This Is Really Happening


“Molly, do you ever buy bagels from Arjun Khatri on Fridays?” That right there is about the most out of left field thing I’ve ever read in Gil Thorp. As I write these things first thing Monday morning, something like that can really make me question if I’m this is all real or if I’m dreaming.

Now we have school faculty, like Molly Hatcher’s World History teacher, nominating other students to receive the TC challenge coin. Isn’t this grand?

Now that Arjun Khatri has been designated TC for acts of altruism, do we now have to reevaluate those earlier TCFS candidates? Arjun raised $5000 for the food bank, and you have a collection of stuffed hippos? Yeah, look I’ve only got fifty of these and I doubt if I’m going to get the Flirting With Disaster discount again so that’s going to be a hard pass.

Who is Arjun Khatri? The New Jersey high school wrestler? An aspiring Indian filmmaker, or the singer of Poldo Raichha Chhati:


  1. Does Arjun even want this button that says “TC” on it? I guess if he did then he wouldn’t be “Too Kool 4 Skool”…

  2. Why does Molly wear her backpack to class? She’s not wearing it when she conducts Arjun’s TCFS qualification interview.

  4. “No, but do you buy your clothes at Men’s Wearhouse?”

  5. A great next plot twist would be World History Teacher and Molly signing up to do an Abbott and Costello routine for the ‘Milford’s Got Talent Show’. Panel One shows they’ve clearly got the height and body differences ready to go, a little costuming and pow! — Who’s on First?

  6. Please make this asinine plot stop. These girls are inventing things to make people think they are special. A lot of kids have multiple interests. That doesn’t make them super extraordinary.

  7. Still not sure if we are headed toward an exclusionary thing or a feelgood thing honoring those who achieve things without drawing attention to themselves. Could go either way, but in either case I’m rapidly losing interest.

  8. P4: “I know….that’s why you can keep your cereal box prize”

  9. We can’t see the whole classroom but I don’t see a globe. How can it be World History without a globe?
