    I’m surprised at Toni not liking mouthwash nor hand lotion.

    Wow! Toni had to cobble together a list of “possible marital quirks”, and Brad immediately picks up on her “shoe fettish”! Talk about “wearing leather and laces”!

    Pretty smart response, Brad. “My only quirk is that I love everything about you!”

    As much as possible, avoid involvement with anyone who is significantly more/less sane than you are.

    Can you go back to the mouthwash thing? Just how disgusting is her breath, anyway?

    One needs to get an automatic toilet paper dispenser, and that would end the age – old discussion of whether it should go over the front or the back. If one got a vertical roll holder, then there would be the question of whether it should rip from the left or from the right.

    I’m struck by how much smaller than Toni Brad is. Shouldn’t he about 10% large than she is. And shouldn’t he have a more mature looking face reflecting he experience as an adult and a fireman?

    Sunday main character interlude, Brad and Toni version. A new arc starts Monday most likely. Wonder where we go next. I vote for Rosa coming back and confronting Gunther with be a man choices.

    A “List of Domestic Quirks,” eh? Careful, Bradley. What Toni REALLY wants know is what is it about “Her” that Annoys “You.”

    Brad used to have lots of quirks before he met Toni, like eating twinkies and lying on the sofa all day, tinkering with that old car, and only takes showers once an eternity.

    Brad, you beta dork. She’s desperately trying to get you to get her off your pedestal. Worshiping her is the best and fastest way to get her to lose respect for you.

    It is a bad sign that she thinks she needs to tell you she snores. What, do you have separate bedrooms?

    Like Toni, I love green olives. Especially large pimento-stuffed ones in brine, rather than vinegar. Like Mezzetta martini olives – the best. But Greek and other olives are good too.

    Toni can keep her over-ripe bananas.

    1. I don’t like mouthwash. Translation: My breath stinks.

    2.New shoe smell turns me on. Translation: If you want sex, buy me new shoes.

    3.I hang toilet paper over the back. Translation: I don’t mind disgusting toilet paper.

    4.I eat popcorn one kernel at a time. Translation: If I have popcorn, it’s going to take a long time before I finish it.

    5.I like green olives and over-ripe bananas. Translation: I am pregnant.

    6.Fluorescent lights bother me. Translation: You are changing all the light bulbs.

    7.I don’t like hand lotion. Translation: My hands are rough and scaly and you will never touch them.

    8.I snore. Translation: This is something I would only tell you if we had never slept together, which apparently we haven’t.

    I share six out of her ten (counting the olives and bananas as two separate things).

    I eat popcorn with chopsticks, which pretty much makes “one kernel at a time” mandatory.

    Quirks that are charming at the beginning become very annoying in time.

    Hand lotion is just regular lotion in a hand-sized bottle. How does one hate hand lotion?

    The toilet paper over the back would be a deal-killer for me, although I kind of get the shoe thing. Another thing, does the lotion phobia include all emollients?

    To everybody who wanted the strip to ditch the Pru/Les story and go back Brad/Toni: be careful what you wish for, for you may get it. So here we have more of Toni being passive-aggressive/controlling with the poor schlep Brad. BTW – these two have been dating for who-knows-how-many years. How did Brad not know these things?

    Brad says he can live with the shoe smell thing, but personally, he says, “I love the smell of napalm in the morning.” (Thank you Robert Duvall for that classic line.)

    So glad to see Brad and Toni back. But, some of those quirks are a little weird. Shouldn’t he know some of them already? Oh wait. He’s a guy. Synonym for “clueless.”

    Hmm. I can see a couple of points where I emphatically agree with Toni (dislike of fluorescent lighting; the toilet paper thing!), a few where I disagree (over-ripe bananas? Ptooie! Don’t like mouthwash? — Then I hope you have naturally-sweet breath!), and a bunch on which I’m neutral.

    But overall, I do find Toni better off with Brad than she’d be with me! He’s more her kind: a cartoon character! I couldn’t live like that….

    Toilet paper should go over the back of the roll if it is on a spindle that swivels down so the paper is against the wall, but over the top if it is on a fixed spindle that doesn’t swing down against the wall.

    Toilet paper should go over the front. You end up wasting less toilet paper that way when you can easily control how many squares you’re pulling. If you do it over the back, you might accidentally tear off an extra piece.

    @NEEDACHUCKLE: “He is interested in turning her on, not foot fetish.”

    ^

    Where I come from, the word “fettish” is used quite generally, to apply to anything under the sun that one enjoys or is enthusiastic about, whether cookies, shopping, flying a frisbee, surfing, racing cars, even the physical aspects in the joys of marital bliss that Brad was talking about (“new shoe smell turns [Toni] on”). So, what I was trying to say, was that Brad picked up on that subtle one that Toni slipped his way, and I was tickled by the interaction between the newlyweds, in their fostering an atmosphere of love and marital union.

    -

    That, and I was using it to make a play on “Leather and Laces”, replacing what one traditionally may think of as “starting the fire” (bedroom apparel), with the comedic/humorous twist of it being the shoes that “do the trick”!

    She’s wrong about the toilet paper hanging. Even the picture of diagram from the original patent of the toilet paper roll and hanger shows the paper hanging from the front.
