I WANT to apologize, but I can't! How could I, after what you did?
New song on the Charterstone Jukebox: "She's Out of My Life" by Michael.
Today's full strip
Uh Oh, there's goes Mary's stash of haggis and 20 year old scotch.
This can't be wrapping up so easily, with a sudden change of heart by Toby and a perfunctory apology from the Jolly Green Scotsman. Ian will say something tactless: "You may not earn much (actually, you don't earn anything), lassie, but you always have my favorite cereal, Splak, in the kitchen. Baby, you're the greatest!" Toby will smack him with the Art Styl issue, burst into tears, and run out.
Same shirt; same green coat; same chest hair! But it's the next day. The smell of body odor and cheap liquor...that'll win Toby back.
This is a clever ruse by Toby to get Ian out of the house. In just a minute, she locks him in Mary's closet and runs back to her own apartment. Won't Mary be surprised to have a new house guest.
When the story stalls out, it's time to contemplate the background details. Is that a bookshelf-dresser or a regular bookcase? Is the picture standing on top of the furniture, or hanging on the wall? At any rate, Mary seems yo have cute little grey gargoyle bookends to complement her grey books. Bet Toby sculpted them.
Uh-oh. This could easily lead to them having a sudden, passionate renewal of relations right there in Mary's living room. By the way, where is Mary? In her bedroom with her ear against the door? Or did she considerately go out to pick up some kelk?
Oops. Sorry. I forgot Mary was going to be over at Jeff's for "a few hours." That's how long it usually takes because Jeff has to watch "Harold and Maude" to get in the mood.
Is Ian missing work to do this? That's not a good idea when your employment future is so shaky.
This won't end quickly.First - they talk about talkingThen - they talkThen - that talk about what they talked about to Mary / HiltonThen - say they tell each other they're glad they talkedThe over/under on the number of times "talk" or "speak" is used before this story line ends is 50. Who want over? Who wants under?New candidate for the jukebox: "Talk, Talk" by Talk Talk.
Yahoonski, now you've done it. You have burned an indelible image of Toby/Ian make-up sex into my brain and I will never forgive you.
Mary's passive-aggressive comment of the day:"There, there, dears. I'm just here in the bedroom reading my magazine. Jeff wasn't home. I can't hear anything you're talking about so feel free to get it all off your chests! ... Wait, what's that panting and grunting? Please don't muss the couch cover!"
@Anonymous at 3:32 p.m.: I want OVER 50! Today, we had 1 (from Toby Cameron, my favorite!). I can't wait! Also, I really dig the song suggestion! It was awesome!Also, Ian said that he wants to "clear the air." Will someone have gas and befoul the air with flatulence? That would be hilarious! Maybe it will be Mary, and that's how Toby and Ian find out that she's really still in the apartment!
