On her way from the mailbox, Mary stops to punch in for another day of forced exercise and therapy at the Pax Wellness "Resort and Spa."
Today's Full Strip
For it is not always better to heed the words of the wise elders such as I and ignore untrue policies, irrespective of their basis in such mundane and arcane concerns as actually being qualified to render psychoanalytic advice in a fluffy spa setting?
Is that a Univac computer?What I'd like to ask Mary: If Shannon was the overweight nebbishy person and Aggie the svelte brunette, would you still defend Shannon and accuse Aggie? Just wondering...
In response to Nance's suggestion, yesterday, that we comment in verse or haiku: There once was a meddler named MaryWhose platitudes never did varyAt a dull desert spaShe assumed force of lawAnd the owners had better be wary(hey, a limerick. Counts as verse, doesn't it?)
Look out for Man Hands!Administrator, beware.She'll rip your face off.Do Mary's bidding:Keep Shannon; no one gets hurt.Think of Pax Wellness!
Oh healing beauty!Or is that just ol' Mary?Don't smell too closely.
Many mailboxesHow to know which one to choose?Somehow, Mary knows
Do you think Aggie overreacted? I'm not sure. They've only told us 147 times.
If Aggie never complained, then the only way they would know that Shannon offended her would be from Mary's letter, which may well be the trigger that gets Shannon fired. Nice work, Worth.
Mary ruminates:Aggie will ruin Shannon!Must think in boldface...
Will the admistrator be more receptive to feedback than Ms.Moy?
So Shannon might get fired just because one person with anger issues complained... Yes, that's realistic. As realistic as everything else in the Worthiverse...Why is it this thin plot is going on forever while the Beth/TomDear story which had LOTS more potential lasted less than half the time??
As Mary was writing her note,She thought that the spa was quite haute.But Aggie was rightShannon's really a blight,And the spa's not giving Mary a vote!
Aggie has complaintsMary comes to the rescueShannon's ass, covered
So I take it this conflict is our plot.Restorative and relaxing it's not.We already know from Thorp's spoiler,that it thoroughly embroils herwhich is good. For Maryair's easier to breathe when it's hot.Thanks for the suggestion, Nance. Always better when I can respond to boredom with creativity.
This "plot;" it brings pain.When will Mary release us?Not this life, I fear.
With a wing, not a hand, she deliversWhile the Pax Wellness management quiversThey know Mary's a cootAnd a meddler to bootSo they're off hiding, pickling their livers.
