Oh, good. More talking.
At last--an update on Tommy.
"We have to talk."OH NO, NOT THAT! These are the four words that fill every male with overwhelming dread, surpassed perhaps only by "You have terminal cancer."
Good thing Iris told Zak it's her on the phone. Any amount of chaos could have resulted if he thought he was talking to Purple-Haired Girl.Iris: "I'll meet you in theusual spot in the park near your house tomorrow at three. Not the usual spot in the hallway at two or the usual spot near Coffeebucks at 10 or..."Zak: "!"
@ Smarmy McWorthface. I know. When, and by whom, is is communication technique taught? "We have to talk, but not right now. (I want you to fret for 18 hours, and imagine all sorts of dread.)"
Nothing good comes after the dreaded "we have to talk". Especially in Mary Worth, where the talking is interminable and goes on for weeks without resolution.
As if these two haven't spent enough time on that park bench...It's so much a part of their relationship, all Iris has to say is "the usual place", and not only does Zak know where but WE do...
Weird. While I read today's MW, I distinctly heard the theme from "Jaws". It may be that all guys in a relationship hear that after being told, "We need to talk".
I think we're going to see Wilbur's floating head within the next couple of days. I wonder if it will be grizzled, stubbled, Wilbur, or suburban, polyester, sammich Wilbur.
Isn't it a little strange that Iris and Mary have matching pink fuzzy slippers?
Dear Wendy,Maybe you can help me figure Iris Beedie out. What kind of a person tells her boyfriend she loves him--in a beautiful, romantic foreign language--then emphasizes enjoying the present together as a couple and hugs him--then breaks up with him? What kind of a person sees her boyfriend in the hallway, then goes home and calls him, making an appointment in the future to "talk"? ... Oh, right! A BORING PERSON!I certainly hope that something family UN-friendly happened between panels in the last few days ... but I strongly suspect NOT.Signed, Frustrated Comic Strip Fan
Zak seems to be another eternal college student, wandering the campus, eating endless lunches, hitting on purple haired girls, dating students twice his age. I wonder who paid for those dates anyway...
@Anonymous at 12:41 PM, there was a BOGO deal on pink fuzzy slippers at Maisie's, and Mary and Iris split a purchase.
Zak is about to be dumped by Iris of all people. Now there's a blow to one's ego. Post dump, I hope Zak seeks out a mental health professional to help him through his pain and also determine the issues that led him to be attracted to Iris in the first place.
@KitKat - Maybe so but now that I think about it.... We only saw one slipper on Mary and now just the one on Iris. Maybe they bought just one pair and both wear an old sock on the other foot?
I'm sure Zak would approve of Iris' sleep wear. It reminds him of his mother.
Iris should get with the times, and break up with Zak by text.
