I looked at Mary's face, and it really made me think about how quickly things can change.
...how quickly things can change? Everywhere but in the panels of this comic strip, apparently, where it takes months and months for a "storyline" to Go Anywhere, Develop, or End.ZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Let's get started on this casserole.
What's he going to do with that casserole? It's obviously not hot anymore. Is it a side dish or a main course? Should he eat some of it now, in front of Mary, or put it in the refrigerator and reheat it when Dawn comes home? What time is it there anyway? I bet that casserole will still be sitting there next week when Mary finally leave's Wilbur's condo.
Here's something that changed quickly: Wilbur added 10 years and 15 pounds from yesterday's strip to today's. Also, I don't buy his line about being so busy. His wall calendar shows the entire year, and nothing is noted on it!In addition to a nose, Mary needs better-fitting (ahem) upper-body lingerie.
I know reading Worthy Times requires a suspension of belief, but I'm having real trouble understanding how Wilbur is writing about a disaster that happened 5 years ago.
Did Mary consider the possibility that Wilbur and his daughter could have been in the middle of a 5-course meal, lovingly prepared by said daughter, when Mary barged in with her Splak casserole? "Clear the table, neighbors! What are you doing eating all those fancy, shmancy courses! Here's a one-dish meal that'll literally stick to your ribs! Come on Dawn, dear, start up the InSinkErator and help me shove down this ridiculous terducken and pomme dauphine. And what are these green things? Seriously dears, you have to rethink your diet. Who eats like this? Now, lets all grab a spork and dig in. No need for individual plates, that'll just lead to more work later. Come on, what are you waiting for? This is Mmm, mmm, good!"
What sort of eyeglasses have the blue shading that Wilbur sports in his? Now - I have some blue-tinted sunglasses, but that's another cup of kelk.
Mary's comment is a passive-aggressive warning, Wilbur! She's about to get the paper to "change" her into "Ask Wendy" forever!
