This Nick Galifianakis cartoon was originally published on May 10, 2013 for the Carolyn Hax advice column in The Washington Post and other syndicated newspapers. The cartoon shows an older woman feeding pigeons in the park, increasingly content with her own company instead of the efforts, drama and obligations that come with keeping up any social structure.
