If people ever find out about this in Santa Royale, she's going to be cast out of respectable society. Hope she hasn't gotten rid of her old sign.
Today's Full Strip
DOSC's response in the second panel should have been, "OH MARY... LET'S GO SHOPPING FOR MY BAG!"It's nice to see that Antonio's went all out to decorate for Halloween.
Mary, walking the 1/2 block from your elocution lessons to the limo waiting for you on the corner every Tuesday afternoon, that really does not count as "living on the streets"
Wow. SO MUCH to pick at.1. Apparently Toby whiles away her time in NYC with One-Armed Jim, strolling the avenues.2. Antonio's, still searching for its dining niche, puts entire sticks of butter on the table, but uses napkin dispensers and a silly jack-o-lantern in the window.3. Mary, probably in a fit of meddling, directed DOSC to work at Promise Haven. Likely it was a sort of "there are others so much worse off than you. Go find them and help them to heal yourself" pearl of wisdom. But now, of course, it's all about HER.4. Mary looks very Masculine whilst remembering her tough street days in Panel Two.@Thorp--I still think there is time for this embryonic plot development to fall apart. At any time, DOSC can still say, "OH MARY...LET'S GO SHOPPING FOR MY BAG!"
So, did Mary just admit to being a former streetwalker?!I'm still cackling over the "Will Meddle for Food" sign! WELL DONE!!
Mary makes recommendations to all her friends, acquintances, and spurned lovers to volunteer in areas from her troubled past. Dr. Jeff is in Vietnam as mary seeks to repair the damage from her troubled teen years in the foothills there.And for those in my area, I recommend Antonios pepperoni and banana pepper pizza. Looking at the first panel, you can see why they're going to remodel. Yes, that's Antonios (after remodel) lbeled 'restaurant' at the attached link. And to think they can just walk down the strip to get that bag from marc's Aisle 1!http://media.cleveland.com/parma/photo/we9160404cjpg-112233ae95b63efa.jpg
...and Happy Halloween to the MW&M crowd. Was hoping to see the treat of a platitude and gathering (in full costume) around the Charterstone pool. here's hoping the ran holds off tonight for taking my pack of kids out.
No, Mary couldn't have used Promise when she was a kid because it hadn't been invented yet. All they had was butter, bacon fat, and oleo margarine!
Now we know where Mary got her street cred.
A shout-out to all you fashionable gentlemen who intend to visit New York soon: be sure to wear your brightest blue jackets and suits. All the really stylish men are wearing cerulean this year, and azure is the new black!
The invisible food at Antonio's must be very fattening - DOS looks considerably plumper today.I'm surprised Mary didn't say "inmates."
My personal treat today has to be the star burst of speech coming through the window. Action!Well, sort of...
@Dave in Parma,10:34 amI hope the remodeled Antonio's at Parmatown gets one of those cool doormats that says "Moy and Giella."And I'd love to see Drew Carey show up while Mary and Dear Old Shelly Cohen are having lunch; it's supposed to be his favorite pizza.
So when Mary encouraged Shelly to work with homeless youth because Mary was once a homeless youth...it was because Mary sympathizes with homeless youth?Well, isn't that special, Miss Mary? Why the hay didn't you devote your life to them the way Shelly has? Wouldn't that have been better than just individually nosing around and enjoying the modest suffering of the Santa Royale Upper Class Wasp Society? Then you'd be the one getting a testimonial dinner (or even a roast!) You set your sights way too low, Mary dear...
So it took me two days to notice, but...isn't there a word missing from the second panel? Mary is saying "I briefly lived on the streets when was young." How about "...when *I* was young."
@kathyo at 1:53 PM, I noted the missing "at" also, both online and in print. Maybe's Mary's family was so disadvantaged, they couldn't afford enough words. Friday's strip: "During my childhood, there were times I wasn't sure I could survive it!" If the youthful Mary was anything like the super-meddler she became, her parents might have said the same thing.
Mary's claiming the one time she camped out on the stadium sidewalk to get those Blaze playoff tickets as her street cred. What a poseur!
And why couldn't Mary work at the Haven? I'll bet she couldn't pass the background check. Was it when the New York police arrested her for making bathtub gin in 1924? (She was the Stork Club's biggest supplier.) Or was it when she and Susan B. Anthony were arrested for illegally voting for Horace Greely in the Election of 1872? Could it have been her arrest for speeding at 14mph in a horseless carriage through Central Park? Ah well, the Haven's loss was Charterstone's gain, and Mary didn't have to hug poor people.
