…from the home office in wahoo, nebraska

Since I’ve been a fan of David Letterman since I was a kid, here’s a Top Ten List.

 

Top Ten Reasons There Will Be No Comics This Week.

 

10. I am so poor (read: teacher’s salary!), I didn’t have money to buy new Bristol board until this past Friday.

 

9. I have to grade 110 “fictional narratives” for the 9th grade by next Friday.

 

8. I have to grade 110 “poetry collections” for the 9th grade by next Friday.

 

7. I have to great 45 “personal narratives” for the 10th grade by next Friday. I have to do all these things because…

 

6. End of quarter grades are due on Friday!

 

5. During the time I usually take to pencil my comic strips on Saturday night, I spent a relaxing evening with Ellen and our friend Michelle at the Dayton Philharmonic hearing a performance of Mozart’s Requiem. It was quite awesome.

 

4. I just took on a paid commission on which I need to start working!

 

3. Must put together new Ikea bookcase for living room.

 

2. Have to carve out a couple of hours here or there for the family.

 

…and the Number One reason There Will Be No Comics This Week…

 

1. Buttafouco, Buttafouco, Buttafouco!

 

I can almost guarantee that Letterman still doesn’t do Joey Buttafouco jokes, but they were catnip for the guy when I was watching it every night.

 

Anyhow, no new comics this week…  possibly some sketchbook type-stuff. Stay tuned.
