Panel 1: The Benefits of being profoundly Deaf

Panel 2: (Desmond is sitting at a window seat in the far left side of the middle row of a full plane. He is reading a book and thinking, smiling. There are many people seated in the plane, looking around and frowning with uncomfortable expressions. In the row behind Desmond, there is a little boy standing up, moving around, and playing in his seat next to a woman holding a crying baby, moving in her arms. In the far right side of the row in front of Desmond, there is a man struggling with his earplugs. The man sitting next to Desmond is looking at him jealously, folding his arms)
Desmond is thinking: “THIS IS SO RELAXING!”
