Busy Business Times: I’d Love to, But . . .

business cartoon

I’ve got a second-grader and a preschooler at home, so we read a lot of kid’s books. (In fact, I can do a pretty good impromptu Seuss on almost any topic.) Nursery rhymes were a special favorite of my daughter, and we read one collection until it literally fell apart.

After you read each one a few thousand times, your mind begins to go numb, so you end up looking for patterns, embellishing, and inserting just plain goofy stuff.

This cartoon came after reading Little Miss Muffet and doing the Itsy Bitsy Spider finger play. I quickly ran into my office, wrote it down, and then played Spiderman riding My Little Pony to the circus.

My days are nothing if not eclectic.
