I am so great at feeling guilty for things. Maybe that’s my superpower!
So I’ve spent much of the day thinking about our responsibility to our fellow man vs. care for our personal safety. Was this guy suffering from heat exhaustion at 7:30 am? Or was he just drunk? In which case, is it dangerous for me to try to wake him up? Should I have stayed? or would I have just gotten in the way? I think we pretty much did everything we were supposed to do – or, at least, that other girl did. I didn’t do anything.
Anyway. The girl in question didn’t mean anything by that “I’m a lady” comment – only that she didn’t want to rouse a potentially angry potentially drunk guy, as a girl traveling alone. In the end, I’m sure the guy was fine, I’m fairly certain he was just drunk, and I’m sure the cops and/or paramedics showed up shortly after we left. I still wish I had stayed, though. I never know what to do in these situations! There should be a manual.
* TODAY IS THE LAST DAY to PREORDER the League of Courteous Cyclists shirts! All preorders will come with a free 4″ round vinyl sticker with the same design.
* I’m going to be a guest at Third Coast Comics’ 3rd anniversary party! It’s Saturday, July 30th, and they’re going to be grilling out and there will be baked goods and you should probably come by if you like comics, and also food.
* I’m also going to be at Chicago’s Wizard World, in artists’ alley! I will have Everyone Deserves to Feel Awesome prints, League of Courteous Cyclists shirts, and lots of books! I am so close to finishing Shuteye #6 that I’m tempted to say it’ll be for sale there, but I’m afraid to make any promises.
