My life as a cartoon.

Last night I was calmly standing on line to buy embarrassing things -- which, btw, is why I was using the SELF-checkout: so no one has to see me holding a tub of feminine products -- when the evening got exponentially more mortifying. (BTW, who names the drugstore products that are so embarrassing you can't even buy them? HERPECIN, VAGISIL, LiceX, and ANUSOL?? I have always wondered how those board meetings go.)

Anyway, so what is more awesome than spending your Friday night in a drugstore buying feminine supplies?


I was scanning my items when I heard this distant mumbling and realized oh that's my PHONE.... and then I realized I had butt-dialed him. FUCK! We're not supposed to be talking!

I hung up immediately and texted an explanation so I could interrupt him having sex* to explain haha, isn't life funny, I am really not stalking you -- that whole thing where you just heard me scanning a box of extra large overnight pads with wings, that was unintentional, really. Pinky-swear!


*yes, he was having sex, I am sure of it, because once partners become exes, their lives become one big giant orgy where not only are you not invited, but it is a well-known scientific fact that the need for sleeping, eating or working is replaced with the need for sex with people who are not you.


  1. The above asterisk is the most truthful truth ever truthed in the world.

  2. Funny, I remember certain cashiers at a certain local supermarket that would intentionally scream out price checks on embarrassing products.

    Always Love to see your comics, sorry for the unfortunate circumstances.

  3. I now have a better idea of the pain you were in due to my stomach pain from laughing at the post.

    Um...I'm laughing with you?

  4. That asterisk is hilarious because it is so true. Have you seen High Fidelity? If not, you must. There's a scene in that where John Cusack imagines his ex with her obnoxious new boyfriend: "You are as abandoned and noisy as any character in a porn film, Laura. You are Ian's plaything, responding to his touch with shrieks of orgasmic delight. No woman in the history of the world is having better sex than the sex you are having with Ian... in my head."

    Ahh. It's funny because it's painful.

  5. Haha! I haven't seen that but now I must. You also just reminded me of the scene in Office Space where the star imagines his BOSS having sex with Jennifer Aniston, his GF. It's here, about 42 seconds in:

  6. Yes! I know Office Space very well. Very similar. Here's the High Fidelity one:

    Those are two of my favorite movies.
