Strip: This is Summer Riding (Part 3)

This is Pi Day #012.c

I was wondering why my bicycle fell over… then I realized it’s probably because it’s two tired.

I am being a bit unfair. In fact on a recent ride we came upon a beautiful lookout over the river valley, looking down on the bridge we’d crossed on a previous ride, and she stood there so long taking it all in that I thought we were going to have to file a change of address with the tax office.

But that’s more of an exception.

“Oh… look at this beautiful view!” I’ll suggest.

She’ll be looking instead at a patch of clover trying to find a ‘lucky one.’

“From this bridge you can look five kilometers down the river.” I’ll say.

She’ll be throwing stones to see them ‘plop’ in the water below.

It’s all about priorities, I suppose. And to be honest, her’s are probably more interesting than mine.

Do you Like Web Comics?

Hey! Me too! What a coincidence.

This is Pi Day is an independent web comic about fatherhood, running, video games, science, art, independence, integrity, imagination and just generally ... family adventure. It is created, written, illustrated, and promoted by Brad Salomons from a quiet suburb of a remote Canadian city called Edmonton, Alberta.

Looking for more pi? We regularly celebrate at the great circle of math, science and technology culture. This is Pi Day has been calculated as the product of one geeky dad, one curious kid, and an irrational volume of corny dad jokes.

New full strips are published on Saturday mornings (and shorts, appearing randomly whenever I draw them). This is Pi Day will always be free to read on this site, but if you enjoy it please help me out by sharing the link on social media or supporting in other ways.
