    @TEMPLO S.U.D.

    I’d say that he’s finally caught on, templo SUD. He’s learned to tell Elly exactly what she wants to hear, period.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    This was another strip that encouraged moms from all over to commiserate.

    These kinds of fibs are allowed by law. Law of being married.

    If momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.

    If they don’t tell you these things to see if you notice and you don’t say anything, YA’LL are in trouble.

    Now that John finally did (said) the right thing, I hope Michael doesn’t “spill” it!

    I was waiting for him to gripe about how much all that cost.

    Mom wants son to never lie, but wife wants husband to always lie.

    I don’t see a difference either — except she has a smile on her face that would quickly fade if he said he didn’t see a difference.

    My wife always looks great to me, even when she thinks she looks like crud

    I do notice the difference when she’s “fixed up” but to me the difference in merely in style, not attraction

    A woman always FEELS better when she has taken the time to relax and be pampered, even tho’ there is no physical change. Im just glad that my man and I see each other though the eyes of love, and he looks every bit the same to me as 30+ years ago (when we first met). And from conversations with him, it seems that he sees me in that light as well. I think that if I am all he needs to feel . . . then – so much the better! ;-D

    What’s bad is when they look worse than normal after a makeover. You have a problem: lying is wrong, so you have to be honest, but nice about it. In other words, she’s put you in a no-win situation.

    I always hated these situations. I always felt that true beauty lies within and radiates from the heart and soul. When my woman would ever get that shallow and insecure, I would do my best to build them up. But the truth is, sometimes the jeans do make their fannies look fat and so do genes. And some makeovers are done by lousy make-up artists and hide the true beauty that is already there under an obvious lie.

    Having said all that, I had a misadventure with my wife’s hair some years back. She has very fine and straight hair. It doesn’t take well to perms and neither do they enhance her face. I love the way my wife looks, even now after many, many years. Not long after we were married, she came home with a tightly curled perm. Her hair had been cut short in the process and it looked like a poodle’s pompadour. I made the mistake of saying so. It cost me, I’ll tell you that.
