Mary Worth 511

Another great cliff hanger. How will I hold on until tomorrow? How could Delilah have possibly brought something that could make this visit even more wonderful? I mean, what could be better than spending time with a prima donna so unhappy in her marriage that she seeks shelter and escape in the home of her parents' old neighbor? Granted, Mary Worth was like a mother to her when her own mother was wholly inadequate. And now, she can be like a husband when Delilah's husband is wholly inadequate.

I'm betting $10 that the gift is some sort of a book. Because that would be a really clever gift and make this story even more fascinating.

I'm hoping she'll pull Lawrence's severed head from the suitcase...then all to bed!

They are in the bedroom so shouldn't it be a horse's head?

Delilah came to Mary's a week or so ago, but she is just now unpacking? I guess that shows how slow the story is going.
I think the gift is probably a book on home decor. It probably has tips on how to spotlight your favorite EKG strips or how to properly display your fudgestipe pillows. lol

A documentary and two tickets to Scotland! (For Delilah and Mary, of course.)

Since Delilah has Ted Confey's suitcase, I'm betting she's actually Ted's sister (or wife), and the "present" is $50K in Monopoly money, a gift certificate to CostCutters for Adrian, or a bomb that will take out the entire town.

You know she is going to bust out with a hand crocheted toilet paper roll coverlet. Something snazzy maybe in orange, flesh tone and brown.

A bound copy of Lawrence's famous lectures, or a framed photo of Delilah in happier times as a child prodigy.

or maybe a gift certificate to the Bum Boat!

Mary looks poised to smoke a cigarette! Perhaps she was a smoker "back in the day" and Delilah thoughtfully remembers this, and picked her up a carton of Marlboro Reds.

Being that cigs are so expensive nowadays, Mary should be quite appreciative. (I mean, who knows-- maybe she still sneaks smokes when we readers aren't looking, lol!?)

I agree, it's probably a book, but I'll up the ante another five bucks to say that it's probably a book Delilah has written and is arguing with Lawrence about publishing it. Maybe a music book or score, as I get the impression that the "prodigy" is musical.

And speaking of home decor, how does the bedroom decor magically change from panel to panel?

My guess: two tiny glass swans, symbolizing their intimate mother-daughter relationship. Ah, I guess that wouldn't be swans though. The symbolism of two tiny glass... bears?

How do you solve a problem like De-li-lah?!
How do you fix a boring prodigy?
How do you find a word that means Del-li-lah?
A prodigydimwit! Casserole muncher! So twee!

The gift must be...patio furniture!

Didn't Delilah tell Mary that she avoids confrontational conversations? She's not avoiding confrontation today, I'll tell ya.
