Holiday Shopping 3184
How will shopping change in the far future?
For those of you who are stressing about buying a gift for that special someone, here’s a comic to take your mind off your worries.
Seriously, who doesn’t panic when holiday shopping?
I know I do.
A person could give me a shopping list that includes not only the size and colors of what they want, but also the stores where these items could be had, and I’d still manage to have choice paralysis the moment I walked into any of those stores.
I guess I could probably just send out gift cards and be done with it, however that seems so bureaucratic and impersonal.
I’d love to send art to everyone, but I’m pretty sure most of my relatives and loved ones would just scratch their heads at it since much of my work is too flipped out for them.
Perhaps I’ll send them all copies of my books so they can see all my work in context.
On second thought, I don’t think I’ll do that.
Such a gift might certainly convince them to file my commitment papers for the nearest asylum.
Maybe I’ll just send them all copies of The American Bystander #27 so they can have proof that I actually get published now and then.
I know giving such a gift would make at least one person happy—and that would be Mike Gerber, Editor and Publisher of The American Bystander.
But as for my wife, she might not be so happy with that. I’d also rather not feel the heft of issue #27 being slapped upside my head.
Agh. Holiday shopping.
I better put in my reservation now for Planet Oblitus.
May your gift giving be simple and easy.
PS. If you can, get that issue of American Bystander #27 so you can have a few laughs this holiday season. It’s better than hallucinogenic clouds.
