Well, I'd say that this Sharing Circle was a disaster. But not as big a disaster as a certain wedding reception I recall:
Today's Full Strip
It seems Yoga Shannon was following some sort of Sharing Circle Script, judging by the piece of paper that appears today. My guess is that MW will now school her in Advice Ministering and People Helping Skillz.The look on Government Employee's face is hilarious. What did he smell?
And, so very sadly, the only person in the room with quasi-coherent lines has gone. The remaining vacuum really sucks.
Looks like the vultures have some good eatin' ahead.And no, the Pax Wellness Prison, er, Resort does not offer refunds for getting picked on in the sharing circle.Hopefully after Aggie's departure, Shannon will turn back to the group and ask, "So! Who'd like to share next?"
It's a good thing that Exit sign is posted. Otherwise, Aggie would have leaped out a window or crashed into a wall.Of course a lumpy, pudgy woman would have a lumpy, pudgy name like "Aggie." Not Diana, Joanna, Nola....
Still think it was a good idea to "try something new" Mary? Of course you do. You'll be able to meddle for weeks.Oh, and in the first panel, Mary is running after Aggie, but in the second, she's sitting next to her hero, Shannon, on a chair. Mary seems to have teleportation as another one of her powers.
Aggie just needs a nice, long walk in the desert, so she can experience the restorative power of the beauty of nature.
I don't need your "help" reminds me of a video on YouTube, It's Not About the Nail. Sometimes, we just need someone to listen.
Love Blondie's expression in the last panel. "Get outa here you big overstuffed avocado!"
So for the past few weeks that feel like months, has this strip been sponsored by some anti-spa organization?
I'm amazed that Shannon's yoga experience has not helped her lead a group therapy session. The skill sets are so similar! :-)Maybe Mary will ask Widow June to counsel Aggie. It could be the Widow's internship for her M.Eddle degree from MWU. And am I the only one who's noticed how Uncle Joe is drawing Aggie? This is a Don't Ask, Don't Tell blog, but he must be trying to suggest something! (She's not even wearing purple or pink!)
Pax Wellness could really use an open bar.
Shannon - please leave the "helping" (ie meddling) to the professionals. Thank you very much.
How does Aggie say " "help" " asdistinct from " help " ?
@Maude Findlay--The comic strip character's comment notwithstanding, I am stumped trying to think of ANYPLACE where an open bar wouldn't be a great idea. (Except the obvious AA meeting.)When I was teaching, I always thought the staff lounge would have benefitted immensely from one, as would have most of our delivery. Today, I took my mother to yet another one of her medical appointments. THAT would have been a magnificent place for an open bar--the waiting room. And what about the grocery store? A tedious job made delightful!
Nance, my local Albertson's frequently samples adult beverages in their impressive liquor aisle. They make you step inside a little cordoned off area and give you small cups of booze. Ask for enough of those and grocery shopping is delightful. Sharing Circle needs to include a bottle of whiskey to pass around - now that's sharing!
Thanks to Wanders' posting the "open bar" panel next to the latest one of Aggie tearfully exiting, I can't help feeling cheated that Joe G couldn't draw a NEW panel for Aggie's undignified, unhappy exit.Instead, he slaps some orange paint on the EXIT sign. . . Even the color of the room is the same as the "open bar" panel. Sheesh. . .Not bound to make Aggie feel better. Maybe he's on vacation.
