my name is toby im kinda cute but why am i hanging with this old coot. its because im such a bore i talk to anyone under 60 they start to snore.
It astounds me that Moy manages to make every story more boring than the last.So, fellow readers, what do you think the next, more boring story will be? Mary visits the podiatrist? Dawn runs out of tape while wrapping Christmas gifts? I can hardly stay awake with anticipation.
Well, I certainly didn't dodge a bullet when I got sucked into this mind-numbing black hole of a story.At least we can amuse ourselves by the observing the wild decor of Giella's phantasms! For example, have you noticed that all food in Santa Royale, by law, must be beige?
While Mary and Toby were "deep in conversation," someone snuck in and stole her computer. So much for vigilance.
Not only was the cake stolen, so was the computer, the computer table, and a whole bunch of books (including the bookshelves).
Meanwhile, things are heating up at Apt 3-G. THAT comic knows how to keep things going.
Picking up on the suggestion of Mary@8:42 AM, the next story will be Professor Chinbeard wondering what happened to his wife. At least he thinks he has a wife....
With all the PSAs that Mary Worth has been doing lately, I just hope the next story isn't about Wilbur & Ian going in for their annual prostate exams.
I think the cake and the furniture ran away to avoid dying of boredom.So what, they took a break to have Thanksgiving dinner and are now back lamenting the ID theft? Or maybe that dinner was just a big ol' cardboard cutout. Those hockey pucks or whatever they were on Mary's tray certainly looked like cardboard, and the other people at the dinner are about as exciting as cardboard. Except Mary, and her aura, of course.--Beagle Vet
@kathyo - Now maybe someone will steal OUR computers so that we won't be forced to carry on with this story. Folks, put down your smart phones and back away, slowly......
Mary @8:32 asked:So, fellow readers, what do you think the next, more boring story will be? Mary visits the podiatrist? Dawn runs out of tape while wrapping Christmas gifts? I can hardly stay awake with anticipation.No, I think the next story will be something more like Mary talking about going to the podiatrist, and all the things you have to do to prepare for the visit, and how it's always a good idea to wear clean socks, and the best way to clean your socks...
I hope Mary ends up talking on the phone to the phone company about improving phone services. And Toby can watch. Nothing more exciting that Mary on the phone. And each day the furniture can rearrange itself.
Mary's shrug has to be the best expression I've ever seen. The next time anyone asks me a question and I don't know the answer, I'll clench a teacup in one hand and throw my hands up in the air.Meanwhile, I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving and remained vigilant so they didn't become victims of identity theft.
Now if someone, anyone, would steal Moy's outline for the next story.
Why is Toby drinking from the creamer? (Is it because kids today have no manners?)And, in other news of the weird, the portrait on Mary's sideboard has once again morphed, this time into a werewolf. Previously it was an Amish farmer, Chaz Bono, and most recently, Dr. Jeff or Mitt Romney.
Catching up on the past 2 days - Mr. Wanders, it's very tempting to ask you to add "Material Girl" to the playlist, but.... who could imagine Madonna's music at a Charterstone pool party? Not I.
Now wait a minute...My dad was a podiatrist. He kept a real nice aquarium in his office, so...hey, THAT was pretty exciting right there, LoL! Well, I don't think Mary's rage has subsided one bit, judging by her expression. Serving that hardtack with Thanksgiving dinner was just ONE aspect of her passive/aggressive personality. I mean who DOES that!?
I didn't think there was anything more boring than Gina and Bobby's date...this storyline proves me wrong.
This is a trick, isn't it? Moy and Giella hatched a plot to make us all die of boredom so we could never snark at them again.
Sunday panel 3: Is Toby vomiting over the back of Mary's couch?
Mary at 915a- Toby vomiting is a definite possiblity, considering what was probably in her cup. Please notice the baby squid climbing out of Mary's cup in the last panel. Yeccchh! But, OMG, could Toby be preggers?
It sure does look like Toby is emptying the contents of her stomach on Mary's carpet in Sunday's Panel Three, probably in reaction to the dialogue Moy has shoved down her gullet. But I must say she recovers nicely and looks positively fetching by the last panel. And Mary seems giddy throughout the whole thing, even when her calamari in a cup begins to stir.
Mary, Meg and Speedy,I think Toby is looking out the window, checking for prowlers. Remember at the restaurant, Toby was saying she had become SUPER-vigilant about security. (Which turned out to be "famous last words.") Now she has assured Mary that she is going to be EVEN MORE careful. My conclusion: she wants to become the Charterstone night watchman.
In an attempt to make Sunday's strip a bit more interesting, here is my assessment of what happened...PANEL 1: [One commandment down, nine to go...] Mary has once again done a quick change of her outfit, from the rose blazer, black top and pearls from last week, to a simple blouse today. Perhaps she changes while in another room, which, based on the window configuration, is clearly not the same room as her living room in panel 3.PANEL 2: An ominous figure looms behind Mary, right outside the window while an oblivious Mary smiles and finished another of her platitudes.PANEL 3: Toby turns to look at the figure behind Mary (which has since vanished), her coffee cup teetering precariously on her saucer, and [sigh] once again reminds Mary to check her future credit card statements.PANEL 4: Mary's reference to her purse brings a broad smile to Toby's face.PANEL 5: Toby shows off her high cheekbone, as a mysterious piece of artwork appears on the now blackened window behind her.PANEL 6: Mary and Toby face each other and display their excessively thick eyelashes in silhouette. Toby attempts to poke Mary in the eye.PANEL 7: A previously unseen picture has repositioned itself next to the lamp as Toby stares, transfixed by the squid attempting to escape from Mary’s coffee cup. A new throw pillow has materialized behind Mary.
Mike and Thorpnotized -- Thank you both for the explanations, I think I am starting to get it. Toby could probably use the night watchman job to pick up a few extra bucks since her career as an artist, like the young Van Gogh, does not seem to be taking off just yet. And it never occurred to me that Toby was trying the old Moe Howard finger-in-the-eye move with Mary. We can learn so much from comic strips.
All I learned from todays strip..Mary uses Lemon Pledge on her coffee table, look at the shine!
Oh, PS that is the real Chester in my photo. Taken right by the UN
