It’s a little hard to tell since he has such short legs, but after I take showers, the cats will come and rub themselves all over my legs. I’m assuming it’s because I’ve washed their scent off so they’re reclaiming me as theirs.

Yes I did try shaking water off a bit, but it just kind of made me a little bit dizzy and I felt incredibly silly after doing it.
We have a theory right now that the towel that hangs in the path of the window always dries the best because it’s saturated by sunlight in the morning so we’re trying a towel rotation based on when we take our showers. Not sure how long it should be before I declare the experiment a failure or success.
Okay, this is the last PAX strip I swear. I’ll have more after next year’s PAX East, but I promise that I won’t milk it as hard since I already spent a week doing strips about PAX this time.
With the exception of the last panel, this strip can apply to any convention I go to. Whenever I come back from a convention there’s a settling in period that usually takes a week at most. I come back home, plop the luggage on the floor, I don’t feel like cooking, I feel tired and unclean and generally don’t want to do anything. But after I put away the luggage, do the laundry, take out the trash, tidy up a bit, shower and make my first meal after the convention that usually is the sign that I’m pretty much back to normal.
Since I’m unemployed right now I managed to do this in record time, but it still took a few days to feel completely back on track.
Actually it was a little bit worse because I didn’t have my glasses on during this ordeal which mean all I could see was this big black blurry spot in my vision. Fortunately there aren’t any cracks that it could escape to so as I clumsily followed it around the bathroom lifting up the laundry basket and wastebasket it didn’t manage to escape. I wadded up a big thing of toilet paper only to realize that it might not have the crushing power that I needed to take it out.
To be continued!
This is a sequel to this comic. When I relayed this story about our shower head’s betrayal, Anna asked me why don’t I just turn the shower on when I’m not in the shower, wait, and then get in when I’m sure that it’s warm. The only answer being that that is the logical/smart thing to do so clearly it had no business being anything I would consider actually doing.
This did actually happen by the way.
I do this every time I take a shower. Sometimes it varies slightly depending on the angle of the shower head.
My shower was making these noises a few days ago. It’s kind of amazing how I’ve learned the exact changes in pressure/sound that my shower will make right before it decides to dump ice cold water on me. I can imagine someone else using my shower and getting ambushed then asking me how I deal with a shower that does that all the time. It’d seem like a booby trap sort of thing if only it happened more often.
I don’t know when this starts in a person’s life or when it started for me, but I think most people just carry tension in their body 24/7 without realizing it most of the time. I do think about this a lot in the shower because the shower is supposed to be one of those places where people are really relaxed. The water is nice and warm and yet I find myself tense. When I really relax my muscles and all that I almost feel like I’m going to fall asleep. Living/working in the city I’m sure doesn’t help, nor does working/playing in front of a computer all day and night long.
This is what I come home to find after a weekend away from my apartment. Let it be said that after cleaning up a dead roach there certainly shouldn’t be smear marks like there now are on the bottom of my tub by the drain. Still not sure if it’s blood or poop, I’m guessing blood but I have no basis for comparison. Not that I’m hoping for any basis for comparison in the near or distant future.
