    Thanks a lot for getting her hooked on this, Donna. ___
    Does anyone else MISS the old Mona?

    I floated this one around at my workplace. Once passed the off putting opening remark by Mona. The consensus was that this is very likely an intervention, explaining the presence of Lucas. Just a wild guess, but what are the odds?

    Because “OH MY GOD, A PAP SMEAR IS SO EMBARRASSING!” Really? I do enjoy the strip, and I do enjoy acting like a kid, but it’s a medical procedure- and an important one at that- so, why be ashamed? Sure, you may not have meant to share it, but the guy’s your friend. He wouldn’t really care.

    Never seen Mona with an expression like the one in the second panel, you can almost feel her embarrassment

    Donna has that guilty look. Better ask what she’s been doing.

    I’m reminded of one of my first jobs. I worked swing shift (3-11) part-time at 7-Eleven in college. Not much business late at night during the week, so one stocked the cooler when no customers were in the store. The doorbell rang, I went to the counter, and a blonde woman with a french accent asked where we kept the condoms. No one had ever asked that, and thankfully my boss was in the office in the back. So, I went and got her, because I had no idea where they were. She said she’d take care of it. She showed me where the box of various brands was and got it out. The woman at the counter apparently didn’t read english well, pointed at the contents of the box and asked “what’s the deeferance?” My boss turned beet red and I had trouble not laughing as I went back to the cooler. While I was in the cooler, my boss read the labels on the different types to her. As I think back on that, I have to laugh.

    This one does seem a bit weird. Most of my female co-workers over the years were pretty… gross… in their comments to each other. Even today, one goes to “professional” offices and the female staff compare this or that about their dates and mates in biological fashion.

    The irony is if men spoke that way on the job, they’d be looking for another job.

    Why must they call it a SMEAR? Isn’t that a little graphic? If she’d said, “I’m going in for a Pap test,” that wouldn’t have been so embarrassing, would it?

    What is wrong with being graphic? We have too much in the way of hiding things behind euphemism.
