What’s In A Name

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about when people get your name wrong. I used to just get Justin instead of Dustin, but these days, it has gotten weirder.

So…  anyone ever really mangle your name?

The Awful Tooth

I don’t stand by the words of my six-year-old featured in this week’s new Dustinland comic, but they were pretty funny. One of those instances where the kid says something wrong and you have to hold in the laughter because you don’t want to encourage naughty behavior. Actually, I just made that up. I wasn’t even there — he said it to my wife. But it is totally that kind of line.

In related news, it must be impossible to make an original tooth/truth pun. They must all be done, simply in the dentist merchandising arena alone. Ain’t that the tooth.

Coffee High

This new Dustinland comic is about coffee and how much I love those rare moments when I am super coffeed up and not just full of energy, but full of ideas. Even if those ideas wind up sucking, man, it feels good in the moment. There was a time when I barely drank coffee, and back then, WOW, it was a guarantee that when I did drink it, I’d be running up the walls. It used to be a thing. You can ask peeps. But now I drink about a cup a day, maybe two, and it usually just gets me up and ready for the day. But sometimes, for whatever reason, it hits me extra hard, and man, that is the best. I just love it when it feels like a chiseled military hamster is running around my skull, ferociously and optimistically getting things done. And I bet no one ever wrote that sentence before.
