Author commentary

Veronica: ****** actually has a little brother that is a bit similar in terms of the pets.. he sneaks into ******’s bookbag when she’s going to school so she’s at times forced to take care of him.. hence why ******’s trying to feed him in this page.

Tess seems to constantly have an almost ovalish-looking head. That’s annoying.. good thing that changes soon enough, but I was still trying to get used to drawing her at this time! You can tell even further because her whiskers disappear in panels six, seven, and eleven!

Also man is this the most awkward moment or WHAT.

Anyway, why does she still hang around Mike? She must be a glutton for emotional punishment.

I get a mental picture of David singing “Food glorious food” and just pirouetting past, hearing them and chiming in his awkward to the song Also…it’s high school, the lunches can sometimes have a habit of moving and singing :P.

It’s as awkward as a llama doing the polka on a basketball singing the national anthem making a PB&J Sandwich all on a Wensday during school hours.

Is Lucy’s own food seriously hitting on her? xDD This school has some insane ingredients!

Oh man, Mike! It would have been bad enough without that second to last panel, but actually mentioning the name -> DEATH

Right after that last panel I imagine Michael recieving the same treatment that Paulo got one page ago…

8-)stuff that you never say to girls ;)
1.- you never confused a girl with other girl
2.- you never compare them
3.- the most important, you never say that she is fat, ugly or old (if your say that…YOUR ARE DEATH)
