Benny & Sid Presents Chapter 9 of the New Serialized Graphic Novel The Hummer

When the day is done you pull your keys from your pocket, walk out to your car, unlock the door and slip into your sanctuary.

The Hummer #9
By Glen Bledsoe

(Your City, USA) - You find a note left by your boss.

He wants to see you about something. Your boss doesn't ever talk to you unless he's got a problem.

You wanna say, "Now what, you lazy #$@^%#@?" But you need the job. You only half-listen to his beef. Somebody always has something to complain about.

They never see your talent, the good work you do. You cast your eyes down and leave his office.

When the day is done you pull your keys from your pocket, walk out to your car, unlock the door and slip into your sanctuary.

The Truant Officer now available in ! comic format

Friend O: Reads better in original... but I do decipher your grist and Glen's, too.

What is this generation going to do for that kind of mental jukebox? Music, movies, books are all maybe a little too easy to come by. They don't have to relive a movie scene in their memories and imaginations. They don't enlarge or subtly modify to create meaning where none might be intended. They just play it again. My buddies and I would watch a movie and talk about our favorite scenes, but not see the movie again for years thereafter. We found we remembered things that were never in the movie. There's something to be said for staying a little hungry.

I meant to say "cerebral", Damn!, I hope it doesn't muddy up the context of my original comment.

yeah, those tunes in the cerbral library's ongoing playlist are what's gonna keep Hummer..,and America..,Sane! It's clear as the fracture in the Liberty Bell Glen, The Sanity of it all!.,the Sanity! It's like Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" cruisin' down route 66. The surfers would say.,"bitchin' man!,just bitchin!"
