The Broken Windshield Wiper

with 6 comments

021-BrokenWiper

Us Abbamondi folk…we’re like everyday MacGyvers I tell you. I actually first suggested using the string on an extra air freshener in my car so I’m not totally perfect as a resourceful secret agent, but I promise I’m working on it.

Anyways, after the car problems were finished up, all of us went out to eat at Carino’s Italian Restaurant. We nom nomed, we caught up, and afterwards we all went our separate ways (well, not me–I stayed in my apartment for the evening). It was a very nice visit, all-in-all, and hopefully I’ll get down to South Jersey some time in September/October…

Give me all your stuff
Until I can’t get up
Watch the whole world freeze
Counting tin cans in our sleep
Submarines are diving deep
And don’t believe in me

Rain’s a Pain, Snow’s for Hoes

Oh, that Momma Dukes! Weeks later, when I told her I’d be drawing a comic about this little conversation nugget, she had no recollection of ever saying it. Hmm. Someone needs to eat more blueberries. Or play Brain Age.

Question of the day: Would you rather be caught in the rain or buried in the snow?

It’s gonna take a lot of time
Before I can cross that finish line
And when I can’t take the fall
I really wanna make that call

Cleaning the Gutters is Fun for the Whole Family

I’m officially now an expert on the taste of wet pine needles, old leaves, and brown clumps of glob. Thankfully, sometime later, we all had a yummy Thanksgiving dinner, my first since I’ve fallen off the bandwagon and now eat meat like the rest of you animals. The turkey (dark) meat was quite good, but nothing beats Momma Duke’s lumpless mashed potatoes. Her earlier mocking laughter as a shower of crap rained on my head is forgiven for it alone.

Woke up with a bang
And a bug on your face
It crawled in your mouth
And gave you a taste
Of the good life you left behind
But I think you’re gonna be fine

My Cell Phone Ringtone Scares Me Like Woah

2008-11-19

Trust me. You don’t want to hear my phone’s ring. It brings weathered warriors to their knees, it summons Godzilla, it sucks all the happiness from a room. Um, it also causes my hand to jump and send a line of ink shooting across my paper. Me thinks me needs to keep it on vibrate when I’m drawing from now on…

Now I think I’m going down to the well tonight
And I’m going to drink till I get my fill
And I hope when I get old
I don’t sit around thinking about it
But I probably will

Momma Dukes Takes My Picture

Don’t hate, she’s still getting the hang of this…technology thing. Did you know they say “whiskey” in Latin American countries and “potato” in Spain when it comes to picture-taking? No? Well, now you do.

Now if she does it like this
Will you do it like that?

Kissing Goodbye Before the Entire World

with 5 comments

2008-10-25

Despite the irony that my initials spell out PDA, I’ve never been one to really smooch in front of family…or more pertinently, in front of the smoochie’s family. I’m such a dorkasaur that I even asked Tara beforehand if it’d be okay to kiss her goodbye, and still, the nervousness came. Oh well. We smooched, the world didn’t burn us to the ground, and as I turned to leave her embrace I tripped over a pot cemented to the ground.

Goooooooooooooo me!

Conceptual paths wide open, I’m scared to death
Existential weight no longer holds you back
Conceptual paths wide open, I’m scared to death
I’m ready for the future, I’m ready for what happens next

Calling Down to Momma Dukes

with 9 comments

She didn’t hear a single call. Sigh…

I know I’m a bit behind here at MyLifeComics, but I will catch up as best as I can over the next few days. These upcoming weeks will be doozies, and I just want to thank y’all for your patience and for checking back in here at the site now and again.

Also, here’s a bit of a plug: reader TK42one did a handful of comics the other week. Go forth and check them out!
