Although when I originally started Angry Pear I was very adamant about NEVER drawing anything but pears, I have since decided that some things (irritations and annoyances mostly) just can’t be expressed with pears. Or, I guess I should say, they cannot be expressed clearly enough with pears. So I have decided to occasionally post a comic or drawing that isn’t a pear.
Wearing glasses in the winter is annoying.

I don’t mind you stepping away from pears from time to time. I think as long as you keep things like your adorable twitter icon as a widget people who stumble upon your blog will get the awesomeness behind it. I, for one, love this non-pear drawing, I think I know a few people who wear glasses who can relate! Idea for you! Maybe when you do another non-pear comic you can hide a pear in it somewhere. She could have a pear as part of the design on her hat or something 😛

Thanks so much, Kate. I really really appreciate your kind remarks and that you like what I’m doing here with pears (especially the social media icons)! I also really LOVE your idea of adding a hidden pear somewhere in the illustration. I am going to steal that, absolutely!

Can’t wait to see where the pears show up! 😀

Oh so do I! Somebody should invent them immediately. Your illustrations are so delightful that I can’t believe anyone would worry if they’re not always seeing pear thoughts.

Hahaha. Thank you! It’s still kind of pear thoughts, because it’s me in the illustration (and I’m a pear 😉 )

When I was a kid I had a how-to-book about making simple silly things from a tiny engine. One of the things were glasses windshield wipers …. they were pretty terrible :p
March 12, 2014 at 7:57 pm
Hahaha. Did you actually make them? I feel like in practice they would, as you are saying, be pretty terrible. But I still always wish for them every extremely cold day!

I do agree!! I remember making them but I bet I didn’t do it properly!! I remember the only reason I wanted that book was to build a solar car! That was cool 😀

Thank you! I like the idea of an empire… Pear empire… Pear overlords!!!

Yes Do it! This is Sparta-pear

as a lifelong glasses wearer, i completely second this notion
March 10, 2014 at 2:29 pm
Brilliant and completely sums up how I feel!
March 10, 2014 at 11:31 pm
The very wish of each and every glasses wearer.

Thank you! I knew others would relate to this… the frustration and the blindness!
March 14, 2014 at 10:12 am
Still, it could be considered a pear of glasses…?
March 24, 2014 at 11:11 am
I like that!
