    To jump or not to jump… That is the question!

    In the words of the awesome 80’s band Van HalenMight as well… JUMP! ;)

    It will interesting to see where this goes.

    If her parents don’t give her the money, Luann can say she can’t go because she can’t afford it…which would be true. She looks embarrassed in the second panel but brightens up when she thinks her father might support her sky-diving adventure. I don’t think she’s sure whether she wants to do it…but she’ll have to at least show up for this arc to come to a conclusion either way.

    I have wondered if skydiving would be for me. Never made plans, just in the back of my mind, I wondered.

    BUT I recently found out I have a joint disease and there’s a problem with my vertebrae in my spine. I don’t know exactly what this means except that right now, sometimes my back hurts.

    So – skydiving is off the table!

    Luann’s expression says she’s doing it under pressure and her words validate that. She’s just doing it cuz she wants to save face and pretend to be as brave as Tara and Piro. Who knows? If she sticks with her pretense, she might discover she enjoyed the experience and would open herself to being a little more adventurous and experience life a bit more. So far we’ve seen her spend her time at home or at school. She leads a pretty boring life. Maybe this skydiving experience will awaken her adventurous side. Her attraction to Piro just might do her a favor.

    Frank’s thought balloon is a little inaccurate. No one jumps alone the first time or for several after. And you have to be trained. Look like Luann is a little reluctant herself. They should all do a little homework 1st.

    This could go two ways, with two lessons:

    -dont jump. Always listen to your mother and stay safe in her little best.

    - jump. There is little real risk, and even little birds need to spread their wings if they will ever soar. OTOH, do it because YOU think it’s a good idea

    Luann’s attitude is contradictory. With Nancy she regrets the decision made with Tara and Piro, but hearing Frank being so supportive she seems to found courage and see the funny side. The idea of skydiving both attracts and scares her. Frank could calm her down and help her control her fear. I would love for Luann to try new things, I think it would be good for her. But if she really wants to go skydiving just so she doesn’t feel left out by her friends and she’s actually very scared of it, there’s a problem here.

    This is where Frank should volunteer to go skydiving with her. But, of course, making sure the toilet seat is down is a lot more action than he’ll ever do.

    This seems a lot like one of Joe Hill’s (Stephen King’s son) short stories I just re-read titled Aloft. A guy went skydiving because a woman he loved was going. But then he gets caught on this strange “cloud” that was solid and would form things that he needed. Even food or drink but the problem was when he ate or drank that stuff it was like eating shards of glass and made him bleed. He finally gets off the cloud. You never know if he gets back home or not.

    Frank wants Luann to do it if Luann wants to do it, but not because other people are doing it. Doing stuff because other people area doing it leads to regret, as does not doing something you want to do because you were afraid.

    How did this come up? Did Luann ask them for the money? If so, she needs to be more budget conscious (with other people’s money), and there’s nothing wrong with being sensible. Doing something dangerous that you really don’t want to do just to fit in with your friends is not mature thinking.

    No, I think Frank is making the point that she’s only doing it because they are, which is not a good reason.

    She’ll probably think better of it, especially when Piro and Tara start BASE jumping. (Buildings, Antennae, Spans and Earth, or bridges and cliffs)

    OMIGAW! Did any of youse guys and gals know:

    " C. Gregory Evans (born 1961), known to all as “Greg” is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and lifetime advocate for the business aviation industry." Yes, AND, “Evans is also a proud supporter of his alma mater, the University of St. Thomas., where he graduated with a double major in business administration and consumer behavior marketing.”

    That’s where he got the chops (and chips, being born to an aviation family) to write this blockbusting strip! More than just a success story about Right Place- Right Time. More about the Right Stuff. WTG, Dr. Double Major CGE!

    And we are all here, contributing feedback to the script and his marketing genius. And I was a fool, thinking many cartoonists don’t write from experience, but from Don’t Know How, Can’t Do but Can Teach.

    He writes about what he knows, here. And Skydiving is perfectly safe, even drunk with post-adolescent lust over some dude or dudette, even with all the air traffic controllers given the pink slip by the Ronnie Ray-Gun administration.

    For you see, to play geriatric and plagiarize the Living-Legends-Of-Aviation site I wrote my term paper on here, Mr. Greg:

    “In various leadership roles with the National Business Aviation Association, Evans was instrumental in defeating legislation calling for the so-called privatization of air traffic control system by the airlines. In recognition, he was awarded the prestigious NBAA Silk Scarf Award in 2019.”

    Anyone fighting the plague of Privatization can make a buck off me. Take that, Ronnie (“Star Wars” proponent and Darth Vader mime) Sir Ronald the Ray-Gun.

    Disclaimer: No, I am not a shill. I just would like a free Primo membership. Not gonna happen. This guy sounds clean as a wind sock.

    Is she going to wear a red beret so that she can become a British Parachute Regiment “Red Devil?”

    Their Colonel-in-Chief used to be HRH the Prince of Wales — before he ascended to the Throne. Now I’m not sure who it is.

    Anyway, when HRH got the appointment, he showed his support for the Regiment by taking the Parachute Regiment’s Officers’ Training Course, including the mandatory number of jumps to qualify for his wings.

    One of the course’s requirements is that NOBODY can walk outside a barracks or a building. They have to run. One time HRH emerged from a building, slapped on his red beret, and began to walk, and a sergeant spotted him. Unlike sergeants in most of these situations in the Parachute Regiment’s OTC, he did not yell at the top of his lungs at the miscreant, recognizing that HRH was his future Colonel-in-Chief and Sovereign. The sergeant astonished everyone by quietly walking over to HRH and reminding him to start running and “set an example.”

    The chastened prince did so.

    I did it. Exactly once, after extensive training. Thankfully, there was a static line that pulled the ripcord after I was literally thrown out of the plane as I completely forgot everything I learned in the training – well, I did successfully execute a PLF (Parachute Landing Fall), but that is it. I haven’t thought about this for decades. Good luck, LuAnn.

    a big takeaway (for me) is that Piro and Tara are on their own (essentially); they make their own decisions; they don’t have parents to run to when in a quandry, like Luann, and if they are going to try skydiving then they probably have the $ from job earnings. Luann could really be figuring this out on her own like lots of 19 yr olds (who have accessible parents) but are learning to decide things on their own. I am surprised that Nancy is being so protective instead of letting Luann make up her own mind. If she doesn’t have the $ that’s one thing but that doesn’t seem to be the issue here…. yet.
