@$$hole!: Laundry Day 6
White noise, as it’s often called, is that background sound you hear from a fan or, in this case, the washing machine. White noise makes me fall asleep. In fact, I have difficulty sleeping without white noise. But when white noise is in the room, I often start to dose off.
The AC kicks in during a meeting, the static from the TV turns on, the sound the train makes while going down the track…all of these things make me sleepy.
Now, the idea that someone would just stand by the washing machine waiting for the spin cycle to end is silly – which was kind of the point. Most people go read a book, watch a TV show, go running – or do anything else they can while the laundry is going.
However, that would distract from the story…and also not provide a joke here. Or at least, would provide a different joke. Plus, this page leads into the next…which ads to the joke.
There’s a lot of joking in sleep, apparently.
Next week I’ll be a guest of honor at Kollision Con in St Charles, Il. It’s an anime show put on by many of the same people who do ACEN, which is my favorite show of the year.
Joining me will be fellow comic creator Russell Lissau (Shrek, Strawberry Shortcake), and a slew of voice actors and awesome people I can’t wait to see again or meet for the first time!
My panels for the weekend:
Making Webcomics – 10-11pm
Reading with Pictures – 3-4pm
An Evening with Trevor Mueller – 10-11pm
It should be an awesome time, so be sure to swing by and say hi!
