HOBARKEN (Corgi Press) — Maybe the best
fears are the ones you don’t have to dread because they’ve already been
realized, right? We imagined all those crazy Madea movies (Boo 2,
anyone?), and Tyler Perry made those so we could face our fears. If
that’s the way it works, perhaps the Boss can feel some relief about
seeing what he’s afraid of coming to fruition. You know, confronting
your fears and all that is something my doctor, WebMD ,told me.
In the background of making this Corgi Boss strip it has been an
“interesting” week on the fear front because we may have a had an
attempted putsch in The Capitol! Writing this I can hardly believe that a
group of intellectual homunculi were cosplaying that infamous Who
concert! The breakdown of our orderly disordered government has long
been a fear of mine. Would civil warfare mean I wouldn’t be able to eat
Mike and Ike’s anymore?
However, that fear doesn’t seem so earth-shattering because it didn’t
actually shatter the earth. I heard about the news then put my
headphones in and got on the exercise bike. Hey, I’m worried about the
state of our democracy, but I’ve also got personal fitness goals. It’s a
new year, after all.
Like the boss, the state of the world is making me stronger. I’m
facing fears I didn’t even know I had. …Or I’m just one of those frogs
being boiled slowly. Isn’t that just a confit anyway? Fancy!
