Today was a non coffee day for me, although not as bad as the one pictured in this week’s Dustinland comic. I don’t know – why is it that everything fun is somehow bad for you. I wish I could just drink a ton of coffee and get amped up every day, drink a few beers or some whiskey to wind down at night, then pop a Benadryl and sleep like a baby every night. But I can’t do that because that would be unhealthy and all addicty. And then it would stop being fun because it would become a routine. Blah blah blah no fun. I guess when you abstain from things it makes it more fun when you give in. Good times.
I didn’t have much time to draw this week’s Dustinland comic, which is why I drew a comic about not having much time—although drawing this comic may have taken me more time than a regular comic would have anyway. But I didn’t have any brain power left. That’s another thing that comes along with lack of time. Lack of mind. You just hit a wall sometimes. There’s only so much you have left after work and parenthood. Sometimes you just want a beer and a Netflix.
But yeah, the whole AKA Why I Don’t Work Out part of this comic is a bummer. When could I exercise? Basically if you’re not one of those 5:00 AM types, forget it. And that’s not me. And even if it was, you have to go to sleep earlier, so really it’s a trade off, staying in shape vs not hanging out with my wife or ever doing anything I want to do for myself.
Yes, I know, it’s all very first world problems, but so is 95% of what all comedians talk about, so yeah, bite me.

I guess the father son relationship I point out in this week’s Dustinland comic is pretty common. I tease and annoy him, and in return, he busts my balls. I just don’t enjoy being called a little girl in public, although sometimes it’s so funny, even I start laughing. And you know who really loves it? My wife. She thinks it’s HYSTERICAL.
Man, dads just never win. At least we get the big piece of chicken.
