And just as luck would have it... the REAL John Tyler High School Class of 1998 was holding their 10-year reunion the same time I put this comic out. I hope they don't mind that I replaced their top two students in this piece of fictional work.
TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - [Home!] (Mom) "Cassie! Bethany!" (CW, hugging mom) "Hey mom!" (BG) "Hi, Mrs. Wells!" (Mom) Well, this is a surprise. What brings you two here?" (CW) "We're on our way to our class reunion in Shreveport, and we wanted to pick some stuff up!" (Mom) "Okay, well... All you school stuff should still be in the closet in your old room." (BG) "Man. It's been years since I've last been in this room." (CW) "Ah yes, my old yearbooks. Here's the one from 1998... (sitting on the bed) Graduation, page 157... Here we go!" (BG, reading) "`Valedictorian Victor Martinez had some very inspiring words for his classmates, challenging them to follow their wildest dreams, trust their instincts, and never lose hear.'" (CW) "I'm not sure I want to hear what they said about me." (BG) "Salutatorian Cassie Wells also gave a nice and positive speech." (CW) "You gotta hand it to the yearbook staff, they sure can polish a turd."
