For help on how to follow a comic title,
Greg Evans isn’t saying so, but I’m thinking that Tiffany realizes just how much further away she’s getting from her teen party mode. In other words, she’s maturing.
Actually, Brad, like his sister, seemed to have low self-esteem. After he and Toni were first married, Brad basically had the attitude of, “I can’t believe someone like me could get someone like you.” In other words, he was incredulous that someone who “wasn’t attractive enough” like him could get a woman deemed out of his league. In essence, both Luann and Brad have thought they’re not good enough to get romance.
I don’t think I like this idea of becoming beautiful or handsome just because of a sweetheart. Having a partner can be wonderful, but we shouldn’t have to rely on them to become better-looking. Why can’t we become better-looking by ourselves? Why put the burden on a partner/lover/spouse to do that?
Actual love is what Luann wants, but she’s not in a place right now where she could recognize and appreciate it.
Strawberry-flavored cupcakes, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and/or the lunch/dinner of your choice. . .
I remember hearing my parents’ bed bouncing at night. Specifically, I heard my dad bouncing up and down on it. Being the naive girl I was at the time, I thought my dad was bouncing on it for fun, the way a kid would play by jumping up and down on a trampoline or bed. My dad was playing—with my mom! I didn’t put two and two together until I was an adult—more than 30-some years later! That “bouncing” resulted in me and my brother—and I’m glad they did it. ;)
Because only characters with crazy emotions and lack of reasoning belong in this universe. Happy, stable, and productive people need not apply.
The strips from Tuesday and today couldn’t be more different. Brad is enjoying the love of a spouse, while Luann is lamenting the lack of it. Then again, it’s because of where they are in their respective lives: Brad has grown and evolved, while Luann has yet to grow further.
Thanks, Templo. The same to you.
Yeah. A period of growth.
