Trust me. This story ends with Toby hiding out in the Hoosiers apartment, chain smoking Pall Malls.
Mary: "Get in each other's way? Never, dear friend!"Toby: [Locks eyes with Mary in a long deadpan stare]Mary: "Oh."-- S. McW.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Count The Bags In Panel Two: Hint--Not Four".Good! Luggage!Yes! Balcony. Not way!Never!
Why is Toby so delighted that their luggage was delivered? A fist pump and an emphatic "Yes!" - ?? Did she expect to never see their luggage again?Toby better not read too much into Mary calling her "dear friend." Being Mary's dear friend didn't do anything for Dear Old Shelly Cohen. Or for Jeff, for that matter.
The cabin steward will leave your luggage inside the cabin, not out in the hall. Oh, heck, I'm bored with pointing out the discrepancies. KM and June will continue to get it wrong. I wonder if it will rise to the sheer lunacy of Joe's putting a chainlink fence on the lifeboat deck during Dawn and Wilbur's unfortunate attempt at an ocean cruse. Let the meddling games begin.
The only thing more boring than taking a cruise is watching other people taking a cruise!ZZZZzzzz!
fauxprof, I think it depends which cruise line you take. I seem to recall our luggage being left in the hallway when we did a quickie Carnival cruise to Mexico. Which we will never do again. On Silversea they have butlers who will unpack for you. Toby can be the butler on this cruise.
Mary didn't know what the accommodations were until Toby told her at the door? I don't remember Mary ever being so trusting.
@fauxprof: The luggage in the hallway bothered me when I saw it. Someone might just be tempted to use the "five-finger discount" with Mary's and Toby's bags!Helpful Hint #7: "If your roommate seems overly needy and starts calling you 'dear friend,' just yell 'Outta my way!' and paint a bright red line across the middle of the suite! Don't forget to make sure that the door to the balcony is on your side! ... Red paint is available on the Lido deck for a mere $35.00 a can!"
I hope there's space enough and that neither one of them snores or sleepwalks or has night terrors or likes to sleep with a light on or needs two hours in the bathroom every morning or is extra gassy or....
In yesterday's first panel, Mary inadvertently reveals her future epitaph:"I was right."
If the Glorious Plateless Buffet was any indication I would guess the cabin consists of a couple of dirty mattresses on the floor and a couple of empty orange crates for chairs.
