Unfotunately, of the thousands of passengers enjoying this port of call, only Katie has to use the bathroom. It will be days before anyone notices she's missing. Things are going just as Entertainer Esme planned.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Opportunist Esme Puts Her Charwoman Past (And Stolen Universal Restroom Key) To Good Use".Hey!What the...?Help!Someone!I can'tOpen the door!
Oh, well done, Evil Entertainer Esme! If Katie isn't back on the ship by departure time, it WILL leave without her. (I've seen it happen.) The passenger is then personally responsible for getting either back home or to the next port of call on his or her own. Ah, stranded in Haiti with just a bathing suit and a beach bag. Oops, I'm burying the lead here--KM actually did something interesting!
Well, this has turned from creepy to criminal already. Does Esme think that Derek isn't going to check the ladies room after a little while? Does she think he'll canoodle with her instead of looking for his wife?Who knows? I suppose weirder things have happened in this strip.-- S. McW.
I'm with Chris Brown. If the plots are to be nonsensical, at least have them be wildly over the top affairs.
I've been checking in every day because of the commenters. You guys are great.
There once was a singer named EsmeSmitten with Derek, to Katie's dismayEsme concocted a trapAs Derek pondered a capNow poor Katie is stranded in Haiti
Firstly, I wonder how Esme knew Katie would have to go. Did Derek spill the beans about his wife's weak bladder? But more to the point, how did she manage to lock Katie in? The door opens inward, so she couldn't have wedged it shut from the outside. Did she seduce the attendant to procure the key?
I am impressed with the cleanliness of the restroom and the presence even of a working, stocked paper towel dispenser. Haven't seen such facilities at a beach side toilet before, especially not in a third world country like Haiti. Congratulations to Karen Moy on having something of substance happen on a Saturday. Made it worth my getting out of bed!
Like @Yahoonski, I wonder what Esme's Plan B was. Whatever, I expect Toby or Mary wlll rescue Katie (more's the pity!).
So, at this beach, a cruise ship just disgorged about 3000-4000 passengers who've been eating and drinking non-stop for the past day, and no one else is at the can? Cruise ships are also notorious places to get food poisoning. I'd think that the bathroom would be a popular spot. Maybe Evil Entertainer Esme planned to lock everyone else in the bathroom with Katie in as well? Being locked in a well-used bathroom in Haiti seems like a cruel and unusual punishmentI must say, I did not predict this rather odd development.
Mary’s Helpful Hint #44: Always remember to pack a can of WD-40 (or other rust-removal product) in your purse or backpack! You never know when you might need it! (Especially if you ignored yesterday’s helpful hint #43.)
Oh, this is even better than I dared hope for. And the cigarette in Evil Entertainer Esme's hand is the cherry on top. :-D
yesterday when I saw the rest room, I had hoped either Katie or Esme would have given the other a "swirly"--this is better --how about Esme having the trash go up in flames?
I think it would have been way more Entertaining if Mary got locked in there instead..I have to admit, after 6+ weeks of towel folding I'm actually looking forward to finally seeing some hijinks resembling a plot in Sunday's strip.
You know that Evil Entertainer Esme smokes menthols...
Mary's Helpful Hint #45: For those difficult times when new acquaintances on board come to you with a life-or-death dilemma, look over at your cabin mate and TELEGRAPH your thoughts to her ... "That cigarette-smoking lounge singer is behind this, isn't she? Shades of Nola Wolvenson ... To the Bat Cave, stat!" (On the way to the Bat Cave, don't forget to say ... "FINALLY! I thought he'd NEVER get around to asking me for my ADVICE!")Also, the rest room is RIGHT THERE! How are we to believe that no one can hear her? Or that no one else needs to go? (This "plot" is still AWESOME!!!)
SUNDAYToday's Boldface Haiku is titled "In Which We Learn Everything Esme Is, She Owes To The Great Mr. T."Why, phones? Ship?Katie, are?--Derek? Wrong?Mary, Toby! Wife meet!Gifts. Where be? Seen?!...Help! Someone! Open the door!
Did Derek stuff the GIFTS for his ASSISTANTS in his fanny pack> Because both his hands are empty.
I don't know, Yahoonski - maybe Derek somehow got wind of all of our negative comments regarding those tacky ball caps and decided not to buy them after all?
I'm torn on the voiceover for Sunday's so either being "Have You Seen Her" by the Chi-lites and Gene Wilder in his best Willy Wonka voice saying "Stop. Don't. Come Back."
Sunday: Is Katie stuck in another bathroom? The door is completely different from Saturday.I find this whole thing unbelievable. I ALWAYS tell my husband where I'm going so he'll know where to look for me. I don't just skulk off to the bathroom without letting him know. But then, this is Derek and Katie Hoosier we're talking about. Communication is not high on their list. Plus, who doesn't bring their cell phones? Arrrgh, I just want to punch these two idiots.Wanders, I nominate "Have you Seen Her" by the Chi-Lites for the Charterstone Jukebox.
