The awkward meeting, the stereotypical plot device of many, many rom-com films.

It has been one of those weeks, which is why this strip is being posted on a Sunday. This one was inspired by an old episode of “The Big Bang Theory”, where Penny is doing laundry (yes, I know there are many episodes of Penny doing laundry, so I can’t really specifically point to one episode). Thought it was a good time to introduce the character I based on the late actor Lee Thompson Young.

As for the song, I was looking for one that’s has good lyrics and funny, but still feels like a song Alex would be listening to. I came across Jonathan Coulton’s “First of May” by accident at the 11th hour. Search for it and take a listen if you don’t already know the song.
