I'm all for the "helping with marriage" school of thought. Hildegard knows what was like to have her husband cheat on her and leave her. From what we've seen of her, I seriously doubt that she'd wish that on anyone else.<P>In fact, she and Alison seem to be quite similar, in that respect. Makes you wonder about other similarities, doesn't it?<P>------------------

I tend to think that no good will come of this. Despite (what I believe are) good intentions on the part of Mr. Bradley, he should know that his irregular behavior will make him look badly in the eyes of his wife.

Sarah is a bit more than suspicious now it would seem. Now the real question is, what's going on with Ms. Page? Are they just talking & such or has Josh advanced that plot behind our backs as well?<P>No matter what, a very large sack of poo is about to hit an industrial strength fan when Sarah goes to the coffee shop after him, or goes on her own and has a talk with Ms. Page.

In that case, when Sarah goes to the shop and finds out whats really going on, maybe it won't be all bad. You never know, Josh is idolized for his twistyness, anything is possible.

Well, it looks like I'm in over my head, new rules? I just got caught up on all of the old ones. What am I to do?<P>I can't hope to understand how twisty this will end up, but I'm glad that sub-contracting of said action of poking by the second party upon the first party by a tertiary party (where said first party is the "newbie" and second party is the requester of the action of poking) could result in a directly proportional increase of the quantitative amount of twisty-ness as it relates to the number of times said action occurs.<P>Ummm...I had a thought I wanted to convey, but my mind has turned on me tonight, it was something about how Sarah might not find out the whole truth about what Phil is doing and how that might end up killing the relationship. Question is, what effect is this going to have on the Bradley sisters?

Dierdre, being the one most roughed-up by life, will probably be hurt the least, and might even be expecting it. Pheobe also has some cynicism as a shield, but she is in flux emotionally and probably be fairly shook up. Noelle, with no idea what's going on, will e devestated; I've seen what divorce can do to kids, and it is usually not pretty. <P>But to tell the truth, I doubt it will happen. Though Phil's intentions might not be entirely honorable (though he might not even admit it to himself), I don't see a family with this many strong-willed people falling apart easily, though it may be the kids who pull it together again.<P>------------------

Okay, now I have a really big question here. Just how much cigarette smoke is considered "reeking" here? I mean I admit that cigarette smoke will linger, but if Hildegarde was smoking outside and only she is doing the smoking, it shouldn't be all that smelly. I don't smoke myself, but I do work with a couple of ladies who do. They go out for a cigarette every couple of hours, but I can't smell much smoke on them when they return, and it fades very quickly. Just how close is Phil to Hildegarde, if that is who he's hanging out with, and where are they if/when together?<P>I think that, as Fool has commented, it is more likely that Sarah will suspect Phil of going back to a bar or something, where the closed environment of the room would definately have a stronger lingering smoke smell.<P>In any case, I would think Noelle would eat potato chips at <I>her</I> party...<P>Wapiko-chan<P>------------------

*Passes Wapiko some Salt & Vinegar Pringles.*<P>Hm.... I like the notion that he's asking for help with the marriage.<P>However, that "laundry" comment (panel 3) has my radar beeping. I've known a couple folks in affairs; invariably, the hygiene-factor is the one thing that lets them succeed/fail at keeping it secret.<P>And Wapiko, have you ever talked to an ex-smoker (which I suspect Mrs. B. is)? They have noses like bloodhounds when it comes to old cigarette smoke.

I don't doubt that it would be unsettling, just that I would like to know how bad it is. As someone who had a chain-smoking co-worker in a previous office, I know that it can linger forever. But my experience has been that if you are only around it for a brief time, it should wear off relatively soon. So it shouldn't have been particularly bad and would have worn off, perhaps even before Phil got home.<P>I guess one would also then have to ask just how long he was gone, ne?<P>(Thanks for the potato chips!

It's been my experience that smoke lingers in clothing for a loooong time. Nasty stuff. I hate going to bars for that reason. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"> But then, maybe that's why she's suspicious, since he does "reek" of it and that wouldn't potentially happen unless he'd been around it for awhile. Hmmmm....<P>*polarbee continues to procrastinate her thesis paper even though it is due in 7 hours*<P>Oh lord. 10 pages away from a degree and I'm flittering away here. Someone beat me! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif"><P>------------------
