    Hmm. Either Bud refused the job strongly enough, or the school insisted on having faculty chaperones (probably a requirement if this is a school-sanctioned trip, I suppose).

    • RBZ

      Well, if your kids were going on a school trip, you’d want an actuall representative from the school there, wouldn’t you?

    • Killjoy

      Have we skipped ahead to the trip, or are they just “adult supervising” the club meeting?

      • Guesticus

        They are probably in the faculty lounge

        Kinda like whatRBZ said: Bud may be there to provide security, butt they would still need someone from the school administration

  2. Knighttrap

    Woot!!!! I missed Digit!!!

  3. It’s hard to tell whether they mind or not. I can’t read it on their faces.

  4. Guesticus

    Heh heh, they both view things differently, nice 😀

  5. Dave

    “Six Phases Of A Big Project” is very relevant here.

    • FreeFlier

      Six? . . . the version I know calls for seven.

  6. GrantCMcCormick

    Doing well on a difficult project in a competent bureaucracy means you’ll get any similar projects, so long as you continue to do well.

  7. Jeff Weiner

    Now who’s cynical?

  8. Centaur71

    Its Spidey and Maskey!

    • Centaur71

      That reminds me; what kind of Para is Valerie again???

      • Cold Ethyl

        She reminds me of something from silent hill

      • Dave

        I believe she’s a T’chah. Just as vampires tend to go into law enforcement, and werewolves are mostly artists and writers, the Cthulhu-like t’chah usually end up working as educators of some sort. Google-search “Mrs. Edelson” for a well-known example.

        (Paul has not formally confirmed Valerie’s species, as far as I know.)

      • Re: Dave. Gee I feel sorry for Valerie. One of the things that aborted my further education (not the only thing) was that the things I was interested in would involve becoming a teacher—and I never ever wanted to teach.

    • Khyrin

      @Dave
      That was not a kind thing you just did… it took me a good 5 minutes to spot the pun.
      Tee-chah, right?

    • Dave

      Why, yes, that’s how it’s often pronounced (he said innocently, buffing his nails and knowing that his work here was done for the day.)

      They’ve been around for a long time, and you can trace their presence in human culture through their effect on our languages. It even goes back to ancient Sumerian… “téš(-a)…sì-ke” means “to come together, to make agreement”, reflecting the role of the t’chah as negotiators. In Proto-Indo-European, “*teks” means “to fashion, to construct”, once again relating to the transmission of skills.

      • Centaur71

        So then, Val’s race was based in SUMER-time??? *rimshot*
