This Week in Milford

That’s Six “Too Cool for School”s If You’re Counting


Long day for me and an uncharacteristically late post, mea culpa.  Today’s the day for people on the perpendicular, starting with the first panel’s awkward hallway exchange.  I’m pretty sure when you go to high-five someone you don’t karate chop them across the palm, but then that’s why she’s the athlete and he’s… some rando MHS student.

The ninety-degree approaches continue in the cafeteria, where Molly Hatchet turns her upper torso and dislocates her left shoulder to face high-five girl (Carla? Nancy?) at a right angle. All the better to feign interest in high-five girl’s exasperation at getting attention for being good at sportsball.  I do find her inability to remember who threw the awkward high-five at her confusing, if only because I’m never quite sure how big Milford is.

On to the Saturday cliffhanger, which hinges on that dead horse of a phrase.  Molly (sporting an earring straight out of one of Raven’s progressive matrices) gets ready to drop a bombshell that has something to do with being “too cool for school.” Something tells me her synchronized skating team has been chosen to demonstrate that sport for the next Winter Olympics, and the prep for that will take her away from Milford for the next year-plus.  With Molly gone, morale on the Lady Mudlarks may crumble to the point that a Rally Hippo won’t be able to save the season and the playdowns will be missed just in time for Molly to come back and get a looper’s job at the MCC.

Again, apologies for the late post.


  1. Nancy Kaffer is the blonde with long, straight hair. We don’t know much about Carla North other than she validated the Rally Hippo.

    I’m wondering if the rando in P1 just might be Bobby Howry. That guy is never gonna leave MHS.

  2. No worries about late posts on weekends — we have an extra day to read everything. I watch Bar Rescue frequently and one episode has an incompetent bar manager saying “All in!” over and over, to the point where John Taffer finally says — ” If he says ‘All In’ one more time I’m walking out of here.” ‘Too cool for school’ l I first heard in Grease by one of the Pink Ladies. Once is enough. 6 times is repulsive.
