What to do when your best laid plans go pear shaped, when they blow up or take a hard left turn? You own it, handle it, deal with it. And then you move on. Next! Quite a few events have gone the way of the pear here lately. But that's life, right? Not everything can take the shape of a Slim Jim.
Today's illustration might have been inspired by all the things-gone-wrong lately. Or it might have been inspired by my bing-watching madness of The West Wing and seven seasons of President Bartlet. But in truth, it was inspired by the bowl of pears I saw in a furniture catalog. Vapid, yes. But I like pears.
Right now, I'm obsessed with the Podcast Serial, which tries to unravel the true murder of a high school student and the perhaps wrongful conviction of her ex-boyfriend. Riveting, I tell you!
A big salute and heartfelt gratitude go out to our Veterans, today and always. Thank you.
