Supporting my comic strips on Patreon can get you access to early comics, fun giraffe doodles, and you could even be in the comic like Trevor here!

I have been working for The Bookstore for almost 18 years now and most of that time has been spent doing opening shifts. Shelving, receiving, zoning, all that type of stuff is handled before we open for business every day. My internal clock is cemented into place. Closing shifts for me are way too late in the day. Starting work at 2pm is awful. I’ve had just enough time at home to relax. The rest of the day will be spent working, followed by a bedtime set around midnight. It wouldn’t be so bad if I could sleep in at all. My weekends are start just as early. It’s a terribly difficult habit to break.

We’ll see how all of this works out with a newborn. It’s less than two weeks now… I am half looking forward to being a father and half freaking out about being responsible for another human being.
