can’t be too prepared
Seems Bern believes it’s a repeatable phenomenon. ✨
Time to move the bed.
Wow, bernice is even a prude in her dreams.
A Disappointing end to a promising two weeks. I was hoping for Bernice to have a break-through in her obsession with Jack. But no, she’s just going to sound-proof her room.
Luann if she wanted to tell you about the dream she would.
Ahh, the little Psych major is anticipating a wild, thumping, Id driven, unleashed ego, oxygen gasping trip into dreamland. Isn’t that just the cutest thing?
Bernice. Instead of worrying about your nightly whispering, go home and have it out with your family about moving back home. Your family can find a way to accommodate everyone. Get to know Ben and your step nephews. Just take all those pillows and go home.
Oh yes, she’s not that kind of girl. Only bad girls dream about a guy they’re attracted to come over and have a dumb conversation with them. Definitely worth postponing the whole brother plotline.
Most girls are “that kind of girl”, at least sometimes. You can’t really control what you dream.
Still looks like Luann is needling Bernice.
(Incoming “Luann-hater” comments in 3…2…1)
But seriously, what’s missing is knowing whether Luann is trying to be helpful – or just a pest.
Pillows against the wall suggest this arc is coming to rest.
Along with hopes that we might get into the Ben mystery.
What a prude Bernice is. That stick up her arse just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
But just in case . . .
You can tell this strip is written by an old person. What young person these days is going to say “Because I’m not that kind of girl”? It doesn’t even sound plausible unless you’ve been watching “I Love Lucy” reruns all day.
“Because I’m not that kind of girl.”
I guess we’ll all see if this who jack thing will continue into next week
Next week, Bernice goes to Walmart and buys a cheap stereo. From now on, it plays all night long, every night serving to jam / mask other sounds that may happen to emanate from the room. That Bernice is one smart cookie.
While in the barracks I had a loud girlfriend which invited all the next-door neighbors to demand that I stuff a sock in her mouth
Not that kind of girl? What other kind of girl is there?
Bernice- blame Page 218 also return the book to Nancy.
She’s going to have another dream.
Luanns being a jerk.
Just dream you have something in your mouth…
A waste of 3 weeks
How dare Luann accuse her of having a physical desire for Jack? She’s a snarky suppressed prude.
Apparently you are that kind of girl! Sweet dreams!
Dez needs to give Bernice a Dreamgiver charm. “If you ask her, they will come. Ommm…”
What kind of girl is that? The holy kind? There was a girl in Avila in Spain who had some really hot dreams about a guy named Jesus and they made a saint of her.
Sunday: Shannon picks a turkey … and names it “Mr. Gobbles”.
Luann is honoring Bern’s privacy by revealing that she can hear “pillow talk” through the wall. I wonder if she would have made the same reveal if Gunther was sharing the room and invited Bets over for study sessions. }8^ )
As long as Bernice is a member of the grammar police, hilarity will be ensure.
Bernice doth protest too much, as evidence by her attempts to deaden the sounds from her room. She has found a new interest besides Monstro, and, her studies. The “Bodice Ripper” is letting Bernice’s subconscious out, where she finds herself at least in lust for Jack.
I always thought it wouldn’t take much to unleash the smoldering, sensuous women lurking beneath Bern’s uptight public face. Kind of like wimpy Bruce Banner turning into the Hulk when provoked.
Anybody heard from Argy.Bargy2 ? Seems a long time gone!??
( THANKS MORDY) for those of you pissing on LUANN and sanctifying Bernice….( and Delta )
What, did she suddenly decide she is a Lesbian? Thought that was decided at birth?
Bernice… there’s nothing wrong with having hot dreams. It’s natural and you can’t control it. What a terrible psychology student! She really seems hopeless!
“Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere.” Helen Gurley Brown
“It’s the good girls who keep diaries; the bad girls never have the time.” Tallulah Bankhead
“I wonder why it is, that young men are always cautioned against bad girls. Anyone can handle a bad girl. It’s the good girls men should be warned against.” David Niven
We have not left Jack and Ben yet, this is all part of the development of a fuller (I hope) personality for Bernice, wiser, less constrained, and happily receiving love and satisfaction from someone she deliberately pursued, while at the same time not being so anxious about tying up the loose ends in her family. This was not the fault of each sibling, Bernice should be the one who ties the knot.
Maybe she should ask herself “Why not?”
Bernice is the most repressed person…
time to clean that fishtank, ugh!
:-) Luann’s knowing remarks are funny. Wonder what kind of girl Bernice is referring to? Not sure I know of anyone who can control their dreams. I can’t even remember most of mine and the ones I do remember are just weird. Her trying to muffle any future dream talking is hilarious! ;-))
Luann is at least doing Bern a favor by letting her know that she could be heard talking in her sleep. But Luann wants the juicy details just like she wanted them from Gunther and I think Bern knows that. If I were Bern I’d say ‘go have your own lustful dream and ponder the details of it’. Maybe the fun part for us is that in saying “…i’m not that kind of girl…”, you figure the story might take her in just the opposite direction.
Bernice is definitely not “that kind of girl”. The kind who has normal sexual feelings and can deal with them in a healthy way.
Bernie is lucky to have her hot dreams, since she’s not having any Real Life romance.
But Luann is being very insensitive and immature (so, what else is new?)….
Nothing wrong with dreaming a fantasy…..
maybe she is considerate, doesn’t want Luann to be bothered when she listens to the beach boys good vibrations song.
As a noise and vibration engineer, I can tell you this… What Bernice is doing will not be effective. You would have to cover the entire wall with Sonex foam which provides a decent amount of sound absorption, isolation and damping… however it will only work for the mid/high frequency range. The wavelength of frequencies below 500 Hz will pass right through it… If you don’t know what Sonex looks like, Google it.…
You can’t control your unconscious mind, Bernice.
I think Bernice just confirmed that she’s frigid by choice.
That was one big mosquito in Bernice’s room last night.
I think that Bernice expects to dream of Harvey Wallbanger.
Bernice has an awakening. Now where will it take her?
Bernice has shown time and time again, that she has no sense of humor about herself. But, at this point in time, it must be granted that her home situation (parents house + Ben) is a mess in her mind.
This comic is an example of why it is a really good idea to move away from home. One needs new friends that are good for you, not just together by circumstance.
I was thinking a couple of blankets spread and hanging with an air gap between them and them and the wall. Make sound go from air to blanket to air to blanket to air to wall to air to Luann. Oh, and a quietly playing radio next to the wall might help as well.
Or, she could pretend to be asleep and start calling out passionately Elwood’s name.
If Luann can hear everything, through the wall; that means she also heard EVERYTHING, when it was Brad’s room.This strip has hidden layers…
IIRC, Tom Sawyer was talking in his sleep. He found out about it, and also that his brother was listening. So, when preparing for bed, Tom would fake a toothache, and tie a cloth around his head to hold his chin in place. But, his brother would slip the cloth out of place to listen.
But just in case she IS that kind of girl……..
Get one of those electrifying thunderstorm recordings and play it loud!
bernice knows she tell luann anything , she’s a blabber mouth. 1st person she’d tell is jack
She sure is, though no one can listen in.
“I’m not that kind of girl.” What a dated, stupid thing to say. Bore-nice is even controlling about her dreams. How could Jack find her appealing? Also, if Jack pursues Luann and asks her on a date, she is now in a dilemma because she knows Bore-nice has the hots for him.
Just wondering… does Monstro also have wet dreams?
Bernice would do better to steal Luann’s Stethoscope.
I guess there isn’t any insulation in the walls.
Luann just wants to enjoy details about other peoples love and sex life rather than work to have one of her own. She wants everything(education, love, success) to just fall in her lap. Bernice is willing to work for what she wants; bernice wants a mix of brains, brawn, and emotion and she has yet to find any man with this mix. She found it in Gunther but he’s taken. So she has to keep searching.Bern, why don’t you tell jack how you feel and see where it goes. what have you got to lose?
girl just make it loud and nasty … that will teach here for trying to hear whats going on.
Yeah right, you’re human
