Comic 675 – “Sad Day”
Errol: This comic has been waiting in the sidelines since June 19th. And then I combined it with a conversation from today. Poor manpans.
Whitless: Yup, this happened too. It was a terrible horrible no good very bad day. I should not have played Terraria. I should have done work :D. But I was too sad to. Errol…does not get sadness. But he still has to deal with mine from time to time. Poor Errol 😀
We often joke about Errol’s almost alien perception of the complex system known as human emotions but the truth is I quite often envy his ability to just be happy and content and not be bogged down by sadness or misery.
I envy that too! Though I’d also be a bit scared to live any amount of time with Errol’s enthusiasm lol. It seems exhausting. XD
It is exhausting. Even to me at times. ^_^
I suppose this strip needs an appropriate soundtrack:
I thought the same thing.
*reads title on Twitter* Oh no, what happened!
*read comic* … Why doesn’t Errol get sad!
Seriously, how do you not get sad?
Honestly… it’s my brain chemistry.
My brain chemistry is pretty darn awesome. And then it’s a feedback loop.
Happy thoughts lead to positive thinking worldview leads to… constant contentment.
All those posts on FB about how to be happy? It’s all true. But I can’t TELL you how to get there. I don’t know HOW to get there. I’m just there. If it were just easy to adopt 12 steps, everyone would be happy.
This pretty much sums up my views on the Facebook happiness posts. I’m not really a fan of them.
I like #17 – “Avoid fictional drama and tragedy like the plague.”
Heck, I’m happy and I avoid it. 😀 I also like 13, and 15 … and the last one. Makes sense to me. 😀 Well, the whole list makes sense to me!
Hey, that list actually makes sense.
Do you think if I said, “Jesus”, people would groan and roll their eyes?
To Manda: knock knock
Oh shoot… I’m still a towel..
To be honest I don’t get sad all that much either. At least not in a way where I identify with being sad. I do have sad moments in correlation with shows, books etc. and mostly at times when I don’t want to be feeling sad. *shrug* I think that’s when whatever sadness I’ve felt decides to manifest. My normal moods are apathetic, annoyed (and other variations of angry), tired, and good (or happy-ish). I wouldn’t really call it happy but I do have my good moods. XD
I cry. Easily. My moods tend to the…. extreme. I can be very very very happy. I think I’ve been bouncy and hyper enough at times to make ERROL tired, watching me. But I also hit some pretty massive lows, whole weeks where I just start bawling without provocation, and have to be all but dragged out of my room. But then, ask nearly everyone, apparently I don’t do middle ground for anything. Seriously, my theme songs are “I’ll be mellow when I’m dead” “I go to extremes” and I try to tell myself “:It’ll be alright” by Superchick is one of mine too, but that doesn’t always fit. @.@
Thumbs up for SuperChic[k]!
They’re awesome, aren’t they?
