Mary Worth 2084

Whoa, I forgot that Adam is crippled. I'm glad he held up his cane to remind me. I also forgot that Adam and Terry used to be at another table, with a plain pane of glass and levolor blinds. I'm glad they changed seats after they finished their meal -- this table is much nicer.

Today's strip

Oh, yeah, nice body language Adam. Threaten her with the cane if she doesn't fall into line.

Life is truly brutal.

I was curious as to how long this fascinating story has kept me on the edge of my seat and today, it is 100 days since Mary first encountered Adam.

Can you believe it? Just 14 weeks and two days into it and what have we learned? Adam uses a cane, both were secret agents, and love has never died. Oh, and there's a chic new restaurant in town. Now, that's news.

@smooth at 8:12 a.m., 100 days already? It only feels like 99 to me.

Adam is going to use his cane to snag desserts from a nearby table. Now we know what really matters in life - pie!

Our two rapidly aging lovebirds are changing tables (and, in Terry's case, dresses) in their version of dine and dash. Their next move will be out the door, and the mom-jeans-wearing server will be left holding the check, scratching his head, and muttering, "?!"

That face......where have I seen that face? It's the face the bulldog used to make on the old Warner Brothers' cartoons when something didn't work out. Speaking of not working out, these two need to cut their losses and move on already! When the guy starts making pouty faces it's time to wake up and smell the salmon squares.

Details... all the tables are essentially the same.

Wow, haven't commented here in a while. Like months.
At least I didn't miss any plot development!

How many meals must I endure without the appearance of Chin Napkin? Please Uncle Joe!

That first panel could be in the running for Panel of the Year! The facial expression, the threatening cane..

Enough of this talking inside. Let's find a nice bench outside and continue this fascinating, endless, circular discussion there.

Adam: "Ya want a taste of my candy cane for desert or what?"
This about to get ugly. Someone at Santa Oil marine boat
service and restaurant dial 911!

WEDS: The waitstaff at Marina Royale is super efficient. First they took away the empty plates. Then they took away the wine glasses. Now they've taken away the table.

Hey Uncle Joe - Wanders hasn't yet put up Wednesday's strip. You still have time to go back and draw in the legs of the 3 people sitting at the table by the window!

"This time I know where I want to be and it's with you!" At least until another smooth-talking Congressman comes around.

This plot is like the directions on a shampoo bottle. At least I get clean hair from a shampoo bottle. Zzzzzz..

KitKat said...

@Yahoonski at 9:06 a.m., the waitstaff is not the only speedy thing today. Adam's gray hair is positively zipping across Adam's noggin.

Earth to Adam: A woman who hasn't gotten over a breakup in EIGHT YEARS is a lost cause. Cut your losses and get out of Santa Royale, bucko.
