Mary Worth 1,650

Karen Moy, Man Lesson: Men do not go to women's prisons or spas. They do not sign up for "Sharing Circles." And for the love of hunting bear with a Bowie knife, they do NOT -- they ESPECIALLY do NOT -- volunteer to share first!

What kind of spa does this type of thing? You go to a spa to have facials, back rubs, steam baths, not to have to sit in a circle on office chairs and listen to dull stories!

Wanders, your series of photos for yesterday is hilarious - thanks!

A number of commentors earlier today pointed out that this guy looks like John Dill. He seems to have (ahem) filled out some. Now that he's hit the cake design big time, JD us using performance-enhancing drugs to give him an edge in competitions. Just think about it - John Dill and A-Rod both in NYC. Coincidence? I think not.

Anyone immediately raising a hand and offering to share at something like this is up to no good. People usually shift uncomfortably in their chairs and avoid eye contact in creepy situations like this. This could be promising, except that Karen Moy always dashes our hopes.

Isn't that John Dill? He's probably there for the restorative powers of the beauty of nature. Let's hope he shares about his trip to New York to train with the renowned cake designer Chef Pierre.

The man who wants to share first is resplendent in an aquamarine shirt, shorts and shoe set.

I can't wait to hear what he wants to share! No topic is off limits. That's how yogi Shannon runs things.

Wanders, have you heard of the documentary Kumare? I've just watched it and it's a phenomenal movie. For some strange reason, it makes me think of Mary Worth. I think a lot of it is my own projection, but I can't help but think of Mary as a false prophet in a story told by an unintentional prophet in a story which accidentaly reveals truths. Truths about pink cakes and blue shoes, but truths nonetheless.

Thorpnotized said...

I was just thinking, it's a good thing Dr. Jeff didn't accompany Mary to this spa. If he and John Dill both ended up in this talk session, there would likely be fireworks!

(Wanders - the link to today's strip takes you to yesterday's instead.)

Token male will reveal that in 1929 he lost the love of his life when she was killed by a many who jumped off the roof of a building to get away from his wife and her endless cliches about life.
Mary and male will look at each other. The pain of that terrible day in 1929 will come back and male will drag MW to the spa's roof and throw her off.
A young grieving widow will be walking by and killed as MW falls on her. Mary will walk away with insights into random acts and their effects on people.

Nance said...

@KitKat--I heartily agree with you about the first sharer. We can only hope he starts a rant we can entitle "What The Hell Kind Of Spa Is This?" followed closely by "Just Give Me My Money Back And No One Gets Hurt."

I think Mr. Sensitivity has come up with a sure-fire way to pick up women of a certain age. By the time he is through sharing he will have a room full of adoring women.

Eager to share man: "I think I'm going crazy! I keep seeing sea gulls in the middle of the Sonoran desert when I go outside. Has anyone else seen them? I'm I going insane?"

Apple Mary said...

Oh my gosh, Wanders. You took the words RIGHT out of my mouth. In a share circle of women, the lone man is not going to jump in first to get all "emotiony."

kathyo said...

Shannon's all ready to take notes for her forthcoming book.

Vicki said...

This man is no good and I know that because he has a pot belly. He obviously doesn't swim in the pool, do Yoga, or walk in the desert (with a proper water bottle) or else he would be perfect like Mary and her hero, Shannon Yoga. No,no... this sorry man is undisciplined, overweight and therefore unWorth-y.

A room FULL of meddling opportunities! You can tell by Mary's face she is getting a tingly feeling in a very special place.

Shmoopie said...

Please, oh please let this be a story about a widowed and/or lonely man who has been looking for but unable to find true love. Here at the sharing circle, many kind women will tell him not to give up, that the right lady is somewhere waiting, nay pining, for a love such as only he has to offer. Enter latecomer June and BAM! Fireworks!! Cue wedding bells off in the distance. Throw in a floating head or two, and what a great and unusual story that would make!

Chin Napkin Groupie said...

I have some thoughts and feelings I'd like to share but this is a family blog.

heydave said...

I suppose it's too much to hope that Male begins his commentary along the line of "yeah, I got something to share..."

But it is truly gratifying to see that Mary's thoughts come along with their very! own! exclamation points!!1!

fauxprof said...

If you took DNA from John Dill and Wilbur Weston, you could clone something like Mr. Sharing Man. Certainly, no actual human male would act like this.

BTW, the little day spa I sometimes go to is far more elegant than "Pox"' and no one asks you to share your feelings.

Chester the Dog said...

No topic is off limits...Mary's mind is racing at the mere idea...

Shannon has Mary's dream job: meddlerator (moderator of meddling).

QuakerJohn said...

Sorry but I have to stick up for Ms. Moy on this one. The all women motif is indeed continued, and you Philistines have obviously never met a member of Bulgeria's female weightlifting team.
