Mary Worth 849

Oh, I don't know, Jenna... I once knew a woman who said love wasn't for her, but then she met Dr. Mike Roberts and when he didn't call her after one date, she drank herself into near oblivion. So, yes, attitudes can change quickly. Irrationally so.

I had to look three times before I realized that the unicorn flying by in Sunday's panel 2 was really a seagull.

(And I swear, my word verification for this comment is satan).

Whoa. Now I'm thinking that pinhead Dr. Mikey should run, too. Jenna's mood/facial expression/thoughts bounce around from "I don't believe this for a minute" to a vacant, giddy (dare I say buzzy?) stare to signify True Lurve, back to disbelief with Mikey. These people shouldn't be allowed to walk around in public.

Well, unless they were tracking down killers.

I'll bet Giella's couple, Gomer and Gidget (in panel 3) are on their second date too, which means that they'll be discussing things like favorite movies, a love for sushi, and eye color.

Moy's couple is discussing abandonment, alcoholism, and his promise to change. Moy's relationship is more flimsy than Giella's weathered wood railing.

Goodness sakes, if my husband had dumped all this baggage on me on our second date, I'd have headed for the exits!
(And speaking of "dumping" those kids had better keep a sharp eye on the seagulls, if ya' know what I mean!)

Come on, Giella. When you're drawing someone with a ponytail head on from the front, the ponytail DOESN'T SHOW.

"Could it be changed is such a short time?'

In a word, idiot, "NO!"

Not living in Santa Royale, I am not conversant with the fashion mores there(I lie. I know from orange suits, at least.), but I do not know a single adult woman who wears a ponytail. Maybe coming up from the beach after a swim, but not as a hairstyle. Will Dr. Morphing Mike still love Jenna when her hair falls out from being pulled into a tight ponytail since infancy, or will he go on a vigilante rampage to unmask and kill the inventor of scrunchies?

Doesn't SOMEONE have to get back to work? Dr Mike must have a patient waiting, and Jenna, oh, well forget it. It must be happy hour somewhere in Santa Royale.

Today Chester(me) hit the stores on Long Island. Target and Walmart (usually a shopping paradise for a NY City'er like me. Why doesn't the Walmart management take a lesson from Target and make it PLEASANT for shoppers to visit their stores? GRRR!

@duck... Gomer and Gidget, have not met Mary Worth!

Jenna has to be drawn with her ponytail flapping strangely to the side, because if she wasn't - well, have a look. Just picture her without it. Does that hairstyle remind you of anyone? That's right, it's a blue version of the Queen Meddler's patented Invisi-Bun Bouffant!
