|Strip for 3/6/2002||
This is the first strip in a storyline
|Mail This Strip|
These next 7 or so strips were all written this morning. So there was no real possibility of the strip going up last night to be on time. No, last night when I should have been doing this blurb, or architecture work, I was instead getting dumped. But you, readers, gain! Daily updates until this story is told and these strips are published!
"Dumped?" you ask. Kip, when were you dating anyone? Well, that's the story isn't it? Required reading is Twin Girl's introduction during the male escort strips. Especially the blurbs.
For the lazy, I'll just say that last quarter, I met a girl and we got to know each other gradually. She had a long distance boyfriend, so I didn't just rush in and get rejected.
Part I: The G.B.F.
Around the end of November and the beginning of December, Twin Girl and I started spending time together. I cooked her dinner. We went to lunch and then sat on these swings at the park, although it was chilly. We'd go out for coffee. We started IMing a lot (funny side note, all my relationship dissections in the past have been through saved emails. Now I'm combing through IM logs. How technology changes.)
TwinGirl (1:27:44 AM): i've been thinking about
getting a surrogate boyfriend
Like I said on there in early December, that's what I was OK being. It was a raw deal, but I enjoyed her company so much that it seemed to make up for it. Reading this now, it seems so clear, right? "She told you that you couldn't want a relationship, Kip." And I was OK with that. Really. Until the middle of December rolled around.
Let's go with a full multimedia blitz! Today's song to go with the strip is These Days written by Jackson Browne, performed by Nico, and featured on the Royal Tenenbaums soundtrack. I think I've posted this song before, performed by Fountains of Wayne. Nico makes it sound so much sadder...
Oh, and there's be a new strip up Thursday, probably in the evening, so check it out. And if you miss a day, that's cool. I'll be here all week.
Heartbroken, but healing.
