Girl, talk! You need advice from a more experienced female.
Funny! Bernice has got the hots for sure…
tea will help?
Tantos deseos autoreprimidos de Bernice harán que sus hormonas estallen.
If you, as a 20-year-old in normal health, compare yourself to a woman in menopause just because you got horny one night (and didn’t simply get yourself off for some inexplicable reason) you have serious psychological problems and should probably see a sex therapist.
Hot beverage…with a hot flash? It must be opposite day at this house.
Why would anyone drink hot tea in the middle of a hot flash?
Hot flash? Bernice has got (insert Southern accent, fanning oneself) thah vapahs.
If we assume Brad is around 24, and Frank and Nancy waited a while to have children, she’s around 50. Looking very good as well. I guess that’s an average age for menopause. She sure should share some of that life wisdom with Bernice. She needs it.
Bernice may be on the verge of actually getting some good advice…..
Bernice doesn’t need hot tea. She needs to be doused with a bucket of cold water.
Err, Nancy…Unless that’s black cohosh tea, I don’t think it will help.
I thought Bernice always seemed kinda old for her age.
You just know, Nancy can look into Bernice’s eyes, and tell she’s been having some X-rated dreams. LOL
Bernice has the hots for the two boys nil and jack. She wants one of them but is afraid she’ll hurt the other. Bernice, if you pick one. The other won’t get mad or jealous. He’ll congratulate the other and bow down gracefully.Just my thoughts
Earth to Bernice you can not have hot flashes 1) You have never had sex. 2) You are not older enough to have menopause.
Bern is actually at the needs a cold shower stage….
So We’re now on a first name basis with your generous benefactor, Bernice?
You’re about to talk to a lady that once told her daughter, in so many words, to “go after what she wants.”
If that is her advise you, take it, quit beating around the bush, and confront Mr. Jack once and for all.
And for the sake of the Luann/Jack shippers, let’s hope for a “failure to launch.”
The wheels on the bus go round and round
round and round
And like this strip it’s going nowhere.
Seems a bit disrespectful for Bernice to be calling her Nancy instead of Mrs DeGroot but perhaps Nancy told her: “Just call me Nancy, we are all adults now”. Same thing goes for the crew at The Fuse, I can see them addressing her either way as well, depending on what she likes.
Hot FLASH, not hot FLASH OF PASSION. Big diff.
I think that Bernice has something in common with a just disciplined cat. (Wet kitty)
What a lucky combination! Nancy is probably the only one person Bernice could trust enough to confide about her inner conflict in being attracted to two guys. She probably trusts Nancy more than her own mother. Let’s hope Bernice will be able to gets over her awkwardness and talks with her, she’s desperately in need of advices!
a little SleepTime™ tea?
Isn’t Bernice Luann’s age? Why would she call Mrs. DeGroot Nancy?
Different kind of flash I think.
Huh. Didn’t know Nancy was going through menopause.
So… Bernice is allowed to call her Nancy now? MAN, it has been a while since I read this! I need to catch up…
Good thing guys don’t have hot flashes, just night sweats and chills.
Way too much has been devoted on this. I really don’t care for Bernice’s love life.
Just a different type of hot flash, but still caused by those horrormones.
Bernice has been having erotic dreams about Jack and Nil, and it seems that Nancy has been having those, too.
Well they just keep progressing from boring nonsense to insulting stupidity in this incredibly stupid story line. First of all it is wrong for Bernice to be calling her Nancy. Mrs. Degroot, Mrs D…but not Nancy. Second they have created a three way sexual quandary that DOESN’T EXIST because JACK DOES NOT WANT TO DATE BERNICE. There is no suspense to it because there was no lead in and nothing to support it. Third, it is obnoxious to keep depicting Bernice as a girl who has a choice to make. There is no choice to make because Jack has never shown any interest in her. It would be different if both of the boys had been dating her and seeking her attention, but that is definitely not the case. And fourth it’s disgusting and insulting to women the way they are depicting one of their female characters like a dog in heat. Try showing some class Evans.
I knew it would be Nancy! I just Knew It!
All giddiness aside. I has suspected that Bern might have another one of her talks with Nancy. It looks like Nancy has assumed the mother role that Greg had not provided her. Luann, Tiffany, Gunther and even Les had parental characters provided for them. Now we see that moving Bernice into the DeGroot’s residence may have been a brilliant move of several levels.
I hope this conversation gets a better resolution that the “Nil Kiss With Tongue” did! 8^ )
“When you’re hot, you’re hot.” Jerry Reed established this conclusion long ago.
Well now, here is a opportunity for some sage counsel.
I wonder if Nancy would mind if Bern brought one of the fellows home
I’m assuming that’s a kettle not a teapot. Sheesh, these Colonials!
Girl talk time!
For Nancy, it’s Hot Flashes. For Bernie, it’s The Vapors…
I sense a heart-to-heart coming up.
Only, Bernice’s hot flashes are from her over active sex drive, not her body.
I’ve never quite believed that Bernice would confide her sexual issues to her friend’s mother who she’s known since she was a little girl. Romance, maybe, but not the physicality. I think it would feel too awkward. In the early days of the strip I used to think that Toni’s purpose after she married Brad (which I thought would happen many years before it did) was that she would have served as an older sister figure for Luann (and possibly in this case by extension Bernice). I could see more discussions of this type with a woman closer in age (and with less mother vibes) than Nancy.
Bernice had a different kind of hot flash.
Nancy deduces Bernice’s “hot flash” and wants details!
Bernice is an oversexed little snob who has disowned and alienated her own mother, father and brother while seeking out a convenient replacement in the form of Nancy DeGroot. I don’t like her at all. I wish they would quit it with the Bernice stories.
The mother in ZITS has some unique ways of dealing with “hot flashes”.
None of them can be printed here.
Delta for Mayor.
Bern, there’s a fine difference between “hot flashes” and “flashing hot”….
She calls Mrs. Degroot by her first name? Huh. Frank, too? Anyway, it looks like she’s chosen someone she can talk to about her sexual urges. Good.
Umm … Bernice, you should be calling her “Ms. Nancy” to show respect as she is your elder. I still call people “Mr./Ms. (first name here)” and I’m 65 years old. It’s the way I was raised. It doesn’t matter if the person is older or younger than me, but especially if they are older, unless they tell me otherwise. I’m guessing this strip is not set in the South.
Definitely different reasons though……
Hmm? Bernice called her Nancy and not Mrs. Degroot..
tomorrow: tales of Nancy’s ribald past?
Well, in a sense it’s true that Bernie is old before her time.
Can you say spinster, Bernie?
If you ever wondered who wrote a comic strip, just look for a character drinking hot tea during a hot flash. That screams “guy wrote this.” You want to stand outside in the winter in your nightgown. Think Ellie Patterson. (One where door swings closed/locked behind her in the middle of the night) The only thing hot tea would be good for under this circumstance would be to throw at a guy asking “what’s wrong with YOU?”
