    I wonder if Michael and Gordon realize they are standing behind one of those Letratone trees, I have heard so much about, where the bark looks like wood paneling. No doubt they figure they can fire off snowballs from behind the tree without being seen because anyone looking their way would be distracted by the Letratone.

    Good call, Mike! He’ll marry her in about 15 years!

    Yes I agree. If he does throw the snowball she will bring it up to him when they have an argument.

    Wonder how Gordon would react if he was dared to lob a snowball at Allyson Creemore?

    -
    Possibly. acer pennsylvanicum is in Ontario, where the comic strip storyline is set.

    I don’t know if he would care. At this point in the comic strip, Gordon is still the Eddie Haskell character of the comic strip. Young Michael hit puberty sometime around age 5 when he first started relentlessly mooning over Deanna Sobinski. Most boys start to notice girls later on in life. I have the feeling Gordon will not show an interest in Allyson Creemore for another 4 years.

    Some of the commenters and readers here have not read the strips on the first run. It is neither nice, nor fair to them to give away so much information.
    And by the way, your description of Lawrence is offensive and childish. Your whole post shows the level of your mentality.

    In that case, you should stop right after reading the comic strip and avoid reading the comments at all costs. The commenters are carefully vetted to make sure that no one is funny. gocomics monitors it very carefully, as I am sure you can tell from the comments already here.

    I wouldn’t think she would remember that he hit her with a snow ball after all those years. She will no doubt be hit with many snow balls between then and the time they get married.

    Oh, Rebel Strike. That was not a nice thing to say. We all must be tolerate of ones who are different from us . That is just life.

    Spoiler alert!

    Since he hits her with a car a few years later, I think he has more to worry about when they do get married than a snowball….
