i always try to tie the comic strip to a specific aspect of a relationship.  this week, it’s gonna be a stretch.  i think it’s very important to know and really understand what the person you’re talking to is listening for.  don’t get me wrong, i hope your close friends and relationships truly listen to just hear you.  but i think more often than not, people you talk to are either preoccupied or have a predisposition.  so, to really get through to them, you’ve got to speak to them on their terms, sometimes in their language.  in this case, Finn was expressing himself when he should be doing what the rancher asked him to do.

and yeah, i just wanted to draw a giant bat symbol.
