Surviving the World

A Photocomic Education by Dante Shepherd

Lesson #560 - Pregnancy

Yesterday as I was about to make today's comic, I got a call from my friend Joel (who was kind enough to post a comic once when I was on vacation). He told me his wife was in labor. And had been since Tuesday night.

Yesterday was Friday. It might not have been full-on having-the-baby-now labor, but dear God, I don't know how we were able to talk for almost an hour and never say that above phrase. We certainly danced around it the entire time.

Push little Grace out, Raechel. The world's excited to meet her. Plus, the men who know you would appreciate not feeling the I'm-not-a-woman guilt.
