A story about consequences.
For those of you in the US, I hope that you had a wonderful, restful Thanksgiving.
To those of you outside of the US, I hope your day was peaceful and contemplative.
The following comic might be the opposite of those things.
This comic is about consequences. The consequences of rushed home buying; of hidden, unknown dangers; of dangers that are in plain sight; and finally, the consequences of impetuous teenage wisdom.
Obviously most unwanted consequences are a result of having incomplete information. But if you pull back from this pithy observation, to the 50,000 foot view, one could say the same about life. Nobody ever has the complete information of what lies ahead in life’s journey, therefore one better expect consequences.
As Robert Louis Stevenson put it, “Everyone, at some time or another, sits down to a banquet of consequences. ”
I’ve definitely had my fill of this banquet.
But on the plus side, it’s given me a lifetime of material for comedy.
I’m keeping it short and sweet this week since I’m still drowsy from Thanksgiving turkey tryptophan. On top of that, I just spent most of the day removing the old, then installing a new, faucet in my kitchen and I’m flat exhausted from all my swearing.
