Man, Rudy’s just batting a thousand these days… -_-

Anyway, we jump ahead a little bit to the weekend (they really are going to this party eventually, I swear!) as Kylie at last meets the group for costume shopping, just as Rain promised. As per usual though, things take no time in getting awkward.

This might sound strange, but I like this page a LOT simply because this is the first time we really see the four main characters hanging out together as friends… and well, Kylie who’s coming to the forefront more than even I initially expected.

The joke here was actually kind of haphazard. In my head, I imagined Rain trying to beat around the bush with Pig Latin, just in case Kylie was trying to overhear (not that anyone’s ever been fooled by Pig Latin). It was a funny coincidence that I didn’t anticipate that it came out with the word “gay” tacked on at the end. So, this actually worked better as a joke because it worked worse as a concealment plan. Hell, I can’t even remember the original punchline anymore. I love it when things accidentally work out like that. ^_^

As a final note, just in case not everyone’s familiar with Pig Latin - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pig_latin

Oh my god, that outfit of Rain's, it's adorable. I'm actually going out while presenting for the first time in a few weeks and I kinda stole that outfit, it's just so pretty.

What's Rain talking about? That was PERFECT Pig Latin!

Sorry to be a grammar nazi (especially about pig Latin), but wouldn't it sound more like "ender-jay" since gender is pronounced with a soft G sound?

I have to say, I could not stop laughing at ender-gay the first time I heard it lol

Me. I'm the one. Pig Latin is all about keeping secrets from me.

Which makes it hilarious that all of my associates in high school that used it around me seemed to use it to try to communicate *to* me. It's all good, though. The people they were trying to conceal their message from helpfully translated for me after it became clear to them I just couldn't get it.
