Damn, Rat! For once, I admire your blunt honesty.
Rat may have exhausted his “honesty” quota until the next election cycle.
Hmm. I can usually fake it through two or three meetings, myself.
Harry Callahan agrees.
Rat, an hour? I’m surprised he can manage it that long.
Rat playing nice …. what is Rat up to ? … Croc Power !
Rat would actually good for more than 5 minutes of pplite conversation? Don’t think so!
I think I’m good for ten to fifteen minutes tops.
Time for Pig’s “hole” invention from last Saturday.
Why would that concern Rat? We’ve never seen him crying!
Honestly, I’m surprised Rat is good for conversation for that long!
He feels his obnoxious coming on; he’s afraid she will (justifiably) punch him in the nose causing him to cry like a baby rat.
I wouldn’t have expected this level of self-awareness in Rat. To be honest: Of most people known to me to whom that insight would apply only very few might have that level.
I’m that way after an hour at block parties or “social” cocktail hour, except I just get bored.
Or they’ll pour beer on your head
One more drink and Rat would have gone bonkers…..
Pig sits on pillows when he watches TV because he & Rat sold all their furniture to buy the largest TV possible!
Hahaha… My life…
….with ASD….an hour is optimistic.. filters are for sissy’s…

Story of my life, STG.
I just always keep talking until I say something stupid!
An hour? I normally can’t do that for a half an hour. What most people want to talk about bores me to tears. If it’s a conversation that stimulates me mentally, then I can converse for a long time.
I have to admire Rat for this one. He MIGHT have just shown empathy – rare for a sociopath.
I note that he said somebody leaves in tears without being specific. Maybe it’s him.
‘How come’ is not a word. The word is ‘Why’. Get it right, Pastis. Thanks. Grammar police Comic Division.
And that breathtaking beauty didn’t leave in tears after being dumped like that? YOU RAT!
I guess this rat has a reputation to obtain
Come to think of it, I’m only good for about an hour, too.
Despite being somewhat of an introvert, I usually manage to find someone to talk to when I get dragged out of the house. And though they may eventually sneak away, it’s usually because I bored them to a frazzle rather than hurting their feelings. Usually.
Pastis can’t draw pretty women.
I just burn out at that point.
Is Rat mellowing? Developing a conscience?
Harden up again, Rat. We don’t need another “softie” character!
