Mary Worth 1,460

Dawn leaves the classic "just friends" voice mail. Some real zingers. "You're an amazing guy..." "Why mess with a good thing?" "It's not you, it's me..." and, of course, the almost clich├ęd, "This has nothing to do with your missing arm..."

All of this would be cruel enough, but she leaves it on Jim's voice mail. I guess this is how the story ends because one thing I can absolutely guarantee: Jim is as gone as his left arm. We will never hear from that guy again.

Oh, I so wish it! And can he take Dawn with him?

Hmm, you're just being a meany tease, aren't you?

We may not hear from Jim again but we may see him once more - self-immolation on the doorstep of Dawn's apartment.

If this guy is as unbalanced as he seems, that voice mail message is going to send him right over the edge. I don't think we've seen the last of him....

So I was thinking (!!) the other day, and I wondered how much of a story Karen & Joe set out ahead of time. For instance, did she just think of the Dawn gets dumped and goes on a cruise storyline or did she envision this whole masterpiece? I wish I had a job where I could coast for six months on one stupid idea.

Before she left that voicemail for Jim, Dawn consulted "Bartlett's Familiar Breakup Cliches". (She's got the app on her smartphone.)

I would like to see Dawn kill those two birds with her one phone.

Stick with the pursuit Jim --- teenagers who prefer sporting Hillary Clinton pantsuits don't grow on trees.

At least she didn't dump him via Twitter.

Karen Moy will have Dawn dump him via fax or telex.
