I sure did a lot of thought bubbles in this game. See you next time!
Do I REALLY suck? That's up to you to decide.

I googled for a random word generator and then made a sentence from the result.
It'll all end in tears, it probably already has.

thank you! that's kind of you to say. my general approach to my sentences was that each one should feel like either the first or last sentence in a chain -- the first sentence is never a laundry list of precise details, and the last sentence doesn't bear the burden of being the thing someone else will use to draw a picture, which makes jumping to conclusions about what you're looking at a lot easier. describing what you see in the most literal sense is a lot less interesting to me than describing the mood that it evokes. like with the horse one, I knew the horse was there, but I saw the horse as one element in a cohesive whole, and it seemed more important to describe that whole (bizarre future game show) than to get into the specifics (human facing off against the horse and the horse is winning, glyphs in various languages on a board, etc.).

I agree with leaving out the glyphs, but I feel like the horse should have continued.

Fun fact: You can use the declining effort levels in my pictures to chart a path perfectly from "Everything is normal" to "Aaa baby is almost here" to "baby is here LET ME SLEEP".
"I used to think that votes equaled pressure, too, back when I was alive. I've learned a lot since then. You know what does equal pressure? Pressure. Pressure equals pressure. Crazy, huh?"
