the big boy panties









my friend Adam told me about how he got his first pair of big boy underwear 

in my family,
whether you are man
or woman
your underwear is always Panties.



"pahnties."


"punties"

"pohnties"



and Adam thought,
my God, HaShem,
what a luxury, 
to have big boy panties 



panties so adult,
they're already pants.





he did notice that his shirt was like super long that day
or maybe his adult pants were too short

adulthood is so taxing 







but adulthood
is also the greatest gift 

and so

embrace 




so adult adam went to school





and life was good
and pleasant
and ready




until it was like





"ADAM, WHERE ARE YOUR PANTS?"





adulthood is also hard
and confusing



to be continued.

  2. Poor little guy.
    Once I wore slippers to school instead of shoes, but I have never forgotten pants.
    PS. Everything you draw is adorable.
