Well, it’s that time of year once again. And what a year it’s been… One of idiocy, uncertainty, corruption, incompetence, insincerity and anxiety. If you’re reading this, you’ve made it through one of the most challenging twelve months of many of our lives and deserve commendation, even if it appears that the majority of the previously mentioned themes will continue well into 2021.
On a completely selfish note, there have been aspects of this year that I have thoroughly enjoyed. I got to spend a lot more time with my little girl than I would’ve in any other year, seeing her grow from this little lump that cried and pooed into a happy chattering toddler with a smile that warms my soul. I’ve also enjoyed the extra time with my wife and feel that our relationship is stronger than ever, now that we’ve survived this year living in each other’s pockets and haven’t ended up hating each other (of course, I can’t speak for her…!), so it’s nice that the most popular comic is a strip about fatherhood (kind of).
