Mary Worth 116


Drew, seeing her everywhere probably isn't as crazy as hearing her voice, especially if she starts telling you to do things like, "Jump. Jump off the cliff." Of course, that would be one way to make the hallucinations go away. If it is a cliff. It looks more like a sloping incline overlooking a miniature city or an electric train model. Jump, and you may smash one of those cardboard buildings.

I love that Drew and Vera continue to equate their alleged relationship to seeing the stars. Over and over again. Something to do with "their song," I suppose: 'Waiting for a Star to Fall' as featured in Three Men and A Little Lady and Look Who's Talking Too (and which you can listen to on the Charterstone Jukebox to the right). Of course, the worst love song ever, all about never being able to win the girl's love. Self-fulfilling prophecy I guess.

I'd criticize Drew's anguish, but the reality is I've been there; done that. Sat on the cliff. Gazed at the stars. Walked the halls at night. But in the end, I still didn't get the girl - let's call her 'Vera.' So, a complete waste of time. Fortunately, though, eventually I met my wife and things worked out far better than they ever could have if my pining away had been productive or if my wife and I were merely characters in some soap opera comic strip.

And the good news? My 'Vera' hallucinations have almost stopped.

This is truly the most beautiful and tragic love story OF ALL TIME! ALL TIME! West Side Story? Shakespeare? Barry Manilow? Pfft! Move over. Mary's in town (or somewhere).

Maybe Mary will "happen by" to give Drew some much needed advice and...naw...looks like he just jumped.
