But it doesn’t have to be competitive. Great doodle. Thanks. To be shared definitely . . . there’s fine line between one-upping and being competitive- it’s like playing in a jam session -with some people it’s fun – everybody playing off each other- and everybody wins…. in other situations people just want to try and be the ‘best’ OR ‘the most imprressive’ . . . there’s no such thing really . . and there’s certainly no fun to be had like that. . Point captured neatly by Gary Larson in one of his ‘Far Side’ cartoons. Two pirates sitting in a bar. One has a peg leg, the other has peg head. Peg Leg is saying “Well, that’s a pretty good story, but let me tell you about this . . .” I’m a great fan of Larson. Particluar favourites? ‘Bummer of a birthmark, Hal!’ – ‘The real reason the dinosaurs died out.’ – and the standing cows shouting ‘Car coming!’ I like the new doodle. Very Dr. Seuss-ish. Thanks. Several people have commented on it . . . you’re absolutely right about Dr. Seuss . . . I though it had a sort of familiar look but I couldn’t put my paw on it . . . Any thoughts?
