"Yes, Wilbur, I haven't seen Dawn for 24 entire hours - why do you let her traipse through the interweb like that??? What kind of parent are you?" And what kind of parent would be seen in public with that shirt?
OMG! I think Wanders (through cunning use of technology and electronic gizmos, no doubt) performed some kind of mind meld with me! My first thought this morning was, "Just how old is Dawn anyway?" a topic addressed in today's secret message. Then I noticed Wilbur's shirt and thought, "Ugh, amoebas again!" Well, like I said, I THOUGHT that I had these thoughts, but I'm not sure anymore. My word verification: subcha. Someone is SUBTLY CHANNELING me. Need I say more?
Shmoopie's scaring me.
Shmoopie, either great minds think alike, or we both went for the obvious joke. And the secret message is part of our newest Jukebox song.
Hahahaha! No, I don't claim to have a great mind. Would I be reading the comics before world events every single day if that were so? Nope, I'm kind of like Captain Obvious! Plus, amoebas do creep me out, so I notice them whenever the populate a shirt or dress.
I just had a hunch Mary and Wilbur would be bonding over this technology debate! And sure enough...If this festering issue doesn't get resolved soon, things could get real UGLY at the next Charterstone pool party! It would be sooo unfortunate if say, a fight broke out and a kindle or a "smart" phone were to get "accidentally" thrown into the pool, tee hee...

You know, I can't make up my mind whether to just stop reading MW until this ridiculous plot line is over. Will one of you notify me we've lurched on to another plot line? If not, I guess I have to stay awake and check here every day.
anon@1:00pm, would a Luddite have a website? just wonderin'
This is what these people have to worry about?This isn't a plot line; it's not even a crooked plot segment, no matter how cutting edge Moy thinks it is.
Mary still has to learn how to carry her "eco-friendly" shopping bag. Use the handles, Mary, thats what they're for.
Djangosmom 2:49 pm.....That was the joke :)
My problem with Wilbur's euglena camouflage muumuu is that a few strands of his chest hair are visible. Perhaps the public outcry will prompt him to go home to change into a turtleneck before continuing his riveting conversation with Mary.
This story could only get better if the long-lost Toby and Ian offer their opinions of "e-readers" and the Twitter.
@ Chester -unless...ewwww, maybe Mary KNOWS where those cloth handles have been and doesn't want to touch them!I read about a study in which it's been learned people rarely, if EVER, wash those cloth bags! They store them in places like dirty car trunks, utility rooms, maybe next to their cats' litter box, etc... Turns out the plastic grocery store bags are MUCH more sanitary and "friendly" than the "eco" bags!
Speaking of handles, where are the handles/straps to Mary's purse---or is she carrying an expandable accordion file under her arm?
And there it is, Dawn's dirty secret revealed to Mary. Let the meddling begin.
Yeah, yeah. Dawn's "hooked" on being online like Robert Palmer was "addicted" to love. Although, I suppose Mary probably wouldn't approve of that, either.
Amoeba? Naaa. When I saw Wilbur "ham sandwich on white" Weston's new shirt, I immediately knew that it was covered in a pork chop pattern.Mmmmm. Pork Chops....
I think this will wind up being one of those short segways to another story -- like Bonnie's shopping habit being used to jump to the Mike/Jenna story.
Mary does a good job of masking her vigilance with neighborly concern. "Tell me Wilbur, EXACTLY What is Dawn doing online?" Mobilizing her social network? Is she relying on another community for social support and assistance? I'm afraid it's worse than addiction; it sounds like Liberation by Internet.
What is Dawn doing ONLINE?She is NOT..Looking for her own apartment,Completing her studies,Talking to her friends.She IS...Reading about smallish horses,Looking at pictures of the Clark Resort in Florida,Buying garage door openers on Ebay.
Mary, duh! Dawn hasn't agreed to "friend" Wilbur on either the Tweeter -Or- the Faceplace, so how could he possibly know what she's doing online??? Personally, I think Dawn's googling "nursing homes + Santa Royale"
I'm with phoebes. This plot is so mind-numbingly dull that it puts to shame every other time I've complained about mind-numbing dullness. Why would any sane person choose to develop this story vs. the juicy one that was left dangling about (cmon, say it with me) JILL?? Oh Jill, we hardly knew ye....
(Tuesday) Talk about someone's mind not being present...WHEN is Wilbur going to offer to carry Mary's sack of groceries?
