Oh man, parents. They’re always pulling tricks like this one! You’re so excited to chat with them or do something fun with them and they get distracted on the phone and you’re left waiting for ages! I wanted to show that frustration in this strip – Chapel’s obviously SO excited for her surprise and then her mother’s phone conversation drags on so long she doesn’t even get it! This has actually happened to me in the past – a year or two ago I remember I was waiting to watch TV with my mom, but she was busy answering email and took so long that I fell asleep on my bean bag chair.
Has anything like this happened to you? Let’s share our parental frustrations below and have our weekly chats in the comments, I love talking to you all!
I forgot to say goodnight to you.

The League of Fonts
THE LEAGUE OF FONTS is where typefaces are born. Every time a font is created in the world, it manifests as a living, breathing, Font – human for all intents and purposes, but unable to age or die unless their typeface falls into disuse. They live together on the League of Fonts, which serves as a secret island hub, bustling corporation, and home. It’s a world full of its own internal intrigues like any office, and Times New Roman is its powerful CEO. He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League?
