The comic will be delayed a while longer due to my utter stupidity.|
A few weeks ago I bought a new camera to replace my old 2 megapixel toy. Now I have a 7.1 megapixel & optical zoom pride and joy. Well, I haven't given it a proper trial yet, so at 11:20am today I was heading out to the local iced tea shop and decided "Why not bring the camera and snap a few shots along the way?"
You see... your friendly neighbourhood foxaroo has never learned to do anything in moderation. A short distance along the footpath I thought, "Hey! I could photograph this... and that... and that.... and that..."
"This" begins with a location some distance off the beaten track, and "that" involves a detour which in fact is entirely in the opposite direction to where I should have been going. Presumably anyone accustomed to driving a car would recognise the excessive walking, but one thing I share with the kangaroo species is the blind instinct of wanderlust and the legs that support it. Another shared trait is a skeletal structure barely able to support my (overweight) body.
At 2:30pm I staggered home, aching in every bone, and would have been dehydrated if I'd not finally visited the sought-after tea shop.
I'd post some of the photos, but I'd need to upload them to photobucket and it's 10:20pm now. Maybe later in the week.
So, for the next 48 hours all my friends are welcome to reply to this post beginning with any of the following words: "Cretin, Dimwit, Fool, Half-wit, Idiot, Imbecile, Jerk, Moron, etc"
