    Mike was in a no win situation.

    Kim would throw “I gave up Paris for you” every time they had a fight or argument if he had asked her to stay with him.

    By not asking Kim to stay, she believed the relationship — and therefore Kim herself — wasn’t that the important to him.

    I remember a different Kim statement about her job in Paris. And now is Mike’s fault?

    Sometimes I almost wish I was a cartoon. With genetalia. So, that’s the almost part. Everything is so clean, mostly anyway.

    I’ll bet that she’s left-handed too.

    It means ‘douche’. And not in the French sense.

    If you do not speak your heart, you cannot expect your mind to be read. “No.” is not the worst outcome. This was the worst outcome.

    I was kind of hoping there would be the original strips that ran after 9/11/01 …I had those on the fridge for a long time.

    What part of “I never expected someone like you in my life. The thought of losing you is unbearable!” failed to communicate to her that she really mattered to him?

    Trudeau at his best. Too bad he no longer produces anything of like quality, only supermarket tabloid political garbage.

    It takes at least two to make a relationship. If she wanted it, she had at least as some of the same responsibility as Mike. Ok, Mike is sort of a wuss, but…

    “Bete” with a strategically placed circumflex was a favorite of my high school French teacher but “idiot” means pretty much the same in both languages.

    “iDIOT” IN French IS the same as “hamburger” in French.
