Mary Worth 313

Oh, oh, oh how I wish they'd written "At Mary's irging..." Then we would have come full circle. For now, I keep wanting to ask, "Are we there yet? Are we there yet?"

However, we're about to meet a new character, which is always exciting. She is clearly a security expert; she knows that when you answer the phone, you must demand to know who is calling you, because people never identify themselves when they call.

Today's Full Strip

Toby painted their bedroom black?? No, wait, in the next panel it's apricot. I could colour in a line drawing better than that and I'm no artist!

I wonder what constitutes a "security expert." Maybe Ms. Bryson is the security guard at Santa Royale's Target. Surely she would know what to do to help poor Toby. She might insist on coming downstairs and rifling through Toby's purse.

The way Toby's eyes just drift back and forth on her face from one strip to another is really freaking me out.

Caroline: Each day, a lucky sixth grader gets to color the strip for the newspapers. Today's strip was colored in by twelve-year-old Cynthia Browder of Mason Falls, Idaho. Congratulations, Cynthia!

Glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read that ... :)

I'm excited about this Bryson gal. My knee-jerk visual is of a rather stout, Brezhnev-era dressed, mono-browed, middle-aged sourpuss that already hates Toby because of her quavering timbre over the phone. Will there be humiliating tongue lashings at a cornered, fetal- positioned Toby? Will there be jack-booted "lessons" about online security? Will Ian appear on the scene and take off his shirt?

I thought this blog was supposed to be family-friendly? Because that was just sexy...
