Mary Worth 775

Oh, if we could only read Jenna's thoughts. If only there were some sort of comic strip literary convention that would allow us such a privilege. Perhaps some kind of "thought balloon" in which we are able to read what she is thinking. It might read something like this:

"She knows. But who could have told her about the my deep rooted psychological issues with agoraphobia? Thanks to the help of an outside professional, I've been able to venture out of my home for the first time in years. But now, I'm not sure it was such a good idea. I certainly hope Doctor Roberts didn't tell her about me!"

You know, the idea of "professional discretion" does not seem to exist to anybody in Santa Royale. I sure hope that if I lived at Charterstone - and believe me they wouldn't let me in with my last name - and I consulted with a medical/financial/psychiatric professional, said "professional" wouldn't be blabbing MY problems or diagnoses all over town, simply for an entertainment value.

Mary reminds me of this annoying woman i knew who,if she asked how you were doing and you gave her a quick, no-brainer "okay" she'd follow up with "JUST ok?" grrr... it was sooo aggravating! Avoided her like the plague I did!

Oh, I think Jenna is just using her hand to test if her own breath is bad.

I'm certain if anything was wrong, say with her love life for instance...("love isn't for everyone")we'd at LEAST see a thought bubble with an exclamation mark in it.

Oh goody, do you see the Camerons have arrived!?

I think Jenna is eating her hand because she doesn't have a napkin handy. If she asked nicely, I'm sure Mary would get her one from the buffet table.

...or pull one off her own chin and give it to Jenna.

Perhaps Jenna's shyness/loneliness/agoraphobia stems from the fact that she is so much larger than everyone around her, plus she has a really big head (which I think she's trying to de-emphasize by wearing a demure ponytail.) But now she's been cornered by Mary Worth HERSELF, and there's nothing she can do but but blurt out all her fears and vulnerabilities!

Presumably, Mary's meddle-claws have punctured Jenna's thought balloons, and we'll have to wait till she can blow up some new ones if we want to know what she's thinking.

By the way, do the Camerons always talk only to each other at these gatherings?

Judging by the look on her face, Jenna just threw up a little in her mouth.

How does one de-emphasize a huge head? This has never been covered by Stacy and Clinton of TLC's What Not to Wear. (Chin napkins probably de-emphasize anything, but I think they're considered gauche after Labor Day.)
