A plant is growing inside me.

Hi all, Being the first time we meet, I will try to contain myself and not scare you off. However yes, as you’ve read from the title, this story is about me believing a plant was growing inside me. If you do not consider this weird enough let me just anticipate that I have used this belief also to hit on girls and let me assure that asking them to check out your plant is not the best way to hook up…especially when you’re both 7 and their mother is standing beside her. This story begins in a very simple way. When I was seven years old I started to grow a passion for eating fruit seeds. The fact that I could die suffocating (at least so I believed) if it blocked in my trachea made the entire challenge more and more thrilling as it was some kind of game between life and death. One day I was proceeding in such breathtaking action when suddenly my mother growled out of nowhere. FotoEsempio FotoEsempio 2 She told me that I must not eat the seeds and in order to ensure that I would respect such order she invented one of her oddly terrifying stories. (She did this a lot, you’ll here more about that in the future) a plant will grow piantabocca She told me that if I ate a seed, a plant would start growing inside me, starting from the depths of my stomach (saying it started from buttocks would have been quite disturbing) and finishing through my mouth (as seen in the drawing above [I am so good at drawing {and using brackets}]). This brought me to consider the fable: Jack and the beanstalk and of the plant which grew from the magic beans and obviously. being a kid, I applied it to the freakish my mother had just told me. jack&beanplantinmouth The magic plant which would have grown from inside me, would have obviously reached the terrible giant living in the clouds above (As I am writing this, I realize how weird it sounds, so please bare with me and don’t run away). As in Jack and the beanstalk, the giant would have started climbing down the plant… giant And down into my mouth… giantinmouth Already at the time I was growing a striving passion for diets and healthy eating for I realized quite quickly that with a giant in my stomach, I would have become fat, I mean very fat. (Such a genius) fat Until I would have exploded like a time bomb (this is so incredibly realistic, its crazy) boom On the plus side, I began to use this “plant inside me” to hit on girls. wanna see ma plant “Wanna see ma plant” was my hit line, you gotta admit its quite innovative. However, it never worked mainly because the mother of dem girls hearing a 7 year old boy say this went crazy and intervened in fury, believing I was about to show off my tool.


So yes, thank you mum for terrifying me but also thank you for the hit line, without those mothers I would have been a top player.

  7. Your cartooning is great. But the story is a bit long. I think they say you have about two seconds on the internet and if you can’t catch someone’s attention, you’re done. Then, once you have their attention, you have another minute, tops. Pare your stories down to their funniest core and you’re golden.

  8. I like your pictures and your whimsical style. I’m a “Grammar Nazi” with an eye for details, so I noticed that you spelled “bear” incorrectly (as in ‘bare with me’). My other bit of advice is to tighten it up a bit so that your brackets and asides don’t interfere with the momentum of your story. Free advice…take it or leave it. 🙂


  9. you aren’t alone – I just never told anyone. Its that vivid imagination thing.
    Your art goes well in emphasizing your story and the first person does as well.
    Someone else said keep at it – it really is the best way to grow and to improve.
    One piece of advice for bloggers who are writers – keeps the stories short and succint 750 is really a max to keep people interested.
    Thanks for inviting me
    I am waiting to publish an ongoing blog story that has a similar feel Check it out
