WOW & SERIOUS body language
The only thing they’re exploring is each other’s tonsils.
now that Luan and Puddles are gone, Bernice and Nil can have their “us” time again
Absolute proof that Nil doesn’t mind Bernice kissing him at all! ;)
Exit Luann stage left.Enter Jack…?
Is Luann videotaping all this?
OMG! And I thought this was a family friendly comic! LOL
Those two are getting serious!
Sooo….while it’s romantic….they can’t find someplace more private? Who does Nil live with anyway? If he lives with anyone that is…
Well, Luann does look dejected. Rejected. Luann, you need to move on and meet new people. Bernice has outgrown you. Gunther has a new girlfriend. Pru is in New York. Tiff is your nemesis. Dez was a former roommate of Bernice. Tara is in Utah and was sort of too wild for you. Jack sees you at the dog park occasionally. Nil is Jack’s friend and now Bernice’s love interest. You see? You are lost at the sea, unanchored, moving further and further away from them. Time to drop the anchor swim toward something. It seems your job at Kids First is not doing much for you. How about finding a new job? Or exploring what career you might want and set a real goal?
Well, that was 27 milliseconds after Luann shoved off. As far as Bernie goes, the floodgates have broken down, the genie is out of the bottle, and whatever else one can think of. She has had a taste of passion and won’t go back. Just wait ’till that “special night” happens… It will be the shot heard around the nerd world.
Find happiness where you can. Make it yourself if necessary.
Ok….so now the bets are on with who is gonna have a kid first….Toni? Bets? Bernice? Gunthers mom? Or will Crystal suddenly show back up forcing Knute in a shotgun wedding…with little one pending…
I wonder if Jack and Nil share a habitat? It seems that everyone has a roommate?
No accounting for tastes…
(sniff) I love a happy ending.
Heels to the park.
Laaaammee. Bernice. You’re a grown woman, so why the secrecy? Use less uphanisms about kissing and treat people with more respect. Saying hello doesn’t cost a thing, but time. And its not like you have a curfew.
Luann was probably spying.
You go Bern! (But no – I wouldn’t have predicted this).
It’s looking like 9 Chickweed Lane, except the characters have chins.
Next week, either Jack or a Park Ranger. Maybe, a new love for Luann?
Oh, get a room you two… ;-)
It’s sweet Bernice sees eyes to eye with Nil.
Momma come quick! Jump over to this strip. They are physically expressing affection in public! Lol
Nobody has speculated yet (as of the time I started writing this comment) about what Puddles may be getting up to out of our view during panel 2. I’ll go out on a limb and guess that whatever it is will play a role in next week’s story.
But what is it? Guesses, Luannalyzers?
Nil is still creepy with that mask of hair. He could be the Phantom of the Opera under there, or someone in hiding on the witness protection program.
I’m sure glad I went through college when I did. I had 4 different majors until I finished a Master’s Degree and went on to work 3 places in PA and 5 different places in Florida (I’m now retired, almost 72). I guess, given my changes in majors, I would be regarded as a total mess by today’s standards if the posters here are any indication…
Well kinda what I thought. Luann and Puddles provide situational context to what is happening to other characters, and it’s clear Bernice has a hot new love interest. I always point out that nerds have a cauldron going on underneath all that nerdiness. I don’t think this arc will continue Monday which means I join some others in that I’d like to see a hilariously positive development for Lu herself. When you think about love matches have been established for Gun(ther) and Bets, Bern and Nil (Tiffany isn’t interested in anyone on stage in the comic) so what about Luann?
Resume what you were doing…as long as Luann doesn’t turn around!
“See, she forgot all about the library like she told Luann, now . . “
The Nil who grabs knee.
Bernice is thinking: “Oh, Jack, oh, Jack…”. Meanwhile, Nil is thinking: “Oh, Jack, oh, Jack…”
I’m more and more convinced that Bernice don’t deserve a friend like Luann. Instead of being offended by all the lies and rudeness, Luann looks happy for Bernice and Nil and smiles at them as she leaves. It’s a sad smile, but it’s still a smile! On the other hand, it’s nice to see Nil and Bernice so in love and passionate ♡. Luann and Bernice may need to talk later, but now Luann needs to seriously find an obedience training for her and Puddles. Jack might be the answer
My prediction: Puddles gets hit by car, Jack rescues him, Luann and Bernice gush over Jack, Nil says to himself, “What am I, sliced chicken?”. In any case, at least another week of this arc.
Hey! What do you think you’re doing, you inveigling sybarite?!
This is so cute! Love!
I knew it! Bernice wasn’t planning to go to the library! She just wanted to be with Nill and get away from Luann.
Saturday! We waited and waited, and they kissed!
It’s great.Thanks G&K,they both deserve to be happy.
Bernice finally gets some! Yay!
Wink, wink, nudge, nudge; say no more!
Relax folks nothing to see here, her legs are still crossed.
That progressed rapidly.
I wouldn’t’a thought these two had it in ’em.
Bernice is finally going to get l—-
Looks like Bernice decided to change into heels for this occasion.
Looks like it’s about time to get a room!
Looks like however Bernice termed her and Nil siting on the park bench, the plain explanation is that they’re exploring kissing. Now, if, eventually, that leads to something more, all we’ll see is the beginning, and, possibly the follow up. Everything else will be off stage.
Jack, always the groomsmen never the groom
Did anybody else have “get a room” as a first thought after seeing this?
Now what was all the fuss about yesterday!?!?!?
Remember back when that act would take your breath away?
And Luann will be back in five, four three, two…
Puddles knows when he sees mushiness and want to head in the opposite direction fast.
I love Bernice’s heels
This made me wonder if those two would be so rude if it were Jack saying hello. Somehow I don’t think so. What would be hilarious would be if they showed a parade of acquaintances stopping by and interrupting them!
Time for Bernice and Nil to get a room!
Bernice and Nil have a way to go yet in “Night Baseball” or as some say, “rounding the bases.” They’ve yet to discover their Prop Room. Compare the idyllic 3rd panel to this somewhat more steamy one:
News flash for some purists. There have ALWAYS been gay families…
Next week we’ll see what Puddles was up to OR Bernice and Luann will begin their long anticipated discussion about the state of everyone’s relationships.
Hotel..Motel..Holiday Inn..Since Y 2 are getting Hot, Please Go Check-In…Lol ;^))
Must be something in the water. First Gunter and Bets getting mushy, and now Bernice and Nil. Young Love, ain’t it grand!
I don’t know which was faster … Luanns exit or Nils hands. Although Bern, you are leaving your purse wide open to getting stolen like that. Its quite obvious that neither your or Nil are not paying attention to anything else. And Puddles, go catch that butterfly you are so focused on.
Hey, you could bring in Bets and make your public make out session an internet make out session.
Bern and Nilsie sittin’ near a tree,K-I-S-S-I-N-G
I’m confused. Why are they hiding the fact that they are dating? Is one of them married? Why would they need to hide anything, but then kiss in public? Is Luann the only person they are hiding it from? Very confusing.
Most people do NOT want to see anyone showing this much PDA. A quick hug and kiss in public is okay, but if you need to make out like this, find someplace more private.
Bernice’s purse is begging to be stolen
Now Jack needs to wander by…
Wow! Bernice and Nil come up for air.
Bye Luann and Puddles let me and Nil get hot and heavy.
Going from Gunther and Bets to Bernice and Nil. Will this be another horrible relationship that I have no interest in seeing, or will Bernice learn to suck less than Bets ever did?
Feel free to drop off some euphemisms.
So Nil and Bernice are an item, and Gunther and Bets are an item. When will Tiffany look beyond herself and find someone? When will we see Luann at work or college again?
A relatively new experience for the two of them, one would surmise.
Nil and Bernice are meant for each other because they are the dullest characters in this comic strip!
I realize why Bernice is the way she is. She learned it from her parents. Bernice has been staying with the DeGroots for months for free and the Halpers don’t seem to mind freeloading off of other people. Are the Halpers that destitute that they can’t pay a little for Bernice’s food at least? The Halpers are selfish people who don’t consider others.
I dunno…this is Saturday. I’m not so sure this particular arc will go much of anywhere. It looks more like a filler to me. Making out in the park is rather bad form (or at least, it used to be in my day), but maybe that’s a “thing” now? I mean, where’s this going to go? This is a family strip. Or at least, I thought it was. With everybody getting the hots for everybody else, I’m not so sure anymore.
In any case, Luann needs to get a life herself. Maybe a week of serious soul-searching on her part? Nah. GnK don’t ever get that deep.
BTW, where’s Mordy in all this? Haven’t seen him for days.
it seems half the people here don’t seem to remember their late teens. if someone was so stupid that they were to interrupt someone else’s make out session most people I knew would not be so kind dismissing them
Aww, ain’t that sweet!
Well, good! Everyone deserves affection!
The one thing that bothers me is how sex crazy they are making Bernice. They did it when she was dating Zane too, always jumping on his lap for kisses. She is portrayed as quite the petting, smooching maniac. My! Such raw emotional urges coming from such a prim, upstanding, well-educated young lady! What’s a person to think? I’m surprised she hasn’t had lots of boys asking her out, but maybe her sexy secret is still safe…safe until Luann runs into someone they both know! HA!
Personally, if I were her, I would be highly suspicious of a boy who wears a jacket and beanie in the summer.
The way those two are going at each other, they’re going to be humping in the bushes by Monday! You’d think they would at least have brought a blanket – sheesh! Maybe they could get arrested for public indecency! That would be hilarious! Bernice with her glasses hanging by one ear and Nil with his pants down around his ankles. And then Bernice could call Luann to bail her out.
The meeting of the Overthinkers’ Society will now come to order!
Hmmm, can’t see this arc ending here and I still think there will be another interruption for these two. Not sure what they have in common, but we may find out. ;-)So when Bernice gets back to the DeGroots, will she be getting the third-degree questioning?
Looks like things are heating up!
Sunday: Frank and Nancy reminisce .
SO SHE LEFT. AFTER 90 SECONDS SHE LEFT. BUT OF COURSE SHE IS LUANN SO SHE WAS STILL ‘WRONG’ FOR SHOWING UP IN THE FIRST PLACE. ( I feel better ) lol
“Nil – is that a painting of a blossoming flower?”
Nil: “Uh, yeah.”
Hand on her leg and Bern. seems fine with that so maybe she has hope of enjoying more?
Wow! For the record, I applaud this, they’re young folks, and my goodness, they’re in college already!
Good for you bernice
Sooo. what about Luann’s love life?
bernice gets knocked up , nil leaves town, tony and brad adopt
Oh-Oh, things are really heating up in the kitchen. I hope they brought their oven mitts for protection.
As long as they’re still sitting on the bench, all’s well…
I am still trying to figure out why Bernice picked ‘that spot’ to meet Nil. Luann walks the dog there. So confusing.
OMG, his hand is on her knee!
First base, on his way to second!
I can still see daylight between them, but I believe that one of the explorers is starting her climb.
Puddles is always so “Obedient”.
So glad Luann took the hint and left. While she deals with whatever Puddles did (bad doggie!), Bernie and Nil can ahem! get down to business….
Amazing how fast Bern forgot about her lust for Jack. If she was more likable, I’d like her relationship with Nil. But I’d rather see Luann happy. It doesn’t even have to be with a boyfriend to be happy – G&K just give Luann more than a life with Puddles.
Even puddles is telling Luann “leave those two alone. lets go play” But Luann is so bored and lonely, she wants to watch others make out.
What’s wrong with a kiss? And what did Puddles do?
Dang; Bernice went from “I’m a filthy temptress!” to making out in a public park relatively quick. But good for her, she’s finally letting herself have some fun.
In that last Panel, didn’t Bernice’s Jeans get awfully. TIGHT? Very Sexy Bernice.
Bernice’s chances at love are Nil!
Oh they’re exploring alright.
