Janis says, "You know what I miss? We hardly ever just kiss anymore! Sometimes, I like to just kiss, you know?"
Janis says, "Hey!"
Arlo says, "Are you sure you're not confusing kissing with hugging?!"
Moving in for the kill too fast there Arlo………..
OK, kissing is cool….But it’s better when the rest of the body is involved…
38 years ago kissing sessions with my wife morphed into more than just hugging! Of course that was before the children, which was a direct result of those sessions!
She ought to know by now that, for Arlo, kissing her is not to be taken lightly. The trouble is indeed in different definitions. She meant hugging, which includes semi-kissing. Arlo takes it to mean more like what the aliens do in Alien.
Just kissing? Yeah, right.
If men are supposed to kiss and it leads to nothing else…are women supposed to go shopping, but not BUY anything? They don’t like going home empty handed and neither do we!
Suppose for a sec that Arlo had suggested, “Sometimes I like to iust kiss, you know.”Janis would worry about what was wrong with her.
She says she wants to just kiss. That’s probably true.What she doesn’t want is a man who wants to just kiss.
A kiss is upper persuasion for…
A warm New Year start for Arlo and Janis.
Still into it….that’s cool…..
Keep going Janis!
Puhleeeze, I know what the euphemism means. I am just questioning the specific word. Too hostile. Use “rodeo hugs” – now, there’s a double entendre !!!
Lol! Janis will just have to accept the fact that her hubby is still very attracted to her! And her hands were in his hair, that’s a clear green light.
I hadn’t heard the term “window shopping” for years. Used to be, on Sundays most of the downtown stores would close, and Mom and I would walk along Central Avenue in St. Pete and window shop. It was a Sunday afternoon thing to do for us, and it was fun!
Janis is just worried that ‘French Kissing’ will lead to ‘Australian Kissing’.
What’s she saying hey for, she grabbed him first!?
Janis forgets that to Arlo kissing is a full-contact sport.
Now, hold on just one minute! In the 5th panel I distinctly see Janis’ hand wound around Arlo’s hair. That indicates passion. She’s afraid of loosing control of her feelings and having spontaneous ‘sex’ on the couch.
You know what I miss? Consider that kissing is all I’ve been able to do for the better part of eight to ten years.
Plenty of men lose their libido’s too. And plenty of women are not getting any “you know what” either. I don’t want to “just kiss” but I won’t get a boyfriend or a sailboat either. That’s life.
Men rarely pay attention to their women and what they want. And that’s why they HAVE to ask “was it good for you, too?”
