Comic: Shelf Awareness

This is Pi Day #069 – March 09

I wanted to spend the afternoon at the library but they were booked.

I get a kick of how literal she is sometimes. Literal? Literal and literary.

At the risk of turning this into a daddy blog, I will say that as I try to figure out my actual role in the multi-year scenario that is being a dad to a freshly minted pre-teen, I am finding it is less about the “simple rules for my daughter” and more about how I adjust my own life to set an example. The kid has eyes. So many eyes. Everything I do is being watched and questioned and reflected back at me.

So as much as she’s a literal kid, she is also a literary one I guess. But largely because I am. Well.. literary. Not a kid. You know what I meant, right? I hope.

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.
