Even I have to work to read some of these strips, but they do make sense. And the idea that some of us act obsessively rather than logically, and others see the logic of the situation but act in denial of it.

Which is kind of what separates Bruno from many (most?) written characters. Generally characters are written to not be self-aware, written to be victims of their own nature. She’s very aware of her nature, and is a victim of her not being able to act in a way that makes herself happy as a result.
