Hey, guys. I need a break from the comic about 1-2 weeks. Or whenever I'm ready to come back.

Here's a little bonus info because I think someone asked about our Vietnamese names? Usually when I have someone in the comic say "brother" they're usually calling me "Anh Teo", based on nicknames we had growing up. Our dad gave us most of them, haha.

Anyways, for the sake of confusion I just opted to put "brother" everywhere instead. Since the summer was really busy and I need a break after getting back to work and Connor going to school this is the closest chance I'll get to have some down time, haha.

I'll see you folks. Hope those of you who are back at school are having a good time.

You need to take a break, David? :< I hope you and your family are doing okay! ;A; Take the time you need to take!
Me and the rest of your readers will certainly wait for your return! ^_^/ Take it easy, David! You deserve it! \>A</
The nicknames for your family are adorable! How Miriam and Connor acts around you are so cute too. =>w<= One of my brothers likes to read and he tells me very random facts too, lol!


Breaktime is the best time

Hi! I really like your comic! So good I' ve read it all in one go!!! I really like the relationship with your siblings too... The way you're all so close reminds me of a great friend of mine... He has a responsible and quite traditional big brother like Bernard (and he's a doctor too!) and his sister reminds me a lot of Miriam (minus the BL stuff, I think?)... Well, all this to tell you, I reeeeeally relate to your comic (though your family is very different from my own) and think you're very brave too tell us so much about yourself and the ones you love! Thank you!!!

@IEatTacosForDinner: Eh? What heritage?

Thanks! I did enjoy my break. I really did need it, haha. Spent the time playing a lot of pokemon with Miriam, haha.

@everyone: Haha, thanks everybody. I had a good time.

@mikemacdee: Ah! They could be cuter.

@Mavi: Haha, we're fine. No drama or anything it's just the summer is usually busier for me than when I'm actually at work with people constantly asking I come visit and whatnot so I just wanted some time where I could just really do nothing.

Also because I don't have time to play video games all summer. Haha.

Haha, thanks.

Haha, your brother too, huh?

@Maria: Oh, hey. Thanks for the comment.

Haha. Sounds like a fun family, your friend. Wait, she doesn't like BL? So she's nothing like Miriam? I'm kidding, I'm kidding. Sorry, Miriam.

Ah, I'm not that brave, and thanks.

@roxjey: Oh, hey. That reminds me of "Dear Photograph". I can only read that blog for so long before I start weeping like a baby.

But yeah, that's neat, thanks for sharing.

Really makes me miss Vietnam, haha. A home I've never lived in.

I mean ANY heritage. A language to learn, stories of other countries. I think families with history are lucky.

Pokemon is a good way to spend breaks! Welcome back David (:


daviddoesntgetit September 18th, 2012, 2:01 pm

@IEatTacosForDinner: Ah, well. Everyone has a heritage so long as they have family, right? I guess American who end up getting mixed have a hard time tracing their lineage, haha.

And thanks!

oh my god thats so cute! i think this page is one of my favorites. personally my mom gave us names that couldnt be shortened into nicknames. so i tend to make up giberish to call my siblings
