Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal by Zach Weinersmith for August 24, 2015
I was walking today with my baby sister, and we went near a softball game. I realize I could lower the chance of us getting hit by a softball if I sped up and got away from the game quicker. But, then I realized that if I sped up and then got hit, the hit would be my fault. Even though speeding up with the rational choice, if I had sped up and she got stuck, her pain would be the result of my choice. Somehow, change was a decision, but staying the same was a non-decision. So, I stayed the same. I took the wrong action, but I never risked feeling guilty or ashamed or foolish. I guess what I'm saying, dad, is I understand why you won't go back to get your degree. Low blow, kid. Low blow.
