Dawn! I think we all felt a tinge of excitement this morning when Mary opened her door. I can't wait to find out whose breaking her heart now!
Maybe Dawn wants to leave Junior College and go to New York.BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!
Dawn Weston, and with her a new plotline! Oh, Dawn, how I've missed you, and your doomed romances, and your brutal teen angst (so rare in a 38-year-old). Welcome back, girl! Of course, shortly I'll be complaining bitterly about you, but you knew the job was dangerous when you took it.
If someone said "How good to see you!" with that expression on their face, I'd excuse myself and come back in the afternoon when their hangover had subsided.
By the looks of Mary in p. 1, she had a sleepless night.Good choice on the jukebox, Wanders.Dawn: "Do you have time to talk? I notice that you never change your hairstyle, and I never change mine. However, after all these years with the EXACT SAME HAIR, I'm getting kinda bored. Do you get bored with your hair, Mary? And with those SAME EARRINGS? Plus I always wear purple, which is also boring, and etc. etc. [ad nauseam]..."
I find Mary's Shakespearean apartment number both inspiring and disturbing.
I don't think we should let Sunday's first two panels go by unremarked upon:"So you never get tired of giving advice?""Nope, never."Could the strip be summed up more succinctly?
2B OR NOT 2B THAT IS THE ANSWER....
And we're going to get more Wilbur too. I was hoping for a new character, perhaps a golden-hearted floozy who wreaks havoc at Charterstone until her ultimate redemption.
Is that Dr. Jeff's reflection I see cowering in the mirror behind the door? Nah...........
While the prospect of a Dawn Weston story line sounds even more boring than the Olive-in-NY story line, at least we're done with Dr. Jeff complimenting Mary on her ability to give advice to people. I fully anticipated several more days of that! But it got me thinking. I don't recall ANY people seeking advice from Mary (OK, maybe Toby Cameron). Instead, she just butts in and meddles. But, what would Mary's advice be to people seeking help on typical, real life problems? For instance, imagine seeking advice from Mary because your boss is an egotistical jerk. She'd advise you to believe in yourself, eat traditional food, and always look on the bright side. Failing marriage? Believe in yourself, eat traditional food, and always look on the bright side. Voices speaking to you? Believe in yourself, eat traditional food, and always look on the bright side. Incapacitating depression? Believe in yourself, eat traditional food, and always look on the bright side. Thanks, Mary!
Maybe they'll go on another cruise on the Bosta Bonbordia!
