Friday Update: Every Day People
'Everyday' is an adjective that means commonplace or ordinary. But the 'Every Day People' to whom I'm dedicating this update are the exact opposite of that description; they're the totally rare and exceptional people who check in on 'Character Of The Day' every week day looking for a cartoon.
For sure, I definitely appreciate anyone who takes any time at all, whenever, to look at these drawings and jokes. But! The Every Day People deserve a special mention because they (you!) play an active role in making sure that there actually IS a daily cartoon to look at.
I love doing Character Of The Day, and I will always draw stuff no matter if anyone can see it or not, but sometimes it's all too easy to just tell myself "There's a million other things I should be doing that are probably more important than posting a cartoon to the Internet. Besides, the Internet's got enough going on. No one will miss it if a COTD doesn't appear."
But the thought that there's somebody, or even a handful of somebodies, out there who are waiting for a cartoon, who are expecting it, who will actually be disappointed if one doesn't show up at some point during the day, well, that thought more than any other is what keeps me drawing and posting, what keeps COTD ticking along and running smoothly, without disruption.
Every Day People, I salute you. Thanks for all your help in this endeavour.
Have a Good Friday, all! After today's cartoon, COTD will be back on Tuesday.
