Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"Girls Just Wanna Have A Dialogue".

Michael!
Oh...Jannie.
Looking good. You?
Great. Girlfriend...

KitKat said...

Michael has been working out since we last saw him. I hope this is several weeks since yesterday’s strip, and that his girlfriend is Toby.

Now that Jannie got flunked, she is moving on to Michael to help her pass and now he's the one giving her the brush off. Watch Jannie imitate Michael's desperation of a few weeks ago as he calmly vapes in front of her.

Ooooh. BURN!

With a little longer hair Michael could be a young Tommy.

If Jannie is to stay in character, tomorrow we should see, "YOUR GIRLFRIEND??? WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOUR &#@&%$!* GIRLFRIEND??? YOU JUST ASKED ME OUT FOR LUNCH AND ICE CREAM, YOU TWO-TIMING $#@&*%#$!!! I'LL RUIN YOU! I SWEAR, I'LL %$#@&% RUIN YOU IF IT'S THE LAST THING I DO!!!"

Michael's girlfriend will be his history professor, Dr. Oldenhott. Rumor has it he's acing the class.

@Sandi Ego

Hilarious!

@Sandi Ego: So glad my cube mate's not here because he'd think I was crazy for laughing out loud. It would be even funnier if his girlfriend is Iris, who's seeing him behind Zak's back.

@Scottie McW, that would be hysterical if that happened. Unfortunately, we're not writing this, KM is and Jannie will respond with something banal. Either that or she'll meet a holy hobo like Nola Wolverson did and she'll change her evil ways.

@Sandi Ego - Perfect!

Wanders, you hit the nail on the head. How much time does Jannie spend sucking up to people? That just seems like so much more work than just reading a damn book or two.

Also, your car story struck a little too close to home, not for me so much but for most of the guys I've dated. For some reason, I date guys that like old cars with "character." There are at least three boyfriends, including my current one, whose car I've ended up pushing at one point or another. Just buy a damn car that works, I say, but noooooo. My current boyfriend has a 98 Geo Metro that just stops running mid-drive. Three different mechanics can't figure out what's wrong. But he won't get rid of it. Anyway, I'm glad you came to your senses, and I bet Mrs. Wanders is also.

Love the BFH, Nance. But your Melania BFH from a few days ago is probably one of my favorites.

SandiEgo, that would be fun! If only. Although, you do have a point; he was just asking her out the other day, and now all of a sudden he has a girlfriend? Of course, maybe it's been weeks in the Worthiverse. It certainly seems like it's been weeks that this storyline has dragged on. Weeks and weeks and weeks...

For someone who is looking good, it appears that Michael is suffering from untreated scoliosis.

IMJB1964: I bought a 1993 Oldsmobile. Granted it only had 10,000 miles on it (now 35,000) and it runs like a dream, but it does leak and the back seat foot pans fill up with water whenever it rains. I’m working on it.

I got my wish! YAY!

Jannie, "Ooh, Michael, you really beefed up! How about forming a study group with me for Professor Cameron's Shakespeare class? If you play your cards right, I might let you write my next 'big assignment' for me!"

Michael, "Whoopee!"

... I think Michael is just SAYING he has a girlfriend to save face in front of Jannie.

Nance said...

@Imjb1964--Thanks. That BFH is one of my faves as well. And speaking of cars...

My husband (then my rather new boyfriend) was taking me home late one night when we were driving up a small hill in his 1963 Chevy Impala, a car he bought for $150 a couple years back. The year was 1978. Suddenly, we heard a huge clunk, and the car shuddered and stopped. He uncharacteristically swore, put on the emergency brake, and got out. I saw him trotting back about thirty feet, and I lost him in the darkness. All I could do was wait in the car. Obviously, it was The Age Before Cellphones. Shortly, he came back, breathlessly angry.

"You're going to be late getting home," he said. "That clunk we heard was my gas tank. It's lying on the side of the road back there."

@Wanders - does your Oldsmobile have a sunroof? Our 2006 Buick had the same sort of leak problem, it turns out that there's a drain channel around the sunroof, and hoses of some kind that run down inside the windshield and (possibly door) posts - if a hose becomes disconnected, or the channel or hose gets clogged, water ends up in the back seat pan.

SATURDAY: Both Jannie and Michael's new girlfriend are sporting purple tops, but note that the more successful of the two is showing a little bit of bare midriff. That could've been you with the passing grade and the hot new beau, Jannie, if you weren't such a lazy, foul-mouthed prude.

KitKat said...

Saturday
Jannie’s last resort will be trying her act on Hilton Berkes.

Oedipa Maas said...

Maybe Jannie wears purple because she's on the same wavelength as Mary Worth?

Next development: Dawn wanders by and chats with Jannie for a couple of weeks (our time). Then: "Oh, Jannie, I'm sorry to hear you're having so many problems! I have a friend at our condo complex who's really great at solving problems and giving advice! Plus, she makes really awesome blueberry muffins. I'll just whip out my cell and set up an appointment for you. Do you mind if I come along?"

Jannie: "!"

SUNDAY

Don't beat yourself up, Ian.

Let Toby do it.

Sunday

“I guess I’m only human...as we all are. Except Mary...”

lmjb1964 said...

@Scottie, ha! That sounds right.

@Wanders, ah, I see. Still going for character. :) Good luck with the leak. I had a 98 Honda Odyssey that leaked somewhere into the third row seat. Every now and then I'd open up the seat to find it covered with mold. Good times!

One of the things I love about this place is that people notice things in the strip I miss. If Yahoonski hadn't commented on the purple shirts both Jannie and Michael's girlfriend were wearing, I would never have noticed that the girlfriend has somehow changed shirts, apparently without Michael having to move his arm.

MONDAY
That dinner is going to be ruined.

MONDAY

But Ian, I've been slaving over this washer all day and have finally learned to boil water!

What is she cooking ON THE STOVE at 350 degrees?
