You'll Love David's Bridal

Friday November 4, 2011
Sugar, are you trying to tell me that Paul is a weird Oedipal oaf and deep down you think you're making a huge mistake marrying him? ...No? You're just worried about the dress? Whoops, sorry! Did that come off as TERRIBLE AND BITCHY? You know us Texas ladies, not a thread of tact strung up in our magenta hair.

I though Lu Ann's mom was institutionalized or something crazy like that, but I think actually Lu Ann's sister was institutionalized (or something) and Mrs. Lu Ann is taking care of her. Or something. Here's the only strip I could find about it, back when Lu Ann was hanging out with her pops up in South Dakota. Funny she didn't want to spend more time out there!

Thanks for the flashbacks. I don't really expect consistency in a comic strip, but one thing is consistent - boyfriends must die!

Are the authors revising Lu Ann's past? Is she no longer a widow? Look at today's (Monday's) strip. Most second brides aren't wiggy about choosing a dress, nor do they consider traditional white gowns. Or do they these days? Miss Manners, help!

No no, mrvy, see that's why Ruby just about gave herself whiplash with that head spin Monday. As a widow, Lu Ann can't be allowed to wear white. BUT, has Lu Ann even told Paul that she's a widow? I think not, considering the other things she hasn't told him. Will this give Ruby a chance to perform a Mary Worth-y meddle? We shall see.
