So based on how long a typical MW story arc lasts, does this mean we are in for three months of "Mary's wallet gets stolen and Mary calls the credit card companies"?
C'mon Toby! Is that a face touch making its way to the scene? You can do it!
@Karen - there were at least eight companies on Mary's list yesterday. This is going to take a while. Wouldn't it be more fun to watch the 70's-dressed thieves running amok on a wild shopping spree?
Toby seems to be enjoying her invisible glass of wine!
Toby looks very troubled on Mary's behalf. Perhaps she will do a clown painting about it.
Perhaps I missed it, but did Mary report the theft to the police? When will Detective Scott Hewlett (who HAS to be back after honeymooning with Adrian) get on the case?I am bored by watching Mary talk on the phone, so I looked at the decor in her apartment. Is this supposed to be her living room? The first panel shows what appears to be a chest of drawers, and is that quilted round orange thing some kind of headboard? Who's the guy in the photo - Mary's late husband (really, really late!), or Dr. Jeff?
I for one am a little dismayed at Mary's sense of interior decorating. Granted the burnt orange furniture/pink draperies scheme is so underutilized these days, I may just not appreciate it for the daring color scheme that it represents.Or perhaps Mary needs to finally follow through on her ophthamologist's recommendation and just take care of those pesky cataracts once and for all.
Who says the comics are a waste of time? Mary is teaching us what to do if your wallet is stolen. This is important information for anyone who has been living in a cave or drain pipe for the last two decades and hasn't had access to a tv, radio, newspaper or the internet to learn about identity theft. Thank you, Mary Worth.
Anonymous@8:09 a.m.: That would be pretty funny, although if this were an actual animated cartoon, it would be even more outlandish. Remember in the old Scooby Doo cartoons where they are being chased by the monster, and everyone is running and out out of a door while music plays. That's what I'm envisioning. The thieves run into Target on one end of the street and come out at the Wal-Mart across the street, and then off to Macy's...er, Marcys.
KitKat - are you kidding? The way the Worthiverse is going, I think Scott and Adrian are just getting on the plane.
James, James. It's been so long you can barely remember. Adrian and Scott "went local" for their honeymoon. They turned down the tickets to Bora Bora, a generous gift from Drunk Jill, and drove to the other end of town.http://maryworthandme.blogspot.com/2011/01/mary-worth-937.html
Punky@10:41 a.m., thanks for refreshing our memories of Scott's car, which looks like a Batmobile wannabee. Maybe Scott and Adrian drove off that cliff but no one noticed, what with the Big Game vs. the Blazes and all.
Poor Mary! Her lampshade has a huge crack in it, and now that her wallet has been stolen, she'll never be able to afford to replace it.Maybe Toby can tile her a new one.--Beagle Vet
Oh man, I'm disappointed! Do you know how many strips they could have gotten out of Mary trying to call her credit card company!''Please enter your 12 digit account number, then press pound. Please enter the last 4 digits of your social security number, then press pound. Please enter your zip code, then press pound. If you are calling about a billing error, press 1. If you are calling about a change of address, press 2. If you would like to speak to a representative, press 3. All of our lines are busy at the moment, but your call is important to us. Please hold, and a representative will speak to you shortly.''Interject some easy listening music to listen to, while on hold. I'm thinking a nice, instrumental Muzak version of ''Cherish'' by The Association''All of our representatives are busy at the moment, but your call is important to us. Please hold...''
Toby must have popped more Percosets before they left The Lemon Wedge. She's so stoned her eyes are crossing.
Am so looking forward to the next plotline where Mary alternately calls her health care provider and Medicare provider to resolve billing claims.
Punky, could you blame me? I think when they got married, Theodore Roosevelt was in office.And I agree with Maude. It isn't that easy to get someone on the line. WV: "outing." Really? Bring on the Fitness Quarterly magazine jokes.
Are you kidding? With Mary's reputation, even the automated ansering systems bow in reverence.
James in North Dakota @ 12:52 PM, Mary was with Teddy at San Juan Hill.
