My life in one panel:  
The last panel of today's Shortpacked! sort of capturtes how I've been feeling lately. I need to snip it and resize it for an icon, if the text will still be readable at 100x100.

"We're finally growing up?"

"Screw that. We're finally catching up to all those bastards we know on Facebook who are having their third kid."

I need some kind of tag to indicate "This is a good thing, really!"

Animate the text and it'll fit :O

Hmm. Doing it in one frame isn't gonna be practical I think. I tried enlarging the text a little before final resizing, then unsharp masking before saving, and... well...

Here's my attempt:

Shortpacked - Catching up icon

I retyped the text, drew new speech balloons and tweaked the pixels a bit.

And then, there are us 40somethings that haven't even gotten married or STARTED our real careers yet. You're doing better then I am in that department!

Am I?

With the divorce, it feels like I've been lapped a few times while I was stuck in the pit.

I like my job, but it's still too soon to determine if it's a career yet.

I certainly hope that the job works out for you!

And as for being lapped...yeah, but no more then I've been. I disagree with the old saw -- having loved and lost, or never having loved at all...they BOTH suck goat balls.
