Hey, what happened to your "summer job," Dawn? It's September. Shouldn't you be in classes?
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Isn't The Bigger Question 'Hey, Whatever Happened To Sue?'"Hey, Beautiful! Dinner?Hey. S-sure!Hesitation?No reason...(right!)
No wonder the office is so deserted - there are no days on the calendar, much less appointments. Dr. Ned has another problem besides two-timing his wife.
What is this "Ned" thing? Since when does staff ever call a doctor by their first name while in the office? Doctor Howard, Doctor Fine, Doctor Howard!
Ned learned everything he knows from his mentor, Dr. Fred Letcher.-- Scottie McW.
Oh come on, folks. Why would Dawn concern herself any longer with classes and an education? She lives in the Worthiverse where all any woman needs is a man, right?
Where is the office manager when you need her?
Dawn had all day to figure out how to use that Google thing, but still doesn't know Dr. Ned's marital status. And apparently there is no one in the office except Jared, so she can't ask anyone. Unfortunately, I'm finding it hard to feel sorry for her. At least she could clue the lechy doctor in by asking him directly.....but nooooo....this is the Worthy-verse. Building suspense by using stupidity, one step at a time.
Speaking of the office manager, that was a great handoff by her, getting out of the 'late shift.'
Like father, like daughter:Wilbur - went over to Mary's often for free cookies, pie, sandwiches, etc. - worth the price of non-stop meddlingDawn - free dinners with Dr. Ned at nice restaurants (will she order lobster tonight?) - worth the price of total humiliation (again)
Tomorrow's strip with be another "Mail it in":Dawn: "Ned, I need to ask you something."Dr. Ned: "What?"(Thought bubble on both: "!")Wake me when it's Friday.
You know what you rarely see? Doctors milling around in the reception area of their practice, shooting the breeze with the staff. Usually they have two or three patients stacked up waiting for their appointments. Dr. Ned is not like other doctors!
Medical Practice does not function like any medical practice I have been involved with--and I've been involved with a lot of them over the past few years, unfortunately. But my much-loved sister-in-law was the chief nurse in a pediatric practice for 25 years, and believe me, she knew everything worth knowing about her colleagues, including the doctors. No way could Dr. Ned keep his marital status a secret.
Btw long-time: did anyone else notice the Google Doodle today in the search page? Your very own Mr. Tro-lo-lo. Sally, it was my 11 year old who pointed it out to me.
Mr. Tro-lo-lo!! Crimony, I'm sorry I missed that! I have high hopes he'll make a reprise of his Worthy Awards this year! Good catch, Dave in Parma!
