An “Aged Anecdote” is a story I wrote as a child, and over the years, I’ve shared them on my blog and offered my satirical analyses. This week, I took an old favorite Aged Anecdote and turned it into a comic! While the drawings are all new, the story is, for the most part, true to how I wrote it in 2004 at age nine.

N.T. Ed and Margaret Decide to Have an Autumn Party
Ned Theodore Ed, skull in the palm of his bony hand, looked out the window at the darkening early evening, and sighed.
Margaret noticed N.T. Ed’s shoulders silently heave and slump (for this was the way N.T. “sighed”) and paused her knitting. “What was that for?” Margaret asked, tilting her head and looking at N.T. over the top of her wire-rim reading glasses. They were sitting in Margaret’s living room, N.T. on the couch, and Margaret in her recliner; the lamps on her end tables produced an orangey, cozy hue as the light flickered off her hardwood interior.
