Instead of their usual denouement walk, Mary and Toby have set up chairs and an umbrella on a path at the beach, where they enjoy refreshing Agua® and apparently eat invisible doughnuts.
Today's Full Strip
Everyone, go to Panel Two for added enjoyment! Mary seems to be wearing a black swimcap (because I will NOT believe that blackness is the umbrella's shadow covering her head). Mary may be suffering from a concussion after rescuing Olive. No one thought to examine her at the hospital, did they? It's a good thing Toby questions her glass before drinking. ("?") In Mary's condition, who knows what she put in that glass.
@Peggy Olson at 8:04 AM, I think that between panels Mary realized she had forgotten the cap that coordinates with her dress (note the black piping around the collar and arm holes - tres chic!). I'm confused - is the patio Mary's or Toby's? Whatever, Mary's smug reply means that Toby will have to get the details from Wilbur, who has certainly interviewed Olive for his "I'm Alive!" column.
BOW AT MY FEET YOU MERE MORTALS!
Toby utters "?" in panel 2, what does "?" sound like again?
Why waste time with this boring little aside? Let's get to the exciting drama of: "The Removal of Olive Taylor's Torso Cyst".Wouldn't it be hilarious if during the cyst removal, a drugged-out Dr. Kapuht barges into the OR? With arms flailing knocking trays and assorted assistants out of the way as he stumbles to Olive's side and knocks Dr. Replacement out of the way as he bellows: "Hey, that's MY cyst removal procedure!" He refuses to leave until someone (maybe one of Olive's imaginary angels) beans him with a bedpan.
That's not an invisible doughnut (or a barely visible one)! Toby is whitening her teeth during her visit with Mary and take out the appliance to talk.Yes, it's gross, but that's our Toby!Also, I think it's dead grass along the road and not a beach - it's rare to have conifers which look like that so close to a beach.
Here's hoping we get some resolution: is Olive's torso cyst benign? Will Dr. Jeff get Kapuht into rehab? These questions need to be answered before the child heads back to New York bearing a small bodily scar, a large emotional scar, and a dubious apple pie recipe.
Why is Mary wearing a miniature patio umbrella on her head?
YESSSSS!!!! Toby Cameron! I have missed you so! (a friendly shout-out from your biggest fan)Someone posted last week that we all share a "weird hobby." You got that right!
