"Sure, Dad, I'll be fine. Just keep paying the rent while you're gone. Have fun. TTFN."
"Yes, Dad, let's keep in touch. You know about FaceTime and Skype, right? No? I'll teach you before you go, but first let's work on electronic banking, money transfers, autopay on rent and tuition and stuff. Gotta keep Dawnie in yoga pants and chocolate kelk cookies, right? Let's get that all set up and then you can be on your way."
It's no surprise that Wilbur and Iris ended up in Splitsville. In this corner we have hovering, smothering Iris watching her sonny boy's every move (even into the bathroom, for Pete's sake). In the other corner we have bumbling, clueless Wilbur chasing his "dream opportunity" with just a "Ta ta, see you in a year!" to his dopey daughter.Just wait until those kelk chip cookies run out. Will Dawn sign up for Mary Worth's Disgusting Casserole Delivery Service? Will Dawn spend Thanksgiving with Harlan and Alfie?
I see that this comic strip is suffering from the same malady that plagues fortunes in fortune cookies. No longer is what has been promised being delivered. Fortune cookies USED to have actual predictions of what might happen to the individual who opened them, the definition of "fortune". Now fortune cookies are full of lectures. "Eat well to live right" and stuff like that. Likewise, this comic strip has lost all pretense at providing a STORY with a plot...By definition, Wilbur's checking in with everyone in his life regarding his planned "adventure" is NOT a story. I really dislike it, because I keep thinking maybe Dawn's comment is a clue to an upcoming plot, but I know it is not...Next up, Dawn and Mary at the airport waving at Wilbur as he gets on a plane. Ho hum. Please, just let the airliner go up in a fiery ball. Just once.....
I'd bet against the plane crash, Louise, but the odds are good Wilbur will see a few floating heads outside his window once he's airborne. BTW, at first glance today, that striped gray shirt had me believing that Wilbur was visiting Dawn in prison. But they probably get better looking cookies in prison. Yeesh. The one in Dawn's hand looks like a giant hairy mole.
Do you think that Dawn may have had a lobotomy or something? She seems cheerily listless.
OK Wilbur....here's your choices: Travel the world for a year, all expenses paid or pursue a relationship with Iris and Tommy. Yeah, thought so....see you next year Wilbur.
Is it just me or does Dawn seem a bit too eager to see Wilbur go?
Chibi Dawn almost makes me miss Uncle Joe's middle-aged Dawn.Very scary.
