    Finally, Bernice says something intelligent. They, indeed, would both need help.

    It’s a shame he’s going to drop the class because of Luann and Tara.


    So what sort of help for Piro was Bernice thinking about?

    I see Piro is still letting Bernice interfere (ie, “fix”) in his life. And now he’s going to drop the writing class because Luann and Tara are too much, without telling them they’re too much. So much passive-aggression. Since they are in California the best thing he could do is move to New York.

    Dropping a course he’s already paid for, has already done some work for and likes…just to avoid other students he’ll probably still run into? Clearly he looks for ways to mess himself up…and does need some kind of help.

    That’s for sure. The kids have been through enough of a disaster without having the added trauma of having Berince the Merry Muse as their caregiver.

    I’m starting to think I might have been wrong about seeing Piro as a sweet Eeyore-type. Now it seems like he’s unloading emotional baggage WAY too much and expecting people to know exactly what he needs and expressing displeasure in them not doing the perfect thing. I’ve had a friend who was emotionally incontinent after only having hung out with her a few times and it was incredibly uncomfortable to feel like she just decided, “yeah, you’ll do as my free therapist.” It’s certainly good to express yourself to your friends but it’s unfair to ask your friend to do that.

    And of course this being Bernice is added irony. She’s studying to be a therapist but makes it the central focus of her existence to squash Luann’s ambition and drive. She was also really dismissive of wanting him in her life until he flattered her by calling her a beacon of light which fed her ego and made her put up with him.

    The suspicious part of Me says that this was all a clever ploy on Piro’s to CON Bernice into babysitting.

    Ah, probably not. Piro ain’t that ruthless and one Jonah Daytona in this Strip is ENOUGH anyway.

    Besides, Bernie has never dealt with kids. At least not that I can remember. Heck, she probably doesn’t even LIKE kids.

    Too bad, Star Head.

    The one gal that is GOOD with kids (Thanks to Gunther’s encouragement years ago) is one of the gals you just dissed. Namely, Luann.


    Will Bernie offer to let Piro use the “Not Her’s” DeGroot house as “Sanctuary?”

    And how long will it be before the DeGroots find out, and have had enough and put them BOTH out? ;-)

    lowly unworthies… we need to talk… Pedro is a manipulative swine playing the poor-little-me pity card to weasel gullible Burnoose into doing something she would prefer not doing. Is The❤️Count Right or Is The❤️Count Right? What’s in it for Burnoose? A ride on Pedro’s minuscule version of Nature Boy Ric Flair’s Space Mountain? Pedro’s Ant Hill? Child please… Wellllll… WWA❤️ED? The❤️Count does believe Benevolent Ann❤️Eiffel would get Burnoose a major cosmetic, hair and body make over, lasic surgery and new micro mini black cocktail dress and thong bikini wardrobe re do after having her old one cleaned and burned. Then, Stunning Ann❤️Eiffel would grant Bae Berniece Temporary ❤️Eiffelette status and take her someplace easy, say Las Vegas, to give her a shot at Stalking the Wild Shoog Daddy. Who knows? If it works out off with the training wheels and bra and set the girl free. As far as Pedro… well… start off by reporting his birth giver to Children’s’ Welfare Services for being a career baby birther for all those child support food and housing bennies to spend on more crack. With that… time to go. Time for Pedro to go but that’s another matter completely. Thank Heavens for Ann❤️Eiffel! The Solution for Every Problem! TTFN, lowly unworthies… Have an Ann❤️Eiffel Day!

    Piro took Luann and Tara’s attentions as if they were torment. Probably if he had explained to them what was bothering him they would have understood, but he never wanted their help. This is really sad, exaggerated and shows how stressed Piro is by his family situation. Incredibly, it seems that Bernice may actually be able to help him, at least to see that he needs help if he wants to lighten this heavy situation. Let’s hope this is the beginning of Bernice’s change, as well as Piro’s.

    At some point Piro has to make the effort to be honest with his friends and cousin. It’s clear, while their efforts are heavy handed at times they do care about him and he seems to realize that. Thinking he will be pleasantly surprised on their ability to help him if he decides to be more direct with them.

    Now Piro is going to quit the class that his “jerk” step dad probably paid for (since Piro doesn’t work). That seems in character for Mister Whiny Baby. The bad thing is if he quits the class, what will Luann and Tara occupy themselves with?

    I know he doesn’t want to talk, but really the only practical solution is for him to say at least one sentence. “I’m stressed at home, writing is therapeutic for me, I appreciate your help but I don’t need adventures or jokes to get through my day, thanks.” Heck maybe Luann and Tara might even be willing to help look after the kids a little, since they both seem to care about him so much.

    Here’s a thought..instead of fleeing the scene at school, how about Piro telling Tara and Luann what’s going on at home like he did Bern. I have a hunch they’d be way less goofy if they knew what he was dealing with. But they never had a chance because he wasn’t talking. Too busy running.

    Put the kids to work. Things needing doing around the house are often tasks fairly small children can do. They won’t do it as well as you can at first, but performance improves. In my class there were some males who married because they didn’t know how to cook or do other simple tasks and there were females who married because they didn’t realize they could get paying jobs on them own.

    As the great Jerry Reed sang:

    “While she’s livin’ like a queen on alimony

    I’m workin’ two shifts,

    Eatin’ baloney, askin’ myself

    “Why didn’t you just learn to cook?” "

    (Don’t gripe at me about his mischaracterization. Personally I like baloney but my beloved doesn’t so we seldom have any. Either she doesn’t like ME cooking or she doesn’t like MY cooking.)

    Isn’t Luann great with kids? She’s good with Shannon and was working at that daycare for a long while. All the kids there just loved her. I’ll bet having her babysit is part of the solution. She and Bernice could tag-team and help each other. Maybe Tara could help but I doubt she would have the patience.

    Bernice has no interest in dealing with kids. No one should be watching those kids who isn’t trained in dealing with a dysfunctional family setting. CPS should be contacted to see what’s going on in that house. This is a comic strip, so there’s no reason that CPS can’t fix it, unlike in the real world.

    That was rather unkind of Piro to say. And passive aggressive. Piro could just tell Luann and Tara that he needs space, but he’d rather dump on them. None of these young women should be trying to “fix” Piro at all. Leave him be and find a healthy relationship to be in. What a horrible message to send out: women must fix broken men.
