Mary Worth 2196

I am thankful for today's classic dialog. The fact that Mary is in New York City for the sole purpose of spending time with Olive, and even living with her, makes today's Moyisms even more Moyish than usual. I love that they are actually already on a local outing when she asks. I am excited by the vagueness of the number of weekends Mary plans to stay, and the suggestion that Mary plans to spend every moment Olive is out of school on the town with her.

Just for fun, I ran Mary's sentence through Google Translate a few times and then back into English, and it came up with, "Olive, what should we do for fun while I'm visiting you?"

Two years ago, on Thanksgiving, Mary was also in New York City, enjoying her post-mugging lunch:

It reminds me that I never reported on my experience in our local community production of Footloose. I'll just say, it was a defining role for me, and truthfully, the time of my life. So glad I let my neighbor convince me to audition, even though I hadn't done anything like it for 18 years. Now I can't wait to do it again!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

"The last time I was in Central Park, I was mugged. Let's revisit it. But with you, Olive, and your SPECIAL GIFTS, I feel so much safer."

We all could use a little Mary in our lives. She helps us do our best and makes us feel better. And children are naturally drawn to her... or unnaturally.

I can certainly see why Olive invited Mary to come visit her: She always lets her order extra platitudes on her sundae.

Autumn is inviting, but I'm sure our guest will be staying until the spring.

"Speaking of local hot spots, we would love to take you and Olive out to A Local Hot Spot for dinner tonight. No wait, I meant Eddy and I are going to A Local Hot Spot, and would love to give you and Olive some alone time in our moneyed apartment. Get used to it, dear lady"

Oh, look, what's-her-name forgot what's-her-face's name. But that little kid remembers because she has a second tummy in her brain. Er, brain in her tummy.

Instead of a tip, Mary takes the cell phone away from our concrete cabby.

The taxi driver who indelicately comments on your friends' wealth always deserves a little extra in his tip.
