He just lives there…..

As I’ve said before, Lynn really doesn’t seem to have liked it that Rod was (and is) more respected by the people of Lynn Lake than she was. In her mind, she deserved to be more popular because she was in all those newspapers and he wasn’t. Did it matter to her that he was more useful a person to have around or that he was a local boy made good who did good things for his community? No, it didn’t. She thought that she should be handed popularity on a silver tray despite it being obvious that she hated the place and thought she was too good to consort with the locals. This not only led her to make his avatar into an inept dentist and churlish husband, she also decided to “even the score” and “seek justice” by making him into a blundering jackass father who couldn’t be trusted around the kids because he’d rather read the paper than be near them and didn’t know how to look after the house.  From what I understand, Rod wanted her to tone down the character to make him more sympathetic because people thought that he was as stupid, selfish and inept as John; Lynn failed to comply because she thought that not only did her husband lack a sense of humor and fail to distinguish fantasy from reality, he needed to be taken down a peg or two.
