Comic: Chop Slows

This is Pi Day #049

Stick a fork in me, I’m done.

It’s not that she can’t use chopsticks, but we’re talking about a kid who stubbornly refuses to even learn proper dinner knife skills, instead relying on her overhand fork jab to scarf down most family meals. I spent a good deal of time touring through Vancouver’s budget conscious sushi circuit in my early twenties, so my chopstick dexterity is more than adequately matched to the occasional stop for a roll or a bowl, but the kid hasn’t had quite as many opportunities to practice.

On a tangential topic, only loosely related to sushi but definitely related to persistence and practice, this comic marks the official start of year two of This is Pi Day. And if you’re interested in that sort of thing, I could also tell you that as of this weekend I have drawn (not published, but drawn) exactly 100 comics and strips. This is Pi Day is getting real, folks!
