Somewhere in our house is a surveillance camera. We haven't found it yet, but we know it exists. We know this because almost weekly, some aspect of our lives is played out in the funny pages of the newspaper. It's uncanny. Several summers ago, we found a frog in our wading pool in the backyard. Within days, Zoe and Hammie found a frog in their pool in the comic strip Baby Blues. Our power goes out and the next thing you know, Family Circus has a funny about eating ice cream in the dark during an outage. How did they know, I ask you?
Some of our favorite comics are Baby Blues, Calvin and Hobbes, Zits, Bliss, and Non Sequitur. In honor of the erie way that our lives end up on their drawing boards, I will be posting some of the "been there, done that" strips on Sundays. Or, more accurately, I will be posting links if I can find them. I don't want to get drawn going to jail for copyright infringement.
