I love this comic. I hope you do, too, because it is awesome.
My heart and brain are currently having the following discussion:
Heart: I miss the Backpacker. Maybe if I didn’t send him that angry text he would have apologized for cancelling our date last-minute by actually giving a reason. And maybe he would have gotten better at communication if I was clearer in my communication needs. And then we could have had great sex and also maybe become adventuring buddies.
Brain: He was a terrible communicator and he was not making an effort to see you.
Heart: He had hiked the Pacific Crest Trail! He knew about the 5 lb pancake challenge in Seiad Valley. He likes hiking off trail and he packrafts and has a beautiful, oversized dog he takes backpacking! He kissed my hand when he was holding it on our last hike. And he cupped my face in his hand when he kissed me. It was the best kiss ever.
Brain: You don’t need him. There are other guys out there who would treat you better.
Brain: Here. Open up your Tinder app. See if there is somebody else you might like.
Heart: Hey, swiping is fun…
Heart: None of these guys seems as great as the Backpacker.
Brain: Oh, Heart… Come on. Let’s go get the laundry out of the dryer.
Heart: I have to get up? And shoes?
Brain: Yes. You will like it.
Heart: I dunno… But can I eat some cheese from the fridge now? And oatmeal. Can I have some sugary oatmeal since we are out of interesting food?
Brain: *Sigh.* Go for it.
