What happened to her bulging biceps?
“Sacré bleu!” — Max’s left eye
Where do they get these storylines? Canada? https://shar.es/14WxMg
You know who else has never been asked out? Max. Instead he was ordered to the coffee shop.
Menzie to Maxwell in P1, Well, Maxwell, to be honest, it’s kind of freaky the way your lips don’t move when you speak and the sound seems to come from your ear.
Menzie to Maxwell in P2, Yeah, I’m terrified of midgets. The little bastards make my skin crawl. No offense.
Maxwell to Menzie in P3, Not even by Leisl? Menzie, Alright ahole let’s arm wrestle.
The beedy eyed girl in P.1 looks up to no good! Could be Keri T. Haunting this plotline.
P1 – Was the reason you bolted due to my head lice I’m scratching with my monster left hand?Real shock Ken(zie) has never been asked out, by a guy anyway.
Bolting. In college. Also known as dining & dashing. Some turned it into an art form. Irony is starting the week and ending it with EES.
“I’ve never been asked out before, er…. since the re-assignment surgery.”
Now hold on … I’m not immediately believing this development (tho who knows what next week will bring) … OR some of you guys who are implying that if a reasonably attractive (with this strip, one can never tell from one day to the next) Amazon woman showed up at your school, you’d have no interest … I’m calling BS on that one
DA! is true! Men from old country never asked,
@kdizzle: Since our illustrious janitor has the basketball court looking like an ice rink, I wouldn’t doubt the Canadian angle. Next, Menzie tries curling.
Obviously, being in high school, she isn’t old enough to bolt, or even know who Michael Bolton is or was. We do not know if she is SAE or Metric. Oh look over there on the floor, a piece of lung tissue…Michael Bolton must have sung in Milford. Shame on MOP for missing those alveoli
After they kiss she will know what she needs to know. Maxwell may have a tiger by the tail, and not know it. When I was a kid (about 100 years ago) there was Carol Ann we were in our early 20’s … She was about 90 lbs soak & wet. very pretty, awesome strawberry blond hair, but very quiet. She was part of a circle of people that had a common interest, but none of the guys asked her out … so after about three or four months I asked her if she’d like to go to the dance with me, and she said I’d love to. ………… Just let me say this … NO REGRETS !! Except the part where she tried to kill me with her car. My brother and one of our friends were in a high speed getaway chase; I was driving my brother’s pickup as fast as it would go while Carol Ann had a Chevelle which handled much better was trying to wreck us. Wes’s truck had a lot of motor and we could put distance on her when there were better roads. When we got on interstate 79 South I put my foot to the floor and when that F150 got to 100 MPH … that was the last time that I saw Carol Ann Craw. I herd that she stayed at her job at Southern States Cooperative in Morgantown, West Virginia, but she did move from her apartment. Never saw her again, but a friend said that she was still quiet and shy and hung out with another group that had a similar interest as ours.
About a year after C.A.C. I met my sweetheart … we were a couple for almost two years, then we got married and that has been almost 36 years … I’ve busted a few heads for disrespecting her … did not talk to our daughter for almost a year for being hateful to her (but all is good now between them). I’m retired now and thinking back I have NO REGRETS with my little sweetheart Donna Marie, and I love my mother in law and most of Donna Marie’s siblings as well.
I usually don’t comment, although I read Gil Throp every day, but today is different. High school lovers brings back memories ….
What’s up with his left eye in panel 3 …?
Well-drawn eye in panel 2, I must say.
Based on the diameter of her pupils, one can dismiss the possibility of substance abuse. In this instance, the eyes don’t have it.
Based on the diameter of the pupil, we can rule out opiate abuse. In this case, the eyes don’t have it. Cannot recall a Thorp story arc that dealt with hard drug abuse.
How long will this “they both like each other but one or the other will act stupid enough to prevent a date” go on? And speaking of stupid, here’s today’s Mopped Up Thorp.
@chiphilton/1st post: her blood rushed out of them to a land of myth and mystery causing other symptoms
EES is preferable to ECS. Think Montezuma.
Kenzie has got her hands all over Maxwell, there may be more, better milestones yet. Even old people like us like to kiss and especially when the kisser really knows how to kiss. Some people say the magic in real eros love is sex (oh, and I still like sex) some say it’s when you all dance real slow & close (oh, and I still like to dance slow & close) some say it’s when the weekend comes and you both sleep in and wake up late together. (oh, and I still like sleeping in with her even after more than 35 years) Some say it’s all sorts of stuff … but I say it is in a good kiss. Now when you are young Kissing is important but most young people do not have a clue how important good kissing really is. Real good sex always begins with at least three real good kisses. (I also must say that a quickie is good for the soul once in awhile, but too many quickies will hurt a relationship) Once lovers realize how important real good kissing is, and knowing that they cannot always, or should I say have sex just anytime … but anytime is right for two people to kiss. Life has a really cool way of dishing out the little things that mean so much when you get older and live in a real functional loving relationship. I think that I think more of that little old green eyed gal now than I did when we were kids. just sayen …
I am 6’ 4" 240 lbs and my bride is 5’6" 130 I think lbs … I have never danced with a girl taller than me … even in high school. When I was 18 or 19 I had a girlfriend that was 6 feet tall. Merrylee. She was a much better skier than me. I rather snowboard now .. the secrete to that is look where you are going (down the hill) not at your feet or board … once you get the hang of it , then it doesn’t matter where you look. just sayen
