    Can Bernice really be this clueless??

    Well, this explains why Piro has been especially moody.. he’s concerned about his mother.

    Did Bernice try to match her outfit with the Degroot’s lamp? ;)

    I see what your problem is, Bernice. You spend too much time inside your head rather than focusing on him and listening. You missed that he needs to be with someone because his mom is in he hospital because you’re obsessed with being a psych major and all that. Forget that. Be there and offer comfort. It’s not about you. As a counselor you have to first understand that it’s never about you but about your patients. Put aside your ego.

    Is the intent here to show that Bernice is a terrible psych major because it sure comes off that way. She’s so busy trying to recall how to be quiet and listen to the patient that she can’t hear Piro asking for commiseration. This is like last week when the author show us that Tara and Luann were a bad influence on Piro because they would listen to him, only pushing their conceived “cures” for his maladies.

    A really perfect display of irony. B is so busy thinking about how she’s completed reading about ‘how to listen’ that she isn’t listening! Naturally, Piro is depressed – his mother is in the hospital. But B the counselor, Tara the ‘caring cousin’ and Luann the would-be comedian are too busy to listen to him…

    Now, some of Us will be wondering “Who is Piro’s mom?”

    Could be, she’s just a “plot device” and will NEVER be revealed

    One’s parent being in the hospital is a good reason to have a lot on one’s mind. Of course, I wonder why Piro couldn’t tell his COUSIN Tara about it.

    But getting back to Piro’s mom: What if it’s someone We KNOW who is still featured in the “Character’s” section?

    And whom most of Us HATE? ;-)

    Piro said his problem and it’s heavy. Dunno if Bernice will notice it, but this is a huge step forward and a great demonstration of the trust he has in her. I don’t understand why he didn’t tell Tara. She’s her cousin and the one at the hospital is her aunt, it should be ok to tell her. My explanation is that Piro wants the special relationship to be with Bernice, the girl he puts on a pedestal and who he likes. I wonder if she will realize this or if she will continue to think he wants to talk to her just because she’s a psych major.

    Piro has chosen the perfect audience. He can talk about his mom as much as he wants and say whatever he wants. The selfish, self-absorbed and narcissistic Bernice will never hear a word he says. Now we know the true core of her personality.
