This Week in Milford

I Don’t Sleep, I Dream


I dream of the day when this slog of a story arc will end. I thought today would be that day. But noOOo…

Didn’t one of the collective TWIM hive mind – either one of the blogging rotation or a commenter – mention that we hadn’t heard boo from either Radley parent since Boo died? Why wait until this late date to reintroduce one of them, and then only via text? Why, Rubin, why?

metapost: On the road for much of the day, may update later as more thoughts hit me. Or not.



  1. This year only the bonfire becomes a funeral pyre… Boofire!!!

  2. Struggling to figure out how Rubin will account for the missing summer, how True will make up for the entire preseason at Wake Forest, and how we will move past this tarbaby of a story. Also wondering if it is significant that the dialog bubble emanating from True’s descending colon in P-3 appears next to Gil’s G-I cup. One thing I do not give a flying flip about is what happened at Mfnrd County Club this summer. I have kind of given up on seeing meaningful references to Boo, her death, or her parents’ grief.

  4. As the proud pounder of the Cherry MX blues, I am aware that Das makes a great “blank” keyboard. I have never seen a laptop version of the black keys before, but looks like True got himself a leading edge Vaio. All the better to cyber-stalk a grieving parent.

  6. Hate to say it, but I think we died and went to Rubin-Hell.
