    I am guessing a bottle of brandy as she seems to be holding a brandy sniffer. Must have had a real bad day from her expressions.

    Spend all day carefully wrapping ‘stuff’ in expensive pretty paper (we save Sunday funnies for much of it), that’s going to be ripped and shredded next Tuesday. You’re ready for that shot of pain-reliever, but it’s already wrapped! He’ll have to unwrap it, since your hands don’t work now…

    You’re right . . . Janis does not look to be in a good mood . . . Arlo needs to be careful here . . . Maybe the brandy will help.

    or…. She had the bottle out expecting a bit after a job well done on wrapping presents and realized afterward she wrapped the bottle also.

    This seems to be one strip that you need to see tomorrow’s strip to make some sense.

    LOL!! Go Janis! To deal with the holidays, these days, is to be in need of a drink!

    Brandy? Looks like she’s ready for cognac! Can’t tell if the glass is warmed, though.

    it took a second she was wrapping all the presents and got frustrated and wanted a drink so she gave him his present early so she could get a drink but is that the only bottle of booze in the house

    Wife resents hubby doing nothing while she has to wrap the gifts. That’s why I do all the wrapping. It’s a small price to pay for Peace on Earth, and Good Will Towards Men, especially THIS man.

    I enjoy wrapping most of the time. It helps when I wrap as I buy the gifts instead of all at once.

    Beware of irritated wives bearing gifts!

    The correct term is brandy snifter.

    My husband means well, but bless his heart, he can barely seal an envelope! He wraps the kids gifts, because they never notice.
