This reminds me of one of my favorite scenes from The Office:
Oh, if only the Worthiverse had a character as sweetly dumb as Michael Scott. Given what we've got to work with, though, what's Iris going to reveal next: "...and he's a recovering prescription drug addict, an ex-con, can't hold a job, is hygenically challenged, is turning into a religious fanatic, and we have exactly the same haircut!"
My hearty "ditto!" to everything @fauxprof at 10:35 a.m. wrote. The Worthiverse has an abundance of dumb characters, but none are even in the neighborhood of sweetness.Zak may really be robbing the grave - Iris is looking haggard, and her nose continues to disappear. Trying to manage her own life and Tommy Boy's is taking a toll, and arranging a Tommy-Zak play date will be fraught with danger. At least I hope so...
so Iris is 50?
Yep, Iris' and Tommy's lives aren't dysfunctional enough without adding Zak to the mix. Can't wait until Tommy and Zak meet and Iris seeks Mary's advice.
Maybe Zak heard about Tommy's prowess with accessing prescription drugs and is chatting up Iris to get to Tommy...
OK, so if Iris had Tommy when she was in college, she must have been about 19 or 20 when she had him. That would make her about 44 to 45 years old.I have to admit to having no idea where this might be going. In real life Zak would back right off. On the other hand, I did not think that the Dawn/Harlan storyline would end with the message that it's okay to date your professor as long as you do other things too. So who knows where this Zak/Iris thing is leading.
Zak's next question: Can you buy me a handle of PBR at the Food Team? I can pay for it.
