After 6 weeks of long hours and a grueling commute, I'm done with my summer teaching gig. Part of me is relieved that I won't be getting up at 5am tomorrow but, most of me will miss my borrowed classroom, the gaggle of hilarious, talented 5-8th graders I had the great pleasure of getting to know and whom I hopefully provided a little artistic guidance and awakening for. I'd go so far as to say I spent as much time in the past six weeks being amazed by the ingenuity of young minds and the dedication of my coworkers as I did having blood-boiling, traffic induced road-rage, so it evened out. Here's a moment from my classroom...I'm not sure if this comments on the kids' maturity level or mine...

My dear friend Katie Sheridan came to visit earlier this month and, amidst shennanigans that included baseball, finger-puppets, lesbian bars and medical emergencies we had the following interaction. I'd also like to dedicate this week's strip to one of my favorite professors, Steve Bissette; if this guy was telling the truth, he probably signed a contract that Steve would've taken one look at and said, "Absofuckinlutely not."
