The important thing to keep in mind when reading this week's comic strip is that..
The thought does matter!
They say 'Work hard and you will be rewarded.'
'Slow and steady wins the race.'
"It's about the journey, not the destination."
And yet Mrs. Ninja wonders whether it's a good or a bad thing that so many tasty things take forever to make and yet disappear in seconds; the irony in this thought being that fact that the faster it goes, the better the result.
Mrs. Ninja does take it upon herself to declutter her wardrobe every once in a while but the amount of questions that run through her mind when do so is fascinating, really:
- Do I have to throw these? They look fine.
- Does this mean I have to shop for new things? Gah, I hate shopping.
- Maybe I can simply start wearing these at home now.
- Is this going to end up in a landfill and pollute the environment even more?
Bottom line: It's not an easy process. MAYBE pile much?
Annoying Aunty is back! This old recurring character made a surprise return to this week's comic and hasn't changed one bit, it would seem.
And it brings up so many questions:
Why does Aunty assume Mrs. Ninja is shopping for her husband?
What's with her thinking the 'black scary shirt' is more suited for a guy?
And most importantly...
Why is Mrs. Ninja shopping with Annoying Aunty? XD
No, I'm not talking about the kind where one drops food and convinces themselves that bacteria spare a few seconds before hopping onto the spillage - a belief that's probably been set in place in order to avoid having to discard or 'waste' something that one could otherwise enjoy.
In this case, the 3 second rule is a not-as-exaggerated-as-you-think minimum timeline for Mr. Ninja to be able to enjoy a food item.
What's most important is that no one should judge how someone enjoys their food... although Mrs. Ninja gets quite irked if Mr. Ninja doesn't eat his veggies with meat.
It really is strange that something as simple as walking out on the street and bumping into or striking conversations with people that you don't know or may never meet again has become something worthy of calling a throwback.
Not to mention the kicks out of eavesdropping on conversations and jumping to conclusions. Guilty? Heh.
As was the common theme for 2020, this year seems to be one filled with a lot of trouble all around. It's during times like these that one must not underestimate the importance of spreading love and happiness where they can. You never know who might need it.
Stay positive, guys!
It feels like I started the new season this year a little later than usual. Well, there is a lot of crazy stuff happening out in the world that was occupying my mind; figured I might as well send out a few smiles during this grim time, if that helps anyone.
There definitely is so much going on right now that I want to use my comics to talk about; however the bulk of this season's stories are pre-Covid19. Don't be surprised if you see a lot of throwbacks; I might even bring in my Mini-series 'Lockdown Love' every once in a while if I feel the need to do so.
