Something's wrong here. Mary hasn't meddled yet. Dawn is only supposed to give up her addiction AFTER Mary tells her to. That's how this strip has always worked.And Dawn looks terrified of time with Daddy. Does she have no real-life friends to hang out with?Or has creepy Wilbur scared them all off?
Birdie - does it not count if Mary meddled indirectly, by giving advice to Wilbur? Anything to get this storyline OVER with. WE WANT JILL. WE WANT JILL.
Wilbur, you are truly wise. You know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So dig in and have another dozen eggs and a side of hog! You know you're eating for two - now that Dawn subsists on a meager diet of tweadler and facespace.
But...but...is this IT? After all that boredom we put up with, it's just this simple?? Dawn saying 'Okay...sure' to Wilbur's request to quality time? I agree, birdie, we can't be done here.
Are there no authorities we can alert? This ain't right.
Will someone please tell me where Moy is going with this? I can usually tell what stupid plot-point is coming up, but this one has me confused. Confused and bored.I have never been this bored by a Mary Worth story line. This is the pits. Someone yesterday or Sunday wrote that maybe Moy hates her job so much that she's trying to get her most ardent fans to quit reading the strip.By the way, Wanders, it might be fun to do a blind survey of your posters as to age, gender, place of residence, etc.
Here is one proposed development of the "storyline": Wilbur and Dawn head to the Bum Boat (or Restaurant - I hear they have an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet. Yum!), where, instead of inhaling food, Dawn will PUBLICLY EMBARRASS Wilbur by fiddling with one of her electronic devices and refuse to "be present," so to speak. From there it could really go in any direction. For example, Mary could just happen to have lunch at the same place, commencing to meddle on the fly. Or Snooty McWaiter could drop a sarcastic remark, denting Dawn's already fragile mental state (requiring more meddling). Or maybe an intervention has already been planned (WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE!) and we'll be treated to the most sensational surprise in MW history.One thing I know: whatever is coming up cannot possibly be boring. Well, not any more boring than what we've seen lately. Sigh, the bar IS set pretty low!
A curtained window, upper cabinetry, a cereal box, and (most mysteriously) a knife appeared out of nowhere in panel 2. This must be a lesson on how one's reality can change depending on one's perspective.
There is only one explanation. They are living in the Matrix.
@phoebes: Fear not! The traditional story line transition has just been set up:The "live time" will of course be a Charterstone pool party. It will be prefaced by Mary and Toby having coffee, and talking about the nice new young male character who moved into the transient character condo. It will segue to Dawn "Live interaction is not for me" Weston going to the "pool" party with Wilbur "Ham Sandwiches are for me" Weston. While there, Mary "Portable Reading Devices are not for me" Worth will introduce Dawn to the new outdoorsy character who will save Dawn's soul (and us from this plotline) by setting up an outdoor activity date (i.e. not an internet cafe visit). In the background we will of course see the Professor sporting short shorts, Dr. Jeff reading his Kindle, and the one resident who actually uses the pool with an oversized multi-colored beach ball in her hands.Should be wrapped up by the Fall.
Dave in Parma, well, that sounds like it could be a good plot line.But the transient guy HAS to have a name like "John Jones" or " David Smith" or "Joseph Anderson". No one remotely ethnic in the Worthiverse.
Is Dawn dressed for the day in a tank top, or is this like the third pair of pajamas she's had on in twelve hours? (For modesty's sake, I want to tell her to "cover up a bit" or at least wear a robe!)I do hope Dave in Parma is correct about an eligible, young man for Dawn to say "well, HELLO!" to at the next Charterstone Pool Party. However, I fear Wilbur's great idea for "Quality Time" this weekend will be going fishing or riding smallish horses. Both are activities Dawn can do one-handed while she tweets with the other. With any luck, though, she'll drop her phone in the lake or the tiny horse will step on it! Addiction quickly CURED, just like Jill's drinking problem! Then onto the next dull story.
@Shmoopie - a Dawn meltdown at RESTAURANT would be awesome! Waiter McSnooty has barely recovered from the last little uh, "incident" there. I hear he's a bundle of nerves whenever that Charterstone/Mountview crowd shows up!
What if the Bum Boat has no free wi-fi? What if Dawn can't get any service on her cell? What if Wilbur has the wrong date, and can't get in on that All You Can Eat Scallopalooza?
WHO FOLLOWS DAWN'S TWEETS????
i think the story will wrap up quick wilber will just take dawn for a walk in the woods like kurt. happy faces next story ted convey out of jail !!!!!!
What the heck is going on behind closed doors at the Charterstone? First the creepy pix of daddy and daughter, now Dawn looks like a battered woman. Someone call the police.
I know how excited we all are to find out what activity Wilbur has planned for the weekend, but I simply must jump in and do a little tiny meddle: Wilbur, you oblivious clod, your daughter doesn't need live action right now. She needs SLEEP! She looks like death warmed over. Now stick her outside in a chaise lounge and watch her take a nap.
If I had to do something with Wilbur over the weekend, I would have the exact same expression, addiction or not. She probably said "sure" because if she doesn't, he will keep asking until she completely loses her mind.
@Vicki---the horses aren't small. They only look that way next to Wilbur.
I wonder who will wear the tiny women's shoes when Dawn and Wilbur go fishing off of "you're not my son" pier.
Oh tuffenuf, well put! I think it might be Wilbur's turn to wear them... And here are those tiny women's shoes again, for those of us who missed them:http://tinyurl.com/69mpy85I do wonder how Giella feels, being forced to draw tubby Wilbur and his comb-over day after day after day. I bet he misses Jill Black and her stylish boots (and matching purse) as much as I do.
My guess is that they are going horseback riding.
