Napoleon complex


For Christmas, my husband got me a print of my favourite Kate Beaton comic, above (though this is actually a photo of her book, Step Aside, Pops, which is great). We’ve moved twice since Christmas, and the fact that I still have yet to get the print framed is becoming embarrassing.

Napoleon’s height is my favourite historical fact, and part of me is considering not framing the print. Maybe I should carry it around with me and unfurl it whenever I feel the need to interject the fact into an otherwise pleasant conversation. Yes, I can be kind of annoying about it. To those who know me in real life, I apologize!

(You can buy Step Aside, Pops on Canadian and American Amazon.)
