For help on how to follow a comic title,
The size of Bernice’s mouth and the way it is drawn is funny. The silent movie is symbolic of her need to be silent as well as Piro’s craving for it. Hopefully the purpose of these scenes is to portray Bern’s mental reflection as opposed to predicting what will come. Hopefully she is at least struggling with Piro’s request and that she’s starting to see herself.
my hope is that she will battle the urge but resist and eventually win over it.
where will this go from here? i see a battle of loyalities i.e. to your bestie whom you tell everything to? or to the dark and mysterious Piro, possible heart throb, who has confided in you. Luann may not directly encounter Piro when she returns but may see his backside as he is leaving. And she may pester Bern about why he was there.
seems like Piro could have solved his problem by simply moving to another seat in the classroom.
I do think that part of the annoyance on Piro’s part is that Bern didn’t let him finish his sentence before jumping in; I believe she interrupted before he had a chance to finish his thought.
totally agree with what you say; the key, I believe, is finding that balance, that sweet spot, where you don’t feel like you have to jump in immediately with the answer to everything. I notice that there wasn’t a period at the end of his sentence. As my older brother has occasionally said to me (in conversation) “did you you hear a period at the end of that sentence?”
i’m a little concerned that this movie might be some sort of therapeutic film that she accessed from class; i hope not.
no one said he was a “prize” (whatever that is); Piro is just a friend who has confided and placed trust in Bern and if she values that she had better change in a hurry.
Come on Bern; just let him do the talking. You say nothing unless you’re trying to add yourself to a list of people he no longer wants to be around.
Yes, we can’t forget that one. I’m still waiting to hear from Frank about the experience.
