Mary's platitudes are causing Jeff to morph back and forth from a young man to a wrinkled coot in a sweater vest. Forget the books behind the TV -- look at the TV itself. It's a flat screen! And probably HD! For a woman opposed to an electronic reading device, Mary has come a long way.Love your blog, Wanders.
Mary and Jeff should be sitting just a little bit closer to the TV so they can fully enjoy the widescreen display.
@Peggy Olson is right - Jeff appears to be time traveling. What happened to the gray hair at his temples? Maybe HE was the one ready to change, a la Grecian Formula? Seriously, Jeff, you need a bigger change than hair coloring. Watching a televangelist while Mary preaches is as mind-numbing as it gets - oy veh!
Doesn't look like Mary has vacuumed the carpet in a few months.
D-Dan got his epiphany/moment of clarity recently - don't ever trust anyone, women only marry you for your money, life is unfair, life sucks and then you die, etc.
Ha! One of today's verification words is my last name! How cool is that?! The other critiques today's couchside commentary... blearea.
Is Jeff pregnant?--Beagle Vet
This strip is giving me claustrophobia. Mary's apartment is getting narrower and narrower, it's like the walls are closing in on them. Also, does it freak anyone else out, that Jeff seemingly has two right legs, but only one foot?
A battery-operated flat screen, no less. Or, perhaps, solar and it's powered by Mary's eternally sunny disposition.
I think they are at Jeff's "man cave" house watching the Reverend on the 'ol flatscreen. (Mary wouldn't have use for such a nice tv, what with the three channels she can pull in with her converter box. "Who needs more?, says Mary?) Another clue they're at Jeff's-- I too noticed the rug seriously needs vacuumed, but for all her faults I can't see Mary NOT running the sweeper once in awhile! I mean, all those Kelk cookie crumbs would draw ants and roaches and such...
Jeff needs to quickly take a sip from Mary's glass labeled 'drink me'---either his head is shrinking or his torso is growing.
Jeff, move your right hip off Mary's lap; get used to the fact she's not going to marry you and quit giving her these not-so-subtle nudges!
Imogene is right. Look at how Mary is recoiling from Jeff's elbow!
Why is Dr.Jeff wearing a black Speedo over his khakis? Not a good look for a portly man of your age, Jeff...
Jeff just told Mary he wished she still had her younger body with the brains she has now.So he'd like her to have a young body with a failing memory? And why would you want that, Dr. Jeff? Hmmmm?
What's with Dr. Jeff's sudden macho image? There is chest hair peeking out, and he looks beefier. Could he be trawling for a new hottie?
Jeff's kind of got a young Rod Taylor look going on in the first panel today. How can Mary resist?Maybe she's not really a woman! She's a condescending, meddling Terminator with misfiring circuits causing repeated face-touching!--Beagle Vet
"All I need is a good mind, and a young body... Oh, and my Varsity jacket...but that's ALL I need. Well, also my Grecian Gray Hair formula for men and that's all. I just need a good mind, a young body, my Varsity jacket, my Grecian Hair formula for men and that's it. Oh...and my battery-operated flat screen tv. But that's ALL I need..."
You know, all of us today have been so focused on Dr. Jeff that we overlooked Mary's remark about "the mistakes I made when I was younger." Maybe Jeff will ask for details, and we will get flashbacks from Mary's youth! "Well, Jeff, I was wrong about supporting Prohibition, and I wish I hadn't voted for Coolidge."
Vicki, all he left out was his Pizza in a Cup!
April 4th's strip was amazing, my life instantly went from reprehensible to marvelous in the blink of an eye (roughly three days in Marytime).
