hi, stumbled upon your blog, n am glad to have done so.. my talent in art has been quite limited, the only thing i can make well is human faces.. so im just blown away at how well uve presented the entire story! you're so immensely talented!

Peggy said...

I love coming here to read these! (I secretly hoped you really did "spill" on the guy...) I also thoroughly enjoyed the Phoebe story, so cute (I have a kind of rowdy cat here, too...but doesn't hide and seek...)

bobbie said...

Hello again.
Yes, like Peggy, I sort of wished you had spilled too. But I suppose you did the best thing. He'd BETTER pay it!
Loved seeing you dripping onto your good work outfit.

Terry said...

darlin', where's the pain and hardship section of your bill?

Sandpiper said...

I love this!! You are so good at this and make me smile every time! :)

Dahlink,
You just get better and better. I really like the expressive quality of the faces. The frames are new. How do you like them? I LOVED seeing you splash him with the mocha latte.

Another amazing series of photos! But this is exactly why I don't drink Coffee!

Mary said...

LOL! You crack me UP! I so love the way you tell a human story with such humor. Honest and real. I need to visit here more often when I need some Crayons :o)

My jaw dropped for a moment when I thought you actually had splashed the coffee back on him. Got me. Too funny.

Selma said...

Don't you hate when things like that happen? Great story. Sorry your outfit was ruined, it looked fabulous!

Suzy said...

I'm so glad you didn't say, "Oh, that's OK," when he "offered" to pay the dry cleaning bill. My favorite frame is the seeming non sequitor about how he wore his sunglasses. You nailed it!

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

I knew you didn't throw the drink on him, you're too nice to do that. Now me on the other hand....

ellen said...

Well, what can I say that others haven't said before me...adoration and enjoyment for what you do and the expressions you are able to convey..Wow..
Now as a person from the country under house arrest..I do not and cannot relate to all of the designer coffee spills.
Thank you for such a wonderful site and visit as always.

Ed said...

I don't like the way he wore his sunglasses either!

Sacred Suzie said...

Oh dear Caroline, that's awful. I hope your days have been better since.

brucesc said...

Sandpiper sent me here and I'm so glad she did. I love the humor in your wonderfully illustrated stories! I'm linking your blog on mine.

Lana Gramlich said...

Gads! You had me thinking you actually got him back! I was thinking, "Oh no she DIDN'T," but what I was feeling was, "you GO girl!" *LOL* Sorry for the hassle. I think sometimes that imagining retribution (like this,) can preventing us from acting on it. Or else we'd all be in BIG trouble.

Ginnie said...

Oh, Caroline, that was just great. There is a fine line between how we act and how we'd like to act !!
Just think...you can do all the acting out that you want via your blog...and we, your viewers, are the ones who enjoy it.

This also reminds me of a time when a man cut in front of me at the drive in line at a coffee shop in Canada. I was thoroughly annoyed, but when I got around to the pay window, the woman there told me that he was sorry for having done it & that he'd paid for my order in full. I instantly felt like a heel for being annoyed to begin with.

The other day my now-fluent (but still learning the idioms) 10 year old daughter told me that she "must have slept in the wrong bed." It took me a minute, but when I recognized her distress at feeling out of sorts, we sat down and, even though we're normally like Dagwood in the morning, we had a few minutes of meditation until she felt that she slept in the right bed, and the rest of her day was great.
I love your work, m'dear. (And I, too, almost wish you'd splashed him...)

ROFL - love the revenge fantasy :) Being a peaceful citizen you did the right thing instead :) What a lousy thing to happen to such a cute outfit, did you day get any better as time passed?
