What happens in New Jersey...gets re-posted

Today I'm doing a re-posting of a comic I did a few months ago. Trust me, I have very good reasons! This incident took place at the same conference as the text-penis I told you about yesterday. It was a wild conference. Let this be a lesson to you, DO NOT MISS THE NEXT AUTHORS AFTER DARK CONFERENCE! You miss the best stuff if you do.

I went to a dinner with Bronwyn Green, one of my roomies for the conference. While there, I had an epic misunderstanding...















There's a happy ending to this story. I posted this comic on my blog and sent a link to the real Louise Fury. She loved it. She re-posted it, sent links, tweeted about it, and then commented that it was the BEST submission EVAR. I now have her permission to submit anything I want to her. Told you it ended well.

Plus, she then requested a copy of this strip so that she could print it off and frame it for her office. :D Don't get any better than THAT!!!

My sincerest thanks to Tracy and the Desert Island Keepers for inviting me to post these past three days. I've had a blast!

That was a great comic. Keep them coming you are a natural!

Tracy said...

LOL Omg Mia you're so funny. You can't say "Can I submit to you" to just anyone, ya know. Hopefully you've learned your lesson. :)

You're very welcome, Mia and you are welcome back at any time!

Mia Watts said...

@Chris-I'm becoming a pro at laughing at myself. ;)

@Molly-definitely. I have that open invitation even if it's a year from now. :)

@Jessica-I put them up on my blog periodically. I've been laboring over the tale of my move. Come check the blog out sometime! MiaWatts(dot)blogspot(dot)com

@Tracy-I'm so glad you weren't disappointed. I had such a great time here and you have fantastic readers. Let me know if you ever need to fill a spot.

@D.L-OMG! I thought I'd addressed your comment already!!!! Thank you and yes, me too. The part of the story I didn't tell here was that I was part of a panel the next day. The Sex Therapist showed up and was flirting with me so badly that my buds came over and said, "Hey, Mia, you reeeeeally oughta clear that up." So, in the part of the presentation where we tell a little about ourselves, I explained the hilarious confusion the night before, thinking she could gracefully back out, no problem.

BUT she spoke up and said, "Aw, and here I thought, I still have it! I'm nearly 50 and I go to a conference where people are throwing themselves at me for sexual favors!"

OMG! The room exploded with laughter. She was a great sport about it and I have a story for the rest of my life. LOL.
