. It’s over in the sidebar, or if you’re looking at this through your Tumblr goggles, I’m @EIEcomics
