Texts from Rock: The Bullying Concrete Slab Edition

The slab threatens him, the driftwood is a gossip, and Mom deflates his new hobby. Rock texts!

Angie Bailey  |  Apr 1st 2015

It’s been quite a week for poor Rock. A neighborhood bully piece-of-concrete won’t stop intimidating him through the window. If Rock didn’t feel a little sorry for the big chunk, he’d totally take him on. Well, probably. Mom’s dating a new guy, which totally cuts into Rock’s social life. He worries he’ll never get to the park to see his stone friends again.

He tries to amuse himself by proposing a hobby, but cheapskate Mom shuts that down right away. What’s a rock to do when his only entertainment is conversing with a piece of driftwood who’s a complete gossip? And to make things worse, the cat won’t stop licking him. Sometimes it’s hard to be a rock.

Here are some of the highlights — and lowlights — of the past few days in Rock’s world.


Rock peruses Pinterest for landscaping ideas.


“I need to be on a higher shelf. I feel unsafe.”


“Stop licking me! Gross!”
