If there is ever a reason to stay on Facebook, it might be this: it is a great source of ideas, both directly and indirectly. With this comic the idea was very direct. Chris, of sikkday.com, post this dialogue as a status update, adding it was ‘free dialogue’ for folks to use as they saw fit. I, of course, commented with, “I’m totally using this for a comic,” and Chris gave his blessing.
Chris is half of the Montreal Sauce podcast, along with partner-in-crime Paul¹ (I was a guest on a recent episode), and the three of us went to college together. Chris now lives in the frozen wastes of Canada, while I live in the frozen wastes of Michigan. These days, we stay in touch via social media. Ain’t that special?
¹ Parents: Paul has an app for iPhones and iPads called Typey Typey. It is a typing app for little kids.

Observant Raptor: Why are you smiling like that?

Hovertext: Think happy thoughts–especially over a nice cup of coffee.
