    Good job, Puddles! He finally gave her a little whack on the leg. Maybe Luann will throw the ball, now.

    Inhibitory Euphoria? Sounds like she’s into weird submissive S & M stuff. lol

    I was going to say Bernice is developing a poetic tongue but thinking back to Zane, I suppose it’s always been there. Could it be that, lurking behind her sarcastic and practical front lies the restrained heart of a romantic waiting for a passionate man to release it? Or will this have no effect on her? I know which one it probably is but I do hope I’m wrong.

    Inhibitory euphoria? Sounds almost like, can I say ir? “Coitus Interruptus” although maybe the base is still not at first yet, if I can terribly mix these metaphors. Bern is hot as the Earth’s core in her core, but she needs to have a serious relationship to satiate those flames, while at the same time growing as a person, dealing with her deep insecurities, and be happy in a normal, albeit weird bf/gf relationship. I know hilarity ensues along the way, but I have hope here. In Luannverse one must also have patience too.

    I get the impression that, as much as Bernice says she likes this kind of “perfect” relationship, she actually miss cuddling and physical contact a lot. Luann obviously understood this and she would like to see her friend happy and with no regrets. But since what she bernice wants is also what scares her I fear the situation is stuck, at least until Bernice can clarify what she really wants. Basically, if Bernice will start going to a therapist, maybe everything would slowly resolve itself. I hope Luann will suggest her again to do this.

    This entire week’s worth of strip with Bernice so ecstatic about being Nil’s muse makes me think that, eventually, she will want something more with him. But, what do I know? I still think Oz will make a return and Gunther & Tiff will eventually end up together.

    “Exotic but not erotic.” What does this mean, in light of the fact that the word “exotic” is often used where the word “erotic” would make more sense (as in “exotic dancer”)?

    The whole “muse” thing is complete B.S., which Nil engineered because he knew Bernice would buy it, never realizing she’s been dumped. Nil is very intelligent, and a bit Machiavellian to boot. I like him more now.

    Well.

    After this week, I guess I can safely but reluctantly declare, that of the Strip’s two designated “nerds,” Gunther is in the the much better “relationship.”

    Berniece is REALLY into this arrangement. Luann finds it strange and in a way so do I. I wonder how B. will react to Jack next time she sees him. She’s awfully attracted to him! But she may prefer to keep all her guy friends platonic at this time. I think she finds comfort and security in this. She can admire and even lust from afar but not get really involved.

    When Luann finally throws the ball again, will it lead to an unexpected encounter? And if so, with whom?

    1) A handsome stranger who sets Luann’s heart a-flutter?

    2) A handsome stranger who sets Bernice’s heart a-flutter?

    3) A handsome stranger who sets both Luann’s and Bernice’s hearts a-flutter?

    4) Nil and Fred having a make-out session?

    5) The Ladybirders?

    6) The Ladybirders watching Nil and Fred’s make-out session?

    7) Jack and Caylee?

    8) Zane and Crystal?

    9) A disembodied voice from off panel?

    10) …?

    Bernice, you’re not in middle school anymore, you don’t have to restrain yourself because you have parents who will punish you. You’re an adult, it’s obvious to everyone that you are smitten with Nil. That being said, you’re both adults so if a platonic relationship works for y’all, more power to ya.
