This Week in Milford

April 14, 2021

Don’t Worry, Luhm, Zane Isn’t Horning In on Your Turf

Okay, so the young lady with the tendrils hanging down isn’t a teacher but a fellow student, Priya (no last name yet), and this isn’t an academic class but a senior class meeting. I don’t recall what gets done in these meetings: cap and gown ordering, picking a class song or theme, deciding who’s “most likely to succeed” or “wittiest” or some other “superlative,” choosing a class trip and a prom theme, etc., usw. Really, just a bunch of stuff to pad your resume when applying to colleges, and there’s always that kid who takes it just a little too seriously and makes it uncomfortable for most everyone else involved. Here, Priya is that kid.

Among the suddenly dumped upon us exposition is that Zane has somehow managed to get himself elected senior class vice president. With everything that’s going on at home it’s hard to imagine how he would’ve run for and, if he won, agreed to serve in that role. Maybe that it serves as another form of therapy is what kept Zane from going all General Sherman on the Milford High Class of 2021.

Obviously Katy Brito doesn’t care if Priya’s nose is out of joint. Nor does Zane for that matter. Only When Abel Brito Charlie Delta sticks his nose in will things get truly snippy.

  1. Yeah. All that the student council kids did at my HS were pose for yearbook photos, hang motivational and bullshit school spirit posters in the hallways, and make appearances at stuff no one GAF’d about like pep rallies. Also, they were, with the exception of one or two kids who didn’t play sports, all female. I’m not sure how a kid with a full-plate got sucked into a VP position, but the VP usually doesn’t do anything but fill in for the Prez when that individual is absent. Little Miss Control Freak here would most likely never miss anything that would require Zane’s assistance. I think he should just tell her ass next time “…you’re absolutely right!…I’ve got too much other stuff goin’ on right now, so I’m going to email you my resignation right now…thanks!…”

  3. If I recall, the class officers were elected in Freshman year, and it’s a “lifetime” position. So Zane would have been elected to this position before everything went to hell at home. So in this case I’m thinking the writers are not unrealistic. For once.

    Yeah, that’s why Zane is so tired. He has to do his floor cleaning outside of Milford, since I have the whole town under contract.

  4. I was out of the country Junior Year, when my posse ran for student council on the platform of : Abolish Student Council unless they give us real power.
    Yeah, they lost.

  5. In my school there was an election every year. Most freshmen realize by senior year how wonderfully inane student “government “ is. I would hope.

  6. SO WHY DOESN’T HE STEP DOWN FROM OFFICE IF HE HAS SO MUCH ON HIS GODDAMN PLATE? WHY IS HE EVEN PLAYING BASEBALL NOW WHEN HE WAS JUST FINE WITHOUT IT FOR TWO FULL YEARS? WHAT IS SO SHAMEFUL ABOUT TELLING THE CLASS PRESIDENT THAT HE HAS A PART-TIME JOB? WHY IS HE WORRYING ABOUT INCONSEQUENTIAL BULLSHIT INSTEAD OF HIS COLLEGE APPLICATIONS?

    And yes, Priya is a hottie…
