Only the nice ones but not to expensive.
My friends mom hugs random trees so she can “share her energy and good vibes from root to root.”
Are we including thorn bushes?
Wallace: “Spud was almost eaten by a rose bush. That was fun.”
Amelia: “Ahh, I missed that…?”
Kinda in a “mood” today aren’t we, little miss weathervane?
Amelia. That’s pretty sad. At least give them a "Hi Five ".
I agree! Wake up Amelia! Don’t start to be boring at your age.
And Spud’s all like – she put me first!
I love the artwork in this toon. You can almost feel the weather.
But she’s leaning against that tree root. Isn’t that half a hug?
Amelia – jerk girl
Why did I think of spongebob when reading this?
I tried to hug a tree but it just barked at me.
Wallace has a great outlook on life. Very upbeat. Amelia on the other hand is the foil. Spud? Spud sees a world that is out to kill him and he loves Amelia who would like to kill him.
Then my number is about 100……
I keep seeing a little optical illusion in the first panel. Spud’s shoes and the swirl make the rock look like it has a smiling face. I can’t help it—it’s there every time I look.
Amelia will one day become: Queen of the on-line trolls! Better make friends with her now!
On the one hand, I can see Amelia’s position – trees are for climbing, or sitting under, or making things out of – hugging? Not so much. On the other, finding peace and connecting to nature can be challenging these days – for some hugging a tree is just the trick.
I love how the drawing shows the effect of the wind – the flags, the tree, their hair!
Today’s Bliss is also on the theme of tree-hugging.
I’m too self-conscious to embrace a tree. But I will give the occasional thoughtful pat.
According to the internet trees and shrubs are different things – so no Wallace, we shouldn’t be counting shrubs to provide Amelia and accurate count.
i wanted to see how they were going to get Spud’s foot unstuck from the handicap toilet!
A homage to Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, I’m sure.
Notice how Wallace answers without assuming Amelia’s question is a sarcastic jab. On the other hand, Amelia can be quite sarcastic. :D
Hey I’m… barnacle boy (cries)
