    Sorry Luann.. That’s at the expense of others. You’re in your dad’s chair.

    Mmmm.. she’s eating Cup o’ Noodles. ;)


    Now bring on the Doll-O-Ween party!

    Notice that in the third panel that Luann’s brain is leaking out of her ear!


    But this strip should have ended one panel earlier. Mrs. Horner’s comment should have been the end of the strip. Luann being lazy does not make anyone happier and depreciates what Mrs. Horner was saying.

    Also I may have over reacted to last weeks story.

    Way to miss Mrs. Horner’s point, Luann . . . which, as we all know, was the whole point of today’s strip. Sigh. What’s the point of it all?

    She’s happy being home with her family and her dog, not doing anything in particular and enjoying this moment in her life…rather than complaining that it’s not exciting enough. She doesn’t need to be in any hurry to go skydiving or latch onto a new relationship if that’s not what would make her happy right now. Pretty good lesson learned…

    But you’re IN your dad’s chair, Lu.

    Therefore, you are interfering with HIS “happiness.”

    Probably eating HIS snacks, too.

    To answer Frank’s question, Luann is not going to be able to sensibly repeat Mrs. Horner’s philosophy and then have Frank understand it.

    I don’t buy Ms.Horner’s theory. Focusing on making oneself happy is hedonistic. But, helping others become happy makes you happy.

    I really like Mrs. Horner a lot, she’s a great role model for Luann. Maybe she’s following her advice in a weird way now. But Luann is really listening to her. Little by little, she will follow to her teachings about life with the same seriousness as she listens to her teachings about writing. For now, at least Puddles seems very happy too.

    The negativity of most of the comments on this strip make me sad for the majority here, who seem to never enjoy anything without having rigid rules, and assumptions that are rarely proven.

    The artwork looks odd. Or is it just me? Like somebody other than the usual artist drew it and tried to copy the original artist’s style.

    And her father doesn’t look very happy.

    put your own mask on first before helping others……a parallel i.e. you are much more helpful and fun to be around when you are happy yourself.

    Hey Luann, I think Mrs Horner was referring to another source of happiness i.e. coming from activity, motivation and achievement etc.

    I’m just surprised she is hanging out in the living room rather than her bedroom. Most of her age want to avoid any chance needing to talk to their boring parents.

    Happiness is a state of well-being, an emotion ranging from mere contentment with the blessings we have (even if meager), to a deep and intense joy in living. So it comes from within. It thus differs from external pleasures, stimulation or accumulation of material stuff.
