Author commentary

Veronica: That sequence between Paulo and Lucy is the best ever. And isn’t it a bit deja vu-ish with the sequence of teachers? The Honors English one shows off her parody, then the CP English.. then the English I teacher.. pretty much the exact same pace as they were introduced in the comic before.

Also, Yashy almost always comes to school with Lucy. She’s either hanging out in Lucy’s bookbag or being carried by her.. Yashy didn’t just randomly appear out of nowhere.

Wait… doesn’t this prove that Yashi totally does know about Sandy? As in, there’s no reason for Lucy to cover it up in later chapters?

@Rasputin: you’re close, but not quite there. It shows that Yashy knows about a mystery girl but not Sandy specifically. Plus, given to the fact that she’s three-ish years old, I think she does forget or maybe just decides not to mention it after Lucy’s boulder-melting stare.

Wait….. but if Yashy already knows that Mike’s taken then….

what was all the fuss about in the later chapters, especially in the summer vacation? Lucy was making such a big deal that Mike doesn’t talk about his girlfriend in front of Yashy.

Love that guy who makes fun of David.

Reminds me of that Family Guy episode where Peter has an old bully from Elementary School, who used to always pants him in front of everyone. Randy would point to him, say, “Ha! Nerd!”, the crowd of people would laugh, then Peter would say in a high-pitched annoying voice “Randy!”

Hope you got that reference, otherwise I look like a ****** right now…Ugh… :P

Hang on. If Yashy knew already in this chapter that Mike has a girlfriend, then why was she so devastated in “Just Beautiful” when Lucy said Mike has a girlfriend…..
