Back to School!

Yesterday was the first day of school in my district.  As a sub, the first few days are usually very light on work because teachers are quite good about not missing work.  However, yesterday I opened a class for the first time ever on the first day of school.  That means I had to do all the administrative stuff the real teacher would do on the first day of school: meeting parents, assuring kids they don’t need to cry about looking at a bearded stranger who was not the female teacher they were expecting, new books, materials, rosters, safety and behavior standards, setting the tone, and on and on…  That blew my mind, and I was so tired I didn’t draw a comic.  Sorry all.

But yay! This comic is the FIRST to contain new material from the 2012-2013 school year.

But, a word about the future: school is back in session.  There are pros and cons.

PROS: New material! The freshest, newest, funniest material will rise to the top of the heap and you will laugh more than ever.

CONS: I’m tired.  The artwork might be sloppier because I’ve lost the luxury of time I enjoyed all summer.  Also, I may have to pull the plug on Weekend Kids depending on how tired I am.

Conclusion: I’m gonna try to keep the regular schedule going.  Let’s play it by ear.  Until then, go hock up some loogies!
