Life and Death Homework
Life is too short to do both homework AND comics … So I will do BOTH at SAME TIME!
This story documents near-death experience I had last week AND it practices past tense and animate possessive form in basic Slovak. Translations follow each image….
1. Comfortable was rabbit´s bed. 2. But rabbit´s class started at half to 9! 3. Rabbit´s hotel was full. 4. In office, male cat´s face was ugly.
1. Hostel´s staircase was long… 2. And longer still path of Municipal Botanical Gardens. 3. Electric tram of Friday came not early. 4. Rabbit´s watch shows half to nine (8.30am).
1. Horse´s car waited for rabbit. 2. Bell of electric tram sounded. 3. (NONE)
1. (NONE) 2. (NONE) 3. By luck, electric tram did not flatten rabbit´s head.
It is not often in my life that I have come that close to a violent messy end. Somehow drawing it out in cartoon animal form has actually helped me process the experience…
