Mary Worth 836

Mary Worth's chilling claw sucks the very life's essence out of Dr. Roberts like a vacuum packed bag of chili mix and soon he's left quivering on the floor, ready to call Jenna for that second date.

"Mary's chilling claw" - love it. So glad this absurdly long tangent has finally been laid to rest, so to speak. In today's strip, I particularly like the typist without eyes: Must Type Unobtrusively To Merit Background Status in Famous Comic Strip. Can anyone (roughly) calculate how many days or weeks it's been, since Mike's first date with Jenna? I tried, but there were too many days lost to that park bench...

I wouldn't be surprised if Dr. Mike starts in with the shakes soon. Mary's life-stealing claw can mimic the effects of long-term alcoholism and unsuccessful vigilantism.

Punky- I think their first (And so far only!) date was on July 4th- Remember how they went for a walk to watch the fireworks?

Hey, Nicolas Cage. Glad you could guest as Dr. Mike today. Big fan.

In panel 2, Mary seems to be glaring at Dr. Mike, as if to say "What? You made peace with your dying father -- and I WASN'T THERE??? How dare you take a positive step in your life without my meddling? Never again shall you leave my watchful eye!"

@ Punky: That typist may not have eyes, but her lack of vision has sharpened her hearing to the point where she can hear Mary's claws ripping into Dr. Mike's shoulder flesh--and she can hear Mary mutter under her breath, "Now you're mine...all mine..."

Dr. Mike (or whoever that is!) had better "spill it" to Mary. An awful lot has happened b/t Mikey and Lonnie that Mary hasn't been privy to, and she is NOT AMUSED!

The Typist Girl With No Eyes is trying hard to appear "normal". She is busy doing googly searches for: Dr. Mike Roberts, M.D.+murderer, Lonnie Roberts+obituary, Mary Worth+ witch. felons+cosmetic+surgery. Well...you get the idea! She's NOT just typing up doctor's notes!

Anybody seen Lonnie? Anybody? He ain't been down to Shortie's bar in a few days and ol' Fred sez he done split! Sez he moved all his $--t out of the apartment! An' he owes me money, so dayum...call me if you seen 'im!!!

Dear Mary:

What's the proper period of mourning before a guy, say a doctor, can start dating a hot chick, like a financial planner?

So Over My Fear of Love

This story started with a Bonnie? and ended with a Lonnie!, and I only bring this up by way of explaining that one sign of insanity is incessant rhyming.

I also noticed The Typist Girl With No Eyes, who is tryng very hard not to listen in to this conversation. I think she may be a temp, trying very hard to look busy.
