Once upon a time, there was a person who waited for everything to be perfect. The end.


This Nick Galifianakis cartoon was originally published on May 02, 2007 for the feature Carolyn Hax: Tell Me About It in The Washington Post and other syndicated newspapers. The illustration deals with how we distract ourselves from pulling the trigger or committing by spending our lives avoiding risk and preparing to live instead of actually living.
