    Bern is working on so many false pretenses. She needs to get her head checked.

    Oh the other hand, he’s got his eye on her, so I hope that develops.

    That’s right, Bern! What you were wearing, what you thought was a “Star-catcher”, was really a “Dandruff -and -Sweat Catcher”! -You’ve been sniffing someone else’s combination of shampoo and aftershave… – With the look on Bernice’s face, Gunther’s going to find he’s a radio station with low ratings…she’s most likely going to “tune him out”, and as they sip coffee, she’ll probably be drinking a cup of “letdown”, instead….

    -It’s hard to tell which is the most out of touch with reality, Bernice or Gunther.

    Bernice is distraught over the idea that Piro is interested in Tiffany, when all Piro seems interested in is finding a place to crash. (And why should he stay with Bernice when she originally gave him grieve about violating the rules?)

    Meanwhile, Gunther, intent on his idea that Bernice is the best match for him because they are both academically inclined, totally missed Bernice’s increasing distress over Piro and Tiffany (even though B brought up Tiffany), and he actually thinks Bern will now be ready for coffee and talk about dating Gunther…

    Not even going to try to figure this out yet, but I can predict we will soon see Tiffany, and will she have an explanation why she is apparently letting Piro “crash” in her room. The one who might be surprised about this is Bernice, not Gunther. I think some feel sorry for Tiffany, and Gunther was/is very kind to her, and she needs it. She is vulnerable around him; that being said there is not really a romantic relationship between those two. There might be one of wishfulness between Bernice and Piro, because he fascinates her as he violates all her ideas about what should be; he does not seem to care or notice. Gunther really wants to be with Bernice, but Bernice does not have a clue. Conundrum city, and I just violated what I said in sentence one: I would not try to figure this out. And I keep saying Rosa will come back to confuse things even further. All the characters will return anyway gradually as we get closer to the wedding. Shoot there I go again, figuring and predicting (lol).

    So Piro doesn’t feel compelled to take care of or return stuff he borrows from his friends? On top of crashing wherever without a second thought for whoever he crashed with? He’s looking less and less attractive…

    Nice try of affecting the dropped handkerchief and explain why she has been wearing the scarf. But it failed. She did use the word “crashed” in explaining what he was really doing at Tiffany’s. Truth comes out. Gunther does not seem interested in Tiffany and Piro is not a competitor for Bernice in his mind. Of course, Bernice is not ready to talk about New York or anything pleasant.

    Hmm. A few ways this can go.

    Bern can use her RA powers to get Tiff in big trouble, possibly even turfed from her campus digs, for “rule-breaking,” even though she has no proof Piro has crashed at Tiff’s that day or any other day.

    Bern will round on Gunther for not “claiming” Tiffany like she told him to and possibly blow up at him, prompting him to blurt that he’s interested in her.

    The above scenario will happen with Gunther throwing in some gratuitous insults about Tiff that she will overhear and proceed to feel like crap about herself.

    This strip cleared a few things up for me that I wasn’t sure about: Piro has no interest in Bernice. He probably views her as a sort of wet-blanket busybody who talks too much. Gunther has no interest really in Tiffany. And Bern is a dimwit.

    OK, I was pretty sure about that last one.

    Piro is not attractive in any way. He looks dirty….he looks like a total loser. I doubt Tiffany would hook up with him and surprised that Bernice is interested in him. We need some new male characters to be introduced here. How about, Aaron Hill returns and is interested in BERNICE? That could be interesting!

    Just reading now, but here is a thought. Tiffany’s father is involved w Moony Uni, so what if Tiff is not the only family member there. What if Piro is a stepbrother, halfbrother, or cousin, or perhaps related to her best friend, Crystal?

    Not being concerned about borrowed items is a characteristic that i have seen more in people who have never had to worry about money so they do not relate. Of course, Hair might also or alternatively be in that position or might hate the scarf with Piro knowing that aspect so the loan might be long term.

    The scarf lengthened today.

    I am surprised that Piro is continuing to crash at Tiffany’s suite. I had chalked it up to Bernice’s paranoia. I continue to doubt that this is a romantic connection however, which would be poorly motivated. Tiffany gets off on being a “bad girl” and Piro obviously get free room, and perhaps, board.

    yep, the angle continues… Gun moves foward, Bernie is confounded and Tiff will remain out of the picture until she see’s her “study buddy” preoccupied by Bernie, meanwhile Piro is self absorbed into doing whatever, where-ever (from the clothes and styles, we can assume he’s not a bum, but for whatever reason he prefers the gypsy lifestyle… perhaps he doesn’t like to be too approachable?) at any rate, I doubt he realizes Bernie is crushing hard on him.

He is a life time .268 hitter as an infileder, first with Toronto, then Arizona, now in Milwaukee. As a middle infielder he has a history of injuries, but fields well and hits well enough to hang on. He has no time to deal with Luann.

    NG, i think a more common problem than all the heterosexual women going for “bad boys” or rich men, and all the heterosexual men going for “sex pots” or “stereotype embracers” is simply that people tend to not know how to meet each other or do it in the wrong way to last. An example was Johnny Carson who met women through parties and lavish dating lifestyle but in private perferred a sedate lifestyle, time on telescopes, etc. If he had met women by donating time at planetariums he would have had a chance to meet women who did not rapidly tire of him once he was no longer putting on his dating act because they woukd have had more interests in common. Back when i was single i consistently found that donating time to charities which interested me was also a wonderful way to meet great men to date. Being able to talk together about mutual interests decade after decade absolutely rocks.

    Nobody seems to have noticed that Piro may have done Gunther and Bernice a big favor, by assuming that they are a couple which he shouldn’t bother, or come between. Bernice may not realize this, but Piro’s just striding off will have given her something to think about. If she brings it up over coffee with Gunther, he has an opening—if he can get the guts to say loud and clear—that he wishes they were.

    The reply mechanism doesn’t seem to work*Argy, my use of the word ‘score’ for Gunther reflected the fact that nothing positive for Bern came out of her encounter with Piro and Gunther, who now clearly knows that she is attracted, saw that. Given Piro’s continued involvement w/ Tiffany, he saw the coast clear (perhaps) for being w/ Bern. Though now her mood will be a bit ‘black’ as a result.

    My memory of my high school days is that the good guys were more difficult to approach because they didn’t assert themselves enough when it came to girls. That guy from across the room who wrote in my yearbook that I was the best looking girl in class is one I would have loved to date, but before then, I never saw him because he sat in the back corner of the room and never participated in classroom discussion. At our 20th reunion he said to me, “We were friends.” That was the first time he ever spoke to me.
