Ignore the full moon.

March 26, 2010

I realize this drawing might be of questionable taste.  I’m hoping that by including the word “phase” into a joke about the moon, I might have lifted it to a higher level.

If not, I’m okay with that too.


Surprisingly average eyesight.

March 25, 2010

I wear contacts.  I wish I didn’t.  They take too much time to put in and take out again every day.  I would gladly wear glasses instead, but for one thing.

My ears.

As I said in an earlier post, my ears are over a quarter inch out of whack.  The disparity is much more obvious when I wear glasses.  So…

I don’t wear glasses.


Exercise routine in futility.

March 24, 2010

You may have noticed that I have only been posting one drawing a day instead of two.  With a new baby in the house my energy level and stamina feel like they are on par with the fellow in the picture above.  I’m hopeful she will develop some regular sleep patterns soon.

I think she can.  I think she can.  I think she can…


A black hat.

March 23, 2010

The “black hat” trend hold true in many situations.  Here are the ones I can think of:

  • Old west villains
  • 30’s era gangsters
  • Blood-thirsty pirates
  • The New York Yankees (Yes, technically they’re navy blue, but that’s close enough.)

I’ve known my wife since high school (although we were only friends until college).  At the time, Riverdance fever was sweeping the world.  I remember another friend and I made lots of jokes about Riverdance every time we saw it on the shelf at the movie rental place.

One day Riverdance was playing on PBS.  In some strange attempt to get to know me better, she decided to watch it.  The entire thing.  From beginning to end.

When she excitedly told me she had watched it, I had to tell her that I was only ever making fun of the cover.  I would certainly never watch it.  According to my wife childbirth and Riverdance are the two things in life I can never repay.


Tastes like chicken.

Another water color drawing means it must be Sunday again.  My birthday is coming very soon.  In our family, you get to choose dinner on your birthday.  I always choose the same thing… homemade fried chicken.


Rabbi sideburns and an unsympathetic ear.

March 20, 2010

Sideburns have always been troublesome for me.  I spent several years in college sporting sideburns of various sizes, but they almost always looked lopsided.  I could never get them straight and it hurt my young ego to think I was walking around with crooked sideburns.  I complained about it to my then-future-wife.  She looked me straight in the eyes and told me that my sideburns might look uneven, but they weren’t.

It was my ears that were crooked.

Sadly, this is not a joke.  Even worse, it was true.  My ears are more than a full quarter inch out of alignment. The fact that my face was lopsided was obviously a larger problem than any facial hair issues.  But I found a solution.  I got married.  Now it doesn’t matter what I look like.

Just so you know, that is my attempt at shading in the ear.  It is not wax.
