    All it took to get Bernice a-jiggling was for Nul to say the word ”inveigling.”

    Guess that’s the secret to winning a gal’s heart in this Strip.

    Being “Edgy” and using an occasional “big” word.

    Now comes the fun part.

    Wait’ll these two REALLY get to know each other.

    One “minefield” coming right up. ;)

    It appears to be a pre – programmed involuntary reaction. Nil says something that triggers Bernice’s circuitry that polls all her inputs, and based on the input, the kissing subroutine engages the hardware. She has absolutely nothing to do with it, it just happens.

    WOW. Nil used the very same word Bernice was spewing the other day at Nancy. They are made for each other! Bernice is turned on by his intellectuality. I get that. Clearly, Nil saw that a long time ago at the bowling alley but Bernice apparently did not, and then Jack dropped the bowling ball on Luann’s foot causing a huge scene so the little show between Nil and Bernice was all forgotten – on Bernice end. Nil apparently hadn’t. Glad Nil decided to try again and reached Bernice even if he did it through Jack.

    Bernice knows seven big words. That means she gets six more kisses if Nil knows the same words. Personally, I’ve never been a big fan of those who use big words that they know the general public is not familiar with. It’s a snobby tactic that only leaves the audience feeling mocked. But in this case, it could be a fun side to this relationship, and lead to some really incredible Scrabble games!

    End of week random thoughts.

    • Bernice is a pushover for expressions of platonic love coupled with androgyny and sesquipedalianism.

    • Apparently they’ve found something they can relate to in one another. Especially after that disastrous double date of May 15th thru 17th, 2017. Did he say leeching!?

    • Nil appears noticeably more Cyclopean than that first double date! We better keep an eye on him for any cannibalistic traits.

    a good match, but w/ Bernice part of it is a competition to see who knows more words. Bern wanted to make sure Nil knew he didn’t need to define inveigling, that she already knew that word.

    On another note, i was curious as to what Bern would wear. Clearly she did not want to come across as a temptress (the way she dressed for Jack… which didn’t work anyway). This time she sports the prim schoolteacher look.

    “Could you do a little more of that as I do this, but as you do, once again talk about the complexities involved in the creation of microelectronic graphic technology? You know how stimulated my (sexy look) ‘intellect’ gets when you do!”

    “But of course Darling!” Shall I get the white board first and do my (coyly), ’presentation’ as well, or just the summary?"

    “*OH MY!*”, just the summary, as I am in a dire need to get to the (ugh!) conclusion of our (catch in breath) ‘discussion…’

    “Ah you are a SMART GIRL aren’t you, with your pythagorean theorem fixation and your absolutely kinky obsession with Intellectualism as the view that regards the intellect as superior to the will, and that the intellect is the basic factor, both in the universe and in human conduct.

    “Oh?, which thing dearest?”

    “The ‘ticket’ has allowed me to (catch in breath), ‘arrive’ and reach a favorable conclusion to our intellectual discourse."

    “Ah yes, I see…well played! As you can see it is also emphatic that you know that I to have ‘arrived’ to the same conclusion as you. It really is a wonderful thing that we can share in our ‘intellectual’ pursuits in such a mutually supportive manner!"

    “Ah you are true “intellectualist”! To borrow a more common phrase, ’that’s hot!’"

    If I suggested someone was inveigling – they’d be on their IPhone looking it up.

    Come,come, Bernice, there wasn’t much inveigling about it, said Nil.

    I wonder if Bernice and Nil will engage in pre-marital interdigitation. I thought it meant “holding hands”, but it has several meanings, and I think the most cogent one in this circumstance is “The mutual interlocking of toothed or tonguelike processes.”

    THIS kiss was not him being inveigling, rather vocabulary (as evidenced by recent strips) is quite important to Bernice and thus a major turn-on…

    Bernice certainly has changed her opinion of Nil. Go back and read the Double Date arc of 5/15/17 through 5/19/17. In the first strip, Bernice is dissing Jack and Luann (of course) because they’re enjoying themselves. Then she tells Nil she plans to be an psychoanalyst, and when he tells her what interests him she rudely tells him he’ll probably be her first client. After Luann is injured, Jack offers to carry her to the car. Luann says “yes,” but bossy, know-it-all Bernice ignores both of them, and probably aggravates poor Luann’s injuries by dragging her out to the car.

    So Bernice has gone from thinking Nil is so creepy/weird that he need serious psychiatric help, to thinking: “OMG he used a big word! I just can’t keep my lips off this guy!”

    Hey. Why not?

    I wonder if this will continue on Monday. Bern runs to go tell her BFF everything and end up being told ‘no, nite’, and a walk off. Although, it is twice now that Bern has initiated this kiss. What if Nil tells her she is moving too fast for him. I do think Nil and Bern are a good match. Both are intellectual types and are very book smart. I do like Nil, the odd eccentric so I hope he stays around for a while. I wonder when Nil, Luann and Jack will transfer to the university and get out of community college.

    It’s simply a matter of two people with excellent vocabularies and similar interests who have met. Who cares if he’s a bit odd – so is she, and Bernice is a bit of a snob anyway, so who else would appreciate her?

    All soap operas, at their base, are romances, and Luann has a LOT of soapish elements. Gunther and Bets, Bernice and Nils, and, most memorably, Brad and Toni. They rivet the audience.

    My hunch is that this strip will end with Luann getting married.

    I saw Bernice today! She was coming out of a mall, looked to be in her early 20s, same hair, same color, same glasses, very stiff demeanor, walked like she had somewhere very important to be. She was dressed appropriately, too, in a conservative buttoned up shirt and pressed slacks with grandmother shoes. I had an urge to stop the car and run after her and say “Do you know you’re a major character in a comic strip?” but I didn’t. Perhaps over the years we’ve created a tulpa.

    Bernice the aggressor. Sounds like a fun date, but what do we have with Nil? A non-aggression pact? Somehow I think that all systems are not go, and we will not have a lift off.

    Oh, FFS… the word is not even being used correctly here. It means to wheedle your way into someone’s good graces by means of deception. If Berniece thought that was what he was doing, she would have slapped him, not kissed him.

    It makes since: Nil showed that he thinks respectfully of women back when he and Jack had a thing for Luann in art class. For him to be drawn to an intellectual and share a love for a broad vocabulary just seems natural. I see them sitting on a park bench, watching other people and chatting about what they see from a psychological point of view and an artistic point of view. It will be fun to watch this in the future.

    So Luann is going to be the last member of her social group to (ahem) get busy? This strip is now about college students, and they tend to have a more (ahem) active social life.
