    Smart move there Arlo. Nothing can get you into more hellfire than the truth.

    Might be a good time to get your phone and take a close up picture for her. Don’t tell her anything just show her.

    Clearly he’s learned from the trap of “Does this dress make my butt look big?”

    Women have no shame about coloring their hair. Men who color their hair lie about it because they’re embarrassed.

    Pandemic was the best time for this. Cut it off short, let it grow back out long and natural.

    Just what every husband wants to find himself in! The Wifely Catch-22. There is no right answer here, other than “You’re BEAUTIFUL Janis!” Then turn out the lights… and pretend to sleep, while she simmers thinking on how she’d hide your body…

    A break-room party with people coming and going as their shifts allow is a too long and sad type of party anyway.

    I remember an episode of the Simpsons where Marge discovers that her hair dresser has been coloring her hair for years, but she keeps forgetting about it because the fumes from the dye give her amnesia every time.

    Growing your hair out doesn’t have to be a horrible experience. When I stopped dying my hair the white grew out and pushed the color to the ends like a reversed “frost” (for those who remember the 70"s). Never had so many compliments!

    Janis can see her roots just as well as Arlo can. There is no reason to involve him in this. The only smart answer is “You always look beautiful to me”.

    For all the years I’ve been reading this strip, I think this is the smartest and wisest thing Arlo has ever said!

    A wonderful plot device, showing that Janis still has some of her insecurities and that Arlo has grown to know that there is no “right” answer to the question. Unlike other less deep-thinking and short attention-span commenters, I do see that this is “advancing” the plot and keeping with the true nature of the characters!

    Highlights and lowlights, Janice. Never see the gray growing out that way.

    I just want to point out the excellence of the drawing in this particular strip. Somehow he really showed the way a woman looks when trying to see the part in her hair with a mirror that way, and then dipping her head down so someone else can see the part in her hair. That’s just not an easy thing to do, regardless of how professional an artist you are. Awesome job!! :-D
