  1. 1) Janis is afraid she will look ridiculous with cucumbers on ear eyes and Arlo will laugh at her
    or
    2) Janis is afraid Arlo will take some “candid” pictures while she can’t see.

    This being Arlo & Janis, I’m inclined to favor number 2.

  2. I don’t think it’s any specific worry. She’s fine being nude. But the “blindfold” would make her feel naked and vulnerable.

  3. “Dare I ask what Janis is afraid Arlo will do if her eyes are covered? At their age?In a bathtub?”

    This being early Arlo and Janice I don’t think their age matters. And this being Arlo and Janice I assume it will be some surprise attack of hanky-panky.

  4. ““Dare I ask what Janis is afraid Arlo will do if her eyes are covered? At their age?”

    Does it matter? At her age, it’s her decision to reject the invitation.

  5. @ Andréa: Well, I can’t see him carrying the cucumber. But I supposed he could still have it with him. 😉

  6. @ CIDU Bill: There are ages, chosen by the government and varying from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, where people are not allowed to make that decision.

  7. SingaporeBill, are you saying the state determines the age at which somebody’s allowed to say “leave me alone in the bathtub”?

  8. I think he’s saying that the state determines the age at which someone’s allowed to say “don’t leave me alone in the bathtub”.

  9. @ Arthur: You are correct, of course. Though that is if you take “don’t leave me alone in the bathtub” figuratively. If you take “don’t leave me alone in the bathtub” literally, there are laws, or at least guidelines, when the literal applies but the figurative is forbidden.

  10. you saying the state determines the age at which somebody’s allowed to say ‘leave me alone in the bathtub’?”

    I certainly meant to imply this. It’s more accurate to say that some people enter a medical condition caused by age at which point they are no longer capable of making their own decisions, including being alone.
