Tara knows Luann is a good person. She told her about Stella and HER messes and let Luann help her out. So why wouldn’t she want to let Luann get to know Piro better and help HIM out??
Seems like Tara wants to keep Piro to herself.
I would love to see a 4th panel where Luann says, “Who I talk to is… none of your biz!” lol
As a moth to the flame
Let’s put it this way, Luann: would you feel comfortable talking about your family troubles with Tara?
Very assertive Luann. A bit forward too.
Tara is making this seem so difficult. Luann looks ready enough to get chummy with Piro. What’s the hold up GnK?
You can’t rush getting to know someone. Trying to push it probably wouldn’t end well. Hey Luann, start by just finding out what message Piro wanted you to give Bernice.
Another face-palm moment…
Luann believes she is the chosen one, always knows what to do, She is wrong.
Tomorrow, Tara tells Luann that her Cuz has a fixation on Bernice and for Luann to cool her jets while they work that out? Ibetcha! 8^ )
If Luann does get a chance to speak to Walt-Piro, he will probably only ask her some questions about Bernice, like he did before in Ms H’s class when they first ran into each other.
Welp, time to write a bodice-ripping merman novel starring Walt Starrfish or something.
How many times over the years has Bernice done the exact same thing as Tara is doing in the last panel?
You “don’t share your family’s messes with strangers??”
Well, seeing that you’ve only known that Walt-Piro was “family” for exactly five minutes, and seeing that like it or not, you’ve already “shared” your cousin Stella with the DeGroots, what’s the big deal about Luann knowing more about your new-found cuz, Bernice? Uh, I mean, Tara?
More importantly, isn’t it up to Walt, NOT You, to decide what Luann knows about him??
I agree with Tara, Luann you can’t go gangbusters in and say hi I’m Luann and one of Tara friends nice to meet you Walt.
someone hose her down please!
“But I can FIX him!”
Oh, boy. Who is PUSHY now? Luann seems too interested in Piro – because of his history with Bernice or just the typical moody and smoldering boy persona Piro is emitting? AND there’s the fact they’re in a CLASSROOM and they never seem to be paying attention to the teacher or taking notes or whatever. Does GNK even KNOW what goes in a classroom? Professors will NOT put up with chatting students. They will call them and instruct them to leave the class and mark them absent for all the chatting and being largely absent from active participation in class. I did that to a few students like Luann and Tara when I taught at community college. Unfortunately, I couldn’t do the same with high school kids. I could only give them no points for lack of participation, but I can’t ask them to leave the classroom. That’s the plus side of being a college professor and their professor ought to take advantage of that.
Sit down, Luann Degroot, HER motivation to help is driven by her need to fix !
So who’s will is going to prevail here, Lu’s or Tara. Both are strong-willed, although I’d give the edge to Tara, but I bet Lu will find a way to try. If Walt even let’s her; it is intriguing how he might react if Bern comes up. Actually, if Lu would just become “woke” her instincts as an investigative reporter, or would it be more accurate to say Bern has those instincts, more"truth" might come out. Hilarity will ensue, but we need to find out more about the lad.
Sit? She wants to rollover and beg.
Bottom line: Luann is acting like a stupid, stupid girl..
You know a situation in “Luann” is volatile when Tara is the one hoping to avoid drama.
Those two dark silhouettes in the first panel – I would like to find out what their story is.
Luann is not being a supportive friend; she is just lookin for some juicy gossip she can share with Bernice.
I guess now that we have Piro to obsess over we don’t have to worry about the “Peek of Passion” and who the author was. Unless I missed something the storyline was a red herring that didn’t lead anywhere. We can assume that Nancy and Bernice went to the book reading without LuAnn and the author was no one worth noting. Same thing with the broken window at the mansion. It got broken. and fixed with no problem. The dorm storyline may still come back to see how the new roommate situation is working out and the guests that are allowed at the Gulag may still be a continuation for the future.
Butt out dear, not everything is easily fixable, and some is nunya.
Strong hand grip?
The wrong presentation of a good intention is most likely the first step in a confrontation
Usually Tara isn’t so stubborn with Luann and it seems to me that going to talk with Piro is a great idea. Maybe what happened to Piro is too traumatic and a direct approach would make him run away (which has happened several times in the past)? But even so, Tara seems to be overprotective and to projecting herself into her cousin’s life problems. I hope the conversation with Luann continues and she’ll explains herself.
Luann would make a good journalist. She pushy and sometimes thinks her desire to know is more important than the well being of her subject. Now all she needs is to see to if she learns to write.
Luann…. Pushy, pushy, pushy…
Don’t sit. Run as fast as you can from Tara and Walt. They have been trouble ever since they have been introduced in this comic.
Yow! Yow! Yow! LuAnn is about to go Ann ❤️ Eiffel on Pyro. You go, girl!
Luann, just sit down and drop the issue, okay?
Who could be stranger than Luann?
It’s a free country, Luann can go talk to Piro. How much he was going to tell her WAS going to be his decision, but now Tara is going to tell his story without his permission.
Lu is definitely stranger.
Tara; are you implying that your family’s messes would clash with the mess Luann is?
Piro is gay. Tara doesn’t want her to force him out.
Tara let her go……..
For someone decent looking, Luann sure can be ugly.
With a nickname like Piro, he must have done time for arson
Am I hearing west virginia blu grass music here?
Luann is being selfish here…not really trying to help anyone out but herself. Tara sees it for what it is.
Every problem has a simple solution.
I’m on Tara’s side on this one. When it comes to family messes and drama, it’s super complicated. Some people, like Tara, will talk about it (though I imagine even she leaves stuff out) and some like Piro take it so personally they’d rather not talk about it all. Luann’s hormones are on the march again, so her best judgement isn’t kicking in at the moment.
Good thing LuAnn’s friends are smarter than she is.
If I heard that some guy was “messed up”, I would go the other way. I have no desire to get involved with messed up people. Their problems will only infect my life and I don’t need that. There are plenty of emotionally healthy people to interact with.
I wonder if Piro knows that Tara is Howdy Doody’s twin sister?
Luann is exactly a kind of person whom I would not share my private information with, if I want to have them remain private.
Not a good idea Luann.
Very bad form indeed on her part just to satisfy some inane curiosity and not really caring about her friend…..
And the winner for nosy busybody is …… Luann De Groot
I’ve been without power for most of a week so I’m catching up with things. A question, didn’t Tara’s hair stand up more, like a buzz-cut? The ends of her hair is jagged but the top looks as smooth as Tiffany’s helmet hair.
As Tara knows, one’s backstory is not for other people to spill. If Piro was to talk he’ll talk but Tara isn’t.
Gossip Girl is getting a good lesson in not being a Gossip Girl.
Luann is a socially inept dorky girl regressing to a near-infantile state. Yes, reign her in, Tara!
