This gag really isn't too far from the truth. There's a lot of pollen in the air around here this time of year. One of my coworkers actually does buy her tissue at one of the warehouse stores and has a stack of boxes she keeps under her desk because she goes through them so quickly in the springtime.
I've been cartooning since I was a teenager, and have been published in magazines ranging from AASHTO Quarterly to the LDS Church magazines and several other periodicals, trade publications and newsletters.
