    Better to remember what you wanted to say even if you haven’t found the person yet, than walk into a room and forget why you went there.

    Arlo must be old school if he expects to always find Janis in the kitchen.

    Never happened to me. But I can be credited with a couple “Look! This is what we need for the kitchen… and now I’m going to tell my wife about it… as soon as I find her… nice to meet you… stranger…”

    My husband and I carry on many of these conversations, then when he’s home I forget what we/ me were talking about earlier.

    I thought Arlo was talking to the fridge, and in the second panel suddenly to realise, that the left fridge has already a cover by the second fridge. (Who hasn’t a backup for the holidays in his kitchen, pantry or basement?

    Apologizing to the person you just realized isn’t there!?!? Spoken like a true husband. 8^ )

    Jimmy, please stop peeking in my windows! It has to be that or we are siblings separated at birth. Uncanny.

    On the sad side, my dad told me that he did this for some time after my mom passed.

    I told my wife I was gonna put a bell around her neck to find her. Between the gardens and two floors of a house I get lots of steps in looking for her. Amazon has a key finder thing i may try.

    When I don’t pay attention to what my wife is saying, she’s talking to me. When I pay attention, she’s talking to someone else.

    It’s just like when you finish each others sentences at times. Right Jimmy?

    It is worse when I start talking to my husband in a store and it is some other old man.

    The down side of this is that I am responsible for being part of the conversation whether I was there or not.

    This must be something only married people understand. I have no clue.

    That does happen. It sometimes happens even though my wife passed away in 2019. Sometimes our mind plays tricks on us.

    I saw a kitchen plaque that said, “Marriage is yelling ‘what?’ from different rooms of the house until one of you dies.” To which I’d add, per Arlo’s example, ‘and continuing for a while even after’.
