Even Paul had Nudge and her sister jump to the conclusion that Monica had broken up with Kevin. If even his characters were confused and made that assumption why were we in the wrong for doing it as well. Agreed a lot of us put anchors out to the windward because Paul has burned us so many, many times; but it was still a valid thought. After all we didn't have Monica right here with us to correct it at once. Instead Paul let us ramble on for a long time before reigning us in. So good odds Paul did this on purpose just to shake all of us up and see what floated to the surface.
Ambush questions are fun. Watching the mental impact of them as they distort, or crumble, opinions based on faulty logic.

Really happy to see it wasn't Kevin that left Monica. Sometimes early loves make the deepest impressions on us, I know I still remember how I felt when my first "true" love broke up with me after I had to move away with my family and how that affected me in my conversations with her when she found me after 37 years on FB.

YAY!!!! Cue Paul for the Friday reveal!!!! This is way better than a cliff hanger!!!! Knowing how Monica and Kevin are, I'm surprised she didn't poit in there with him!!!

I really have to wonder.

Are Nudge and Tsillah mirroring the reactions in yesterday's thread, or did yesterday's thread anticipate Nudge and Tsillah's reaction today? 8-)
Whoever coined the phrase "more fun than a barrel of monkeys" obviously never spent an afternoon cramming the little buggers into one.

Or she poited from her shopping spree (either in this mall or another one) over to Nudge and Tsillah because they'd contacted her with the intent to ask her to speak to Atsali... :)

Well, in a sense, Monica did lose Kevin. Just not the way all of us, Nudge, and Tsillah thought.

A couple of points of order:

1. We knew about the pencil incident years and years ago. (Femoral Artery Incident)

2. We now know why she's always wearing that band-aid. (She keeps nicking the faint edges of the scar when shaving her legs.)

3. Jason Goodnow has to be the dumbest person on planet earth.

This is why I try to keep my speculating relatively low-key. With most of my reading, comics, literature, TV Tropes, and so forth, I'm usually in it for the ride. But here, half the fun is the forum.

I'm glad Kevin's still around, he'll make a good substitute for Shelly in the "You're such a dork sometimes" department.

OK, I only just now went back through the remaining posts from yesterday and discovered Paul's deus ex machina regarding our concern over Kevin, and all I can say is GUILTY! I am indeed one of those nerdz...

WOO-HOO!!! I am so glad to have been wrong.

But of course it was someone else than the one who we thought Monica was talking about.

Considering how well known Monica is among paranormals, her spotty poiting skills might be well known too. So if he did appear in an occupied stall it might go like:

*poit*
Occupant: <looking up> "Monica?"
Kevin: "Uh ... yeah."
Occupant: "Figured. Tell her hi from Clara."
Kevin: "Umm, okay. Gotta go."
Occupant: <giggles>
Kevin: <smiles> "No pun intended."

Those were Jin's poiting skills, not Monica's. Jin has been doing it longer, so she is better at it. . .

Monica is selling herself short, as usual. If she can overcome all the problems she's had AND achieve her current level of stability and happiness AND become a demi-god AND have a smoking hot, loving boyfriend, I'm pretty sure she could give some good advice to Atsali.

(She was a self-mutilator, too? Wow. The Demon world and Maya should be glad M doesn't hold grudges. Given how much they messed her up and how much pain they caused her, if she believed in payback some of them would be in trouble.)

The mall is restricted to paranormals right now. The restrooms may not be as crowded as normal. Of course, poiting in on the WRONG paranormal might get someone blown through a wall...
Meh, it could have been worse. Every Mall has a fountain (wet location) and a parking garage (moving vehicles) and a trash bin (no explanation necessary)--so ladies room = not so bad (although I would imagine poiting into a stall occupied by Phix would require a change of underwear or an undertaker--I've seen what she does to vampires, can you imagine what she would to a peeping tom?)

Even a norm that happened to would probably develop levitation skills, if not teleportation, on their own...

Excellent Paul, well done. Glad to see Kevin back and arms full - as predicted. And it looks like Monica is acting like Aunt Clara with her poiting. I've been thinking that, perhaps before speaking with Monica, send Kevin in first to talk with Atsali and give her a "Guys P.O.V." that not all guys are A**H**es, and even if she has some of her Mothers 'attributes' she may have some of her Dads. Also let her know she not only can come to Mama Katherine, but she can talk with Monica anytime just to let Atsali know shes not another 'Pixie with a rack'. ;)

Count me in the 'relieved she didn't mean Kevin' group. Though I'm not sure how we weren't supposed to read that into yesterday's comic. There must have been an 'at that age' implied in her sentence that didn't come cross, at least to me, very clearly. I supposed we should be glad yesterday's comic wasn't posted on Friday. :o Oh, and if we're nerds for thinking it was Kevin was the boyfriend in question what does that make Nudge and Tsila? :ugeek:

*sigh* what do we have? 48 or so more hours to go? :|
