Neutral ground? Neutral ground is a restaurant near the police station. Mary's apartment is a potential crime scene.
Art Styl is THE magazine of choice for all gray haired readers and gray clay sculptors worldwide. It's graytone format permits one to imagine what a pink, institution green, purple, orange, and black world might look like. Whether it be cars, clothing, walls, drapes, or Splak, Art Styl has you covered.
Wait - Charterstone has drop ceilings, at least in its ever-morphing foyers (sometimes the door opens directly into Mary's ultra-bland living room, sometimes not)? My opinion of the place, never all that high, continues to drop...
Note that Mary is the owner of a Toby Cameron Original Precious Penguin GrayCharm sculpture (see bookcase behind chair).
Toby's "change of heart" came when she realized that she packed the contents of the linen closet, and doesn't have any clean clothes. She's been wearing the same outfit since she arrived. (Wanders, thanks for posting today's entire strip. All I can get at both the Cleveland and Seattle websites is a little blank square.)
Looks like the lead article in this month's Art Styl is "The Persistence of Polka Dots."
No wonder Toby's never been able to aspire to be anything more than a "girl toy" for an impulsive, aging, bloated, stinking, poorly shaven community college professor. He probably picked her up as she was hitchhiking to a Phish concert in the early 90s and they've been together ever since she discovered he has a credit card (Discover.) She suddenly decides, "Sure, why not? What was I so mad about?" and agrees to talk to him. You'll be sorry, Toby. You deserve to be sorry. After seeing the way that Ian reacted when you left, you're going to see him alone? Say hello to Aldo Keralst for us-soon you'll be with him!
I wonder what Toby saw in ArtStyle that provoked this sudden Change Of Heart. Perhaps it was the article "Animal Sculptures Are So Passe: Toss Them On The Clown Painting Pile And Grab A Match!"
If this is how Toby spends the average day, I'd say Ian showed great restraint in not playing the "money card" before this. If she is smart (Ha!) she'll beg his forgiveness and continue her lazy ways.
Mary's passive-aggressive comment of the day:"There, there, dear. Why don't you meet with Ian while I'm out of the apartment and have a nice heart-to-heart chat? There are fresh muffins and your favorite flavor of tea in the kitchen, so you can play the competent hostess. Then, we'll have you out of here by TONIGHT! Er ,,, I mean ... then you can think about when you'd like to go back home where you belong. Ta-ta!"
