“Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?” Albert Camus
Tomorrow, I fear, we start the recap-in-the-kitchen that will take us well into the second quarter of next year - especially as she may have to review all this action with both Wilbur and Mary.Pie for everybody!
I think we finally are nearing this story's end. I look forward to a "Meanwhile..." !
After they walk off the end of the pier and into the water, Jim, unaccustomed to swimming without his left arm, will drown. Of course Dawn, excellent swimmer that she is, will save herself. The seagulls, perched on Jim's floating prosthetic arm, will drift into the sunset.
"This plot could not be any Stranger. Hey, that gives me an idea."--Albert Camus
My thoughts exactly, Wanders.Either Jim is shrinking or Dawn is growing, because up to today, Jim had a good six inches on Dawn. Now that Jim has come around to Dawn's terms in this relationship, maybe they will merge into one entity - let's call it Dim.My word verification is "istamme," which I interpret as "It's time" (for a new plot).
Hold on there, buckaroos! My wager of new plot on the 17th still holds.C'mon, Mary! Wendy needs some platitudes!
"Those who write clearly have readers, those who write obscurely have commentators."-Albert Camus
A truism in the Worthiverse: The worse a story gets, the more awesome and creative the comments become. This blog makes my day every morning! Now I can't wait for the recaps (Wilbur, Mary, Toby, random person in Community College/hospital cafeteria/at THE PIER, etc.) to be done with and the start of a beautiful new non-Dawn story!BTW, I keep waiting for that one creepy seagull we always see in profile to turn towards us suddenly and say something VERY profound.
"Obscure" is the kindest reference to Moy's writing to date.
By the by, when does Dawn turn into a huge bug?
"Stupid is as stupid does."-Forrest Gump
Should I go for the same joke about rope, seagulls and crates?No?Okay, now the pier has the more familiar planks to walk on. The panel Wanders included is a perspective nightmare. Is there a whole section missing a railing off to the left? Talk about dangerous.Okay, but seriuosly, what is up with these crates!? It reminds me of waiting in line to get on the Jungle Cruise at Disney World and you file past all these replicas of stuff like you're about to board the African Queen...Hey there's a thought, maybe Dawn should take Jim to see the African Queen, just to see if he's really over his fear of the water and/or boating mishaps.
Those of you wishing for a new story line shouldn't be so hasty. The next one will most likely be even worse.
"To be happy we must not be too concerned with others""The absurd is the essential concept and the first truth"Albert Camus and Mary Worth, it all makes sense now.
Pool party at Charterstone! Please!
Excuse me but in normal life (i.e. outside the Worthiverse) what kind of platonic friends walk with their arms around each other like that?!?
@Anonymous 1:00 p.m. - Agreed! Dawn, you're giving him false hope, you vixen!
I'm shocked,SHOCKED, that cliches are being used in the Worthiverse.
Well. . . Toots, I would agree with your reference to the "African Queen", given Jim's penchant for movies with Humphrey Bogart, but I fear he is too new in his PTSD recovery to attempt a movie about a boat. . .I don't want to see his angry face again.
LouiseF- I suppose this rules out The Caine Mutiny also?
The seagull that is always present; What is it going to do, now that the story line is over? Shouldn't some kind of advising thought bubble come forth from the aviary friend of Dawn/Jim? That bird has been there since the beginning, listening to DawnJim babble. Please! A thought?
Pool party with Tuna Noodle Casserole for everyone!
Meg - nice Casablanca paraphrase
