it’s not about

[2011 edit: in the image that was originally posted here, which isn’t available online, Luann of the comic strip says goodbye to Aaron Hill, the character she’s had a crush on for all 20+ years of junior high, because she’s moving away, and he kisses her goodbye.]

if you want an explanation, i can try, but i’ll have to channel me-at-fifteen-or-so to do it, and that might be scarier than it’s worth. susan danewitz would connect the dots by commenting about aaron hill that “he has a small nose.” & i never drew a scroll, although i cross-stitched a drum-design, wrote reams of notes and sappy poetry and fill-in-the-blank quizzes (way before memes on lj, thanks!), & made over the years probably a sleeve’s worth of friendship bracelets!

I can feel puberty coming back…
Luann was my favorite comic strip during my teenage angst years…I identified with her inability to get the cute guy and reveled in her success when she finally did…then I’d start to cry because I was overwhelmed by hormones and knew that it was just a stupid comic strip. Ahhh…the memories…

I once wrote a guide for a gf titled “Susan’s Body, Susan’s Self.” (That she required an illustrated guide speaks volumes…that she still didn’t get speaks entire LIBRARIES)…
