"This isn't what it looks like. What I'm really doing is resisting the urge to smoke cigarettes!"
At one time, a twice-pierced earlobe would have been a sign of moral degeneracy in the worthiverse. But Katie is a "good" character, with a meddle-worthy flaw (nagging). Besides, she wears chaste little pearl buttons in those piercings.
@fauxprof at 8:52 a.m., you have an eagle eye and good insight. Katie's pearl earrings could have been borrowed from Mary, that paragon of virtue.I wish Katie would ask Derek what it is since he says it's not what it looks like> Practicing CPR in case the ship springs a leak?Perhaps Esme can launch into her version of "I Cain't Say No."
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Katie Sees The Error Of Her Ways--Nagging And Short Hair Don't Amount To A Hill Of Beans On This Crazy Cruise".Gasp!Katie!Not looks!
Katie, this is Entertainer Esme's twin sister, Dr. Ozme, who's helping me quit smoking. She was therapeutically drawing the smoke-craving cells from my airway. It was going to be a surprise. -- Scottie McW.
I really, really love the smirky look Entertainer Esme is giving Katie. Mrowr! Fssst! Fssst! Guess a MW catfight is too much to hope for.
And Katie will run away and cry and Mary will find her. Or she'll run straight to Mary's cabin. And then Toby will make a beeline for Derek to see if she can get some of that smoking cessation action.Just when it's getting good I'm leaving on vacation and may not be able to follow along with this thrilling and unexpected plot twist. My husband and I are taking our 15 yr old son to Scotland where I will fulfill my childhood dream of seeing the Loch Ness Monster. Will post my photo of her when I return :)
Katie has clearly been modeled of Julie Andrews, circa Sound of Music.My first thought was similar to that of Scottie McW.: Esme is only bring helpful, sucking the smoke out of Derek's mouth.
Looks like Derek will be progressing from cigarettes to Vicodin very soon.
@Sandi Ego at 10:27 AM, your vacation sounds fantastic, albeit not a Bargain Cruise Lines voyage. If you are so inclined, ask the Scots you meet if they know about Professor Ian Cameron of the University of Santa Royale and his AstroTurf sports jacket.
I believe the last time I saw this plot was a 1950's era romantic comedy. "Honestly, Katie! It's not what it looks like. She forced the kiss on me. I really didn't want her to!" I believe Doris Day and Rock Hudson starred.
If I were Katie, I'd be tempted to say, "If it isn't what it looks like, then why are your hands still on her arms?" But then, I've never been as clueless as Katie, so I guess I don't know how her mind works.
@Sandi Ego: If you are in Edinburgh, give Henderson's Salad Table a try. It's vegetarian heaven.And if you see an elderly white-haired lady, dressed in lavender, and nodding sympathetically at everyone who speaks to her, that's not Mary MacWorth. It's the Queen!!!
