Mary uses both hands to (a) retrieve a quarter to give to Olive and (b) write an IOU for Olive to sign.

Olive has been on holiday break from school since before Thanksgiving.

Hey, anything can happen.

But it's probably just Ken Kensington using 'The Method' to prepare for his next role.

This guy is awfully down at the mouth for someone who maintains he's held on to his faith. Maybe he needs to choose a different one, perhaps the Church of the Worthy Mary. He also needs a personal stylist - his wardrobe is too matchy-matchy. That's true for Olive as well. She looks like she just arrived from North Korea.

Darn, I was sure it was going to be John Dill, his dreams of pinkcake splendor dashed.

Poor bearded George Clooney has lost everything...

I lost everything but my faith. And my sign. I lost everything but my faith and my sign. And the marker I used to make the sign. Everything but my faith and my sign and the marker. And, the coffee cup, too, I suppose. Everything but my faith and the sign and the marker and the cup. Then, too, I've still got my orange suit. So make that everything but my faith and the sign, marker, cup, and suit. Come to think of it, I think I've lost my faith. So to be totally honest, I've lost everything but the sign, the marker, the cup and the suit.

Yahoonski-I...can't...stop...laughing...

KitKat said...

@Yahoonski, I just about fell off my chair. Tee hee!

Sandi Ego said...

@yahoonski, that reminded me of Steve Martin in The Jerk ... "And this paddle ball game. And that's all I need!" lol
That looks awfully like Briadway Star Ken Kensington. Mary spurned him and this was the inevitable result. Oh, the power of that woman!

Sandi Ego said...

*Broadway*, though he's certainly a star on Briadway, too.

Yahoonski said...

Sandi Ego: Yes, that scene in The Jerk was my inspiration and I should have cited it.

I think richardmoderate may have best summed up the situation, though.

And as soon as you meet Mary, your faith will be gone too. Tee-Hee!!
