Someone was riding the teen drama express and forgot to get off at his stop. It was me.
I got up this morning hurt. Apparently I pulled something in my back and I ended up “sleeping” on the floor. In spite of this I got up with a plan in mind to make sure everything was prepared for tonight’s comic post. Then everything kind of fell apart. I didn’t even put the long completed page in the cue. At some point I laid back down just so I could feel a little rested before taking the Teen to therapy, got back up to set up the post aaaaaaaaaand didn’t do it again. Had to get right out the door because I got sidetracked. Did therapy, got water for the week (because our tap water is toxic) then took the Teen to the store. Got dinner, watched TV with the Teen, and by that point I no longer had any idea what day it was. I was blissfully unaware of everything I needed to do. I read emails, DREW PART OF A PAGE, and it never occurred to me that I needed to actually post the comic. Then the Teen found me and explained what she had clearly been on the verge of tears over before I left her room earlier. At that point all hope was lost for posting on time. I was on the train bound for dramatown.
I didn’t realize I needed to post anything until I finally looked at my phone and saw that it was Friday.
Honestly, if I don’t post at exactly 12 eastern don’t feel afraid to tweet at me or something. There was a time when someone always did if I wasn’t spot on with a post. It’s not like I don’t have the pages ready in advance, I just don’t like to leave the posting to the machine.
Anyway, I know that posting anytime on Friday would be considered “on time” for most cartoonists, but I don’t want to be that way. I’d like to hold myself to a higher standard in spite of all the changes that have gone on in my life. So I apologize for my mistake. I will try not to let it happen again.
