Bitter Water

Bitter water is pretty disgusting and it would be nice if it just identified itself like this but actually that'd be super creepy and I would have a much more drastic reaction that these chill stick figures.

B: Don't drink that water - it's bitter.
water: I'll never forgive.

Bitter Herbs

I forget which sermon inspired this one, but I found a series of bitter comics on a bulletin from a while ago. Only had a musical page of the bulletin, so I don't know when it's from otherwise I could look on my church's sermon list for the sermon of that day.

Bitter Herbs
Dandelion: I cannot believe what she did!
Yarrow: I won't forgive him.
Chamomile: You just wait!

Explaining Literature: Herman Melville

Wow, it's a long one. I have read excerpts in literature class, and never tackled the full one. Even the excerpts were long! But the movies were a normal length I believe. Moby Dick is not as terrifying as Monstro (from Pinocchio) - he's the scariest Disney villain in my memory.

Explain Herman Melville
I: Are you ready for a yarn that'll last you the rest of your life? Cause this is a long one.
B: Hi Ishmael!

Explaining Literature: Charles Dickens

This seems to be the plot of most of his books. Not that I've read a full one, other than the kid's version (lots of full-page pictures). But I've seen the Wishbone version of the major ones, and also some cartoon versions, ...

Explain Charles Dickens
B: Life can't get worse. But it will!

Explaining Literature: Jane Austin

The first in my literature series - I'll be honest and admit I've never read a novel of hers but I might have watched a movie adaptation. Some of my in-laws like watching the adaptations, but from listening in from another room (where strategy games are played) it seems that they all have the same plot - girl doesn't like boy, girl grows to like boy, and then they get married.

Explain Jane Austin
G: There's a man. I don't love him. But I do!

Going Colorblind

I can imagine this conversation going down between my husband and I in the future. I mean, most of his brothers are colorblind, so it's a logical conclusion?
Also, a very Happy early Birthday to my grandma!

L: You have some blonde hairs in your beard.
M: Yeah, I don't think they're blonde...
L: What??? Are you going -
M: Yeah
L: Colorblind?!?
M: ... Nope.
