For all the stereotypes involving hair, you'd think there'd at least be a few regarding people who drive windowless white vans. ...hang on a minute

This almost wasn't going to be a comic, but a few things lately reminded me of the idea for the strip, and I figured that there couldn't be a better time to draw it! (Especially as it may act as a nice lead in to next week's comic!)

One thing that reminded me was that apparently someone asked whether or not I get much flack for having long ginger hair.
The answer being not really; this incident is pretty much the long and short of it (though there are the occasional drunks who seem to get bored/impressed easily), and happened sometime probably around 6-12 months ago! So my memory is a little hazy, but I do remember 3 things:

1) thinking it was a really nice day
2) wondering if my hair really did instill an existentially shattering amount of unease in some people, and
3) giggling to myself and thinking that might make an amusing comic

Apologies for how late this strip is though; it would have been up only a little bit late, but then my tablet started acting up. Back to drawing with pen and paper for next week!
