Well you know how kids are during airplanes... especially the young ones.

That’s why she isn’t travelling yet! :P

Russ is either going to confess that she hasn't actually slept for an hour or for some reason that smell isn't coming from Amanda. LOL! :D

Linda thought "nappy" meant "nap" :P

Oh boy and girl, the stewardesses will have their hands full making the airline smell good again... (I know it well. My sister had an accident once, and it smelled in mid-flight; no diaper! My family had to get a blanket to cover her bottom up and had to constantly help the cabin crew spray neutralizing odor in the fuselage.)

Amanda wasn’t travelling, Take note that it is Russell’s parents who have luggage and not Russ and Linda. :)

Ah, I see.
However, you can say too that Amanda has brought "some personal unwanted luggage"...

Russ, you’ve been with her for six years, married for almost four years...and you STILL haven’t taught her all of the British slang! :P
Thomas K Dye 23rd Oct 2020, 3:50 AM
When would he ever have an opportunity to use the British word for "diaper"?

Queen’s English is not easy to learn for an American English speaker. Russell and Linda may have been married for four years, but it is going to take time for her to be able to know what Russell is saying. A book or website focusing on Queen’s English might be able to help her.

In the film Austin Powers in Goldmember, Austin and his father noted the differences between Queen’s English and American English. Subtitles appeared noting what they were saying in Queen’s English.

Installing Windows gives the user a choice of four varieties of English to use.

Uh oh, someone forgot to change a diaper. Parents, this is why boys need to play with dolls when they are little.
Shaggy 23rd Oct 2020, 2:02 AM
I know what a nappy is but why do they call it that?
FreyFox 23rd Oct 2020, 9:35 AM
I dunno, why do Americans call it a diaper? :P
Shaggy 23rd Oct 2020, 2:04 PM
I dunno. LOL

I can feel for Linda here, I do imagine it must be hard to prove to your spouse's parents (whichever gender you are) that you are a good parent to their grandchild. Although I think they'll be fine with how she's doing because she's already on good terms with them. If she had gotten off to a bad foot meeting them, they'd be much more likely to over-analyze everything they see her doing with their grandkid and be sure to tell Russ that he messed up marrying her :D Like, for example, Russ not being on the best of terms with Linda's mom, I can imagine *her* scrutinizing every little detail of Russ' fatherhood XD

Also I'm getting damn tired of my comments showing up on the previous strip instead of the current one. I am really starting to hate the new comments system! :(
FreyFox 23rd Oct 2020, 9:36 AM
I've not been having that problem, but there's unfortunately nothing I can do about it because it's the host that changed it :(
