Best Friend Awareness Failure.

I think that it's fairly safe to say that when the strip ended, Josef Weeder ended up wearing the dubious crown of being Mike's best friend. This development was rather true to life because, hey, there was no way that Mike, Lawrence and Gordon were going to anything that wasn't drift apart after they turned twenty. It's natural that Mike is going to buddy up to someone who he sees himself as having somethin in common with so watching Weed take center stage makes the strip that much more realistic.

The problem is that we're dealing with a creator who's kind of sentimental and kind of makes a heathen god of elementary school. To her way of thinking, Mike had to marry someone he knew in first grade because the truest loves are not born in the adult world but in classroom halls, the earlier the better. This grade school fetish gets me to thinking that if Mike were to asked who his best pal was, it's really easy to believe that he'd get it totally wrong and pick Lawrence beause he knew him longer.
