I would presume to assume you’re a douchbag

Boo and True discover they’ve met already, at a party back in the fall, (need the archive expert to come up with appropriate strip at this point) and I think given the fact that True was such a notable transfer to the school its likely she knew who he was And saw him around school and on the field before this party. At any rate, she teases him about being a dumb jock, then in P2 he says ‘the first time’ was at a party. Well then there was at least one other time, which would help his memory considerably, one would think. Then he rolls out the line in P3 that must have her eyes rolling. So he’s saying she is presuming he would not remember her, but the opposite is not true, that he has enough regard for her memory that she would remember him. And she would respond (title of this post) and that would definitely be true, of True. Got all that?



  1. I first saw today’s strip in black and white. Upon the b&w view I thought there was a soybean burger on Trues plate. Upon further review in color, it most certainly is a soybean burger! Way to go, True! If he’s pitching today and is successful , he’ll have to have another tomorrow since baseball players are so superstitious.

  3. True’s gotta pay his dues if he wants to hang with Boo, and you know it don’t come easy.

  4. True continues to cement his Galahad persona: “I remember meeting you, of course (because you are so dazzling) but I am surprised you recall a humble ant like me.” I was the one to propose “False” as shorthand for Art Standish, and while I do not have Boo’s articulateness in referring to herself by the endlessly suggestive name “multiple choice,” I have to float the name “Too Good To Be” for True. True ‘n Boo is a remarkably promising pairing, one which in a different way could rival the football story. If it does not, we at least have the asinine basketball plot for contrast.

  5. Boo Radley greets True
    Standish with a snarl and then….

    I’ll go away now….

  6. Anyone taking a guess on how long until True has Boo teaching him how to pitch? That should be the romantic tension story line for our baseball spring.
