Just don’t

I no longer fully agree with the choices I made in this 2017 drawing. But we’ll consider that progress.


(or: a fresh pair of 2022-eyes)

The quote (by comedian John Mulaney) still makes me laugh.

“Thank you for coming to this show by the way, I really do appreciate you coming to a thing because you didn’t have to, and it’s really easy not to go to things. It is so much easier not to do things than to do them, that you would do anything is totally remarkable. Percentage-wise, it is 100% easier not to do things than to do them.

And so much fun not to do them, especially when you are supposed to do them. In terms of, like, instant relief, cancelling plans is like heroin. It is an amazing feeling. Such instant joy.

Kids don’t like that. Kids always wanna do stuff. Kids get angry, they go, “Aw, we didn’t do anything all day.”

You ever ask an adult what they did over the weekend and they say they didn’t do anything, their faces light up. Be like, “What’d you do this weekend?”
“I, um, I did nothing… I did nothing at all. Did we do anything? No, I didn’t do anything.””
