So, she *does* understand what the fish is saying…
Maybe she’s nuts and is talking to herself?
“Who needs a therapist when you can talk to yourself?
Someone who talks to their self, that’s who.” — Spider-Man
my theory is everyone on the planet is nuts to a certain extent 🙂 we have to be to live here and deal with stuff that happens on a daily basis which would blow your mind if you were sane 😀
You are never alone when you have yourself to talk to.
What? One of your characters being crazy? Oh, p-shaw my good man. P-shaw indeed.
Is it sad that Katherine is losing an argument to a fish?
No more so than Calvin losing to Hobbes.
I love her armpit stubble in the first frame.
She is a natural woman after all…
No, if she were a natural women she would have hair there. Stubble indicates she at least tries to get rid of it.
Let’s hope that it’s because she’s continued to frequent the beach!
It makes her seem more real. I mean who has the time & energy to shave every day?
Far from all men bother to shave every day (though I do).
Ah, but some of those men that cultivate on their faces that which grows wild under their arms actually look distinguished…
Indeed. I haven’t bothered to shave since . . . lemme see . . . oh, 1982 or thereabout
Only men who are vain or are concerned about appearances for work reasons – such as in the military where being clean shaven wasn’t just good form, it could mean the difference between life and death. (think I’m kidding? ask anyone who is fire-team trained about what even a day’s stubble can do to the seal of your breathing apparatus and how quickly that smoke will KILL you)
As for me, since I got out of the Navy I *never* shave on days off unless I am going out somewhere, and even then only if the wife is with me (I like to snuggle, sue me :P). Even on work days I’ll only shave 2 or 3 out of 5, but my stubble also grows slow enough that a day’s growth doesn’t show much on me unless you are standing close.
I actually have my own theories about how we came to this insanity of women shaving all body hair and why we should fight the insanity, return to what’s practical … but this post is long enough already, maybe another time.
Weeeellll … I talk to my dogs.. so why not talk to a fish?
As long as they don’t talk back to you, you’re good to go. 🙂
My wife talks to the dogs. And the television. And the microwave.
well… it helps if you speak dog.. they’re physically incapable of speaking english, after all.
Some would say she’s a few screws loose, but who HASN’T talked to themselves or an animal at one time or another in the privacy of home?
I know I have once or twice…;)
Oscar seems to know Katherine more than she knows herself.
Besides… its always less scarey to be told something (albeit thru spits and ppbbthths) than it is to say it yourself 🙂
Btw if the spitting is a beta ways of flirting does that mean Oscar IS katherines bf?
Betta are Harem fish…need several females to breed, then are antisocial again.
Pit stubble ! Heheheh . Awesome ! I think I have now seen it all in comics . : )
I talk to my cats all of the time! So does my husband. Sometimes I beleive that they have more sense and better manners than most of the humans I know. They don’t have to speak to be able to talk back to you. A cat’s physical makeup is very eloquent when it comes to body language. You CAN lose an argument to an animal,too! Just try saying “NO!!!!” to a headstrong cat.
I think Kath is feeling just a little lonely and left out AND (you should pardon the expression) I think that there is more to her than meets the eye!
Are we assembling the cast of the next adventure? Phix is out in the world for the first time since roughly forever; Kat is feeling sidelined, and doesn’t like it; Tina is showing other, unexpected talents; Musclebutt is showing signs of maturity, and there is a small, angry ghost that is haunting a golem – or perhaps that last is the adventure…
I think you’re on the right track. Definitely setting the stage for great fun to come.
Is she naked there on the couch?
We have seen that she likes to be naked in her apartment prior to today (Insert link here). Always tastefully displayed, of course. More’s the pity.
Maybe Katherine will get a chance to use her wealth of knowledge to help Monica through the next crisis. Or Oscar will. He is a Siamese Fighting Fish after all, he may just have to get his fins dirty defending his girl.
That would be cute. Monica poits Oscar to the scene of the final showdown, which is happenning underwater. Oscar sums up the situation, sees Katherine is in bad trouble and makes a bee-line for the bad guy/girl/demon, poking him/her/it in the eye at just the critical moment, thereby saving the day.
Great, ya gone and guessed the next storyline! >D
I talk to my puppets sometimes, and they talk back. That doesn’t make me crazy, does it?
BTW, need more nude
depends what they tell you to do 😉
And whether you do it.
OTOH, I don’t find it too unrealistic that puppets could talk back. It’s one sign of a properly developed character, as authors will freely tell you.
Ooh! A big hint that Katherine is going to be much more involved in the next adventure! (If I’m right, I’m psyched.)
Oh, well said, Oscar. Well said.
For those of you who think you can’t converse with a fish:
The voices in my head are pointing at you and laughing.
The voices in my head haven’t reached a consensus on that yet. About half think it’s none of our business, six or so want to join in the conversation, two think talking to a fish is … strange …. and then there is the one sulking in the corner who thinks the rest of us is nuts.
Curious . . . two-three weeks ago, Mon said Shelley and Doubt were right, and she’s not a field-researcher type. Now Kath’s saying she’s not the field-researcher type. Odds on the two of them getting stuck into a sitch where they have to *go* into the field together, like it or not?
Where’s the new strip?
Pibgorn‘s late, too…
Hey, my avatar and comment ID went away…..Hadda re-do it. Probably wind up with a different NOTDilbert face. Oh, well.
Hrum, back to it…. Isn’t there a really BIG spider out on the Nazca plains? And a cat? And a snake? Maybe even…. Hmpf. No goat. And definitely no sphinx. Darn.
Nope, still the same quizical Monica face I’ve grown accustomed to.
Also, no giant demon baristas out there, either.
If one can converse with fish, one would probably be a mermaid; I just think Kathy’s being self-fish, that’s all!
