    A LOT OF US GOT IT RIGHT!!! LOL

    The cassette tape did include bad stuff being said about Bernice.

    So what do we think is the end of Luann’s statement?!?

    Maybe someday I’ll just say, “Bernice -”

    Drop dead? Bite me? LOL

    Better start packing, Bernice. =)

    Ah-ha.

    Finally, We come to the long-awaited part where Luann says what she really thinks of Bern.

    Just remember all the times Bern snarked you, Luann.

    And play the tape.

    Arlo Guthrie has pointed out that the gap in the Nixon White House tapes is almost exactly the length of “Alice’s Restaurant.”

    Luann would do well to distract Bernice with a song. Maybe that one if she has to fast forward that much.

    Luann may have talked crap about Bernice in her private diary, but Bernice has talked crap about Luann to other people. But naturally Bernice doesn’t care about pointing out her own hypocrisy, only the hypocrisy of others.

    Well, that gives them the opportunity to talk about their BFF relationship. Unpack and share. Bernice, predictably, will say she put up a lot listening to her monologues and learned to snark because advice just went over her head. Luann will say she did not want advice, just a sympathetic listener which she was not – that is, sympathetic. Then Bernice will once again say Luann didn’t want advice so all Bernice could offer were words that might help her see herself more clearly which are often described as snarks by her fans (Luann’s) in here.

    The problem here is that for all the manufactured drama, we know that Bernice and Luann won’t ever stop being friends (no matter how toxic their friendship is). The status quo will remain firmly in place, so what’s the point of today’s strip?

    Luann seems to remember very well what she thought of Bernice at that age… That’s awesome! Can’t wait to see if Bernice is going to be very upset about something Luann said when she was 13 or she’ll be a mature person and just laugh. Actually, it’s pretty obvious that she won’t be able to be a mature person. So how ridiculously offended will she be? Will she stop talking to Luann? Will Nancy be “forced” to talk to Bernice to make her understand how unreasonable she is? More than friends or enemies, Luann and Bernice really seem to be sisters.

    yes, clearly (as some have pointed out) this is where this arc is going i.e. the unspoken (all this time), leading to an argument and the friendship possible going on the rocks for a short period; it won’t end but things will have to be sorted out.

    yes, you don’t read your personal diary to others even if it is your bff. But Luann has been unable to confront Bern over her constant negative judging; this is the only way it can happen. Luann needs to learn to speak her mind a bit more. Lets see how it goes.

    How I really felt (still feel) your sarcastic behavior, but as BFF’s do I love you anyway, so maybe this should not be heard. Bur I can predict a “moment” is sure to hilariously (I hope) arrive net panel set or two.

    Another example of these two being very different; Luann keeps too much of her thoughts bottled up while Bern could stand to keep it zipped now and then. But these two are the perpetual and yin and yang of friendship so I don’t think it will be the end for them.

    It’s past time for a talk with Bernice about how her sarcasm and snarky comments can be hurtful. It’s good to have a friend who sees through your B.S., but why can’t Bernice just tell Luann in plain language and kinder words when she thinks she’s going wrong? Nobody likes a smart-ass.

    I think this is generally applicable and just uses “servant” as an outstanding or extreme example: Ecclesiastes 7:21  Also take no heed unto all words that are spoken; lest thou hear thy servant curse thee: // — We all feel friction from other people and sometimes the heat causes us to boil over; if you happen to hear (or hear about) someone “badmouthing” you, don’t get mad at them, shrug your shoulders, shake it off, and maybe think about how maybe you really could improve in some ways, eh?
