Of course, at this point in the story, Mary doesn't know about Nola/Lola's transformative encounter with Recycling Homeless Man. Is Mary psychic as well as nebby? That's a Pittsburghese term for nosy -- someone who can't stay out of folks' business. (In other words, Mary Worth.)When she's really interfering where she doesn't belong, we'd call her a nebs##t. (That ends today's lesson.)
How many examples of transformations can Jeff & Mary think of? It's only Thursday.(from another Pittsburgher)
Today's platitudes transformed me... from somewhat awake to fitfully dozing.
Im totally with Wanders - Jeff's story sounds more interesting. Then again, they'd figure out a way to make that story dull too. I'm a little perturbed at how this storyline has degenerated into one big Smug-Off for Mary and her tubby beau. All the face touches and thought bubbles in the world can't make up for the platitude-filled goo that we're now forced to wade through. Could I actually be missing Nola?
...and Mary knows this about Nola...HOW? Moy should've provided a "linket" (one of my WV's) to connect the story line.
Oh, I get it, we're going to be doubly denied - we're just going to reminisce about Nola, and get some peripheral info on Cheating Minister. I guess the next story line is about to fire up. But I sure would like to know if the honeymooners are back yet, or if the hipster thieves were ever caught. Or if Mary retrieved her purse...did she? I might have been snoozing.
Maybe Nola's character wanted a salary increase and Moy had to write around her all this week while they negotiated in order to keep the strip going. . . Either that or Nola's on spring break. I imagine she's in Ft. Lauderdale. . .
Meanwhile... We are LONG overdue for a Wilbur story! Wilbur stories make for the best comments. The actual stories are dull as dishwater, but the comments are always hilarious, and truly almost write themselves.
OMG! Dan Smithers stole Nola's hair!!!I'm hoping MARY can stop being so set in her ways and realize she has to change. But I'm not optimistic.--Beagle Vet
Mary, I beg to differ! I recall you wrote off Aldo Kelrast. That's revisionist history.I like Dr. Jeff's remark that he's "seen it at work." Jeff hasn't worked in years - he's been convalescing since his near death at Peace Village. More revisionist history!@Elaine, what do you think of this storyline: Adrian and Scott ARE the hipster thieves. They turned into Bonnie and Clyde when they returned from their lengthy honeymoon.
NEXT STORYLINE SUGGESTION:As an expression of thanks to Mary for giving her advice, Nola stops by Mary's apartment to give her a gift basket (much like Emily Smith and her parents did awhile back). Instead of fruit, Nola's basket contains unrefrigerated Easter eggs, which cause Mary to becomes ill from food poisoning. Nola claims, "well, they were only for decoration..." Mary is hospitalized, with Dr. Jeff steadfastly at her bedside. He proposes to Mary once again, but she, in her fever-induced delirium, turns him down and crushes his dreams...again.I've come up with a new word: "emdubya", which is a synonym for the word "meddle".intr.v. - em·dub·ya, em·dub·yasn. - em·dub·yeradj. - em·dub·ying, em·dub·ya·some
Actually, Mary thinks that having lunch with her is the special "event" that changes peoples' lives (how many lives did Mary change while drinking coffee at Diner?). The Happy Hobo has no chance of receiving credit for Nola's change, regardless of what she says.Other non-Mary life-changing events include going fishing and/or flying a kite with Wilbur.
When this storyline began, I was sure Nola had slept her way to the top. I thought it couldn't get any more anticlimactic...--wheelheadWV: eculdhis oneedle (how very suggestive for the host of a family friendly blog..."Cuckhold his needle"?
talk about "changing" --has no one noticed that Jeff is looking quite handsome and manly today!?
Kathyo- I too was wondering how Mary knew all this transformational info about Nola. It's happening as they speak, right? Blast Mary Worth and her loose time traveling ways.
Is Mary picturing Nola, or is Nola imagining Mary?So looking forward to Sunday's single panel landscape with Mary spouting a platitude for Easter.
