    Will this be the end of the strip? Graduation for Luann’s class and a wedding for Brad?

    At least he isn’t littering.

    She did have one when Baldo first met her, but they are no longer together.

    I’m surprised to hear he rents. I wouldn’t think a landlord would give him the option to have a “natural” lawn (meadow).

    When I was a kid we went to the pool to go swimming. There weren’t any chairs except the lifeguard chairs.

    “That” and “which” are both used for inanimate objects. “Who” is for people. “This is the book that I borrowed” is correct. “This is the book, which I borrowed” is also correct. The difference is that using the “which” is almost like putting the next part in parentheses. Note the comma before the “which.”

    Yep. Skip.

    Second cousin’s half-sister is enough right there. I have a second cousin who is the daughter of my mother’s female cousin. Her half-sister would be a child of her father, not her mother – otherwise she’d also be my second cousin, not described as a half-sister.

    Mom says she’s going “Out for coffee,” but she’s really eating cake.

    Mom says it’s a book club, but they just eat, drink, and talk (not about books).

    Mom goes to “happy hour,” but it’s really a time for cheap drinks and gossip.

    Those things are all seen as normal and okay. But when the daughter’s “going to the mall with a bunch of friends” turns out to be “finding a private place with one boy,” suddenly it’s important to be doing what you said you would. Misnaming is okay for the adult, not the kid.
