Stop jumping through hoops
What if I just show you instead?
I second that emoji.
I know I’m showing my age but I do not like and neither do l use hieroglyphics.
Zero (“The Producers” 1967) could say “I love you” like he meant it:
What’s the matter? Are you showing signs of not taking care of what she’s really looking for or wants?
She is hard to please.
Yes, Arlo, four exclamation points and four heart emojis. Show her that you REALLY luv her.
After she gets him to act like a child she’ll despise him for not being a man.
Come on Arlo, just get up, go outside and sit in the shade with something cold to drink where you can enjoy some peace and quiet with your man parts still firmly attached.
He forgot the foot massage.
Arlo, it’s time for some roses and a bottle of Southern Comfort.
Women!!! Geesh !!!!
She probably wants him to admit that she was right and he was wrong.
What exactly is she looking for?
She makes him work for it….
This kinda ties in with July 9th: https://www.gocomics.com/arloandjanis/2022/07/09
I have never used an emoji and probably never will. Seems a rather lazy way of communicating.
If you bend over backwards far enough, you can see where you’ve been…
Why has she gotten so “naggy”? I’m a woman and am annoyed by many of her antics.
I am genuinely confused. Arlo says, “I love you,” and Janis replies, “Just can’t bring yourself to say it, can you?” What did she want him to say that he had not just said?
Grab her gently and look in her eyes and say it…..
But this only works if you’re a cartoon character! Of course, we may all be…
Some people are just hard to please…..
Well, A and J can start a restaurant that specialized in Southern Comfort drinks!!
Nice teasing, playful banter and clever use of text.
I think she is trying to get him to embrace the texting culture. She’s been concerned about losing her youthful looks, maybe she wants them to be more youthful in general?
What a workout! Wait until one of you dies and you will really realize what is important. Clueless in the meantime…..
After reading the comments here, I’m even MORE glad I never got married! Or had kids. Sailing is a good deal smoother because of it…
Seems to me like they had a contest of sorts re: modern texting. She loves him and knows he loves her, so I don’t think that’s the point. I find emojis abhorrent, but that’s the current trend. Groovy, eh.? ;-)
LOL, she knows, she’s just teasing. By the time she’s done, he’ll really be revved up!
Arlo is getting into eggplant territory now.
Husband doesn’t have to say anything to me.
That he will go crazy trying to get my computer to run the old software I like or play along with me with my teddy bears talk – including moving bears around in the teddy bear village (figurines and small toys) to do different things when I am not looking, take me to see Louisa May Alcott’s house every trip we make to Concord, MA – and listen to me talk her and her family (or complain about the latest movie from one of her books that I WILL NOT go see), or put up with any of my other craziness or takes my 94yo mom to a doctor with me- he is telling me that he loves me.
On the other hand – I know more about James Bond and Ian Fleming than anyone – especially a woman – should including Fleming’s history – did you know there was and American TV show special of “Casino Royal” long before there were any movies?
Everything we do for each other says that we love each – in addition to saying it to each other often. (Been together since the 1970s and married since 79.)
