Comic Connection: Laughing Along With Relatable Art

By Kanyi M

Do you know how there are those things we do that no one seems to understand but us? For example, how can you explain the appeal and satisfaction of sucking on a pen or pencil? And why do you feel compelled to touch wet paint to confirm it’s still wet?

These comics by Sabincomics touch on those mundane things we do.

Thinking that everyone is judging us

Sure, you’re the starring player in the play of your life, but not everyone is judging you by your performance. Your friend doesn’t care that you accidentally mispronounced a word or stumbled over your sentences while talking.

Your coworkers are not secretly critiquing every move you make in the office. And that stranger you passed by on the street? They probably didn’t even notice you.

Not sure of how to act in social situations

If you’re like us, you probably feel uncomfortable in certain social situations. For instance, birthday parties. What should we be doing while our friends are singing happy birthday to us? Should we sing along with them? That one seems a little awkward.

Well, some of us don’t know how to act when it comes to holidays. In this world, there are two types of people only – those who overly prepare for holidays and those who leave everything to the last minute.

We’re grumpy when we’re hungry

All financial advisors ask you not to go grocery shopping when you’re hungry for a reason.

They tell you that it’s the worst possible time to buy snacks because you’ll get caught up in the moment, lose your common sense and end up spending more money than you planned.

The mirror and the front camera seem to disagree

Taking sexy pictures is hard. You have to test the right angle, take several shots and choose one that you think is flattering enough.

And then when you show your friends, they’re like, “What are you showing us? Your face looks really weird.” The mirror, though, sees things differently. It always shows you how great you look.
