Those tight abs and those bleached toes. Hubba, hubba!
Easy on the comments, Arlo.
No body shaming, not even retroactively.
Arlo has been married too long to make a comment like that.
Dangerous curves ahead.
Janis looks a little startled in the last panel.
I took that differently. I thought Arlo was saying Janis was too skinny back then and that he liked that she eventually ‘filled out’.
Oh, Arlo, Arlo, Arlo. When will you ever learn.
Keep. Mouth. Shut.
Funeral services for the late Arlo will be held…
I read that differently, like Arlo was saying that Janis was too skinny and that he liked that she ‘filled out’.
This is weird, my girlfriend was 101 pounds, when I met her but she had wonderful curves, I was 129 pounds and was considered way too skinny!
She seemed to like me, so eventually we got married!
Been happy ever after though we have both gained a few pounds!
I also think he is complementing her. He likes her filled out.
Oops! No more rock scissors paper for Arlo…
Looks as if those toes had never seen the light of day.
She was a real babe back then.
Too skinny isn’t healthy……..her circulation is off…look at her white toes!
He knows the right things to say!
This thread is attacking Arlo’s marriage skills. But … in the second panel, he did not say “You were skinny?”.
Janis doesn’t seem the nail polish type
How old were A&J when they met? Was it some time after they graduated from college? And she was still skinny then?
Fade to black…
Arlo was just commenting about two or three localities.
Actually that can be taken two ways, as in, I like you best the way you are.
He was probably referring to her boobs.
When I joined the Navy I was 5’11", 119 pounds with a 27 inch waist. After a few months working aboard ship I was 158 pounds with a 30 inch waist. Too bad I still don’t have that stomach and chest.
Even a fish would stay out of trouble if it kept its mouth shut
And why in the H would you want that? Yah dummy.
Smooth move, Arlo! You complimented her powers of perception!
Each guy has a preference for shapes of a girl, though we can see the beauty in all shapes. The face and her shape usually gets his attention first (first test). Her personality comes next (second test) and then the dating cycle starts. However, our personal preference on a shape never really changes. Most guys would appreciate a few extra pounds on a skinny girl, if that brings her shape to his personal preference (ie. Arlo). All that being said, though, it’s the woman’s personality regardless of her shape or size, that keeps the man and visa versa…..
Her toes are very white, too.
Ooooo he’s dead
That is a very nice compliment for Janis, though most women might not think so. I guarantee it is.
At least Arlo isn’t as bad as Jimbo Gumbo from Rose Is A Rose.
Janis always looks good.
That’s a good thing, Janis. Smile. Then, move on.
open mouth; insert foot. The man needs to learn when to stop talking.
He re-ran one of my favorite strips.
Its beautiful, in that a couple are comfortable enough to have tiffs and not split up over them!
My cups, and few other areas, runneth over after 50 yrs, but I still feel the same age somewhere inside my head.
It’s kind of a compliment!
I’m not perfect, but parts of me are excellent. ;-D
What’s on her toes?
