Mary Worth 520

Charley Smith really is a clever lad. By complimenting Delilah's husband for being famous, he compliments Delilah, and at the same time shows he is not intimidated by her husband's fame. By asking if they are still together, he demonstrates good listening skills, acknowledging Delilah's recent revelation that she's spending the summer with Mary Worth. By asking for her number, he implies that he knows how to use a telephone. He's the total package.

Today's Full Strip.

Too bad Delilah isn't. She may be a child prodigy, but she doesn't have a neck.

The most pressing question to me is: Where was Delilah keeping that notepad and pen?

Toots McGee said...

Oh, wait. I guess Charley produced the notepad and pen and handed it to Del. The true Charterstone cad is always ready to collect digits (but not quite hep enough to have a cell phone.)

And pray, when does Mary start flicking Holy Water at him in an attempt to drive him away?

I like this guy!

Chester the Dog (again) said...

I may have changed my mind about Charley. "Let's catch up properly." Is that slang for some "unCharterstone" activity?

At any rate, I see them "catching up properly" at the Bum Boat, which must be fine cuisine for a guy like Charley. The Golden Corridor would NOT let him in the door!

Who's in charge of keeping the Chartstone hayfield mowed? Someones falling down on the job....and speaking of Jobs, what's Charlie doing wandering around in the middle of the morning?

Is he busy keeping Mary and Delilah occupied whilst his crony robs the Worth condo?

Oh the twists and turns ahead....

...and with "You look as beautiful as the last time I saw you," Charley points out that he does, in fact, have functional vision.

He really IS the total package.

Charley doesn't have the Snidley Whiplash mustache so he must be a good guy.

Vicki said...

Oh, dear. Well...if the inevitable happens, maybe Delilah will name the baby after you, Mary, if it's a girl

Robert said...

Mary is trying desperately to get her point across without resorting to chilly putdowns, and is banking on Charley noticing her giving him the finger!

Just over a month ago, Delilah appeared beautiful, poised, and mature, standing there among her stylish patio furniture.

This week, she's some kind of teeny-bopper. What's she been drinking over there at Mary's place?

Delilah just may fall for Charlie. He's paying attention to her and giving her compliments AND he is present. All the things that she is missing from Lawrence.
Maybe he works at night,or he could be the pool guy.

Caroline said...

Toots I had the same question about the notepad and pen! Delilah hasn't got room for so much as a handkerchief in that outfit. I don't see any pockets in Charley's dress either.

Chester the Dog said...

Caroline...D's ample bosom could hold a variety of office supplies! Tissues, pens, paper, R&H cd's.

Regarding the skimpy halter top, well, given the size of Marys dresser drawers, thats about all she could unpack.

PS if anyone is in NYC on July 29th and 30th, feel free to attend a free reading of my one acts.

Mary cannot handle Holy water, for obvious reasons.

Mary is touching her face as part of some Black Magic ritual. It appears her Dark Arts spell to make Chuckles disappear has failed, however; she has instead made the entirety of the world beyond that gate thingy evaporate instead. Well, other than that tree, beneath which she keeps the source of her power: the buried remains of the real Mary Worth.

Chester, I checked out the link for your show. I thought it would be some kind of Ed Sullivan thing with dog acts. lmao.
Anyway, it does look interesting.
