This was the first of the vacations, and what I felt was a very fun tradition. I used to keep stacks of National Geographics around and page through, pondering where they’d go next. But this article on the tepuis of Venezuela was truly breathtaking, and it was fun to put it in the strip.
I had put some thought into where he may have parked the plane after their original flight, but fortunately I stopped thinking and left it exactly where he had landed it.
I always found this strip interesting, because although there’s only one spoken word in the whole thing “AAAAHH!” (not counting Blake’s sleep mumblings), the strip really takes a lot of time to fully read, because each activity and expression plays a role in the strip.
I have VERY few pet peeves (I’m rather easy-going). But ONE of them is people driving who have scraped barely a large-pizza sized hole through the ice to their windshield. I don’t like it when I’m in their car, because I feel endangered, and I don’t like it when I’m not in their car, because I feel endangered.
That said, I did it once or twice when i was young. I get it. And I also feel lucky to have learned before anyone was hurt.
I am always amazed at how much little tragedies plague people. But I also get it, some days when I’m at wit’s end, they plague me too. But even when it’s plaguing me, I still find it funny.
