Here is a renewed attempt at cartooning. It is replicated from an adolescent memory of a cartoon I saw in some forgotten magazine. Of course, the caricature caught in unflattering circumstances is myself!

I think it denotes my native predisposition. Black and white solutions to complex issues rarely satisfy me, especially when they are the easiest option. Many people find this personality trait very annoying, but I tell them tolerating me is good for their soul and gives them opportunity to practice patience. The caricature of the dilemma I find quite appealing. In spite of the dangerous horns, fangs and claws, the monster looks confused and in need of some TLC. At least while I’m dangling there I can offer it some companionship and, ironically, a dose of my other annoying trait – optimism!

Oh by the way, A dilemma (Greek: δί-λημμα “double proposition“) is a problem offering at least two possibilities, neither of which is practically acceptable. (Wikipedia)
