1590. Make Yourself Indispensable

Share this comic!

As I mentioned yesterday, today’s comic is a little darker than usual.

Maybe it’s because I’m the oldest I’ve ever been, or maybe it’s because I’m in the longest romantic relationship I’ve ever been in, but I’ve been thinking about mortality and how being indispensible is scary because it means you are setting up the people around you to get hurt.

I suppose I’m betraying a pretty big ego here!

“Indispensable, Sanjay?” you say “Surely you just mean ‘pretty important’.”

That’s a good point.

Being pretty important is scary too.
