Mary Worth 945

I know this will be hard for you Wilbur, but Dawn is like 27, and even though she's still freeloading at home while she drifts through her education at Local University, you've got to give her some space to interact with her Internet friends. Otherwise, she's never going to find a boyfriend.

Haha; that's very true, Wanders! :P

I know what the problem is, Wilbur. You forgot to say the blessing of the holy cornbread-muffin-thingies dinner. That might have kept Dawn sitting at the sacred dinner table!

Shmoopie said...

Yes, Wilbur, I agree. The dinner hour is sacred. And these newfangled electronic devices must be the work of, ooh, I don't know - - - could it be SATAN?

This is being said by Wilbur? The same Wilbur who abandoned his daughter to spend week after week skipping about fwith a lad who wears ladies shoes and plain white tees? A lad who also temporarily abandoned his OWN family?...

Go Dawn, GO! And lock the door!!!

Wilbur is so upset that he and his dinner table are spinning in place.

...Oh, and how did he get the blue milk from Tatooine?

Maude Findlay said...

Ooh, I wonder if, now that Wilbur and Dawn are back in the picture, maybe we'll get an update about Kurt? Is he still living in his dank hovel, with the cracked walls and broken windows? Did his long suffering wife finally have her baby, and did they name it Wilbur...or maybe Wilberina?

Oh Wilber, there's nothing sacred about gluttony. Be thankful Dawn has the good sense to be look up the Heimlich maneuver while you shovel another pile of "sacredness" into your pie hole.

Vicki said...

I think we can all agree--Iris is NEVER coming back! That "caring for the sick relative" excuse was just her way of leaving Wilbur and his lousy cooking and his lousy daughter for good. And who can blame her, really?

There is nothing sacred about shovong ham and white bread sandwiches down your throat. And, I seem to remember that Wilbur was on FACEBOOK 24/7 not too long ago. Eat your words, Wilbur (and another sandwich)

Actually Wilbur, Dawn is just walking around staring at a deck of cards. It's not a school project, it's not her own "stuff', she's just ignoring you.

Sorry to let you down so hard, (it's not me, it's you), but it may be time to search around the pool party for another potential long lost sibling to spend time with. Perhaps one that doesn't run off after he gets to know you.

Dave in Parma said...

....and if not up for that potential rejection (re-rejection?), there's always ham sandwiches.


mmmmmmmm.......hammmmmmmmm.

"Dawn, we never talk anymore," Wilbur said while gesticulating with his tiny spoon. Am I the only one who finds this a little creepy? It feels a bit inappropriate - the kind of thing you'd say to a spouse, not a daughter... I have to admit that my heart sank when this story veered off into this household, instead of Jill's. That's a much more interesting story waiting to be told. Meet you back here in 2013, maybe we'll hear it.

Actually, Dawn is still pissed over Wilbur's devotion to Kurt. Even so, is it really necessary for her to challenge the sanctity of the dinner hour? For Wilbur and his waistline, I am certain it is the most important hour of the day.

If Wilbur wanted someone to talk to, he shouldn't have sent his pseudo-son packing.

Amanda Kate said...

Wow. Wanders' description of Dawn sounds exactly like me, right down to the internet friends, age, college education and lack of boyfriend. Spooky. I even eat dinner in my room!

wilber dont be such a baby dawn is even a dimmer bulb then you what would you talk about white bread vs wheat bread

Imogene said...

Oh, Jill...I was so sorry to have seen you shrunken and humbled. You would have been a wonderful story and just the spice Santa Royale needs!

I am now going to take a 3-month supply of food (mainly wafers and wine) and a lot of reading material (the old-fashioned kind with pages that can be turned and touched) to my room. Call me when those awful Westons are gone.

It all started with Facebook, now Dawn is hooked on the Farmville, MafiaWars, Bejeweled Blitz, Fishville........
