I was lucky enough to have friends who didn’t think it rude to need both quiet and company. True friends.
Sometimes you need both quiet and company.
And perhaps a bit embarrassed!
What the heck is a twin cousin?
This is the first really funny strip in quite a while. As in universally funny – a joke even those who aren’t familiar with the story line or characters could get.

I agree. My first thought was that this was a flashback.
He thinks she actually made the jump and is writing from her own experience.
Yes, there were clues. Yes, one could argue that taking the more “sensible” approach and ignoring peer pressure shows growth. Yes, Luann clearly aced the assignment and that’s growth too.
Overcoming her fears and jumping anyway would have shown growth too. She could have met the assignment criteria by writing about her experience from a different point of view – try think of the emotions that would have been going through Nancy’s mind, for example, had Luann jumped. Actually going through with the jump would have made Luann a more interesting character, IMHO. Rightly or wrongly, it would have given her some stature among her friends. It would have given her something to look back on later – a photo to hang on her wall, as it were.
I’m getting really tired of the old “misdirection” play by GnK. Recycling the same formula over and over again is how good book series and TV shows lose interest and followers, and eventually fade away.
