Separate Selves

Matt,

I'm really enjoying the last few strips dealing with Beth's discussion with her various selves. We all have multiple aspects to ourselves where we behave differently - even seem like different people at times (husband/wife, father/mother, friend, son/daughter, employee, employer, church member, etc.). I'm enjoying Beth's frank communication with the different aspects of herself.

I also liked the mention (in today's strip) of the aspects of our society where we give our job's classier names than the norm to make us feel more special - Barrista (coffee waitress), Sanitation Specialist (garbage man), and Customer Service Specialist (boxboy) to name a few.

You have such wit and the strip always has good art. Thanks so much for the recent updates. :)

dbrose,

I have to say, it means the world to me when someone like you takes a minute to post here or drop me a line. It really helps me feel like I'm not drawing L&F in the middle of a desert and am making a connection with funny situations we all share and can identify with.

So, thank you very much for your kind words.

Also, I think we should all start calling Baristas "Pot-Jockeys." I really want that one to catch on.

Matt

Matt,

It's my pleasure to give some feedback.

You do a great service for all of us and each update brings a smile to my day.

Thanks,

Dave

BTW, "Pot-Jockey" sounds much better than "coffee waitress".

Consider it done :wink:

Filter-filler? Bean-juicer?

It's good to use these mildly disparaging monikers to keep barista-nation from getting designs on power. That would be too macchiatovelian.

No? Just me?

And when you're waiting in line at the coffee place: usually around 2:45 pm you can see people doing the: mocha polka

right guys? right? . . . no? . . . nothing? :shifty:

My string ensemble plays a mean mocha polka. I play the cappucello.

But in truth, I'm more of an esprasso doble man.

(mocha polka. shoulda thunka that myself. nice)
