December 3, 2016 = One of the Greatest Days of my Life
The day starts by going out to a nice breakfast at the neighborhood sports bar with my adorable wife. Already the day is sweet.
After that, my dear wife and I went to a special event that happened at Seeds for Autism near downtown Phoenix. It's a great organization. They bring out the best from their students, and it showed. We got some treats and some of the students taught us how to make our own Christmas Tree Ornaments. We made jokes about burnt cookies and superheroes. And, we walked out with some pretty great purchases as well. Already the day is heartwarming.
Then I had a couple of hours to do some fun cartooning work! This day is already fulfilling.
Next, my adorable wife and I go to a birthday party, not just any birthday party... it's the second birthday of our oh-so-cute twin nieces! We got to see lots of family and three of our nieces! Sweet treats, toys, a bouncy house were also involved! Already the day is amazing.
Evening comes. I prepare my space-alien puppet and suit up as "Jolly the Elf" for Chandler's holiday light parade. I got to be in the parade with my buddies from ImprovMania. The folks that perform there are just amazing people and great friends. And, many of the ImprovManiacs brought their adorable families. Those little kids said or did something funny or cute like every half-minute. I sat in the trunk of the ImprovMania car with the puppet. Dave drove the car getting the enormous chants and cheers from thousands upon thousands of smiling attendees of the parade. Then as the car drove by the crowd got a second little piece of humor when they saw me with the puppet. Watching the faces, young and old, light up when they saw me was a true joy. The evening was a blast!
Night has fallen. I pick up my wonderful wife to do an improv show at the Torch Theatre. We see many of our best friends there. We put on a great show that got howls of laughter. This whole day and night was so, so great!
Not everyday can be this perfect. Yet, this one was. Thank you December 3, 2016 and thank you to everyone who was a part of it!
Now, here's a randumb cartoon that I drew about 4-5 years ago.
