The Yearbook Part 6 by deaddays The Yearbook Part 6 by deaddays
Hey buds,
Hot damn it's late! How my body is still functioning is a mystery to science. But while I'm up, I might as well go ahead and post the new DD Yearbook strip! Yep, it's part 6 fo' dat ass! That was gangsta lingo. Are gangstas still cool?

Welp, I guess you can say this particular strip stems from the traumatic childhood experience of going blind. Not completely, just enough that I began to need glasses. As a kid, I had 20/20 vision right up until I didn't. Seemed to happen overnight, really. One day I was spotting pennies on the ground 50 feet away, and the next day I was having trouble reading the goddamn overhead. I've been wearing specs since the 6th grade and as a whole, it hasn't been that bad. They added intrigue to my high school persona and chicks have been generally attracted to them. But, man, in grade school, it was a dif-fer-ent story. I guess it didn't help that I happened to pick the stupidest, ugliest glasses they had. Stupid giant frames.

Naturally, I couldn't give Blondie glasses permanently, because, well, he doesn't wear glasses. If anything, Mr. Brown has worn glasses in the past [link] (now uses contact lenses, by the way). So I gave the kid the ol' lazy eye! He wore 'em for 2 weeks and it fixed him right up. As for Brown's headgear, maybe I'll touch on that in the next flashback series...

Speaking of, there's only 2 more parts left in this Yearbook series! You guys have been great about letting me know how much you're digging this series! Thanks for all the comments and emails! Thanks for reading foos! Hollah! (Again, is are gangstas still cool? Because I'll totally stop if they're not)
-John

Good times, good times.

I had to get glasses in 7th grade, and I've not been back to the eye doctor since. By now, my perscription is retardedly off. I need new fake eyes.

This series has rocked ass. Especially the console war one. TO THE CHEVY!

But the link to that old strip left me wondering.. Why hasn't "Blondie" (or guy #2 as I like to think of him) ever tried to use Mr. Brown's glasses to impress Simone? WHY!? Although I suppose he'd have less time for his little furry "schmoopy-schmoopy" if Simone ever did give him the time of day..

I forget where I was going with all this.. So.. uh.. Happy Thanksgiving or something.. :D

Good question DC! But if you read the rest of that series, Blondie fell and injured himself something fierce. I guess it kinda soured him on the whole GLASSES thing. Not to mention all of Brown's hazing.

Aw....if it makes you feel better, I've been wearing glasses since I was in the first grade. Then there's my brothers...who have like 19/18 vision. Bastards.

God, I got my glasses when I was around 8 years old. I was never told what perfect vision was, so I couldn't compare it to my shit-vision. I burned ants with my coke-bottle lenses.
