Mary Worth 2102

Well, as thrilling as all this is, I can't help wondering where Mary is off to, there in her good Pepto-pink summer ensemble and aggressively contrasting clutch. I'm hoping for a nice long gossipy lunch with Toby at the Bumboat.

Truth be told, I so desperate for this to end that I'd settle for a sandwich-fest with Wilbur at Diner.

Oh, that's her clutch in her left hand? I thought Adam and Terry caught her taking a nip or two from her hip flask before she hit the road....and a couple of bystanders along the way.

She helped him apply for a job? How tough is it to upload your resume to their HR database?

Good ones, Wanders! And even if he's not her manager but in fact has the same job title as she does, he's probably still making more money.

Hey, do any of y'all watch the Showtime series "Ray Donovan"? It just occurred to me how wonderful it would be if the dysfunctional Donovan family were to move into Charterstone. Mary could commence trying to straighten them out while simultaneously fending off the amorous advances of John Voigt's character Mickey (Ray's dad). I picture Angela Lansbury in the role of Mary.

Wanders, you are right on with both your comment and secret message.

Boy, being together 24/7 ad nauseam! If that's not the recipe for marital bliss, what is?

Mary looks catatonic in the second panel as she stares past Terry and Adam. Is she as sick of them as we are, or is she just fit to be tied that she's been so peripheral to this plot?

KitKat, you're right there. Working together and living together isn't for everyone. And it didn't work for them before!

I want to see Mary invite them over for dinner so she can watch them "interact." Later, when they break up, Mary can tell them to "review past interactions for possible causes"!

He goes to interview with the CEO, and is offered a job "ON THE SPOT". On the Spot? Doing WHAT? Lunch room security? And all this on he basis of a single interview?

Adam is no techno geek. He's into security, protection, and investigation. And the CEO just rolls with it, and takes Adam's word on the matter? In a SINGLE interview?

Maybe Adam was able to personally demonstrate his skill in the art of Cane Jitsu.
