Adam and I have both gotten a lot more grey since this story began. But, hey, however long it takes.
I love that JG has mindfully included California's drought-stricken landscape into this panel. That hillside looks parched.Adam Miller has already been waiting almost a decade for Terry Bryson. What's a few more months of park-benching and thrill-seeking to him?(I see she's crying in Panel Two. Has his heartfelt speech Gotten To Her? Will she tearfully acquiesce now? It's Just Sappy Enough for KM.)
All will go well for Adam until Terry presents him with a 80 page prenuptial agreement. Then, I hope, we can see Adam's Death Ray.
Hey, Adam--you can wait 'til the cows come home. What part of she doesn't know IF she will EVER decide to be with you don't you hear? This guy should really start a career selling timeshare condos.
Please let it turn out that Terry has realized she likes girls better than boys.
Wanders, thanks so much for pointing out the visual. I would have missed that!
Thanks for your secret message, Wanders. That escaped me - you are much more observant than I am.I peg Adam as pushing 50 and Terry at least mid-40s (albeit emotionally they seem to be stuck in 10th grade). I hope this means that IF Terry gives in, they won't be able to reproduce.
Well, I was wrong yesterday about Adam wanting to crush Terry like an empty can. Today, he's shaking her like a bottle of chocolate milk instead. His words, though, are nice, even though his gestures are menacing. Talk about mixed messages!I bet Terry's response will be a mixed message, too. She is shedding a tear in panel two today. Tomorrow, her response to Adam will be ... karate CHOP!
@KitKat. Come to think of it, has there ever been a pregnancy plot in the Worthiverse? Seems that the kids come in the eight to ten year age range--save for Gordy, who kept shifting from about three to fourteen. I don't recall ever seeing an infant, or an expectant mom. Does anyone have a longer memory?
@fauxprof, your mention of an expectant mom rang a distant bell in my head. I scanned the excellent list of characters provided by Wanders and came across Delilah and Lawrence Jonis. A quick search of the archives (thanks, Wanders!) took me to Mary Worth #623 (Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2009):Delilah (on phone): I'm going to have a baby! I'm due in the spring!Mary (unseen, on other end of line): That's wonderful, Delilah! How's Lawrence reacting to the news? Two strips later, Delilah (and Lawrence and the child) disappeared from the pages of MW, never to be mentioned again.

"Ok, here's the plan: Invent a time machine so you can go back and erase the 8 years of pain and loneliness you inflicted on me. After that, we'll talk.""But time travel is impossible Terry. That will never work." "Then there's your answer, WE will never work. Goodbye Adam."
