Around the time I first drew this comic, I went to visit one of my sisters. While there I had an amusing conversation with my niece who was 15 at the time. I was talking to her, doing that thing that annoyed me to death when grown up did it to me when I was a kid.Wait, did that make sense?

Anyway, I told her that the day she was born, my father faxed my high school to let me know I had a niece. Before the word, “fax” had finished exiting my mouth she shrieked with laughter, “A FAX?!?!? Who sends a FAX?!”

But the glee on my niece’s face, the pure, untarnished exhilaration of mocking my arcane technological reference was so apparent, that I had to turn it into a comic. 
I did have a lot of fun drawing 1990s Debbie though. Can we just revel in the 90s splendor of everything about her?
