Maybe Tolstoy started this way.
I realize you posted this almost five months ago, but I'm going through your archives... what's really bothersome about this strip is that this is completely out of character for Diane, who's often shown doting on Barry to the point of showing extreme favortism. So here she is telling him not to expect too many presents so that she can get more for herself. Not something she'd do to Barry - but something I could see her doing to Curtis for sure.
