<<First Latest>>
View Transcript Grace: You seemed... out of it tonight, what's up?
David: *sigh* ...I was thinking about my grandparents...

Grace: *EW WHAT THE FUCK*!?
David: NOT LIKE THAT I SWEAR TO GOD NOT LIKE THAT!
I-it's just...

David: ...mom and dad brought them over to my birthday dinner, and my grandma just... isn't doing too well...
...like, at *all*, her basic functions just seem to be slipping away more and more.
She's not as there as she was five years ago.
Hell, she's not even as there as she was this time *last* year.

David: I don't know if my parents were old enough to realize what was going on when *their* grandparents died, but *I* am.
It's scary and depressing, and the worst part is, eventually I'm gonna have to see my *own* parents slip away like that!
...and arguably that's gonna hurt even more.

Grace: But David, that... won't be for another 30 years at *least*!

Seeing people you've been around all your life start to slip away to shit like alzheimer's is pretty fucking depressing and, yeah, kinda scary, and really makes you fear what's going to happen to, say, your parents or hell, even yourself when that time comes. If that time ever comes.


On a lighter note, I'm proud of Grace's boobs. And that li'l peek of David's cock, the first cock ever shown in the strip.

1/8/2023, 5:26 PM Yeah, wow, some hard hitting stuff. Can't lie, I do think about these sorts of things myself. Mostly with my own parents now since most of my grandparents are dead. I know there's still some years to go, but it's hard to think about. I feel David on this one. And yeah, this is just something you have to deal with when getting older. Most people do.
1/8/2023, 5:30 PM We all think about these kinds of things at some point or another. The closer it hits home the more real it becomes.
