The Genesis of Today's Comic
Here is an IM transcript of a conversation between me and an unmarried buddy explaining the intricacies of matrimony:
me: I hate brussel sprouts, but my wife insists on getting them.
me: I throw these hissyfits, so she's been trying different ways to prepare them.
me: She finally found a way to make them palatable to me.
buddy: why bother?!
me: Covered in garlic to the point where that's all I can taste.
buddy: that seems like the safest way
buddy: but WHY
me: Dunno, you learn to make compromises in marraige.
me: I can't stop her from buying them, but she can't stop me from complaining.
me: Although, I guess now she won...
me: Because now, brussel sprouts are wondrous garlic conveying edibles.
buddy: you have lost :-(
me: This battle, yes....
buddy: the WAR
me: Well, that is marraige.
me: After you say the vows, the man is put on a purely insurgency footing.
buddy: that is awesome
me: Case in point. I've been hacking my lungs out.
me: She traipses around in her skivvies, and then BENDS OVER to pick something up.
buddy: haaaahah ahahahahaha
me: As I feebly reach over, she admonishes me, "Don't get me sick!"
buddy: that is awful
buddy: awful hilarious
me: The truth is awfully hilarious.
buddy: yes tis
buddy: oh man that is cruel
