Comic Strip Marathon: Post #37 Eyes wide shut

Stuck in a netherworld where you cannot sleep yet cannot stay awake, I’m here to report that the comedy show continues past hour 36 inside the Comic Strip Live. Tom Shillue’s easygoing storytelling manner is easy on the ears, but for someone who’s been up this long, perhaps a bit too easy on the ears, and I see little of him from 7:53 to 8:23 a.m. Though every time my eyes reopen, only a couple of minutes have passed. Same goes for Carmen Lynch from 8:24 to 8:47 a.m., although I have no difficulties hearing her talk about her modeling career that wasn’t. Pat Dixon, again in a suit, comes next, but I have issues to attend to, and I’m only back here at the keyboard for Dixon’s closing bathroom humor and the start of Lee Camp’s politically-minded routine. Outside on the sidewalks of Second Avenue, Upper East Siders are getting their morning exercise or on their way to work. Time for another Red Bull, anyone?
