You keep dreaming about the day, and then it happens for real and it's even more wonderful than you'd hoped it would be!

They did it (for a flexible definition of "it") :ugeek:

EDIT: It appears the action in the last panel was initiated by Shawna, judging from Castel's reaction. Go Shawna, get through that neutronium skull.

We're having a heat wave,
A para girl heat wave,
The temperature's rising,
It isn't surprising,
She certainly can can-can.

Jeez, Pickle. When someone is kissing you, the polite thing to do is close your stamen-holes and enjoy it.

I think all her hesitations so far have been her doubting that Shawna would ever be interested in her. This kiss should melt away those doubts!

Sorry, Sarge, but that was about as unpredictable as the general direction of sunrise.

Okay, so if Pickle is 15, and Shawna is Hiroshi's age and therefore IIRC two years ahead of Pickle's Posse, that makes her 17.

And we found out from Atsali and Nadette drinking the spiked eggnog that in the Para world, you are an adult at age 17, so does this mean that Shawna is going to be sent to para-prison for inappropriate physical contact with a minor?

And more importantly, who creates Para laws anyway? And how can they possibly enforce them? And how ridiculously overbuilt would a para-prison have to be?

Yes, but it made several people’s heads explode with Squee.

Besides, I can’t be the only one who expected another few months of faffing about.

In the early 90s, there was a movie called The Sandlot. One of the main characters had a crush on the lifeguard at the local pool, and pretended to drown so he could put the moves on her.

The moment he kissed her, that song you quoted played.

Looks like the next chapter in the life of Castela Enora Gilchrist is about to start. Although, being the more impetuous of the two, I would have thought that Cass would have been the one to initiate the kiss, with Shawna being the one with the look of surprise; guess I would have lost that bet. The next strip should be something like this;
- the first panel we see Katherine preparing dinner, and Cass announces, off panel, that she is home
- second panel we see Katherine turning around, and asking Cass how her day was, and is stops, mid-sentence
- third panel, Katherine's face shows a look of surprise/mild curiosity
- fourth panel we finally see Castella, with an embarrassed face, and sheepish grin, holding hands with Shawna, saying, "weeeeeelllllllll..."
It will also be fun to see how Atsali reacts to this; knowing her, she will not notice it until someone points it out to her. And none of you fret for Hiroshi; I am sure that Paul will find him a nice Para to hook him up with. ;)

I was expecting both of them to go "She can't possibly want me, she's not even into girls because she was trying to date Hiroshi!" for a while until their friends finally set them straight (so to speak)
