Wellllll . . . we're both Canadian. That's one.
The second thing I have in common with Shania Twain is the sentiment expressed in the above comic. Kinda. Sorta.
I was about to post a quote from Shania ( I feel confident in referring to her on a first name basis seeing as we're compatriots and all. ) and I suddenly remembered this strip. "Wow", I thought, "Her quote and my comic have practically the exact, same, identical message . . . kinda, sorta."
"It's important to give it all you've got while you have the chance."
You see the similarites? What's that you say? Not really?
Well, okay . . . maybe the sentiment is not exactly the same. But what's interesting here (at least to me) is that this is an example of where a strip idea comes from in reverse.
I realize that probably doesn't make very much sense but I've just deleted my explanation 6 times and I don't think I'm going to be able to make this much clearer.
What I'm trying to say is that, if I had read this quote before I had written this strip, I can see where I would have gotten the inspiration to write this strip. So this is an example of where strip ideas come from . . . kinda, sorta.
Rock on, Shania!
