    Another man-myth shattered.

    Janis, this is a really good time to keep your mouth shut.

    This is when you keep it in the false compartment in the roof of the dog house, unless she found it there again last year…

    maybe it’s a leftover from last year.

    So he buys her a gift earlier than Christmas eve, hides it, she finds it, and she’s still pissed at him. Take a chill pill, Janis.

    I guess she is pissed because he usually explains his below par presents with the poor possibilities of choice when shopping in the nick of time late in the afternoon of the 24th.
    And now she discovers she is just married to a man of bad taste. Which brings to her mind the question of how he chose her for a girlfriend (wife to be). Or maybe I have just been married to that kind of woman too long.

    I can’t be sure she is angry here. More of an “ah ha” kind of denouement.

    That reminds me . . . I need to start thinking about when I’m going to do my Christmas shopping. I guess I still have plenty of time.

    He probably always boasts of how casual he is about shopping and it still turns out fine. In actuality he puts a lot of thought into it.

    You sometimes see this in college where guys will boast of how little they study and still are able to get a good grade. But they will really hide out and study hard for long hours away from prying eyes. They want to be thought of as naturally smart.

    I don’t have that problem. All I have to do it put presents above my wife’s line of sight and she never sees them. She never looks up!

    And here I was going to go with, “She wants to be put on the naughty list for finding her present..”
    .
    A lot of grouchy people today, must be holiday stress.

    I am beginning to think that Janis may be jumping to the wrong conclusion. The box doesn’t appear to be gift wrapped. Would not Arlo have had it gift wrapped at the mall? But, then again perhaps he bought it on line . . .

    I may need Professional Help . . I’m over analyzing a comic strip . . .
