There is no punch line! OHO!
Enjoy your drama, yo.
It’s good for you.
She wouldn’t be second if she hadn’t taped him without his permission and put it on porn sites….sigh, but try to explain that to her without getting mauled….drama mama
Mick’s been taking advantage of the perks of that revelation a bit too freely as well. I’m guessing Heidi’s ‘no, go ahead and fuck Alex too’ falls under the tenet of ‘let’s see how far he takes this.’ My guess is that being inexperienced in relationships, he’s stupidly crossed the ‘I should’ve chosen one over the other by now’ line he never knew existed, and Heidi’s making the decision for him.
They’re both fucked – it’s just in this situation she’s managed to pull off the Female Hat Trick – she fucked up, she apologized, and then managed to tie a noose and let the dumb prick she wronged walk right into it and hang himself.
In a nod to the old FLEM comics, though – I wouldn’t be surprised if she gets crushed by a malfunctioning cruise missile on her way to DFW – or perhaps a new route – eaten by Godzilla or literally mauled to death by socially-awkward men the moment she steps into the wrong train car in Tokyo.
She’ll get dissolved by Eben and Snooch’s Attack Jello before she even makes it to the airport.
Eaten by one of Randy Milholland’s trapdoor alligators.
Canadian trapdor aligators are on of the fastest spreading invasive species.
That’s the thing about poly: He hasn’t walked into a noose, she can only set the trap for herself. When she bails, he’s not really losing, he’s still getting laid.
@destruya, she will lose everything in the crash that is coming, and have to go to work as a nyotaimori…
her 1st customer will be dr lector on one of his rare visits to tokyo…
she wants him mono. and alex has introduced him to this wonderful world and wont go back. she’ll get shitty and he’ll bite back with the camera incident. i just hope they can stay friends one day…
Still holding out hope for the threesome…
Because of course, behaving like a whiny little brat is the sure and certain way to keep someone in a relationship. Mick is going to have to learn, soon, that one of the key things about polyamory is that you must be able to communicate with your significant half-dozen.
Thanks. That’s the best one-liner I’ve read all week!
“he made me an offer that can’t really pass up.” There’s somethIng mIssIng from that sentence. I’m sure of It. I just can’t put my fInger on It.
Did it involve a severed horse’s head in her bed?
I just spent five minutes thinking up a funny, prostitution-themed joke before I realized what you meant.
“he made me an offer that I can’t really pass up.”
“he made me an offer that can’t really be passed up.”
Heidi was always a waste of time. Hope she’s gone for good now.
It sounds like Mick has embraced a poly relationship just fine, and understands it better than Heidi does. She seems to think that being a secondary is a waiting game. A place holder relationship, that will become monogamous (Or she’ll become primary) when Mick ‘makes a decision’. He has made a decision already; he’s poly and Alex is his primary. What Heidi does not understand is that even if the relationship was just the two of them, she will never be ‘Primary Material” to Mick. She’ll be a secondary even if it’s just the two of them. She’s still crazy…
heh, she was gunning for the promotion?
Heidi isn’t crazy, at least not in this aspect. She didn’t sign up for a poly relationship. Yeah, she dynamited her relationship with Mick but good, and she bears the entirety of the blame for that. But the root cause of it all is exactly what Mick’s fucking up now: communication.
Just because Alex is poly, and Mick’s lying back and thinking of England, doesn’t mean that Heidi has to be wired that way. She absolutely has the right, as anyone does, to go “No, this isn’t working for me” and walk the hell away from the relationship, if there’s no commitments like kids or property or web-comics involved. Due to this blow-up over the gunstore she doesn’t even have her commitment to Alex as a business partner to impede her on her exit, stage left.
Disagree with her attitude all you want. She absolutely does not have the right to dictate the terms of Alex and Mick’s relationship. Sure as fuck has the right to set limits on her and Micks relationship though, as does Mick himself.
Of course: this is all fictional, and I’m sure that Hynes & Grant has something eveeeel cooked up for us in the relationship drama stakes as we press on with the story. And, naturally, the people who have the absolute right to dictate the terms of the relationships of anyone in the strip are the authors.
No, she’s still crazy.
She’s blaming *him* for something *she* chose. OK, it isn’t her bag (isn’t really mine, either, come to think of it), and she’s using this business opportunity to bail. Fine.
But as for “setting the limits of her and Mick’s relationship”, well, those limits were already set – she can bail out and terminate the intimate relationship at any time, for any or no reason. But she’s upset she can’t unilaterally dictate new terms inside the relationship. Closing a previously open relationship is really no different than if she and Mick were in a mono committed relationship, and she decided to unilaterally make it poly. . . or get pissed that Mick wouldn’t agree to open a previously closed relationship.
It’s times like this I wish the comic had more frames. But at least there’s two more days in the week to get to, unless Something Happens, and we end up getting a political rant or more gun puns.
Is wearing a low-cut dress to the break-up dinner really a good idea?
When does Heidi *not* wear a low cut dress (or top)?
Why the fuck did she make him wait a weekend for this? Clearly she made up her mind, why not just fucking tell him?
