    Miss Phelps has lied to herself so many times that she now believes it is the truth.

    Aaah, Good ol’ “M.O.M”. (Method Of Madness)!… Mrs. Phelps is an “accidental counselor”, and Bern is getting the advice she sought, but in the usually unexpected way… It’s funny how Bern is Jello, and Phelps is the “brick wall”, here..

    The reassurance phase is proceeding… more than just about what is “sensible”…. the re-estimation of what one has, when viewed from an alternative, perhaps more independent source… the resolution that one’s own flora maintains an ample, if not merely adequate supply of chorophyl type compounds and vert-like, reflective light that in hindsight would prove just as lush, vivid productive and teeming with aesthetic appeal, even if compared to adjacent areas of privately cared-for flora and earthly growths…

    In other words, the grass is not always greener on the other side … Our grass (for the most part) is just fine! ….

    A lie, repeated often enough and loudly enough, becomes the truth. That’s how politics works. It’s also how unwise counselors work…

    “Brought to you” by….

    More Deodorant… “Uh, don’t raise your hand, just yet!…”

    Clique Shoes… “Be you! Be unique! Be a ‘Clique’ wearer!”…

    Water Heel and Sole comfort systems….. "Fluid motion and comfort in every step…. ‘Go with the flow!’ "….

    and by…
    B. Gehnner House Repair… “We’ll get it right by the time we get to your house!”…

    Ms. Phelps isn’t lying, nor is she pretending…

    She’s so comfortable, so used to “not being what others expect her to be”… She’s honest and unpretentious, to the point that she is regarded as unaware….

    But her going through life is the same at moving to the rhythm of a different drummer… people would think that the beat is off… but if you listen closely, you’d see that the beat is “just fine!”…. it’s just not the same style as others, but it serves her just fine…

    It’s like she’s trying to express to Bernice, when you have your own mind, you will be comfortable with who you are, and will not depend on the “general consensus”, but will be your own person…..

    And don’t forget that at the outset of the arc, Bernice was questioning whether or not she was missing something, when shopping with Delta… she’s getting an answer, now.… that she has a good mind of her own …

    The prom is just a “secondary aspect”, a “vehicle” in the development of Bernice, just as there was development of Gunther a bit in the previous arc, among others…

    This strip is called Luann but she hasn’t been in it for quite some time.

    I’ve seen it happen that the Delta-type, with solid thinking, winds up married, and the Bernice-type (who would like to marry) goes on to save the world.

    re: honeysum

    or ends up like a bernice-like girl I knew that got into drugs. Before that she talked about the mission field. After a handful of years of that I assume she did"missionary" and presumably other things in the “films” she was in. Considering I would have cheerfully stopped a bullet for her when I was young and stupid, her lifestyle choices hurt rather a lot.

    Mrs. Phelps, you are a sad, naive, poor shell of an old woman who chose not to explore or live her life and honestly feel sorry for whomever you try to get to follow down your sad doldrum excuse of a life experience….get out of there Bernice and try to have some fun! (Get Delta off her serious/blind to fun @$$ and go stag to the prom and have FUN!)

    Bernice Halper! Do you want to become another Miss Phelps, or do you want to have some fun while you are still young?
    Think carefully before answering….
