Thursday, December 8

BDBs: One, in Panel 1.

Boobwatch: April appears to have nothing, but perhaps that's because she's standing straight, while RebeccaH is constantly leaning forward.

Panel 1: Gee, the constrast isn't too stark: April in her Patterson-butt-enhancing gray slacks, Becky with her long slender legs sparkling beneath her anime-girl school skirt. And why is it so urgent for Becky to find out about the book report? Does she want to copy April's?

Panel 2: Not sure why Becky's hair is still flying back. But there's the smug, closed-eyes Patterson look again. And when people say "I mean it!!", especially with two exclamation points, they rarely do.

I'm torn. On the one hand, I hate this kind of passive-aggression: don't speak your mind until someone's trying to apologize, THEN drop your hate bombs. But I think I know what this is leading up to. Still, April would do better to wait until Becky says what she has to say. (And somehow I don't think she really means "witch".)

Panel 3: Is Becky supposed to be special-needs, too, that she thinks this would work?

Panel 4: Dammit! Say it out loud, April! Grow a spine already! Otherwise, what is even the point of this?
