To quote Charlie Brown: AAAAUUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHH!
Mary is as changeless as the current plot! But I almost expect her to rip off her rubber mask and eat Toby's brain.
Please, lady, stop talking ABOUT the story, and just TELL it! My head will implode if this prologue goes on for another day. Yesterday I was joking about how quickly Drew went off to Vietnam, but in all seriousness, Drew decided to go to Vietnam on February 26 and his plane left the ground on March 2 - six days! We're on day five of Mary leading up to this flashback and I'm really going to be disappointed if I have to wake up ONE MORE MORNING to find Mary still talking about the story she is presumably about to tell!
