So that was my first attempt at correcting a big ol' mistake of mine from the past, the GGaR past, where Lillian had ordered an orange juice at Jo's and it was alcoholised, making it seem like Jo had spiked her drink. (in the strip above it makes it rather seem like he thought Lillian wanted the ""Orange Juice"" special, so makes it a little better)
I was in my early 20s back then and didn't realize yet how absolutely awful spiking a drink without consent was, especially from the bartender himself!
Don't know if I told this story already, but way back then when I mentioned this "silly strip" to Jo himself (yes, Jo was a real dude, beard and viking and bartender and all!) he looked at me dead serious and said "Of course I would never spike someone's drink." like... did you really think it would be okay for me to do so? and I had to sit back and question myself for a bit there 'cause I hadn't realized how serious it was.
I grew up just a lil' bit that day. But I had much more growing up to do still :D
And hey, the fourth and last book of Go Get a Roomie! is still going strong for its crowdfunding, if you haven't yet checked it out, here's the link!
--> This is a rerun of the finished webcomic Go Get a Roomie! You can find these two strips in the old archive >here<!
