I went back to look for that conversation. I was surprised to find out we started this big falling out after a talk we had about your birthday.
I told you I thought about the perfect short story which you’d enjoy so much and wouldn’t believe it exists in that real universe we share, so much so that it might as well be your birthday present.

What follows was a comic strip I was sharing with you, the comic strip I’d been thinking about for a week prior and couldn’t wait to share with you.

“panel by panel”, I said.
“live comic making”, you said.
