Wow. A surprising burst of kindness from Mike. Yet, STILL short-lived. The suspense!

I am enticed by the idea of PauloxLucy because Paulo is so natural around her, but I still feel too damn faithful to MikexLucy. They’re totally meant for each other.

PauloxLucy would never work. They would be one of those couples that screams at each other in public and is constantly breaking up and getting bacjk together and dragging everyone through the drama.

They would be Italians, basically.

I’m sorry that I’m commenting on, like, every page. This is prolly my tenth time reading and I want to get a point across.

Lucy will always be my favorite character. I think the people who hate her are really supportive of the people she “abuses” like Mike. But that’s just her defensive mode.

I think re-reading the comic and really pushing opinions out of the way is a refreshing way of gaining new insight on the characters. For example, I absolutely hated Abbey a while back ago. Now that I’ve re-read the comic, I’ve realized that Abbey’s attitudes towards some things are rational.

The situation Abbey was in a long time ago made him the way he is today, and I just can’t blame him for that. Same with Lucy :)

To be honest, I think Mike the noodle is super cute. Hmm…maybe some macaroni and cheese company should make BCB macaroni with all the characters’ faces 8-D
