Mary teaches an important lesson here: No matter how good we think we are, there is always room to think we are better.

Let's resolve to develop a plot in 2016. Olive, you used to be fun, with the flower fairies, guardian angels, midnight drownings and heroin addicted surgeons. Now it's just one big sanctimonious stroll around Manhattan. I'm glad you're both enjoying your time together, but I'm about ready to see what's going on at Apartment 3-G. I'm sure it is more exciting than this.

For those of you who don't have access to the Sunday splash panel, I wanted to make sure you saw this. You can thank me later.
I'm not sure a house guest and your child on the balcony outside that sliding glass door constitute privacy. But, hey, if you're comfortable, go for it.

This Mary Worth Christmas story is a delight, casting images of Evy and Tee-Hee Eddie to the dim, peripheral corners of our mind, then offering prayers in church for loved ones far and near. I'm going to stop worrying about the turkey they cooked the day before Christmas dinner, and just wish everyone here a very merry holiday! Thank you for your kindness and support of this blog, and to those of you who recently made donations, I thank you as well. I'm going to use those gifts to donate to a family of one of my employees who had a house fire two weeks ago, and are now living in a hotel. I hope you find joy in the peace of this season and the coming year.

How condemned will Tee-Hee Eddie feel when Mary Worth comes knocking on the door to ask if she can take Olive to church!
I can't wait to hear Eddy holler from behind closed doors, "Mary, we don't care where you take Olive, or what religion you are! You know that. We will see you later."

"You get me, Mary... wait. What? You think my supernatural experiences are imaginary? You don't believe I really see angels and flower fairies? You're no better than my pathetic parents. You're dead to me, Mary. Dead to me."

Okay, can we just establish the fact that Mary and Olive ALWAYS know what each other means. There's no reason to say, "I know what you mean." Even though neither of them can verbalize the deep feelings and insights they experience at the world around them, it doesn't matter because the other will clearly understand. In fact, words don't need to be said at all. These two can just hang out together in complete silence, glancing at each other knowingly.

It appears that the velociraptor has indeed become animate and is grabbing its first victims. Quick. Protect yourselves.
I must say, yesterday's comments had me chuckling outloud. All were hilarious, but I hope you sung Fauxprof's song outloud.

Olive, people are going to hate you because of your special powers. The time is now. Seek vengeance while you can. Levitate yourself and lead these inanimate objects to reign horror on the torpid bourgeoisie of Manhattan!

I am thankful for today's classic dialog. The fact that Mary is in New York City for the sole purpose of spending time with Olive, and even living with her, makes today's Moyisms even more Moyish than usual. I love that they are actually already on a local outing when she asks. I am excited by the vagueness of the number of weekends Mary plans to stay, and the suggestion that Mary plans to spend every moment Olive is out of school on the town with her.
Just for fun, I ran Mary's sentence through Google Translate a few times and then back into English, and it came up with, "Olive, what should we do for fun while I'm visiting you?"
Two years ago, on Thanksgiving, Mary was also in New York City, enjoying her post-mugging lunch:
It reminds me that I never reported on my experience in our local community production of Footloose. I'll just say, it was a defining role for me, and truthfully, the time of my life. So glad I let my neighbor convince me to audition, even though I hadn't done anything like it for 18 years. Now I can't wait to do it again!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

"Speaking of local hot spots, we would love to take you and Olive out to A Local Hot Spot for dinner tonight. No wait, I meant Eddy and I are going to A Local Hot Spot, and would love to give you and Olive some alone time in our moneyed apartment. Get used to it, dear lady"

Well, at long last our Mary Worth/Phantom cross-over comes to a close. What an exciting week it has been. I thoroughly enjoyed the creative shared experience of Mary and Heloise. How fun it was for me to meet a character from a comic strip that I don't care about.

While Mary Worth continues to chat delightfully about the essential joys of human interaction, the "Phantom" has apparently grown bored with this Rashomon story and returned to its previously scheduled programming, which will no doubt feature human interaction of a different sort.

Well, today is the day that the entire Worthiverse has been waiting for. It was recently leaked that there would be a Mary Worth crossover with another comic strip, and today we learn it is the Phantom!
Of course, I don't read the Phantom, so I really could not care less.

I know, Mary. Right? Things are really moving along. But don't worry everyone, this story will slow down and we will all be able to relax.
For those of you who remember I'm in a play, we opened last night and it was pretty nerve racking for me. But I had a blast, and if you're in the Montgomery County, Maryland area, you can get ticket information here. I will be played by Ken Kensington.
