Not only is this a true story, but this has happened more than once.
Because you just know I'll end up forgetting about an update one day, I've decided to start writing these comic posts ahead of time and then setting them to post on the correct days. Less work for me, on time comics for you. It's a win-win situation.
On a side note there is indeed a painting of fish in my bathroom for some reason, however, they are not piranhas. I'm just as disappointed by this fact as you are.
