"Tossing my pills from five inches in front of my mouth -- with my eyes closed! I still got it, baby!"
Today's full strip
Wow, this is already in close competition with "Auuugggghhh!!!" For Panel of the Year.Tommy, Tylenol is all you need to heal a broken heart.http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/05/fashion/breakups-rejection-neuroscience.html?_r=0
Did we really need the accompanying caption?(read in Golf Channel Commentator's Voice) Tommy increases his dosage. Most people realize that the Standard Vicodin Dosage is not 3-4 pills at once. Geeze.
Tying in with yesterday's discussion, today's "Peanuts" strip (in the Plain Dealer) closes with Charlie Brown's open-mouth wailing of "AAUGH!!" because the little red-haired girl is moving away. I'm immensely relieved that Charlie Brown is NOT popping Vicodin. Charlie Brown and Tommy Beedie, both unlucky in love.Okay, how many days until Tommy is on Santa Royale's version of Skid Row, with battered trash cans, blowing rubbish, and a guy wearing a backwards ball cap leaning against a building? By Friday?
Oh, wow, who could have seem this coming? Besides all of us, that is? How interesting that Tommy's Vicodin comes in capsule form. It will make things so much simpler when he decides to snort instead of swallow.
Okay, so when did Vicodin become available in capsules? Those look more like Contac cold capsules to me. Shouldn't Tommy be saving the pseudoephedrine for his meth?
@fauxprof - ah, great minds!
I see Tommy is taking the Wonka brand Vicodin.
At whom will Tommy's drug-addled rage be directed? Mom is the obvious target, but for some reason I picture a be-robed Ian Cameron, poolside, his face stricken in a combination of shock and anger, as Tommy makes the scene at a Charterstone cookout in cutoff jeans and a bottle of gin.
Yesterday’s and today’s panels are in close running for Panel of the Year. I can’t decide which one I like better.
I knew this couldn't end well for Tommy, but skin turning blue and aging 15 years were not the symptoms I expected.
I told him not to mix Vicodin & Smurf Vitamins!
This shows us how Dawn's take on relationships is far better than Tommy's - just hang out with people and sort of date but don't get too close or you might get your heart broken. Did Tommy actually ever go out on a date with Tina? Or did they just date on the clock?
Yesterday and today's panels: Never mind panels of the year, heck, these are panels of the century!I'm glad I wasn't the only one wondering why Tommy's taking Tylenol. I had Vicodin for dental surgery it didn't look anything like what Tommy's taking. In addition, my doctor didn't prescribe two pills twice a day. It was once a day WHEN NEEDED. Plus I wasn't given a hundred bottle jar like Tommy. I think someone needs to contact DEA STAT.
Yikes, that second panel is pretty vivid. Ms. Moy and Uncle Joe...no Comics Code Authority stamp of approval for you!
Tommy, if it's pain relief that you want ... DAWN awaits!!!
What was the name of that "walk in clinic", again? Was it something like Pills 'R Us?
WEDNESDAY@Toots McGee. You're close. It was Ready Med, as in "we're ready with the meds, no matter what ails you". In the meantime, Tommy is blissfully relaxed. Maybe if he changed out of that filthy T-shirt, took a hot shower, and got a haircut, he'd feel even better!
WednesdayThank goodness for the new apartment - the Vicodin might not have helped so much if Tommy was still sleeping on that love seat.Why is Mary wasting time reading a letter while someone who's DOWN THE HALL requires her intervention? Super Mary rescued Olive, why can't she burst in to the Beedies' apartment and swipe that bottle? I guess Mary doesn't have the deep connection with Tommy that she has with Olive.
Tommy, darling, I'm glad you feel relaxed. That's how I always feel after my second margarita, poolside at Charterstone. Come join me! DAWN is often with me! She's a blast! You'll LURVE her!Also, why are so many people suggesting that Tommy get a haircut? Sheesh! Do we need to revive the flower power movement again? Tommy's hair is better than Dawn's steel helmet ... er, "fashionable" hairdo.I'm glad Mary is going to "help" the guy on the road to alcoholism, since she was so helpful to former drug addict Tommy when the doctor was prescribing him Vicodin. She didn't say ONE WORD about it! Her advice to the divorced dude with the liquor fix will probably be something along the lines of "Time heals all wounds. Please be patient."ARGH! @#$%!!!!
WEDNESDAY This storyline is destined to be the "Hamilton" of the Worthy Awards!
Maybe mommy dearest is playing a fast one on Tommy and actually switched out his prescription for plain old Tylenol. Can you say 'placebo effect'? Wouldn't that be a hoot!?
THURSDAYMary's the one who's going to need painkillers if she continues with that outlandish posture at her (equally outlandish) computer.
THURSDAYSo tomorrow will Mary continue, "Some people cope with booze. Some people cope with drugs. Some people cope by doing yoga. Some people meddle..."?
Nothing promises excitement like an into that begins "Mary continues reading..."
OMG! I was kidding yesterday about Mary's lame advice being platitudes along the lines of "live and let live," etc., but HOLY COW!!! now she's really giving that advice! YOWZA!
Thursday's strip: Mary has grown man-hands in the first panel! Also: where can I get a keyboard like hers? It'd be fun to switch out the old QWERTY's in my office.
Wha??? "Get outside assistance"??? I thought that was what I was doing!!! Thanks, Wendy ... NOT!
