Good ol' James. Always starting clubs and stuff. And that crazy folding table he's always setting up in obscure places, like near the Student House. Let's see how fast Dawn can get away from this geek.
Today's full strip
The drama! The suspense! The riveting dialogue!(Game Show Contestant: Things that are missing from Mary Worth.)
James? My goodness. I'm already ancticipating the next Dawn Weston plotline, in which we will over the course of six months or so explore her romantic entanglement with Jimmie. Does poor never meet a Bernardo, a Sven, or a Boris?
Aw, c'mon, Dawn. Here's your chance to connect with another generic blond guy who looks just like all your other generic blond guys (give or take an arm). I'm sure you can find a fetching pair of purple hiking boots in preparation for the inevitable hiking accident.
I am glad to see that James has a gray book about hiking on his table, in case any prospective club members have any questions about what they are getting into.
Judging by the looks of her, Dawn could use some physical activity. She also appears to be pushing 47.Tomorrow: Dawn encounters David and Ricky Nelson setting up the stage for Ricky's performance at the Sock Hop.
Run away, Dawn! That guy walking away in panel 2 was in the hiking club and look what it did to his leg.
From the college catalogue: Clubs at Santa Royale Community College: Calculator Users Club, Surfboard Wax Reviewers Club, Art Made from Objects Buried in the Ground for More than 10 Years Club, Roller Skate Design Appreciation Club, Young Anarchists. . .Something for every interest!
I thought blue shorts guy in P2 was sporting prison tats on his calves, but I like Yahoonski's comments much better.
Hey, Dawn! Two arms!
Could be a cool battle - one-armed Jim versus two-armed Jim!
I think I recognize James as the retching railing guy from a few strips back. Note the all-blue clothing. The story will come full circle when Dawn introduces Mary to James and he remembers the nauseating dialogue she had with Jeff on the pier. Hilarity will not ensue.
Why is she blowing James off? Dawn can't afford to turn down any offers. Besides, didn't she agree to take Mary's advice and try to expand her horizons and make new friends? And now she blows it her first time out? Well, maybe she just doesn't think that purple and hiking go together.
Jame is a kindred spirit to Mary. Most people wanting to start a hiking club would use social media to promote it, but not this guy. No, sirree! He gets out the same old folding table his mother used to use for her childhood lemonade stands and plops it right there in the middle of the sidewalk. Of course, kids who are walking and texting are likely to plow right into him, which would only give him more reason to feel smug.Dawn, you won't find a better match anywhere. You and he and Mary will have such good times together!
Dawn already has the correct purple hiking outfit.http://maryworthandme.blogspot.com/2013/08/mary-worth-1659.htmlDoesn't Dawn know about the Restorative Power of Nature?or perhaps she's holding out for a Sharing Circle.
So yesterday James walked by Dawn without saying a word and now he's all like "Hey Dawn!" Maybe he thinks she's the one who stole his watch and he wants it back. Hiking? Srsly?
