Em oi! #444 and 445

B: Edgar, you just came in. You can't go out again just yet. 
Em: Is he okay?
B: I don't know.
(Dog stares steadfastly at B.)
Em: (from off) Maybe he ate something and his tum is upset...
(Dog continues staring.)
Narration: Swing into "our baby is sick" mode.
Em: Googling dog upset stomach treatments. 
B: Slept in guest room in case dog needed something in night.
Narration: The next morning...
Em: (walking down exterior steps, thinks) At least I can see if he's having blood in his--- oh.
(Dog with lightly chewed dead squirrel.)

As I sat down to put this up, I realized that #444 was only ever published on Instagram/Facebook, so here it is for posterity:

I was training for a 50k when I drew #444. Now I am not, because all the races are cancelled and we are sheltering at home. Somehow I am still tired. Today I got up at 5am, ran 9.8 miles, then after work took Hal on a walk that ended up with me carrying him on my back up two different hills. Well, how is your quarantine going?

I have actually been doing a lot of random things, including sketching, learning how to draw with pastels, writing more depressing prose poems, trying to edit my novella, and making an awesome podcast! You can check it out here: AskAMedievalist.com. New episodes on Thursdays, probably. We also have a Facebook group, which you can find by searching for Ask a Medievalist on Facebook.

Okay, I would like to keep chatting with you all, but 1/ I used all my wits writing the annotations to the AAM episodes, and 2/ this is getting in the way of my eating ice cream now. Check out the podcast and remember that this won’t last forever. Even though it might last a while longer.
