Did Someone Say Track?

062117

Hey remember how there was a whole thing about one of the girls liking one of the guys on the track team? Yeah, me neither.

Bonus points:

Kaz’s barbed wire tattoo peeking out beneath his sleeve that he still regrets getting but can’t afford to get removed.

One Other Problem?

Wait, the Van Aukens wanted a fresh start so they moved to the next tank town over which is actually closer to Ma Van Auken’s work?

Like many TWIM commenters, I’m not even sure what the heck Gil is talking to Dr. Pearl about. So far as we’ve seen, aside from losing control, not his temper mind you, while being the subject of a protest of sorts, Ryan has mostly been OK.

Except that…. there’s one other problem. Sure, why not, it’s mid-June, we have practically no feel for any of the character’s in this season’s plot nor any sense of what’s at stake, but let’s introduce another thread to the plot. As they say, tune in tomorrow…

How Many Athletic Transfers Does MHS Get Anyway?

Seriously, it’s gotta be every other plot where some kid from outta town comes to Milford.

I’ll leave commentary regarding Ms. Rizik’s dubious listening and advisory skills to the TWIM community.

More kid gossip

So after the Bucket stare-off, we find that both the guy and the girl thought the other guy and girl was impressed with them. Egads. I cant keep anybody straight at this point. All I know is someone is gonna get mad at somebody for no good reason. P3 adds to the confusion with 3 more girls deciding to go … where? Who knows who likes who at this point and who cares? We got games to play.

METAPOST: I couldnt upload  the strip because GOcomics wasnt working properly, so I put the link from the Seattle Times in instead. I dont know why I cant copy/paste the Seattle link anymore but if someone can tell me how I’d appreciate it.

META-METAPOST: Not sure the issue, but hope you don’t mind my fix, Rob. TimP

What’s Next?

050217

I am sure Dafne will easily be able to top her takedown of a prominent school board member. Stories like that are a dime a dozen in the student newspaper.  Meanwhile, these oddly shaped and attired Central City Cretins are apparently planning a road trip to Tanktown Milford to do…. what exactly? Rile up what’s his name? The volcano guy?

I guess they don’t have anything else to do two weeks from now.

Because You’re Adorable

P1: Carrie Hobson is kinda terrible at pitching except when she’s thinking about boys. Noted. I’m not gonna get my hopes too high for this season’s softball plot.

P2: I recognize the Chief has little room to work with when it comes to making the various characters distinctive, but I find Rackley’s hair even more improbable than Dafne Dafonte’s or Aaron Aagard’s. (What is with the alliterative names in Milford? It wasn’t that long ago that we had Wynn and Wendy Wiley…)

P3: I hadn’t realized obnoxious was a shot putter stereotype. Again, noted.

Let’s Celebrate By Talking About Something Else

Cute boys are all the girls can think about, amirite fellas? Ha Ha!

Bonus point: That is the most pronounced case of EES I have yet seen and somehow Carrie’s face seems (relatively speaking) OK in panel three.

Cruel Parents?

Dafne Dafonte is a shoo-in for the Milford Hall of Name.

I have to wonder if sharing details of your ‘killer story’ with someone tied into the Milford administration is sound journalistic practice.  Then again, looking at Mimi’s meathook in panel two, I would do my best to keep her on my side…
