Every time I do a comic with any kind of breaking up theme, people ask me “Oh no dude, did you break up with your wife.” So let me just start by saying that no, this week’s Dustinland is not about me breaking up with my wife. We are quite happy. I did however find an old notebook full of unused comic ideas and this one was in there, clearly let over from my days living the single life, dating and what not.
In terms of the comic’s subject matter, well, it’s not that cut and dry obviously. Sometimes people get dumped and it just ruins them completely, so in that case, it’s probably worse to be on the receiving end. But think about it in terms of the average long term outlook. If you get dumped, you eventually get over it and move on with your life, find someone else, and then just kinda look back at that relationship as just another part of your life. If you dump someone, there is that possibility that you will wind up regretting it for the rest of your life. But nobody ever really looks back and says, “Hey I really regret getting ruthlessly dumped. Boy, I blew it that time.” You know, because it’s not your fault.
Okay, I don’t know what I’m talking about. Ignore all the above.
One thing I can tell you for sure is that I played pitch and putt golf this weekend and saw four deer. Maybe I should have done a comic about that.
