Home Spun comic strip #576
Great story about drawing this comic strip:
When I originally inked it in, I accidentally drew a speech balloon around Jess' words when I had intended to make it a thought. I figured I could fix it when I scanned it onto the computer. Of course, now that I was on the computer, aka the Great Distraction Factory, I figured I should update my Facebook page (I think it's some unwritten law for Facebook users). For my status I wrote, "Don't you just hate it when you make a speech balloon where you meant to put a thought bubble?" I thought you might enjoy some of the responses...
~Just as much as I hate it when I speak without thinking first! : )
~hmmmm... let me think about that.... doh!
~I think aloud all the time. LOL
~Hmm..I think there's some deep insight in there somewhere...
~Many things which should be in thought bubbles come out in speech balloons.
~ I guess it is the cartoonist's equivalent to sticking your foot in your mouth :D
And my personal favorite...
~Did you know that if you think outside in sub-zero temps your thought bubbles will freeze?
