I’m with you!
It just occurred to me that the first time Ben was in the strip, Luann ended up monopolizing his time so that he was with Luann more than he was with Bernice. If I recall correctly, Bernice was pretty bummed about that.
Could Bernice be still harboring some resentment over that, rekindled by Ben’s return?
That’s from his poem, The Death of a Hired Man. The full quote is “Home is the place where, if you go there, they have to take you in”.
Are you going through a “period”? d;o)
Reminds me of this, from 2014:
Swimmingly, of course! d;o)
Nope, not the dog park, not that time they went bowling. (Others were invited)…
That could be construed as a “double date”.
Did the administration find out about Piro’s sleepover and fired Bernice and she was too embarrassed to tell anyone?
The job was eliminated because of budget cuts.
I’m wondering if this might lead to Luann plotting to get Bernice and Ben together so that they can hash out their differences?
Perhaps Greg and Karen have decided that the Bernice-at-the-DeGroots idea wasn’t working, and are trying to (a) reconcile Bernice and Ben, and (b) move her back home?
Maybe she’s afraid of telling them taht she lost the RA gig, because they’d find a way to blame her.
If they do, it’d be a pretty lame and flimsy argument. She lost the RA job due to financial considerations, or, budget issues. Bernice can’t control that.
