When I face a pressing issue, I quickly manage to come up with an alternate, perhaps even imaginary problem. It's a nice distraction to keep myself from addressing the actual problem at hand.
I may be the only person doing this, but I don't think so.
An example: "I want to become a better photographer" quickly leads to "I need a better camera" because "I need to take a photography course and figure out image composition" is a solution which requires much more work.
What makes this strip is the second panel. The silent stare where Andrew briefly contemplates the thought: "Is he putting me on?" Then, of course, he proceeds to rip me a new one.
Ever since I ironed out the crucial flaw in Andrew's character design, it's become much more fun to draw him.
