Dispatches From Omaha: July 6, 2018

I meant to get this off earlier today but thanks to some still unknown party, I have been battling a stomach flu for the last 24 hours. This is how the conversation will go if I ever discover the identity of the brigand:

But here’s a couple of updates of Omaha life whilst I await an airdrop of Pepto Bismol. We tried a place called First Watch in Omaha.

    On a sad note, I just found out this morning that Spider-Man and Doctor Strange artist and creator Steve Ditko passed away at the age of 90. He was responsible for many of my happiest childhood moments.
