I was hit with a guard tube once, and yes, they do hurt. No, It wasn’t a girl that hit me and it wasn’t even a reaction to something I said. A coworker and I were rough-housing between downtime because no one was in the pool. If you want to keep a guy out of trouble, just keep him occupied, even if that means going to the pool to swim during the slowest part of the day. You will be doing your town a great service just by doing this. When guys are bored out of our skulls, we will start entertaining ourselves with dumb games like throwing bricks at our heads, holding our breath or hitting each other with guard tubes.
Starting this week, I have eight cartoons about Thomas and Jonathan who are working on English projects for school. While we don’t know the scope of these projects, we do know what they are studying. We can imagine that Thomas is writing a paper and it appears Jonathan may be acting for his project. So for the next few weeks, you will be entertained by lifeguards quoting 14th and 16th century literature on the pool deck. I love some of the gags that I created for these strips. Several of them were inspired by my own study of Chaucer and Shakespeare. Enjoy!
