For ROADSIDE

Did April really not get caught making out on the bed? Or are Elly and John still wise to her roadside ways, even though she pushed Creepy Gerald out the back door, presumably to freeze to death or walk some giant distance home?

And didn't it seem when he first came over that Gerald was the instigator and April was not going to be into it? But then she was!

April, you dirty dawg! You know this means you can never, ever, lord your more-Pattersony-than-thou attitude over Becky ever again.

But it on amazon.uk, it's in PAL so you'll have to convert it to NTSC. It's a great movie.

What shall she do about the white zin evidence? WHAT THEN, APRIL? You can run, but you can't hide!

She's "hands on", man. She's a "gig". She's "roadside". She's "been there". (Quoting Lynn Johnston, Jan. 2005.) "An' once you've been there you ain't coming back."

I enjoy this pathetic Foobery more than a middle-aged father probably should, but what the hell is "roadside"? I get the connotation, but the exact denotation eludes me.

I bet you anything she doesn't get caught, but then she feels all bad about it and tells John and Elly.

Like Laura Ingalls Wilder in the book where she starts to go to the swimming hole, but is scared by a badger, and then tells Ma and Pa all about it.

Michael:

No one outside of Lynn Johnston and her lynnions really knows what "roadside" means, but it's one of the many "cool" slang terms she's invented to lend the air of authenticity (??) to the verbal exchanges between the youngsters in the strip.

michael berry:It's Lynn J's lame atttempt at creating Canadian teen slang.

Based on today's strip with Elly peering down the stairs, I think April is busted!

What I don't understand is why she and her beau are freaking about a cab. He got there somehow, right? Can't get get back the same way? (Like on foot?)
