I drew this comic many years ago. I always knew that posting this on the internet would possibly open up a bucket of worms. People I knew back in my home town will be able to read it, even the actual bully himself. But I decided to let the eraser bits fall where they may and posted it anyway. I figured that the lug from long ago was still stupid enough not to have figured out the internet. Well, I found a picture of him on a social-networking site and boy, does he look like he’s lead a rough life. One year older than me and he’s fat, bald, and quite ugly. Serves him right.
Sometimes I find myself thinking, “I wonder if I would ever be able to forgive him [and his cronies] if he were to apologize to me.” I guess it would have to be determined by the way in which he offered his apology and which words he used. Again, this all depends on if he would even apologize in the first place. He could still be that despicable, mean, worthless low-life that made my Junior High and High School years so painful. For some reason, I think he still is and I never expect to hear from him in any respect.
Some of you may be saying to me through your computer screen, “Dude, that was so long ago. Why are you still thinking about it? You should just get over it.”
To that, I quote the great Bill Hicks, “People tell me, ‘Bill, let it go. The Kennedy assassination was years ago. It was just the assassination of a President and the hijacking of our government by a totalitarian regime — who cares? Just let it go.’ I say, ‘All right then. That whole Jesus thing? Let it go! It was 2,000 years ago! Who cares?’”
