Peter's Thoughts

The cookies that Timby had in his kitchen that night were not just any cookies. These cookies were set aside, under penalty of lightning, not to be for Nixy. Had Nixy only realized this before he sneaked in that night, things might have gone very differently for him.

Alas, such are the idle, remorseful musings of Nixy so many days later. But they are accompanied by other musings, more disquieting than remorseful, of how these cookies were not set aside for Timby either. Researchers, investigators, and tourists have prodded and probed Timby often for the answer to the question, "Who were the cookies for?" but only to get shoved into a giant, stinky sock and hear Timby's gleeful cackling as he made his getaway.

GASP

"Touch not the cookies."

"What will happen to me?"

"May the lightning strike you."

KABOOM!

"Who'd that strike?!"

"Whoever it was, they know that was meant for you."

KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK

"There they are now!"

CREEAAK

"Hehehe ...

"We expected you a minute sooner.

"Now take my pants to the dry cleaner."

Everything looks perfect from far away.

*GASP!*

Poor Nixy! He needs cuddles. And cookies.

I love this! It's so very Peter and Gabe. It seems so familiar I almost wonder if I wasn't there when the original exchange took place :-P

The lightning looks really cool, Timby's threatening glare is amazing, and everything Nixy does is hilarious!

And is that one of the big men with clubs? :-P

I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest- Owl City

xDDDDD

Epic. Love the lightning.

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

I don't care what the devil's gonna do!

The Word and faith is my sword and shield

And Jesus is Lord of the way I feel!

Thanks!

Thanks everybody, always glad to add a little to your lives and subtract a little from your sanity! ;)

“Timby, I know you’re awake! Don’t lie!” –Nixy (Contradictionary - Party)

Oh...!

The lightning is awesome, Peter. Good art. Still, the first time I read this, I thought the guy in the obligatory striped shirt was wearing an executioner's hood. Now I see it's just that his head has been fried by the misguided lightning.

Is he the one the cookies were set aside for? And then the lightning hit him by mistake? If that's so, then there seems to be an odd and inexorable justice in this universe. A sense of balance, as it were. And all ends up right in the end. Nixy ends up with his just punishment for eating the cookies, and the stripey guy gets the cookies after all. Everyone is happy, and the Contradictionary universe can settle back into its usually workings.

We should take our comfort from God's word, not from the circumstances of our lives.
