Comic 559 – “Dodgeball”
Errol: I wrote Debs FAWM.org Bio. She thought the bio should be made into a comic and then mentioned we should add dodgeball into that. I thought she wanted me to work dodgeball into the bio. That was the only discussion we’ve had about dodgeball in a comic. 😀
Debs: Well, to be fair, it was 1:30am and we were both tired. And according to Google chat, what I said was ” into the mix of things” so I can see how that could have been vague. You could have asked, y’know 🙂
Errol: Seriously though, I think Debs and I have an inability to communicate. Sometimes she will chat to me after we haven’t talked for a few days and I seriously am confused at what the context is. I have no idea what she’s talking about.
Debs: These days? Often it’s Spintunes.
Errol: Other times, it’s like the above. Our minds work in ways so completely different from each other that she constantly misunderstands me and I her.
So imagine what it would be like if she tried to tell me about her emotions. Disaster would happen. 😀
Debs: Is that a veiled request that I should never tell you about them 😛 Anyway, you understood me perfectly well regarding the vocals for Ja-Mez’s Sarah song so all is good!
That bio should be a comic! XD I’ll admit to not being sure where dodgeball comes in and why Debs wants it in. Never liked that game personally… then again I don’t like any game that requires movement (from me). XD
I don’t mind doing sports, I just don’t like watching them. 😀 (And it depends on the sport. I don’t skate very well at all… so no hockey)
* Laughs * Jez, it’s just a “talk about my life for once” thing and it was the first thing that came to mind 😛 A couple of my friends had been playing and convinced me to join. I was hesitant because of the whole sucking thing but the team is awesome and it’s all fun.
Ahhh well then yes dodgeball should be in the comic! XD
It’s been a very long time since I played (like elementary school gym class long) but I’m pretty sure I either faked sick so I could sit on the sidelines or made sure to get hit somewhat so I was out early. XD
Hehe! The kind of nice thing about this league is that the strongest players are often targeted first because they pose the greatest threat. That means I usually last until at least midway through if I keep the balls I throw low so no one can catch.
Dodging was always the fun part…THROWING was where it got stressful for me :P. Any sport with throwing really is one I will avoid, especially ones that require precision throwing. I always liked soccer- kicking is way easier, and when necessary I could use my whole body to stop people :D.
I’ll admit I’m not grand at the throwing part (the guys can throw CRAZY hard) and because of that, it’s more about tactics and waiting for moments when people aren’t paying attention.
I suck at throwing.
And dodging. I have a large mass.

Wait… you need more than four people…
You could use your Totoro army… XD
Or just hit people with the totoro’s
Ooo new game! Totoro-ball! XD
I should make knitted snowballs… 😀
Three on three, guys against girls!
Personally, I’d leave Manpans till last.
Just IMAGINE her anxiety as being the only one on the team … it’d be hilarious. 😀
That. Would be awesome.
Poor Manpans. We need to video tape her playing board games.
Ack, I HATED team choosing. Hate hate HATED. Stupid anxiety. And you would exploit that again!
You know, we could play everybody versus Errol for that one…
As long as Manpans is throwing… all good. 😀
No, I think I’ll have to take that particular responsibility- I may not be a terribly good shot (dyspraxia does a number on me there) but at least I don’t let it get to me.
hmmm Dyspraxia must suck.. I hate it when my body doesn’t obey my mind. Plus it sounds like a evil planet from a 50’s scifi movie…
I started that post because I imagined a first panel with a hyperly gleeful, maniacal Errol launching out dozens of dodge balls and the remaining panels as freeze frames of the balls hitting various known characters. And then the final panel is ManPans and Debs lying flat on their backs with stars round their heads.
ManPans: Yeah, good idea Debs..
Ooooh…. better yet…
It should be closer to … was it Lore Hera’s comic?
Re: Dyspraxia- I don’t actually suffer all that much these days because it was picked up on fairly early on and I was put through an occupational therapy programme to build me up to something far closer to normal levels of hand-eye coordination- its only the really fancy stuff I tend to struggle with these days, not like back in the day when I couldn’t even walk in a straight line for trying…
I am convinced you just want to see the fat guy run and dodgeball is merely the excuse.
Argh, now I want to come to Canada to play dodgeball. 😀
In all seriousness, if I ever travel overseas, I would like to visit Canada. Seems like an interesting place.
:: Grins at the comment about my comic that is too far into for me reply to::
I got to play Settlers, a game called something or other construction, and apparently I’m not allowed to play pass-ack word anymore. Oh, but apparently there is a website where we can play Settlers on-line for free.
As to Dodgeball, it does not matter if I’m actually playing. The ball will hit me in the head. Does not matter if you’re actually playing volley ball, soccer, baseball, the ball will hit me in the head. I like fencing and archery, personally. Give me a weapon and don’t make me run.
