Olive never had to go to school because Mary was teaching her!
Today's full strip
The teacher in Mary should be able to come up with more complex sentence structure.
And she shouldn't begin a sentence with "And."
Bread and water - the "great food" Jeff mentioned yesterday.What teaching background does Mary have? Maybe I'm ill informed, but I thought Mary has never worked a day in her life."The girl is great. I'm so proud of her! She's well on her road to becoming another me, not that that's possible considering how great I am, but she might approach my greatness some day if she works hard and gets a lot more instruction from me, despite her worthless parents...."
"I'm so proud of her! She's already pedantic and boring, and I mentored her on her first mini-meddle with a homeless man. Yes, someday she will be a worthy successor. See what I did there? Worthy! So, let's talk about you, Jeff, and how much you missed me."
Welcome to Talking At Cross Purposes Theater. By the way, a free fish wall hanging to the first reader who can cite a single pride-inducing aspect of greatness exhibited by the little truant during Mary's visit.
In order to preserve Mary's appetite, it appears Jeff has applied Nair to his chest.
Pride-inducing aspect of greatness exhibited by the little truant during Mary's visit: Olive managed to operate the binoculars at the top of the Empire State building without using a quarter!
Looks like they're tossing back either straight vodka or gin. I predict by the end of the meal, Dr. Jeff will be wearing that fish on his head.
Two-handed wine chugging. Classy.
Delilah @10:53 - I believe Dr Jeff is accustomed to wearing the fish *through* his head...
Really! I've been reading MW for years and this is the first I've heard of her having been a teacher.
SATURDAY"I'm glad you both benefited from your visit!"--Wait, wha..???? What do you mean "both"???!!! Olive benefited from ME, but no one can teach me anything. I'm already practically perfect in every way!Uh, oh, Jeff, prepare to face the Wrath of Worth!
It's incredible (and narcissistic) how many times Mary uses "I" and "me".Panel 1: Three times in a single sentence.
Sunday A panel with Mary having a floating head of HERSELF is stunning enough, but it's coupled with floating torsos of herself and Olive- unprecedented! The time in New York "flew" for Mary. I guess the glacial pace that drove US bonkers was an illusion.
Poor Jeff is busted. It's the OTHER woman he's dating who was a teacher.
I'm with KitKat about the floating head/floating torsos panel. If this isn't a contender for Panel of the Year, I'll be deeply disappointed. It makes this past week of Mary's victory lap almost bearable. Pool party tomorrow? Or at least a new storyline? I think I actually miss Dawn Weston!
