If my 12 year old loses his shoes in the house again, my head may explode. So instead of screaming like a banshee or grounding him until he's 73, I spent my morning playing around with an online comic strip creator. If the little widget fails to load the comic, you can see it here.
It's not the most original or creative thing in the world, but it was fun to put together and even this non-artist found it simple to do.
At any rate, it's better than *another* lecture.
