    Loosen up, Yawnther! I hope Bets will make a “supersonic man out of you!”It is time for you to drop sister Borenice’s act and enjoy yourself a bit.

    i wonder how far he’s gone now? lol also did anyone see 9 chickweed lane tonight? i think Amos finally knocked up Edda. i guess Brooke was ready to write that into the strip now. it’s actually nice to see them as characters in the strip again since last year they were barely in it.

    well, O-KAY. Looks like Tiffany was happy with the 50% split and all is right with the World. So, Tiff is one of Bets’ followers on Instagram, eh? Wonder when THAT happened?

    And See? THIS is what I was talking about the other day. Tiffany interacting and bonding with Bets. And Bets coming through for Tiffany, when the chips are down. Its great those two ladies are really getting along. Bets has already proven to be a far better “friend” to Tiffany than My beloved Crystal ever was. And Bets has only been in the Strip less than 8 months!

    I’m tempted to say that Tiffany should know a little something about Gunny getting “hands on” the night they “shared that moment.” But that’s too easy. Luann certainly Knows how “handy” Gunther is, after he measured her for that “Sexy Witch” outfit and the brides maid dress.

    You gotta love that swooning look on Bets face in the last panel. And the way Tiff and Bets are talking about Gunny like he’s not even there.

    Careful, Gunth. The next thing you know, these two gals will be having you watch their purses while they head to the “Ladies.” ;)

    It’s interesting that Early Modern English uses the terms “Thou art”, “Dost thou”, and “Thou hast”, whereas Quakers of today (Society of Friends) say “Thee is”, “Does thee”, and “Thee has” to convey the same meaning.

    Oh.

    And let’s not forget that Gunther was going to do all this for “free” before Bets got involved.

    Tiff could have ended up with $600 to $900, instead.

    Of course, if Bets TRULY feels bad about Tiffany “not getting more,” she could relent and give Tiff the other half of the money that SHE kept.

    Bets’ costume colors are all wrong and a little too masculine. As a History major, I know this is not the dress worn in the Medieval/Renaissance era. The dress is in two colors – a green dress covered with a blue bodice that is rather masculine. The dress needs to be more intricate with more colors – mostly deep-toned and dull, some gold and no bodice shoulder caps. The dress sleeves need to be either straight lined or poufy upper sleeves. The bodice is sewn onto the dress itself rather than an addition. I would color the main dress an emerald green and the bodice dark red-purple lace with black laces down the center. I would style the hair in an intricate updo – no hat. Gunther’s is more historically accurate and the codpiece cinched it.

    Can this be a sign of nascent maturity?

    Gunther sure lacks romance. I mean, she led with her chin and he missed by a mile. Even “that was for business! And it was a pleasure.” might’ve moved things forward. And I bet the crowd here can suggest something better.

    It seems to me about half the characters in Luann are not growing up. Brad, Tony, and TeeJay are doing well but Luann, Bernice, Gunther, and Tiffany are just slogging through an awkward age when they should be out of it already. This stuff would work at age 15, but jeez….

    This is a nice bit of “innocence at the precipice of its’ loss” humor. The dialogue plays right into yesterday’s prediction of these three forming a business venture. Perhaps the new lingerie line will carry the Sheraton St. Louis brand.

    It is very difficult for Gunther to allow others to hear that he has “romantic” feelings for Bets… that is in keeping with his personality type…. so it feels quite realistic for him to be that way and it comes as no surprise.

    But the bigger revelation today and it is a good one….. is that Bets is saying that she and Gunther have been “messing around” in some sort of fashion that would be “romantic”. Gunther may not want to admit it (because that is how he is)….. but, it is good to hear that he and Bets have likely been kissing and perhaps more.

    The thee, thou, is quitest beyondeth me. (lol). But it was fun to see thanks SM. I think MD can relax on the money and I, for one, are very happy to see that Bets and Gun have advanced pretty far on the intimate relations part. She is so in love with him. How can I tell. See the sappy smile in panel three when Bets talks about “hands on.” Of course as Pipe is so apt to point out, it’s in Gun(ther’) nature to be defensive about romantic forays. With Bets being besotted with Gunthie it won’t be long, if not already. Man Gunther don’t mess this up PLEASE!!!

    “school and work”… sounds like Tiff is taking up the life of a typical college student who has focus. This is great, and Tiff has friends now, including Les, who should be no more than that. The objective of Ann Eiffel dating her dad (horrible as it might seem) was to get Tiff to want to strike out on her own. She wasn’t going to do that as long as dad was paying for everything she wanted. Tiff needed someone to despise before she was willing to give all that up. The purpose of Ann as a character has been served (we don’t need revenge on her or for Tiff to return to her previous relationship with dad) Tiff is getting a life that is allowing her to connect more with other students and I think she is happier that way.

    Gunther knew right away what Bets was talking about, because that was the ONLY time he has had his hands on her. Bets did not say when he got “hands on”, so obviously it was only one time. He is still a V.

    I loved the discussion on languages. As far as Outer Space Alien English, totally not relevant to real Earth languages, I was always puzzled by the Vulcan leader T’Pau’s use of “incorrect” English. For example, when she says, in “Amok Time” – Kirk? T’Pring is within her rights, but our laws and customs are not binding on thee. Thee are free to decline with no harm on thyself. Of course, TV writers can write however they please, and I certainly did (and still do) love the show, and especially this episode. Just found it strange that a Vulcan, usually so precise, spoke that way. FWIW.
