    Okay, I just don’t get this one. The coffee is still brewing so maybe my brain is overanalyzing it.

    He’d rather be biking than at an indoors swimming meet.

    Here I was, thinking that Panel 1 might be their kitchen, but no, we dolly out to a multi-table scene more like a school cafeteria or coffee shop. This relationship has less passion than Dr. Sheldon Cooper.

    At least he should get back home in time to watch Ghent-Wevelgem (if snow doesn’t cause it to be cancelled).

    @Richard, you just don’t remember the 1960s on television, with lots of visual euphemisms so that it looked suitable for children while adults knew exactly what was going on. (Pixar films manage to do that too, though the adult message remains more subtle.)

    Besides, she’s a schoolteacher, and unmarried. Proprieties must be observed. :-)

    I’m sure they had a good “workout” before going for coffee. But the lesson is don’t overcomite when you live in an area of unperdictible weather. Atfer this I intend to go outside and read the hobbit while soaking up the sunshine.

    If you want to fully exercise your body swimming is the best way.

    I spent a brutal 10 years living in Michigan (where Frazz comes from). If you’re a cyclist you cannot WAIT until the first ride of the year. If you have a commitment that happens to be on that first good riding day you’re bummed. NOW do you get it?

    ♪ But with propriety, society will say… marry! ♪
    (Of course, that was long before the fashions came. Now, it might sound a little square.)

    Maybe, but they can’t exactly tongue kiss in front of the little kids. The parents will never stand for it. In a situation of dating someone at work you have to take it slow. If Miss Plainwell is crying during class after a quick fling followed by a bitter breakup it will look unprofessional.

    I read it as an outdoor lake – good for the cycling and running part, but still too cold for the three-mile swim.
