    Whose comic relief? Yours, maybe?
    -
    I expect Lynn Johnston is going for the comic relief of her readers and not just me. While it is an interesting thought that 29 years ago Lynn Johnston was thinking just of my laughter when she created these comic strips, I somehow doubt it. If you don’t find Elly and her mom Marian going head-to-head on household and parenting issues to be funny, then you are not going to get many laughs out of this comic strip for the next several weeks. Forewarned is forearmed, as they say.

    she already moved the “adult” items from the bedroom to the “safe” place….

    Trust me there will never be to many chemistry majors or engineers.
    -
    That’s true. The number of engineers graduating from US universities peaked in the mid-1980s and has been steadily declining in spite of the fact that the job needs in those fields have been steadily increasing. My son is majoring in engineering and I told him the nice thing about that field is that where he goes is less important than the degree. Now my daughter is thinking about being a music major, and with that major, where you go to school is extremely important because there are so few paying jobs outside of music education.

    Actually, Luann, what you do is knock out the general education courses that everyone has to take, so you are making progress towards getting a degree (or degree to transfer). English and Algebra may be dull, but they were probably Gen-Ed courses. Frank is right that you can take a bunch of classes but they won’t get you anywhere unless you also take the classes that move you towards graduation.

    I’m sure she cleaned more than that. Maybe that’s all you saw, Michael.

    I have a different feeling about this storyline. I suspect Grandma Marian is going to be shown Elly’s deficiencies as a housewife and mother several times for the purpose of comic relief.

    My grandparents were probably in that same age range and I don’t remember any such thing…
    -
    Clearly your grandparents were masters of laugh concealment, since you never noticed it. Grandma Marian with her obvious hand gesture to barely cover her laugh, is a rank amateur compared to your grandparents.

    And Grandma is hiding a laugh behind her hands.
    -
    Grandma came from a generation in which the women did not laugh in public or in front of their grandchildren. It just wasn’t right. It’s good she is concealing that laugh.

    Luann is an adult, does daddy really have to check her grades?
    -
    If he’s paying for the school, then the grades are a good indication if she is actually doing something in school, or spending all her time in the prop closet with Quill! or working on the sets for his drama productions or hanging out in Bernice’s dorm room, and not getting any schoolwork done. We already know Luann had a grade issue in high school or she would be at Moony Uni like the rest of her friends.

    My son is actually taking Human Sexuality PSY 216 next semester. There are no square dancing choices at his school.

    No dad. The question is ask is “Now that you have a semester done, how about letting me know what your grades are.”
