Note to self: Women love it when you play with their croutons. It is very reassuring.
Eat at Cafe, home of the constantly replenishing salad plate! The more you eat, the more it overflows the dish!Maybe Zak should take over "Ask Wendy." Does writing an advice column fit within "advanced business studies"?
When I was in engineering college, I was a ‘non-traditional’ student - i.e. another 30+ year-old woman in class with a bunch of young geeky engineers married to their calculators. It was anything in the world but enjoyable. But at least I didn’t need a fake ID to buy beer...
After following Mary's advise to Iris to spend more "Mom Time" with Tommy, he has beaten his Vocodin addiction. Now Iris shows her insensitivity to Tommy's situation by telling the cougar hunting Zak that Tommy Boy needs to get a "GET a LIFE!" There goes her Mom of the Year Award and adds Iris to the never ending list of unsympathetic characters created by the incomparably untalented KM.
What will happen next?Will Zak:Ask Iris if she wants to see his van.Continue to have lunch for the next month. HaHa.Arrange a play date with Tommy. Find out they have a ton in common and become the first gay couple in Santa Royale.
Oh, play date! Please, play date! Tommy will naturally bond with Zak, decide to also get an Advanced Business Degree at Local University and, like Zak, enjoy campus life. Another problem solved in the most idiotic way possible!As a bonus, Iris will recognize the error of her ways, give up her blossoming relationship with a much younger man and decide to wait for the return of her sandwich-loving beau.
The only thing that has the potential to be interesting in the coming weeks (or months, sigh) is a Zak/Tommy conflict. It'll peter out into a nebulous nothingness, of course, like Dawn/Harlan, but it will fill up space through the holiday season. And by that I mean Easter.
@ChinNapkinGroupie - plenty of napkins in the dispenser - none on the table :-(
Chin Napkin alert - spotted in Iris's hand, Panel 1, 12/1 strip.
Zak has his hand in the salad because Iris lost her fork. He must be feeding her. Very romantic.
Saturday What Millennial would pull out a piece of paper and a pen to get contact info? He or she would just add someone to their contacts in their phone. And, e-mail is passé for that demographic, so Zak e-mailing Iris is quaint. Attention Karen Moy: You've been spending too much time hanging around Somerset with Hanna Dingdon Hastings.I can't wait until Zak shows up at the Beedies' door with roses and a Whitman's Sampler. Won't Tommy be surprised?
Is there any possibility that Tommy will recognize Zak from the ol' cell block or (even better) as his former dealer?
Why are the ice cubes in Zak's drink sitting at the bottom of the glass? Did Iris slip him something in his drink? And why? So she can make a fast getaway?
