    Arlo should know better than to say anything at all. Doghouse time is here.

    Perhaps just from a different point of view or angle?

    No, he’s not in the doghouse. Janis is playfully swatting him because Arlo’s dogging her, and being suggestive!

    Hard to miss Janis’ sexual connotation: “You get that every year…..Don’t you want something different?” To which
    Arlo hesitates and then says, “Well…”, suggesting that he might like a change (kidding I’m sure). She swats him as though he were suggesting a 3some, new lover, etc. (In like manner, she is playfully hitting, knowing he’s happy with what he has.)

    Perhaps we see Janis wearing a blond wig next Christmas Eve??

    Don’t ask a question you don’t know the answer to.

    My take: Arlo’s just thinking up new variations, not new faces (or hair, or whatever).

    A while back, a fellah parked his Harley next to my Shadow, sharing the car slot parking space. I thanked him for making my bike look better by parking there, and he laughed. As we chatted, he told me his wife called his Harley the “mid life crisis” machine. I told him, tell your wife that a Harley is a sign you’ve ‘arrived’ at a place in your life, but a mid life crisis was having an 18 year old girlfriend instead of your wife of 20+ years as a back rest.
    Next time I saw him, his wife was with him and we shared a good laugh.
    Janis might consider buying Arlo the Karma Sutras for Valentines Day, and then it can be Christmas all through the year.

    this is why on ComicsIDon’tUnderstand suggestive comics that make it into the paper go on the Arlo Page.

    In any case, as long as it’s some thing different and not some one, Janis doesn’t have anything to worry about.

    Some traditions should be carried out all year, unless it’s a “super-special” (i.e. Birthday, 4th of July, St. Swithin’s Day etc.).

    In the interest of more open communication he can say it.

    Whatever it is, I hope he gets it more often than just at Christmastime.
