I'm at home looking over the portfolio of a male babysitter. I'm pretty impressed by the drawings and comic sketches and would like to work with him on a comic strip. When I approach the (female) artist and suggest working together on a comic strip, she is excited and suggests a western like Rawhide. "I was thinking more like something funny & political, somewhere between Calvin & Hobbes & Doonesbury." I suggest. She looks skeptical and asks how political it will be, "birth control and everything?" she asks. I tell her it won't be THAT political. She goes outside to smoke and I want to keep talking to her but she won't open the window so we can hear each other.
