    Stop trying to make Jack and Borenice a thing.

    They have nothing in common and this whole thing about how Jack could “teach” Borenice how to lighten up and have fun is just asinine.

    How about Jack finds someone with similar interests to his own that he can have fun with, yeah I know wild idea huh

    I remember my mom telling me about their goldfish at work years ago that got pouty and started spitting water because he wanted a girlfriend which sounds like a PRET-TY convenient fish ailment for this comic.

    So Luann remains in junior high mode, where you need to find excuses to talk to guys you like instead of just, y’know, talking to them. Bernice was slightly more mature about the situation, but naturally ended up going along.

    Not that it matters, since nothing will come of all this anyway. I might be wrong here, but I doubt it. The whole Piro arc proved that getting emotionally invested in Bernice’s romantic life is a waste of time.

    Um…what can Jack do? With fish, you usually can look up on internet to figure out what is wrong with your fish. And most fish have short life spans so it is normal for them to die while living in your tanks and not necessarily ailing from something. Depends on the breeds. I had goldfish which species can live up to 30 years so if it looked like Monstro, it is almost certain that it was ailing. Monstro is a fantail goldfish which is a subspecies of the original goldfish and likely to have different life span. I looked up – the original goldfish is called comet. Monstro is a fantail and its lifespan is around 10 years so it depends how old it was when Jack bought it and how long Bernice has had him – maybe a year or two so Monstro is likely ailing,

    There are few possible problems: 1.Jack may not be an icthyologist (?). He knows fish are quiet, though. 2.None of Dez’s rocks are in there. 3.The fish may be bored. 4.Maybe the tank is dirty. 5.Too much food, or too little, or bad temperature, or fish rash…. hahaha Monstro will be fine, Jack has the informed attribute of Mr. Wonderful.

    It’s nice to see that Bernice cares about Monstro and is really worried that he’s sick♡. She’s still a human being! A little less nice is seeing that she’s still afraid of having Jack around because she likes him but doesn’t want to face her feels. Luann is the best friend Bernice could ever ask to have ♡. Calling Jack is also the best thing to do for Monstro’s sake.

    Time for another episode of “Awkward Moments…” Starring: Bernice and Jack". These two ships keep passing each other in the night only to realize that….But wait, they forgot to pack one vital piece of equipment on their ships, a signal flare. Oh well, I suppose fog can obscure a lot at night between two passing ships.

    Maybe Monstro is lonely and depressed; perhaps he would like a fish friend as well as a nicer environment e.g a castle and some plants. The tank needs an overhaul. BTW I like Bern’s hair and her flowered jammies.

    I really don’t understand why it’s so important for Luann to play matchmaker. If Jack and Bernice are going to date they’ll decide that for themselves. It’s funny – I’ve said before that readers tended to look at Jack as someone that a particular character “should” date, rather than just letting chemistry, lack of chemistry or simple initiative take its course. Now even Luann has fallen into that yenta role. It’s not like Bernice asked her for help in this area.

    My best guess: Monstro will need and receive a girlfriend, further escalating the smouldering Bernice infatuation with Jack. The timing is right for GnK to take that up again.

    Tara may appear in the mix, if she’s not gone to Utah. There is some risk that Tara may pull a Piro and exit the strip. Having exited with a bang as it were.

    Jack will probably examine the fish and make several comments about what the fish needs, which will all sound like double entendres to Bernice. She will be hot for Jack and he will be oblivious to her attraction. Just like when they were walking with Ben.

    Nice progression today…….

    1) Luann ensures that there will be interaction between Bernice and Jack. Luann’s actions as a friend to Bernice are a very classic sort of romantic comedy plot segue.

    2) Bernice is initially upset/flummoxed by Luann’s actions… but then accepts them…. again classic romantic comedy plot actions.

    I do not recall seeing Greg show Bernice with her hair pulled back before (at least, I mean, since she cut it relatively shorter near high school graduation). It looks cute on her pulled back.

    My prognostication for the arc…. or at least as far as I think I can thus far envision…. a) Monstro will ultimately be “ok” in the end, b) Jack and Bernice will come to a meeting of the minds over Monstro’s condition and both will grow more intrigued with each other. c) not sure if they will go out on a date anytime soon, yet…. could be… but Greg may want to have the arc lengthen a bit with some story of Bernice going through several panels of pre-date infactuation first.

    But…. overall…. a very pleasing arc for me thus far…. and I am enjoying the way both Luann and Bernice are being featured…. and since Jack has always been presented as kind…. I suspect that pleasantries (and potential hilarity) will continue.

    I like Bernice, I think she is very repressed, and a college level proto-intellectual who thinks she is smarter than most people. That is entirely understandable and not unusual for college level students who come from kind of a isolated, non experienced background. All the things that make her very interesting. Oh and she has a cauldron underneath her persona. I’m projecting and my projection runs contrary to most I see here. What I see is hate though, and that is very disturbing on a serious tip.
