    That’s as silly as telling him he’s not really hungry.

    I KNOW! I KNOW! I tell my wife that there is no way to spoil my appetite(s). Singular or plural.

    Janis might just be concerned that if he does spoil it, he won’t feel like cooking and then she will have to try fixing “Dinner for 1”

    I think after all of the nice hings your appetite has done for you it’s OK to spoil it every now and then.

    As Jerry Seinfeld said: “…as an adult, we understand even if you ruin an appetite, there’s another appetite coming right behind it. There’s no danger in running out of appetites. I’ve got millions of them, I’ll ruin them whenever I want!” :-D

    My observation is that couples at their age of maturity typically don’t have sandwich ingredients just hanging around. Meals tend to be planned to provide structure and prevent waste.

    I say, I have another appetite right behind this one.

    Point number 2: Don’t treat your spouse like a 6 year old.

    I’ve discovered that no matter how hungry I am, after I eat for 15 or 20 minutes, I loose my appetite. Weird huh?

    Folk in my household can do that, eat a big sandwich and then a meal an hour or so later. I’d be filled up for the day with the sandwich.

    She’s so mad in the last panel that she’s causing him to disintegrate.

    Dating from a head injury in my teens, unless I eat so much I am actually in danger of bringing it back up, “just-ate full” and “really hungry” feel the same to me.

    If I make myself a sandwich and ask my wife if she wants one, she always says no. So, if I don’t ask, she gets mad for me not asking.

    @Wjones regarding ink supply:

    Nowadays, cartoon ink is actually made from “pixels”. Pixels are available in unlimited amounts and are attractively priced at “free”. Overuse will result in large amounts of pixel-dust (sometimes referred to as pixie dust). The dust can be recycled and therefore a sustainable product with no threat to the climate.

    The US Government is currently the largest user of pixels. Most of which are used to pay off the national debt. At least, that’s no longer a worry!

    If “to spoil” his appetite is “to reduce” it, then that’s actually his plan, not something he wants to avoid.

    No it’s not a silly comment – many a time I’ve been making a great dinner, ready in about 1 hour, and the person or persons I’m making it for decides to have a ‘snack’. Come suppertime, when everything I’ve been working on is ready, suddenly they are not hungry. And it’s not that they don’t like it, they will wolf it down later. Do they not care about the time and care I’ve put into the meal? Don’t want to eat with me at a set time? It can be so disrespectful!

    It’s interesting that A&J use a bread box. This is something I’ve never understood. Bread will go stale quickly at room temperature so, unless they eat way too much of it, they will have to throw most of it away. I keep mine in the freezer and nuke or toast it when I use it. Voila…. it lasts forever.

    That is what eating is for. To get rid of your hunger. Janis is so dumb.

    Arlo should be like Dagwood Bumstead, make a “Dagwood Sandwich” and still be hungry, or “HONGRY!”

    One of the few nice things about living by myself is I can eat when I want and what I want, also the same with sleeping, I sleep when I want and for however long I want. No more of people thinking they are my boss telling me what to do and when. Those that have read my comments often over the last 2 years know the 2 people I am talking about.

    The older you get, the less likely you are to care about “mealtimes”. We eat supper together but the rest of the day is whatever, whenever.
