Olive and Pimento


A pimento is a type of pepper that is used for a variety of things but specifically it's the red thing stuffed into green olives. I'm not sure why some foods are considered name-worthy but others aren't.
We were watching a show called Manifest but stopped because we realized we didn't like any of the characters on the show. One of the characters is named Olive and her twin brother is called Cal and I don't know his full name but I've decided it's Kalamata (which is a type of olive).

Hill and Dale


For some reason, my siblings don't appreciate my name suggestions for their kids. I feel like these kids would be great at hide and seek - you'd be searching everywhere to find them.

Stewart and Stewartess


On a similar theme, maybe don't name your kids too similarly - people will never get their names straight and won't even try because they have an excuse ("I just can't keep them straight"). I remember there's an old Disney channel movie about motocross and the twins are named Andrew and Andrea but both go by Andy.

Wearing Multiple Hats


I thought this one up during a meeting as well. You know there are so many kinds of hats out there, but it's hard to think of ones to draw when you need to make a stack of them. Yes, he's holding the Fantasia hat and a fez.

B: You are so good at wearing hats - here are two more for you!

Beating a Dead Horse


I sketched this one during a meeting (it was a virtual meeting so they couldn't see me doodling). Sometimes (haha, all the time) communication is hard and we keep trying to get a point across but it's not landing and it's just painful.
And yes, that's a Princess Bride reference - such a quotable movie.

A: Are we done here?
B: No, it's only mostly dead.

Also, Happy Birthday to my eldest sister!!!

Guest Comic: Shortness


This comic is by my nine-year-old nephew - it's a rather good one on perspective. He told me he's drawn it before, so maybe he'll keep making comics, then start a comic blog some day and I can draw a guest comic for him!

Tiny person: I'm short.
Average person: So am I!
