None of my wishes ever came true, but you’ll never convince me this place wasn’t magical.
This story always makes my mom roll her eyes and accuse me of making things up while she shiftily looks around the room to see who is buying her story. But no, this really happened and it took ages (probably maybe even half an hour–I don’t know, I never wore a watch) for Mom to come retrieve us with a ladder.
This one is a sliiiiight jump-ahead to a vacation we took during the teenage years.
This family tradition makes me extremely uncomfortable.
Remember how I read a lot of books with antiquated vocabulary as a child? (See A Bosom Friend for more.) Well, here’s another comic based on that. When I asked for her opinion on this comic, Charlotte called it “The most unfunny thing [I] have ever written.” Maybe she just didn’t like it because she wasn’t in it. Or maybe I only think it’s funny because I am sick and consuming lots of cough syrup and then lots of coffee to combat the sleepy effects of the cough syrup. Maybe this comic is best enjoyed while drinking cough syrup and coffee.*
*Not a serious recommendation. Please don’t drink cough syrup and coffee.
