After putting on 10,000 steps,

I feel like I had a good, busy day.

It's an all-too-healthy

way of escapism.

- You're home.

- Hi.

I sleep when Dad gets home

at 9 p.m.

Actually, it's hypnotism,

not sleeping.

To erase away the day.

And to start fresh tomorrow.

To be true to each new day.

You're sleepy.

Once in spring and in fall...

That day comes just twice a year.

Now, for the count down!

Relax. Stay calm.

Blast off!

Attention citizens.

This is the Civil Defense Corps....

For just 20 minutes a year...

the world seems like

the empty moon.

It feels...

lighter with1/6th the gravity

like on the moon.

I wish the world would

freeze like this.

So life could be 1/6th lighter...

It's a sign from an alien!

I already tried hypnosis 13 times,

but it's no use.

It's not my fault.

I must forget. I can forget.

You're sleepy.

He's alive!

Thank you!

The alien is a freak.

'Help' changed to 'Hello'.

Good shot!

Instant black bean noodles

Just cuz of 12 grams.

I crumbled.

Black bean powder, sugar, dextrin,

caramel coloring...

Oh, caramel...

Seasoning, flour,

yummy flavorings...

Damn delicious

Modified Glucosyl Stevia.

Damn. I wanna eat this so badly.

It doesn't have to be wheat.

I don't even expect that much.

If I can make noodles,

anything would do.

All the times I was stupid enough

to pass on black bean noodles.

I regret it so much.

Just one bite, dear?


- No.

- Just one bite?

No! No! No!

Eat first.

Eat the noodles first! Stupid!

Black bean noodles, everyone?

Spicy noodles for me.

If I sprinkle this down my mouth...

will the craving go away?

Damn it!

Stop pooping guys.

Eating and pooping all the time.

That's why you'll always be

just damn birds.


Poop! That's it!

That's it! Poop! Poop!

This could work!
