This cartoon took a while. For some reason I had, “I like you, Tompkins, walk with me” in my head. I could not figure out quite how to do it though and I tried all sorts of variations:
- “I like you, Tompkins. Speed walk with me.”
- “I like you, Tompkins. Piggy back ride!”
- “I like you, Tompkins. But not enough to walk with me while I talk. Maybe that will come in time, but I’m not there yet.”
Once I changed the executive into a penguin – everything just fell into place.
