Hey Toby, drink some non-bottled water and bring back your own souvenir!

Meanwhile, Katie and Derek will tour the Mayan cliffs, where a shadowy figure lurks behind some rocks. A shadowy figure with a cigarette....

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "But Is There A Restroom There?"

Botanical garden!
Let's! Mexican souvenirs!

At some point this strip will collapse upon itself like a supernova. The collapse and explosion outward is building as we devolve deeper and deeper into the minutia that is Mary's life and decision making.

("Should I have water? What are the options? Tap or bottled? Spring or Sparkling?")

There's some strange symbiosis going on between Toby and Mary. Today Mary looks refreshed and more youthful, while it's Toby who is haggard and drawn. Or maybe Mary has just had a healthy breakfast (Kelk and Splak granola cereal with soy milk) while Toby has a killer hangover.

Toby wants to "bring back some Mexican souvenirs for Ian." As opposed to, I guess, Irish or Japanese souvenirs.

@Nance, "But Is There A Restroom There?" is hilarious!

Mom, are we there yet?

Seriously, I am so bored with this story. I could not care less whether Derek smokes or hooks up with Esme. Why couldn't Toby and Mary have run into Helen Clark instead?

@Anonymous 11:32 AM-even Avocado Aggie would be good. She could go berserk because the bathroom is locked.

Fauxprof, I like your idea. Toby as the Picture of Dorian Mary, and Mary as her vampiric Svengali overlord. Seriously, some form of youth-parasitizing codependency is the only conceivable reason for them to hang out together.

Ha! Ha! From Wednesday’s Comics Curmudgeon:

"I know we’re pretty deeply committed to the Katie-Derek-Esmé love triangle plot right now, but, you know, if Toby were to accidentally purchase a cursèd Mayan artifact as a souvenir and bring it back to Charterstone, leaving a trail of gruesome, mysterious deaths her wake, I certainly wouldn’t object."
