This was one of those self-flagellating strips, which said in print something I had been thinking: I often missed important conversations because I was focused on something less relevant. In this strip, I’ve drawn Katie’s favourite jacket—one I destroyed by putting in the dryer! There is also mention of my friend, Margie Palmer. Whenever I could, I’d put a friend’s name in the paper to let them know I was thinking of them. This proved to be a lot of fun and even connected me to friends with whom I’d lost touch.
