It’s so important to have a work buddy that has your back, your ear and most importantly your snacks.
Work buddies are a vital part of any office environment, and Rose is all about keeping her mental health in check, as well as ensuring a consistent supply of muffins, bagels and pretty much any carbohydrate-based mid-morning treats.
But let’s talk about porridge for a minute. Porridge is, frankly, too much work to deal with in the morning, there’s a lot of critical timing involved and I can barely keep my eyes open at that time of the day. However, porridge is also a great excuse to add absolutely tons of brown sugar on top! So overall I am pro any meal that involves brown sugar.
This comic also has my absolute favourite line in all of Rose so far, and you will get a lollipop if you guess which one it is!
I would totally eat all of that and no word of a lie I would not feel an ounce of shame about it. Garlic bread is the best type of bread, oh actually there’s sourdough bread, what if we got sourdough bread but put garlic on it? NOW WE’RE TALKING.
Actually while we’re here can we talk about risotto? The local place does an awesome pumpkin risotto, but sometimes there’s too much for one person – IF YOU’RE EATING IN POLITE COMPANY. True friends do not judge you on your risotto consumption!
If I had my own cooking show I make every episode about making curry because let’s face it, we need more curry in the world. Have a curry today!
This story was mostly inspired by the service station that I would make a habit of popping into after work every day. Well, not every day, just the days where I was having a hard time and hating my day job. So, yeah, every day. Anyway, I would go in and get some Freddo Frogs and geez do I love me some Freddo Frogs, they are great.
Until one day, the guy behind the counter said “yep, like clockwork, you’re getting Freddo Frogs” and he’d already rung up the till even before I had gone up to the counter!
I’ve never been back again.
ALSO: This strip guest stars Jeremy Noye, an awesome fellow who got himself a guest starring role in Rose just for backing me on Patreon! You can back me on Patreon right now for as little as $1 a month and get bonus comics, behind the scenes goodies not seen anywhere else and – wowie – even your face in an upcoming strip!
I think turning into a puppet would be amazing because everything you do would be hilarious. My favourite muppet from The Muppet Show was Fozzie Bear because he was always trying to be funny and boy howdy can I relate. I wish I was Fozzie, but let’s be honest I probably ended up more like Gonzo. Oh no does this mean I have to kiss chickens now? Eww.
