Comic 249 – “Valentine Song”
Errol: The problem with being male and having female creative partners is that you have to eventually reassure them that you don’t like them in a romantic way. When you are an old, unattractive male, they all naturally assume you are some creepy guy that just wants some nubile fling!
Debs: I never assumed…GARRRRRRRRRRRGH! Isn’t the word ‘nubile’ meant for 18 year olds?
Debs has a problem with males liking her. I have a problem with females thinking I like them. *laugh*
Debs: Admit it, Errol. You like the fact that guys like me because then they are more likely to come to our shows.
Happy Valentine’s day! They’re going to kill me for this post, I just know it.
Debs: Hey…I’m just glad you didn’t make today’s comic about me!
Hah! See? I knew you thought I liked you. *sigh*
Whitless: For the record, I never thought Errol interested in me romantically :P. I was more confused that he wanted to be my friend in the first place, ‘cause you know… he’s cool.
Are you sure we’re thinking of the same guy?
But I do empathize with the perception of creative partners in this world. There’s been a few co-actors/writers over the years that my friends have assumed I was romantically involved with simply because we meshed so well on stage. It’s a hard relationship to describe to people, so it’s easier just to let them assume.
Also for the record: Errol was brilliant for getting married on Valentine’s Day. It’s like a 2-for-1 deal! And easy to remember!
Errol: I don’t believe any of you.
I can assure you with complete certainty, that I have never once nor will I ever, mistake your friendly disposition for attraction towards me. So clearly the answer to your problems is more Errol & the Bald Guy projects! 😀
@James, I don’t believe you EITHER. YOU THINK I WANT YOU!
And as Manda and Debs fawm their nefarious plans to make Errol regret his actions (phase one, teach Errol what the word regret means)…
@Mercenary Pen, And how.
@Mercenary Pen, is “fawm” a generic verb now, like “smurf”?
@Rod Downburst Johnson, nope, it just replaces form in many if not all contexts.
Errol hasn’t put my blurb up yet. But yes. yes, I am going to kill him :P. He was all “Maybe you should review the comic”. Except by review he meant “I’ve already posted it and there’s nothing you can do nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah!”
@Manda, He pulls that on me all the time…like the weekend comic he posted and later asked “is it okay that I displayed your vulnerabilities for all the world to see?” Lesigh. But anyway, I can post your blurb if you send me to me 🙂
@Manda, Oh… ya. Right. I do that. 😀
Oooh, you know what would be fun, maybe an argument between you two.
“HE DOESN’T LIKE ME!! HE LIKES YOU!”
Just because I’m creepy doesn’t mean I like you.
@Errol, OR we just plot our revenge against you. Watch Totorro without you while you go insane.
