Goodbye, ice cream truck! Hello, velocipeds!
At the very least, it’ll be good for Rob’s waistline – or whatever they call that for men!
LOL! That’s a home run, Greg!
Not to mention Sarge’s dog Otto, in Beetle Bailey.
This week’s arc has shown us that Bernice is a major people-pleaser. Several years of Sundays have shown us that she doesn’t have a great deal of empathy. Neither of those characteristics would make for a wonderful counselor. I’m hoping this little interlude is intended to let us get to know Bernice a little better in preparation for some storylines that are the results in her changing so that she could, potentially, be a decent counselor… or that would help her realize that she’s chosen the wrong career path. Maybe Nancy would have a role in this transformation or realization?
A girl can always hope!
Maybe they’re setting up a major story line for Bernice by letting us get to know her a little better. Bernice is studying to become a counselor, yet I think most of us agree that as she is right now, she’d be a terrible counselor. Maybe Greg and Karen are setting up something that would either change Bernice’s outlook and make her more empathetic, or make her see that she’s pursuing the wrong career path.
They can’t all be cliff hangers!
I empathize with Bernice… I was a lot like her at that age. A lot of insecurities that manifest as a mixture of “holier than thou” “observations” (recreational critiquing) and people-pleasing. It’s the people-pleasing that’s driving this week’s arc. There’s a smart, witty, and good-hearted person in there somewhere; hopefully it won’t be too long before we start to see her.
I know. My nephew completed his BA in vocal performance last year And had planned to start work on an MM in voice this year. He’s just decided to learn computer programming instead – it breaks my heart, but I understand. As for me, it’s been four months since I sang with my choir of 25 years – and since I’m planning to relocate early next year, that was likely my last opportunity to sing with them in person. Try to hang in there with the technology, though. I think they’re working hard to develop apps that will offer a more real-time rehearsal-like setting.
Pops gets right to the point, doesn’t he?
