Comic: Freestyle Boredom

This is Pi Day #045

Just add water.

I’ve had a waterlogged brain as of late. Both the kid and I, though separately, used to do a lot more swimming. She was in a club. I just love the water. Recently, due largely to the length and uncooperative nature of winter … spring … the weather this year, I’ve taken back to the pool for some cross-training.

Lanes!

Swimming laps!

Fitness!

Or as the Kid calls it: “dad … I’ll swim some with you … until I get bored and need a fun break!”

The other reason swimming is getting into my brain, sitting in the crook of my ear canal making little squootching noises so that no matter what way you turn your head, rocking your neck, twisting and contorting to try and get it to drain but it never wants to drizzle out and … I digress.

As this comic drops we’ll actually be at the pool stating another season of swim club. I’ll be fully dressed, probably using my phone to post this very comic strip to instagram and facebookhint hint, nudge nudge — but the kid will be doing the laps.

Fun, indeed.

Short: Lake Monsters (Panorama Comic)

This is Pi Day : Panorama Bonus #010.1

What do you can the mushy stuff stuck between a great white’s shark teeth?
…slow swimmers

Every year about this time we head out to the local lakes to camp and swim and chill.

It’s not exactly a Hawaiian beach around here. The water is wet… and that’s about it.

The beaches are more mud than sand, the water is tepid and murky, and more often than not they recommend you shower after you swim to avoid getting a rash. Uhh… fun, right?

And you wonder why we flock to tropical countries to swim in their oceans? Hey, even the sharks know better than to visit.

But it is some good quality family time, and it beats the alternative: sitting at a desk.
