Once A Year, Like Clockwork

Today happens to be my birthday and I shall commemorate it the same way I've done for the past several years, in gustatory defiance of my vegetarian ways, by having BBQ, as is every good Texan's birthright. BBQ is the only thing that will make me lay down my cauliflower-crust pizza for at least one day and blind myself to the suffering of the critter of who I'm eventually going to partake.



As it's my Special Day I'm going to share with the world a personal superstition/myth.

When the ex-missus and I bought Casa Izquierda, lo those many years ago, she planted a pair of majestic spider dragon lilies outside the dining room window. The year after we divorced one of the lilies withered and died and I began to whimsically think that when her soul moved on, so did the lily's.

I know it's silly but I kinda think that when the other lily croaks, I'll croak with it. So each spring I eagerly watch for the lily to rise again, phoenix-like, and I know that I'll be good for another year.

Now, if you'll pardon me, I need cake. And a certain lily needs fertilizer.


Final Note: I wrote the "gag" for this cartoon and then sketched out the unusual, for me, artwork to accompany it. I knew it'd be a lot of work to create (Spoiler: It was.) and the joke isn't the best but I had a fine time cranking it out.
