    I checked back and I still feel I missed something. Where’s the new couch?

    Thinking about nothing is a lot of work and it makes Jack a null boy.

    Arlo gets it right most of the time.

    A slow learning curve is better than none at all…but he’d be better off if he said “sleeping foxes”.

    Would that be sleeping lady dogs?

    This is the cue to “have to run an errand”. “ Nothing” always leads to something.

    Anybody else read this initially with the expectation as to what is typically said instead of Arlo’s play on it?

    Good thought Arlo but give her a hug anyway. Looks like she needs it.

    Let sleeping dogs lie is an excellent maxim; unless you are meaner than the dog.

    In this case “unless you have a good deal of emotional energy to spend.”

    I believe Arlo meant “lying” in the sense of “liar”.

    Janis is obviously lying when she says nothing. Arlo is in no hurry to find out what it is.

    Not a good omen. The Nothing Box is a male brain thing. Whereas women associate EVERYTHING with EVERYTHING. Arlo may be in for a rough time if that has turned off in Janis.

    Don’t worry, she’ll let you know, when you least expect it…

    she’s thinking " if I move this, and put that there, then I can fit this new one there…" redecorating time!

    Whatever “nothing” is, it’s Arlo’s fault… ☺

    I hope she’s feeling ok — looks to me like she’s ill.

    She’s still worried about her age. Arlo should know?

    Deep thoughts are great. No thoughts are even better.

    She’ll tell you or attack you when she is ready to let you know.

    Although, most likely, “I won’t tell you if I have to tell you. You should just know.”

    Nothing usually means something that you don’t want to know about.
