    Nod, yes, work vs home does seem to often hold a huge disconnect in expressions of respect. I have a friend who runs a company, very successfully, and yet at home, her husband and kids stomp all over her expecting her to do everything “homemakery.” She sees it, but can’t figure out how to change the script, because hubby doesn’t see that anything is wrong. He doesn’t see her as a CEO, and what she accomplishes every day in the office and the respect she receives from other people. Sadly, it is probably not going to turn out well. And yes, as for us all, Elly would probably get farther with a little more patience and honey, and less vinegar. grin.

    Why thank you! of course, you may. :)

    Actually, I purposely framed it this way to speak to the folks that view the world like this, and since the comic is structured this way, (sexist as you say, since apparantly Ellie owns the kitchen, as John is clueless, my point) and from the comments already posted, the most direct way to get the point across was to have this division of labor. If I had tried to bring it into the 21st century, as I would have preferred, with gender neutral roles, my comment would have been dismissed as just another touchy, radical reaction by the people I was speaking to. So, no worries, I am well familiar with the “liberated new age man” (and woman). Peace.

    Umm. no. So tired of this old sexist canard. Think of it this way, what if Elly was in his shop, and she was “helping?” So she puts the sockets back in the chest wrong, all the tools in the wrong the drawers, tried to use a wood blade to cut a piece of metal, didn’t wipe up the oil that spilled, and then tried to use a tack cloth, and tried to use finishing nails to fasten a miter? John would be just as “frustrated” The truth is, they are married, John is a capable adult, who lives in that kitchen every day, so there is no reason he should not ask and learn how Elly has set up her “shop” so it works best for her.

    This twist is excellent on so many levels. Poor Lupin. We promise, The Intruder still loves you too! And, yay! Intruder and “new boyfriend!”

    Perfect rendition of when our attention seeking cat suddenly realizes they are not getting it from either of us. You can actually see the moment where her little brain calculates if it is worth the stranger danger or not.

    Why is there an extraneous “so” after Chelle? Grammatically it doesn’t make any sense, or was she supposed have a last name in the first panel? and I agree with Johnathan, surprised Pastis didn’t have her from the Seychelles.

    If you go back to last Thursday and this Monday’s strips, Georgia explained she has gone to a traditional short weekly, longer Sunday format. She never had format formula before. There were 3 or 4 panels then too, just more expansive. She always just drew what the story took, with the specials sometimes being marathons every strip. Her website, Georgia Dunn Studios has more info.
