Mary Worth 2629

Mary offers excellent advice! The only problem is that she's basing it on faulty information. I think Derek should probably "review past interactions" one more time and see if he has anything else to add, like "Esme is a goddess, and she kissed me on the veranda!"

"And we sang show tunes in between smokes". Let's not forget that.

I think Mary should advise Derek to "make a list of the pros and cons" and give it to Katie. It's not going to help, but it will be funny to see her reaction.

I am lost for an explanation of the following: Evil Entertainer Esme falls overboard. Katie saves 3E. No one sees this insane interaction, no one comes to get Derek, Katie doesn't go look for him using the fish pattern on the carpet to tell him what almost happened to his muse. Why is Derek staring at pictures of people that God only knows what happened to them (were they lost on the Titanic, the Lusitania-what is the story with the pictures?) Has KM EVER been on a cruise and know how things work on one?

Whew, I need to lay down. I'm reading way to much into this and it's too early for that.

Yeah, Derek is in denial about the nature of his "friendship" with Entertainer Esme, who not only sings but dances too.

And Mary really whiffed on her first crack at advising Derek. I think things are already pretty clear to Katie.

Friends, entertainers. Smokes.
I...see. Found out?
Smoking! Friendship nothing!

I think Derek should have been studying the fish carpet, rather than those silly pictures on the wall.

Wow, Derek really is a dope.

The picture gallery/studio on some cruise ships is apparently a real thing. It displays the work on the ship's photographers and people can buy photos.

Where will Derek and Katie go on their next vacation? Another cruise? Unlikely. Las Vegas? Probably not. How about Santa Royale in a Charterstone AirBnB? Mary could be the tour guide/chaperone to keep things under (iron-fisted) control - Derek does seem to need supervision.

Sure Derek and Esme were kissing on the veranda, but it's not what you think it was!
Katie needs to get out now while she's young. Derek has an addictive personality and is way too easy to tempt into illicit behavior. He struggles with personal responsibility and the truth. Bad combination.
Katie - borrow Toby's ipod and queue up I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor.

For personal counseling sessions like this, you'd think Mary would suggest that she and Derek the Drek adjourn to a more private place instead of gabbing while staring at the photo wall.

If you want to be a friend of Derek, smoking is a big plus.

You must remember this: a kiss is just a kiss. A cig is just a cig. A fundamental meddling try...will make you cry.

Wanders, I re-read your caption and thought - she kissed you on the veranda? I thought she kissed you on the lips!
My grandpa would've appreciated that one.
