Well, Japan was good to Wilbur. He lost weight AND grew more hair. Sign me up.
We still don't know how she knocked on the door. Maybe she just stood there and screamed WILBUR! until he opened up. Lucky he wasn't wearing headphones.
Mary's ghost peppers, furious at being "used up" in a lowly casserole, rise up in protest.
@fauxprof at 7:47 AM, I hope that Mary also kicked the door while screaming WILBUR! Considering how annoyed Mary seems ("I'm surprised you didn't call me"), I expected her to drop that hot casserole right onto Wilbur's bare hands.Wanders, Wilbur looks younger, too. Is the Fountain of Youth in Japan?June got Joe Giella's memo about gray books, but what in creation is depicted in the framed picture? A 1950s depiction of a flying saucer on shards of pink cellophane?
Today I'm wondering if maybe it's a litter box instead of a casserole, though I don't recall ever seeing any cats or other animals at Charterstone.
Maybe Mary's offering to Wilbur is one of those infamous "kitty litter cakes", often served to guests with a cat box scoop. Some of them look entirely too realistic and might necessitate being carried with oven mitts.
"Wilbur, I didn't know when you were coming back, but I've been keeping an eye out for you."
"MARY! This is a SURPRISE! It's unlike you to show up unannounced and bearing FOOD! I certainly wasn't EXPECTING you, notwithstanding the fact that you've been doing my job for me for several months. I HOPE you've been telling my readers that they need to spend MORE time with their kids and that the should be DIVERSE in their time management."I'm actually disappointed. I was vaguely hoping that Mary would interrupt the conjugal reunion of Iris and Wilbur.
I wonder what Wilbur will say when he discovers that Iris can't see him anymore because she has to "spend time" with her son.
What makes her think he wants a casserole, especially one that big? What if it sucks? How long do he and Dawn have to pretend they're eating that stuff? How long do they keep it before throwing it away and spending 30 minutes cleaning the dish? Couldn't she have just brought over a bottle of scotch?
Mary and Wilbur live in the same apartment complex. Perhaps even on the same floor in the same building. He was gone for what seems like months without staying in contact with her while she did his job. Then, because she's bored/just finished an awesome meddling job, she muses whether Wilbur is back - from Japan! - without her knowledge. At that point she decides to bake a casserole (not maybe an apple crumble or her famous muffins, no, A CASSEROLE!) and just traipses down to hall and shoves it in his face. Yeah, that happens every day - NOWHERE!
I think if I were going to make 2 people a casserole, I'd put it in an 8x8 pan, rather than a 9x13. Of course, we are talking Wilbur, here. I vote for Mary kicking the door with her huge shoes until Wilbur answered.
Mary had to run to Wilbur's apartment because she needs an audience for her victory laps over the Tommy thing. Normally, she'd seek out Toby, but Toby has been arrested on charges related to the menacing clown sightings all over the country. It turns out people were just seeing her clown paintings hung up everywhere and were overcome with horror.
THURSDAYMary is reflecting on how QUICKLY things can CHANGE. Really? Nothing happens quickly here in the Worthiverse. Could this be foreshadowing? Except Moy doesn't do foreshadowing. Let's just have a pool party and hit the reset button.
