on disappointment.

Dinosaur Comics did guest week last week and I was most looking forward to Randall Munroe, of xkcd. It seems obvious that this was the be expected, since he was held off until Friday, AKA, the good spot. But his guest spot was the weakest of the five! I know, I know, there's good, clever things about the comic, but it didn't really hit me the way I was hoping for it to. I guess this proves the redundancy of expectation: look forward to something and it'll only disappoint you. On the other hand, if you go in with nothing, you'll almost always be pleasantly surprised. Which is how I found myself upon reading this random encounter with Mr. Munroe in a grocery store and the wonderful products that came of it.
