I knew it! It took 3 weeks to tell Mary about Bobby, but only three days to find him on the interwebs. "Wow, computers is fast."And now all the people in the coffee shop have been alerted. They've never before beheld an outburst in this place. They all want to know what's going on.Another three weeks of explanations and congratulations??
Encouraged by Gina's luck of finding Bobby Black so fast, I will begin a quest of my own today. I vow to find my preschool friend Jane Smith, whom I have last seen at age 5. How hard could it be?
Alas, the hand of fate has cruelly hidden my old flames from intertube access; I know, I tried to find them!I surmise that they are either dead, in rehab, or locked in their respective basements by their destructive husbands.Anything but soccer players.
This is completely ridonkulous, but if finding Bobby on the first Google search means that this storyline will be ending a little more quickly, GO NY BLAZERS!!!
Unfortunately for Gina, the write-up calling Bobby 'most eligible' is in Men's Fitness Quarterly magazine...The promising development on her finding Bobby so quickly, is that this plotline may end more quickly.
Yesterday, Gina was seated right next to the window. In today's strip she has hopped to another table. She must be a lousy waitress if she has that much trouble keeping track of the right table.
The man in the green shirt looks horrified. Could it be that he was hoping to meet Gina? Or to finally have her out of that seat she's been occupying all week long. I wonder if those other patrons of Coffee can see Gina's excitement lines radiating from her head.
Yes, the whole world revolves around Gina and her long-lost love.Everybody in COFFEE is about to join hands and sing for joy. Well, everybody except for the one grumpy guy who's probably mad because he only got a tiny square table instead of the standard round one.He's also probably been taking advantage of COFFEE's unsecured network to hack into Gina's computer. I do hope he isn't connected with the mob.That's a lie. I hope he is connected with the mob, because then we'll see some real action here. Moy might be teaching us a hard lesson on internet security.
good grief. not only is Bobby alive - he is a hot shot soccer player AND one of NY's most eligible bachelors. gross city. Who wants to bet that we learn that Bobby is still single because he never forgot Gina either...
"It's Bobby! And his ball is inflated!"
Liz@8.53a - I bet you're right and the article will say that and Gina will contact him, say she's alive and, and, and...this lame story will finally be over.
Gina did her search without a single ad popping up. COFFEE must have a very secure network. And Bobby looks like he is posing for Mens Fitness magazine. See ya in the Village, Bobby!
Good grief. How many days (weeks?) will go by until these blue-haired dolts reunite? "Oh Gina, Gina, I've been searching for you for ten years! Along with a way to dunk a soccer ball..."
Bobbys Basketball is in the witness protection program too.Actually Major league soccer is a great place to hide someone, maybe Gina can be a Blazers cheerleader.
And somewhere across town, Dr. Drew Cory is thumbing through that very same Men's Fitness Quarterly, looking at that exact same photo! Two worlds are about to collide... not that there's anything wrong with it.
Steven W. - great idea! She's already got the hairdo for it!
Yep, makes perfect sense to me that, given Gina's years long obsession with Bobby, she never once googled him until Mary encouraged her to do so. But, then again, there is no reason why we should expect the characters to be smarter than their author.
Doesn't he know that in soccer, you aren't allowed to use your hands!!!!!I just love the commotion that she caused. People are throwing their coffees all over the place. It's gonna be a riot!And Maude - God'll get you for that! :)
Maybe we'll see Gina sending an email to Bobby, then a "two weeks later" box will show happily reunited in the Big Apple. Perhaps we'll see dining in an establishment called PIZZA. And then we can move on to the next tedious story.
...and somehow I managed to forget to type the word "them" twice in my last post! Obviously I'm trying to get these two drips out of my mind.
You typed it, Mary. But the word "them" without quotation marks is in the witness protection program and had to be hidden.
Mary...can we only imagine what the next storyline is about??? Personally, I want to know if Toby learned her lesson about internet scams. Did Jill finally get off the sauce? Will Dr. Drew ever find his true love? Confused? You will be in the next storyline of "Worth"!
Per James in North Dakota's suggestion:Did Adrian and Scott ever return from their staycation/honeymoon?Will they ever use the gift certificate that Jill gave them for the resort in Bora Bora?
I just looked at todays second panel. Boy, those background people sure want to know "Who is him?" "Him is whom?"
I still find it hard to believe that a 23-24 year old in this day & age never once tried to google Bobby, especially since she was still so hung up on him. I confess, I've googled people that I used to date, work with, go to school with, friends, ''enemies'', relatives I haven't seen in years, etc. It's ridiculous that an elderly Luddite has to tell this girl how to find an old boyfriend.
Isn't the coffee at Coffee any good? Gina had coffee at Diner but is having water at Coffee.
@Jollz: Gina, what a mooch, taking up valuable space at COFFEE, drinking only tap water, she refills in the rest room.
Chester - LOL. Of course she fills it up in the bathroom. She can't afford to buy coffee, what with the tips that she doesn't get at work!This storyline would be more believable if it were the other way around, with Mary Worth languishing at the thought of a lost loved one, and Gina The Helpful Waitress giving her a little technological nudge in the right direction. But, as Maude Findlay pointed out, having a woman who is older than Eleanor Roosevelt giving a 24-year-old tips on searching the Interweb is just a bit odd.KitKat, I don't think they ever returned. Although, if you had the chance to stay in Bora Bora or return to Santa Royale, what would you do?
Poor Gina. Bobby grew up into a mouth breather.
