LOL - having her call you "Meyer" is extra funny after reading Rick's "Asking the Wrong Guy" posts.
Everyone calls him Meyer; for some reason, it just feels right. ~Missy
So when do Rick and Allison meet?
Ohhh my. I see a new Pink Floyd lyric- 'Hanging on in ear-splitting desperation is the American way......'I used to read this in the morning, but stopped because of coffee/tea through the nose. I just put a vodka tonic through the nose and on the keyboard. Thanks heaps Rick!
This week (I live in Seattle) I asked someone if his name was Scott. (You could visit, who knows?) He looked as though he looked like you in real life. He said no but didn't say what his name actually was. I should have asked if it was Meyer.
It's weird. I look at the third panel, and I keep thinking, "There's 'Meyer' meeting Missy's fr- fr- fr- FOURTH GRADE TEACHER." Maybe it's because she looks exactly like MY fourth grade teacher.
I sense a blind date. a very miserable blind date. but good for a few laughs.
Everyone calls him "Meyer"? He's the Jack Reacher of webcomics
Would finding out your wife has the same taste in people as you make you happy, because maybe she sees the same good qualities in you that you see in her? Or sad, because you married someone with the patience to put up with both the male and female Rick, so nothing you ever do could be that bad by comparison? (Since Missy answers these I'm mostly expecting the answer to be "Both.")
Meyer in french means "The best". To be specific, the best is "le meilleur". Maybe it's time to get called "Le Meyer".
Hi Meyer,just finished the novel, it's really great and a lot of fun! My favourite character is Jimmy. Like Joann Sfar said: If you have a funny character, everything that happens to him is funny.
Oh no, Missy has a guinea pig in her hair in the 4th panel!
Or maybe it's a capybara. Not sure.
I've always refered to spouses' friends as Friend-In-Laws.On a side note, panel 1 for the win this time. Excellent "Something like that" had me laughing.
The first panel's subtly deprecating humor was perfectly delivered.
Just finished the novel. It was a great read! Any thoughts on a sequel?
Behold the power of extrovert jazz hands.
First panel win. I was expecting more build up but no; you chose to slip "something like that" in right away. Perfect!
What, is no one else laughing uproariously at "she-Rick"? That's comedy gold, right there.
Hey, she can call you Betty and you can call her Al.
After panel 3 I now have Paul Simon's "You Can Call Me Al" stuck in my head....
Similar situation between my wife and my best friend's wife. (I know, that wouldn't work in Rick's case.) Our wives get along very well, too well in fact. It makes us paranoid about what information they may be sharing.
I think the concept of a she-rick is particularly horrifying.
I don't know why, but for some reason I heard a New Yawk accent from Al when she was talking. And why do I see a new nemesis for The Judger coming...?
Feelin' the ear-splitting desperation just now.(I live alone in a noisy neighborhood, so if anybody can hear me scream, they'll just ignore it)
I heard a New York accent, too. Can you draw an accent?
A rare win for panel 1!

I sense an entire relationship coming, from beginning to end. Rick and Al will put the fun back in dysfunctional.
