I’ve got to work on my handwriting.
On the last couple Significant Otters strips, I’ve been whiting out my handwriting in Pixelmator and typing the dialogue in Helvetica, which I liked even less than my own handwriting.
Which has always been terrible because I still don’t hold my writing utensils correctly (there was a point in school where my pencil was taped to my hand and I was making my own pencil grips from bubble gum).
So, I’ll just have to slow down and think about every letter I’m putting down.
It’ll also help avoid the stupid homophone mistakes I tend to make when excited and writing quickly (special education teacher FTW).
HER: I’m in a fowl mood, today.
HIM: You misspelled “foul”.
HIM: There’s a “u” in “foul”.
HER: There’s also a “u” in “fuck you”.
HIM: Two “u’s,” actually.
This episode of Significant Otters is inspired by actual events, but I did not tell John to fcuk off. Not right then, anyway. And not for that reason.
