I don’t want to know what just happened, right?
I’m too tired and too unobservant to figure out what this is all about.Nonsense verse, maybe.
Good point Brad.
Who hasn;t been observing what? Toni constant morning dry heaves?
For being such a slouch;Brad is certain to be sleeping on the couch.
Toni was not finished.
Sounds like “I don’t want a fight” is about to start in 3…2…1
Never go to bed mad. Or talking about laundry.
And one for Jay Blue: “Supine and Prone Prose”
Cute, but they’ve been married for a while—you’d think this would have surfaced a lot earlier…like week two, maybe!
That’s why my late and much, much missed wife Audrey and I always did our own laundry individually. Much less stress that way.
Hehe, I like today’s strip. Sure it relies upon the Clueless Husband trope, but that’s perfectly in-character for Brad. And I like any strip that has them without Shannon.
Toni, your last couplet proves you are severely sleep deprived. Just go to sleep.
Sheesh! These two finally get a “Shannonless” moment alone, and they waste the time asking foolish questions???
Wrong move – Brad never,never, never use logic when your wife is asking questions. Next time, you do the laundry, you will complied with your wife’s expectations. Remember happy wife, happy life.
Have a separate hamper for any unmentionables you want washed by hand. Wash everything else on cold, and the colors usually won’t run plus you’ll save energy. Most laundry detergent already has some kind of booster in it to get out stains and brighten colors. Boom, done.
Brad isn’t to good at picking up on signals.. is he?
I noticed the bachelors are not good deciphering the marital code.
I thing that Brad´s verse could use a “do” before “ask”, somehow it sounds better to me. Just sayin´
“In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil’s might, beware my power…Green Lantern’s light!”
“I would rather not fight” does not mean I fear a fight
Some made that mistake and ended up a bloody sight
I favor peace as a peaceable man
But I can rain down wrath if you force my hand.
(On the other hand, I can’t hit women, so I’m helpless there
When a woman comes at me in anger I get a scare.)
What else has Brad not done that is now going to come back and bite him?
Late night arguments are the worst; even when couched in poetry
Beautiful poem. Toni and Brad are adorable together even in moments that precedes a huge discussion ♡.
What happened to innocence of comics?
Is she with bambino???
I’m with Brad. Put them all in the machine, and push “Warm.”
I could’ve sworn they were gearing up for something.
Maybe the sheets and his tee shirt were white.
Too much schmaltz
When my son went to college he thanked us for making him do his laundry. He was one of the few guys in his room that didn’t have pink underwear
The only way for a man to INSURE that the woman does all of these “household chores” CORRECTLY, is to do them so badly that he is NEVER “requested” (i.e. ORDERED!) to do them again! ;) Example-the clean towels should be wadded up (or tied into a know! ;), and stuffed into a hallway closet! ;)
You’re dead meat! That’s right!
As a Husband of 36 years I know what this is about! I found out along time ago.
I really love this strip because it perfectly illustrates one of the very few things that my wife and I get on each others nerves about. You see, she just doesn’t understand that there are four different approaches one can take to a given household chore. They are as follows: 1. The Right Way. 2. The Wrong Way. 3. The Husband Way. 4. My Way. She likes to do things the Right Way, and I like to do things MY Way. Her narrow minded view on this issue has caused some friction between us sometimes.
Someone’s getting lucky tonite
It won’t matter what color ANY of the laundry, is…in a moment! It’ll all be on the floor, on the dresser, on the mirror,, on the headboard, etc….
Now we know the real reason they haven’t had children. They have the wrong discussions in bed.
maybe you guys are juts so sad that you can"t see the new one
I’ve done our laundry for 44 years and my wife rarely complains. Until I retired, I never washed our clothes together simply because of the work I did. I taught my son to do his own washing.
Rule #1 for a happy wife. Don’t make her look like an unobservant idiot.
As lame as that was,,,Toni’s looking smoking
I do all the laundry in our house so I never have to criticize how my husband does it. I also do all the cooking, bill paying, housework and yard work for the same reason.
Do not ever wash and dry your wife’s clothing!
This is why some couples do their own laundry.
Some nights, it gets verse…
I did the laundry once. ONCE. She never asked me to do it again!
I’m observant, but did Brad get a new look?
Actually, in a way, it reminds me of the “I’ll never tell” song from the Buffy episode “Once More with Feeling”. Great one IMHO
He makes a good point.
With household tasks: you accept the results of your partner’s efforts, or you take on the task yourself.
This is one way to ensure he doesn’t have to do laundry again…
Is this Luann or Dr Seuss?
Are we supposed to read the end of the poem as:
Then you haven’t noticed, right?… Not quite… G’night.
Which would mean that she did notice, but he doesn’t want to talk about it, or is it rather:
Then you haven’t noticed, right?… G’night… Not quite.
Which would mean that Brad wants to go to sleep, satisfied that she did’t notice, but she’s not ready to go to sleep yet.
Tell her to shut her pie hole. Doing laundry is humiliating enough for a man to begin with. Hire a laundry service if you aren’t happy.
Judging from Toni’s expression in the last two panels, as well as her words in panel three, there is going to be a good deal more discussion of this topic.
After all these years, Nancy is still ten times more seductive than Toni. I’ll bet that Bernice is the one who would provide a wild ride.
Toni’s got a comment hereand Brad’s just not that bright.
For when she’s talking laundryshe’s really talking shyte.
The kind that comes from wee small bumsand how brown diapers wash out white.
The laundry’s just a metaphor and Toni plainly sees,Brad just needs some laundry tutoring
on how a baby really pees.
At their age they have other things to do in bed.
Brad built a whole ‘nother bedroom so he wouldn’t have to sleep on the couch when Shannon came over.
Looks like he’s gonna have to build a another whole ‘nother bedroom so he won’t have to sleep on the couch permanently.
Tomorrow: TJ cooks veggies !!!
Marriage… pure poetry
When avoidance of fight, Supercedes need to be right.
I do the laundry and my wife says nothing. If she does …SHE has to do the laundry and that is something she hates.
I was interested in the separate her from the polyester tights line. I think I may try to use that on my next suggestive text to wifey
No, she’s asking these questions to set you up for the Next part of the Discussion.
Oooh … pretty racy pillow talk, huh?
Anyway, no mater how we understand this dialogue, she is saying she wears polyester tights. Therefore Brad should leave her. What’s the next horror? She puts ice cubes in her wine? She gets mayonnaise from a jar? Run man, run !
’T were better for both Toni and Brad to go to sleep happy and satisfied—not dismayed or even angry….
Lol – - My wife is the one with no clue how to properly do laundry, but she insists on doing it anyway. I sometimes sort things out in the laundry baskets, but if they’re not sorted for her, they don’t get sorted.
It’s a training exercise
