Somebody told me they actually enjoy reading this.

Today one of my co-workers told me that they enjoyed reading this blog. This compliment came with an admonition. He said that it was like this blog was written by a different person than he sees on a day to day basis. There was the guy who hated his job and the guy that loved making comics. Silently, I laughed to myself. Firstly, he said it right in front of our boss. I don’t openly admit that I hate my job. Perhaps its because admitting it is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Whatever the case I certainly don’t say that in front of the man who signs my checks. Thats just stupid. So I sit here on a Tuesday night with a pint glass full of cheap beer silently toasting that I may never hate making comics. I raise my glass and set it down again and propose another toast: I hope that I never hate the job that allows me to make comics.
