Wait... that's it? I found a good deal, you sure know how to pick 'em? Let the comedy hijinks commence as Mary and Toby embark on the cheapest cruise inside the Bermuda Triangle. Maybe the ship will break down and they'll be stranded without air conditioning or running water. Maybe they'll get kidnapped at their first port of call. Maybe they'll eat bad shrimp and spend the entire cruise throwing up... or perhaps that will just be us.

Jeff has successfully fulfilled his responsibilities as a Man of Honor. Recognizing that Ian will be at a teaching summit, he acknowledges Mary's invitation as thoughtful and kind, but graciously declines due to health, while silently knowing it would be inappropriate for him as a single man to travel with his girlfriend and another man's wife. Why? Because he would go CRAZY!!

I was at least hoping we would get to see Jeff's trick knee, perhaps pulling a rabbit out of his pants.

This week's public service announcement was part of King Features Syndicate's settlement with the Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) after Karen Moy's hatchet job a few years back:

"Dear Wendy, thanks for your recent advice, but I sent you my letter three weeks ago! While waiting for your response, the company offered the job to someone else! Thanks for being so slow to respond. If it weren't for you, I'd have to go to work today. But as it is, I have plenty of time to go on a cruise. It's a good thing that financial concerns aren't ever a consideration in the Worthiverse. Signed, Broke but Who Cares."

If everyone with a knee problem never went on a cruise, the cruise lines would lose half their passengers! I've never cruised, but I have many friends who do, and most of them wish their health problems were limited to their knees. Cruise ships are floating geriatric wards.

I'm sorry to have been away, dear readers. I just couldn't take it anymore. My life seemed too important and precious to spend another moment blogging about Iris and Tommy Beedie. But now: Toby! I can go on ignoring my responsibilities, and focusing on what truly is inspiring. Although I must admit, my first hope was that this story would follow Ian to his teaching summit in Seattle, it looks like we get to enjoy "Toby and Mary go to the Tropics" instead. Hopefully, they'll discover the Lost Treasure of the Golden Monkey of Stinky Island.

"I believe in you son! But if you fail again..."

"Thanks, Ma. I owe you a pizza."

For an unemployed widow who attends an expensive university, lives in an upscale Southern California condominium, supports an adult son who is also unemployed and who sees an expensive specialist to help overcome his addiction to expensive opiates, Iris sure eats out a lot. If Mary doesn't bring over a casserole soon, she's going to have to hawk her iPhone.
