    Kids don’t seem to have any trouble figuring out the difference between 1/8th of a cake and 8/72nds.

    @david_42

    Would 8/72nds be a ninth?

    Not everyone has a cellphone. I, for instance, have NEVER owned one. Haven’t found where I’d have a use for one.

    You are one of the lucky ones. We don’t have a landline anymore. Everyone has a cell.
    I left mine at home today, and feel out of touch with the world. (There is a phone right here on my desk, but no one calls it)

    Fritzi may think that Phil thinks she’s talking about “home” work, such as a ring on her finger.

    Maybe because parents aren’t supposed to DO the homework. Just help the child understand HOW to do the homework. At least that is the way I’m understanding it. :)

    If it’s Mr. Fumble calling, she’ll be at the phone in about ½ of a second.

    Land line phones did it to themselves.
    I was at Lambert (St. Louis) one time and wanted to make a call home. The pay phones needed several dollars!
    So, drove out to Belz Mall (suburban Wentzville) and made the call for 50c.
    Wasn’t it the frequent fliers that first started going to cell phones?
    The only reason I still have a land line is to call up the cell phone when it is misplaced, to hear it ring. Land line is off hook most of time to thwart the solicitors/telemarketers.

    Fractions:
    If a hen and a half can lay an egg and a half in a day and a half-
    how long does it take two hens to lay two eggs?

    Nancy doesn’t seem to be pushing for there to be an Uncle
    Phil! Is jealousy rearing it’s ugly hear?

    Well, to me, it goes something along the lines of Nancy not wanting Aunt Fritzi to be interupted until she’s finished helping her.

    @SUSAN NEWMAN,

    Sorry I’m “late to the party,” but wanted to chime in that in agreement with blunebottle, I would further submit that Fritzi is probably a combo of shocked and surprised to have gotten herself stuck, walking right into a “trap”, seeing as how she would have made herself available, but Nancy took it upon herself to declare her “booked up”.

    Phil could assume she was helping Nancy, but I guess that’s what made the strip so funny today because it could have more than one outcome. I think she’d want/expect to get up to speak to him then (in case it’d be a long time between his next, ahem, ring….on the phone, lol.) but probably so flabbergasted at Nancy’s turning the tables and maybe how the “teacher become the student:”. Or the “parent suddenly became the child”. In effect, .the outrageous comedy of the adult being denied the privilege of talking to her own beau.
