What Kids Want

This week’s Dustinland comic was originally going to be about the last two panels — just about how annoying kids can be about sharing and wanting and fighting and grabbing and crying. Man, two of them together, it’s just impossible. It’s like they are trying to be as irrational and impossible as they can. Add more kids, it only gets exponentially worse.

But you know, I started thinking about it and decided to expand from that single subject to the broader frustrations around kids and wanting. They’re always wanting something, except of course when you want them to want something. Then they don’t want it. That’s the game. You can’t even do reverse psychology — too dangerous. They might believe you and it would wind up reinforcing what you don’t want them to do.

Oh well, at least mine seems to get sarcasm, which is surprisingly effective at times.
