Mary Worth 2521

Oh, I don't know. See if your son has any left-over Vicodin and give that a try. He seemed to think it was pretty good after a break up.

"Something special"? For what, a month? They never even did it. In fact, as far as we know, they had only one kiss.

This would have made sense in the 1600s. Or 1950s.

Mary: What you need Iris, is a change of scene. Take a little vacation. Mr. Allora can put down food and water for Tommy and take him out for a run in the park twice a day. I really enjoyed my stay at the Pax Wellness Resort. Or, I hear Antarctica is lovely this time of year.

"I'll never feel as happy, relaxed or free as when I was with him! I even forgot that I had a son!"

I also thought that Iris is exaggerating, but maybe she and Zak did a lot of other things between strips:
Hot-air ballooning
Riding roller coasters
Gamboling on hillsides
Tag-team cake decorating
Date Night at Food Team

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Iris Is Still On A Crying Jag And Behind Symbolically Grey Streaked Glass".

Yes, Special! Feel.
Happy, relaxed, free...him!

Sheesh, Iris, get over it! maybe Dawn has a deadbeat friend you can go to Starland Vocal Band concerts with.

I don't know, Nance, but I suspect whoever does the lettering has taken offense at your boldface haikus and is trying to thwart you by piling on with more and more boldface syllables every day. You may have to move to boldface limerick, or, if the trend continues, perhaps even boldface sonnet.

Nance said...

@Yahoonski--I love a challenge.

Having said that, let me just state For The Record that I know my haiku are not Pure Haiku in the classical sense (three lines; 5-7-5 syllable count; the subject being primarily nature). I'm using the term Haiku very loosely. And sort of Ironically.

But heaven help us if we ever have to move to the Boldface Sonnet. Especially if its subject is Iris. ZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

@Nance, you could start your own line of greeting cards with these!

It looks like Iris realizes she's stuck with the mayonnaise walrus and her totally useless son.
