Mary Worth 851

Get to know each other even better? That won't be hard since you don't know each other at all.

Let's see... what does Jenna know about Mike: Since his father died, he's free to love. Anything else? Um, he is especially fond of walking by the water... beyond that, I can't really come up with anything.

What does Mike know about Jenna? She likes walking through Santa Royale's varied landscapes...

Yep, I'd say the chances are good that Mike's dreams are going to come true. They will get to know each other EVEN BETTER!

Jenna's face says "maybe a piece of gum for your breath? "

Jared said...

That is definitely not a smoochy-face.
That is repulsion.

No, no, no. Not repulsion. She's just about to pass gas.

Can we at least hope that this is the end of this story arc? When was the last time we saw Mary & Jeff on a date, anyway?

Jack Daniels said...

Jenna, we need to sit down together and drink this over...I mean THINK this over! Come see me -- I'm here for you anytime.

Maude, I'm with you. I am so incredibly bored, bored, bored by this story line! I'd even be willing to endure Toby and Ian watching that collector's DVD of Sean Finnery's Scotland... On second thought, no. Because Ian might take off his shirt again. Please, Dr. Mike, for the love of God, at least leave your shirt on!

Goo! What an unattractive couple.

In this frame Jenna has a disturbing resemblance to a dark haired Mary.

Please don't let it be so.

They're aging right before our eyes. I'd swear she's fifty two.

Or a robot. Maybe a robot.

I'm not clear. Do they want to know each other better or not?

@Dave in Parma: At least we know Jenna has long hair (whatever length the pony tail happens to be on any given day) as opposed to Mary -- I'm still not sure if she has long hair, short hair, a bun, or just wears hair extensions when she's brushing her hair out at night.

I actually thought Moy was as sick of and bored by this story as all of us are, but apparently she's going for a record. Since none of these stories ever end mid-week, we can look forward to another three days of "I really want to get to know you better," with the grand summary coming up on Sunday.

And what do we really know about Jenna? Way back when this story began--circa 1999--Jeanna also remarked that "love was not for her" or some such nonsense. Are we in for her drawn out tale of what that comment was all about?

Meanwhile, the seagull battle rages on.

schmoopie@10.51a - Please, please, please, for the love of god, please, DO NOT even suggest that we need to know the "Jenna" side of "love not being for me".

This story line about these two bland people has gone on long enough.

The rocks in panel one (9/22) look like the giant hand of some really ticked-off monster who is sick to death of Mike and Jenna and is stealthily crawling over to grab them and fling them both into the raging sea, where the fighting seagulls will swoop down and peck their eyes out...

Isn't it painfully obvious? Until Mary started meddling they had they were self aware and had it right. LOVE WAS NOT FOR THEM!!!!! The thought of them procreating is soooo disturbing.
