This Week in Milford

September 2, 2020

A New Thayer, Not in New Thayer

As much as Corina wants to be in Milford, I get the sense she really doesn’t belong there. First off, she’s wearing this tiny-ass backpack and asking about lockers. At son of teenchy’s high school there are lockers but nobody has enough time between classes to stop at them, so everybody carries all of their day’s materials in backpacks big enough to use on an extended Appalachian Trail hike. Then again, more of the class materials are becoming electronic and are accessed via school-issued Chromebooks. This is especially the case now since more and more schools (including son of teenchy’s) are going remote this fall. So maybe Corina is ahead of the curve here.

Where she isn’t – and where it appears she doesn’t really belong in Milford – is in keeping up this tough chick front. Wasn’t Corina’s problem with authority figures, not fellow students? So why mouth off to two girls who are innocently offering help? If either of them had any sense, they would take Corina’s reference to hiding a couple of bodies as a threat, report it to Dr. Pearl, and have Corina’s ass on the next bus back to Valley Mod so fast it’ll make her head spin. People have been expelled from Milford for less. But since Rubin has seen fit to carry her into a third story arc, she’s here for the duration. No softball this fall, so will she stay in shape playing soccer? Let’s hope so; <a href=”“> Coach Dawes</a> won’t put up with her shtick.

Rubin uses the bodies joke to transition us to football where, again, he and Whigham remain committed to detachment from reality. These two rando Mudlarks are already suited up in game unis and helmets fully decaled before even having played their first scrimmage. They’re scoping out a Will Thayer and how he fills out those pads. Is this a broad hint at steroid use? Isn’t that what we said about Saad Shamoun before he told Steve Boone he’d been working out with John Pascoe and Tipp Nunn?

metapost: Obviously I haven’t figured out yet how to embed hyperlinks in the new WordPress editor. Hopefully I can come back later today and work on that.


  1. By showing the two kids in football uniforms, I can only hope that Rubin is gonna’ get back to some actual sports, and not like that bullshit baseball game last spring. Maybe quit dwelling on CK so much too…3 stories in a row is too much…….like the kids already at the school would really give a fuck about showin’ her around or even talking to her after she opens her mouth…’Pheebs is a bigger dipshit than ‘Mo the waitress by trying to help this future Orange is the New Black character.

  2. Eh. I see Corinna as already tamed, and just clowning about her reputation. Like Madi in Mary worth, who crumbled into nice way too fast. It would have been fun to see her get blowtop and fling some scissors, but looks like it won’t happen.

  3. Clever title, Teenchy. Not EVEN gonna try to match(ha).

    P2-Leo Rosten, a famous writer on several subjects, once related a story about Grouch Marx. He had opened up a bank account and the bank manager wrote Grouch a letter thanking him for his business and that if he could do anything for Groucho, let him know.
    Groucho shot back a letter saying to immediately deposit $1,000,000 in his account, come by his house and help clean out his attic, and walk his dog on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Oh, and pick up the tab when they have lunch together at some expensive restaurant.
    Those might not have been the exact terms but I think everyone gets the idea.

  4. It wouldn’t be so pathetic if I didn’t know a dozen examples back in the day of kids transferring to my school from from a “bad” school/district/neighborhood and from the first minute of their first day they tried to act like they were 100% hardassed gangsta…

    We see through you, Patty.

  5. Oh, and let’s have a little fucking consistency here — If what’s his name got expelled for having a butterknife under ZERO TOLERANCE, then Patty has to at least be reprimanded for joking about murder… ESPECIALLY in today’s atmosphere.

  6. Teenchy and hitorque, I was thinking same thing about the double standard. They should stuff a body in a locker. What’s her names live body. Where’s that wasteoid Gil?
