Spared


I started doing this at the end of August but then I busted my arm and now here we are almost at the end of October and it is completely irrelevant because all the bugs are now dead for the year, completely negating the point of this comic.

The point being that I do not mind any little flying guys around, and to be honest sometimes I will even try to catch and release mosquitoes if possible. Maybe they can be a snack for a frog or a bat, but I’m not gonna end them.

I guess I’m lucky in a way, that I don’t live in some rundown home where I would have to take action if an infestation broke out. To be honest I’ve never even seen a cockroach, so I don’t know if I’d feel bad if they invaded my living area and I had to get rid of them. I don’t think I’d be able to set traps for mice or rats, unless they were the non-lethal ones. The only mobs I get around here are the fruit flies at the end of summer, but they don’t really do anything other than swarm around the garbage and sometimes drown in my tea. Which yes, I do feel bad about. I have grown to value life about 300% this year. So as you can imagine I think winter is the worst because it is a sad lifeless season. No birds singing in the morning, no crickets at night.

Anyway, speaking of matters of life, drawing a comic brought back memories of 2013 when I first started doing this, and this song had just come out. Okay, that’s all for now.
