Spark Comic #74 - When Life Gives You Lemons...

Hello, Sparky Fans! How is life? Life for me has been great! I've been relaxing, working, just got back from Anime North 2014 and have been pretty happy all around. It is for this reason that I'm expecting Life to majorly shit on my parade in the near future.

   Here's how my life works: If I'm lucky enough to catch a break and experience even a little bit of happiness, it will find some way, no matter how unlikely the occurrence, to ruin it tenfold. Pleasure can only be appreciated and put into context when compared to pain, but sometimes I feel like the universe conspires against me most of the time. If I'm having a great day, something bad will always happen; even if the bad thing is small it will be significant enough to leave a very noticeable stain on an otherwise perfect day. If I'm happy and things have been going well for any given amount of time, Life will come crashing through my door with a freight train just because it can. No matter what, Life will always find a way...

  Considering how consistent this rule is, I've resigned myself to the fact that whenever things are going well, it's a warning that things are about to go to hell real fast. It makes me appreciate the good times and keeps me on my toes to be prepared and sense when shit is about to drop. Bring it on Life, I accept your challenge!

  Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go burn Life's house down with combustible lemons. See you next comic! :)
