Mary Worth 152

Before today's powerful installment, I just want to say how much I've enjoyed reader comments. There have been some very insightful observations of late. Except for the porno one. That was very un-Mary-Worth-like and has been removed. Now on to the thing that happened that changed Mary's life forever.

Mary obviously feels a tremendous amount of shame when she realizes Cathy's family is worse off than her own, having to eat a pathetic meal of dry sliced bread, potato mash, and boiled grass with nothing but butter knives for utensils. The parents even sacrificed their own two glasses of water for the children's sake and settled for a tea cup half-full of hootch to numb away the pain. And all Mary has done for months is complain about her hunger.

This may well be the one and only time that anybody expressed thanks for Mary's presence.

Tomorrow we will be back in the present. Mary sitting on the bench in glassy-eyed reverie while Toby tries to quietly sneak away but before she can take more than a step, Mary fixes her with a steely gaze and growls "As I was saying, Toby, then something happened that changed my life forever and shaped who I am today. Why don't you sit back down and make yourself comfortable while I recap my childhood feelings of loneliness and low self-esteem. Again."

What no one realizes is that Mary is about to turn into a warewolf!
