I went to Garden yesterday and got to see several of my friends. I tend to talk a lot in a social situation, and unintentionally dominate conversations even more now than I used to. I usually don’t realize it until much later. My friends always listen attentively to me, and I almost always end up talking about this comic at great length. I’m sure I must repeat stories sometimes, but they always tolerate it.
I’m sure that the cast of Between Failures seems far too intelligent to some people, but it does come from the way I’ve experienced life. For whatever reason, I always seem to end up working with exceptional people. Extremely witty, intelligent, funny people. Many of them become, and remain, my friends.
The reason I lasted in retail as long as I did is from looking forward to seeing my friends every day. I still hope that someday we’ll all get to work together again, on some amazing idea one of us dreams up.
