Has there ever been a more pitiable character than Turban Taxi Driver? His look of abject suffering says it all, "This is the longest fare of my life, but the meter isn't keeping pace. Somebody get me out of this cab!"
Today's full strip
He looks ready to snap.But I am far more intrigued by Panel Two, in which MW gushes about how she and Olive wound up helping each other! Can someone refresh my Memory as to how Olive helped her? Did Mary regain the Charterstone Diving Trophy or something?
I agree with Wanders - poor Turban Taxi Driver! He's clutching the steering wheel so tightly, he might pull it right out. His distress should be acknowledged at Worthy Awards time.I find Mary's rhapsodizing about her "little friend" to be extremely creepy - ugh. And, instead of another floating head of Olive, why not a floating head of the squirrel who tried to whack Mary?
@Nance at 8:38 a.m., Olive alerted Mary to a falling tree limb, with the aforementioned killer squirrel, as they gamboled along the Charterstone path, looking for flower fairies. I think Olive's tummy brain gave her the high sign.
Will real Olive measure up to Mary's idealized floating head Olive? Or will New York's tougher flower fairies induced her to become a preteen Goth chick?
"The destination has been arrived. Please to get out of cab now.""How much do I owe you?""Ten dollar.""But the meter only says 8 dollars.""Two dollar extra for floating head."
Who sits in the middle of the back seat?
Will Mary introduce Olive to the driver? "Say hello to my little friend."
I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm looking forward to a full week (at least!) of full-on, hardcore Mary worship! You know it's coming! Mary's face in panel 2 shows that she, too, knows that she is about to be worshiped by the Taylors, especially her "little friend" Olive.
Does anyone else think that the bearded turban man would be better off getting a job as a Mall Santa?
@KitKat--Thank you for that. Now I can be Worried Overmuch by the fact that I have No Memory Whatsoever of that incident. Maybe I was On Vacation. Yeah...that's it.@Yahoonski--Best Comment Award Winner! I laughed and laughed. Great punchline.
