What if He Gives You…Flowers?

The last Quick Fix cartoon answers what you probably ask yourself every day: Should you write that ebook? (The answer might surprise you.)

For any cartoon you enjoy, you’re invited to share it anyplace except Pinterest. And thank you for sharing every week on Facebook and Twitter.

Today’s cartoon is about sex and acronyms. Of course, the woman in the cartoon is referring to STDs – Sexually Transmitted Diseases,  not to be confused with FTD (Florists Transworld Delivery) and their famous flower bouquets, which the man is thinking about.

I don’t want to go to Downer Town in the middle of summer vacation, so I’ll just say that STDs seem to be up in 2015. Rhode Island blames Tinder. 🙂 Now, go have fun, kids.

Next up: a cartoon about cats. It’s about time.
