I love the site Garfield Minus Garfield.
If you don’t know the site Garfield minus Garfield it’s a website run by a guy named Dan Walsh who takes Garfield comic strips and digitally erases Garfield from them. The reason I love Garfield minus Garfield is that when you erase Garfield from the Garfield comic strip, what you get is three panels of Jon Arbuckle interacting with nothing, looking like a complete lunatic.
That being said, I’ve taken a good long look at my own schedule, and if you were to erase all evidence of my having a baby, nothing I do makes any sense either.
If this panel were more true to life I would’ve drawn nine additional people on the sidewalk, all of whom give me weird looks every time I lose my shit over seeing a bus.
No time like 3 in the morning to wake up, sing Jimmy Buffet songs while rocking back and forth and then immediately go back to sleep.
Step 1. Cut up banana!
Step 2. DECLARE BANANAS TO BE DELICIOUS!
Step 3. Discard!
90 Minutes of reading GO DOG, GO! Why settle in with the latest Jonathan Franzen novel when you could continually read a 72 page book filled with prepositions and adjectives ?
SERIOUSLY, SOMETIMES I JUST NEED IT TO STOP.
and last but not least…
Because if you’re ever like, “Hey, how much of your time is spent sitting in public parks, enthusiastically clapping?” a quick estimate would be, “Half.”

If you enjoyed this post, sign up in the sidebar to follow the blog, or like The Ugly Volvo on Facebook and be privy to a steady stream of fairly non-offensive baby-related material! Or follow me on Twitter so that you can wonder why I don’t use my twitter account more often. (I really do mean to, I just always forget it’s there!)
And if you’ve never read it, go spend some time checking out Garfield Minus Garfield, which is also wonderful. If you’ve never checked out the original Garfield comic strip, I will assume you are a baby goat living in a cave in the Himalayas. How cool for you that you have internet access somehow!
