    Beans and Chipitos for dinner.. YUMMY! lol

    Bernice left out that Luann was making bad puns the whole night, as well. It was a disaster!

    I think it’s safe to say that Piro isn’t really interested in Luann romantically, and that’s why Luann is acting pi$$y.

    .

    So did they set a date for the skydiving?? lol

    There is more than one fish in the sea Luann. If Walt is not interested in you as anything more than a friend then it is time to quit brooding on it. If Luann cannot move on she should take her angst and put it into a really creative essay for Mrs H’s class.

    And here’s Bernice to bring sunshine to the day.

    But seriously, if Tara is his cousin why does she talk and like a girl trying to pick up a guy?

    And why has there been no talk about the writing assignment. I guess I’m too literal-minded for this strip because when they say they are going to have a study session for a writing assignment I sort of expect a study session, not bragging about how reckless one has been.

    I don’t care about the word prissy, it’s funny. It’s a word someone pike Bern might use with her BFF to describe how she understands Lu is disturbed by how Tara interacts with her cousin. I’m not sure Walt/Piro even weird. Kinda subtle actually. Not like the boring nebbish, Aaron Hill

    I’m truly amazed at the level of indifference Bernice has towards Piro. She was sincere when she said she wasn’t interested in him? She probably didn’t even go to say hello when he arrived… So, more than just not interested, she’s avoiding him as much as she can?! Luann seems genuinely annoyed by Tara’s presence. It’s easy to understand why, but I hope the two don’t end up fighting about it. I would prefer them to speak frankly, maybe finally Piro will decides to tell his tragic past to them. I love the annoyed rudeness with which Luann prepares the snack for her friends. The way she opens the bag with her teeth. Luann has an exceptional mimics that no other character has in the strip.

    Everyone assumes they have left. Luann could be getting the stuff to bring in the other room. Bernice could be staying out of it. Before anyone says that Bernice is speaking in the past tense, it would apply in either case. Either they came and left, or they are still there.

    Possible character development? Luann might not be romantically interested in either Piro or Tara but just didn’t appreciate hosting a study session where nothing gets done beyond them talking about ways she is an outlier in the small group. Maybe like Gunther she will have to think about who she is and what that means for her future? Maybe if Gunther likes stable and predictable he needs to admit that to himself and others he might pair up with (or even have as close friends)? Maybe if Bets likes taking risks and living one day at a time fully exposed online then she needs to find people who also value that instead of lecturing her to change? As youthful characters part of their mission is to figure out what makes them who they are. Luann seems to struggle with that more than the rest – unsure who she is or what she wants to be – fairly common for people who go to college because “everyone goes to college” not to chase a passion.

    Maybe Tara is a military recruiter? How else can she pay tuition, be poor, and offer opportunities to do expensive activities like jumping out of planes? If you want to risk your life without paying top dollar, and get help with tuition, maybe joining some high risk military venture helps?

    It’s odd that the even characters like Bernice are implied to think Tara and Piro are implied lovers. I was hoping for Tara to just be a supportive cousin. Having the characters insinuate and hint that it’s more is a deliberate choice to make their relationship look weird.

    So, is Luann getting snacks for during the ongoing study session….. or is she getting herself a snack after they (Piro and Tara) left? Her messy food could have different implications depending on which is the current state of affairs.

    Tara IMO was acting as a “chaperone” of sorts…. for some reason she wants to “protect” both Piro and Luann from getting together because she (rightly or wrongly) fears one or both of them will get hurt.

    Okay Bern let me know the next time you invite anyone over to get to know them better. I’ll invite myself alone and undermine your every effort, talk over you and imply that your presence isn’t needed in your own homeOH YEAH , you don’t have one! The same tone and attitude that Luann would NEVER take with Bernice if the tables were turned.

    Sorry, Luann. Piro just isn’t into you and doesn’t mind his cousin coming along. I suspect he is relieved – he is probably one of those guys who are intimidated by aggressive girls and views you to be those girls and takes comfort in using Tara as a buffer.

    While I think it would be interesting to have Luann and Piro explore the potential of being a couple…… depending on Piro’s history….. and depending upon Luann’s level of naïveté……. the mix of those two together COULD be good….. but also COULD be a disaster.

    It is my opinion that Tara’s recent behaviors reflect how SHE feels a Luann-Piro pairing would go….. I suspect she thinks it would be damaging to Piro or damaging to Luann or damaging to both of them.

    My read on this also has me thinking this is more of a subconscious action on Tara’s part. She typically has not shown a lot of what could be called “empathy” before….. but at a subconscious level this could be a viable explanation.

    EXTRA COPY OF THE NOVELLA:

    So I accidentally got an extra copy I hadn’t paid for, and emailed G&K explaining what happened and offering to return it, and here is their response:

    Hi Bryan, so happy you got your copy…and a bonus copy as well :) Please keep the extra copy or pass it along to someone you know who might enjoy it: it turns out we had some had some labels double print so a few lucky readers got an extra book!

    Thank you for reaching out and we hope you enjoy the read,

    ~Karen (and Greg!)

    So since I have their blessing, is there someone who couldn’t get the book who wants one? Just let me know (and we’ll find a way to get me your address without exposing your sensitive info online) and I can send it to you at no charge. I’ll just need to buy some stamps or something. Let’s be clear that I am not selling it or asking for donations; I’m not trying to make money off G&K’s hard work (no matter how much I criticize their work). I’m passing it along for free to anyone who missed their chance before.
