Just as Philo’s about to put the steaks on the grill too. What timing.
Well, I think we know why Edison has been acting so strange as of late.
Should be an interesting conversation. If they even get that far.
Judging by Robie’s face this is going to go downhill fast.
Pulses up chair and popcorn to watch.
Good idea. He loves popcorn.
Drunken phone calling. Getting you in trouble since phones exist.
I imagine that the third or fourth call ever made was Alexander Graham Bell’s assistant calling him up in the middle of the night with a list of grievances.
Well, that explains what she was so worried about. But considering his obvious resentment toward her drinking, I really don’t think it’s a good idea to call him when she’s this sloshed.
Excellent point. But she doesn’t have the nerve when she’s less sloshed.
“Pot-valiant”. That’s a new one on me, but it makes sense when I think about it. After all, I’m familiar with the term “Tosspot”. 🙂
The trouble with trying to rebuild the bridges you’ve burned, is that the fire cracks the foundation, and makes it unstable. 🙁
Once again, I thank my 1948 Roget’s Thesaurus. What a wealth of interesting words.
Yeah, we’ll have to wait and see how this bridge building goes. Another problem with bridges is that they don’t work unless you can fix both sides.
Oh no. And she’d made such great progress during her last meeting with Dilbert. Robie’s expression is devastating. He knows what’s going on.
He’s been around Edison when she’s done something stupid so many times that he knows the signs.
At least he’s not trapped in a freezer.
Gah. Now I have to wait a few days in uneasy anticipation – you KNOW this isn’t going to go well.
I’m guessing that she wants to just be friends with Philo – because it hurts Dilbert that his parents don’t speak to each other. She’s happy with her Pye-man, I don’t think she wants to return to the old status quo – it hurt too much. But Melaredblu is right – Philo is not going to be impressed with her dutch courage.
I’m trying to remember where I first read the phrase “pot valiant.” I think it might have been Heinlein. Not saying he originated it – but I think that’s the first source I ever saw for it. …. Huh. the Wiktionary has a quote from Sir Walter Scott from 1831 that uses the phrase. God, I love the internet.
Thanks! Sometimes the title just pops out, and sometimes I have to take the dog for a walk to give me time to figure it out.
