Mary Worth 2636

I'm not sure how Derek intends to fulfill his promise never to look at a cigarette. Maybe he'll put the patch over his eyes.

His sudden visual aversion to cigarettes, however, reminds me of our oldest daughter who as a very young child would freak out if she even saw someone smoking. She'd make quite a scene. One day, when she was three, she said to me, "Cigarettes are yucky! My friends smoke cigarettes and they say, 'yuck!' John says yuck! Ashley says yuck! They just like normular food, like canola bars and juice."

Enjoy: 19
Good: 19
Love: 14
Nice: 7

Sooo...there will be no mention of the near-miraculous over-the-side rescue, and the murderous little lunge that precipitated it? All may be forgiven and forgotten between Triple E and Katie, but I don't think there's been any real reformation on the part of our sultry singer. After all, she never met Mary for the full treatment necessary for self-awareness and redemption. The next vulnerable hunk on the next cruise will still be her prey.

Wanders, I just love normular food, too! Had to laugh, my kids said all sorts of adorably hilarious stuff and I'm so glad I wrote it in their baby books for posterity.

OK, Katie, we get it. You're not going to be a shrew and a nag and a control freak anymore. And Derek? He'll be good. Hmph. This is so lopsided and annoying and I, too, can't believe the high seas drama hasn't come up in this conversation. She's still got a towel draped across her shoulders, for cripes sake.
In my world, jewelry should feature prominently in Derek's groveling apology or the lesson hasn't truly been learned.

"She's still got a towel draped across her shoulders, for cripes sake"

Interesting point. All this heartfelt camaraderie is going on, apologies left and right, and Derek doesn't notice that Katie is standing there all wet. Her railside event happened just 1/2 hour ago? If she was standing in the door towel and a bathrobe, maybe hair up in a towel, okay. Towel, disheveled hair and rain-soaked dress outfit? -- I don't think so. Even Derek would notice.

"Never look at another cigarette again"

Maybe he'll put the patch over his eyes.

Wanders, your secret message today knocked it out of the park! Too bad there’s not a Worthy Award for this category. I would nominate this one!

All these Derek mentions seem to ignore the Character Bio. there are 3 points:
1) Derek is dim
2) Derek is a hunk
3) Derek is really, really, dim

Everything follows the Character Bio.

Downpuppy, he can't be too dim-after all, he has ASSISTANTS.

The Sunday quote is by Damian Lewis. Isn't he the actor on Homeland who played Brody, the Marine/POW/Congressman who turned terrorist? Hey, a perfect match for Esme.

Katies towel smells like saltwater.

On another note, I would like you all in NYC to visit a play I am directing "The Lady of the Hall", based on Keeping Up Appearances by Roy Clarke. Here is the Facebook invite.[%7B%22surface%22%3A%22dashboard%22%2C%22mechanism%22%3A%22calendar_tab_event%22%2C%22extra_data%22%3A%22%7B%5C%22dashboard_filter%5C%22%3A%5C%22upcoming%5C%22%7D%22%7D]%2C%22ref%22%3A2%2C%22source%22%3A2%7D

I too, am annoyed that not a word has been mentioned concerning 3E's brush with death. I still find it astounding that not one soul on the ship witnessed this near mishap.

Where is 3E anyway? Perhaps she has now become "born again" and is at the ship's chapel renouncing her evil ways.

This story is like a defective firecracker. It went out with a fizzle. Katie renounces being a shrew, Derek renounces smoking and 3E renounces Derek. All we need now is Mary to pat herself on the back for making all of this happen despite the fact we barely saw her as she was too busy with towel folding.
