TipTop’s mantras

TipTop is in bed. He says he is going to try those mantras.  Whilst going to sleep he says: "I will get up for a run...I will get up for a run...I will get up for a run" When his alarm bell goes off at 5am, he looks startled nad repeats a mantra: "My bed is so comfy...my bed is so comfy...my bed is so comnfy."

  1. I have tried this for decades: “I will stop eating big bowls of ice cream” X infinity. Does not work.

    1. Know that feeling. I had so much ice cream I became lactose intolerant!

  2. hihihihihihi! So true!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Ah well, good intentions and all that! Thanks for dropping by ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. My 11.00pm mantra is always, “I will get up and run” and my 5.00am-er “I will do it later, I will do it later.” A wicked capturing of a sad-and-all-too-common runner’s plight. Hehe

    1. Maรฑana mantras. Don’t we just know it ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Oh dear. This made me smile, if only because I’ve been there so many times before. Thank you, as always, for such a wonderful little light on an otherwise murky and dark day!

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Michael. Sorry for the delay in replying. Been ill! I’m back in the room now.

      1. Well I’ve been known to go weeks without responding to comments, so you have nothing to worry about.

        Get well soon, though. We all love how you make us smile!

        1. Thanks, man. On the mend.

  5. Comfy time beats running time hands down. Keep up the Mantra Tip Tp & you will be well rested for that run another day

    1. Rest is also good I agree! I need one myself!

  6. Maybe he can dream of going for a run.

    1. Great idea. Less exhausting, virtual exercise.

  7. Nice – and sooo familiar!

    1. Don’t we know it.

  8. I was about to top tip about the comfy time, too! Here they talk about starting bike rides over the Pass at 6am….

    1. There’s something slightly more motivating about the South African climate and landscape to get you out of bed! Still, impressive.

    Sounds familiar.

  10. Mate. ย So on the money! That was me this morning at 7am!!! (did get out on the bike in the end tho)

    1. Maybe if we all slept on beds of nails we’d want to get up and out more often! Good work on the bike. Fancy a Triathlon in the summer?

  11. What happened to “five more minutes… five more minutes…” look at the time!

    1. Good one! The time on the last panel was an accidental mistake from copying and pasting the second panel! I guess TipTop had a big lie in ๐Ÿ™‚

What do you reckon?
