Wine for Beginners? You might have done better with this book instead:
As to the "Wine for Beginners" book, why would you bring that to work? Was it a present from Dr. Ned? Did Dawn embarass him by ordering a glass of Two Buck Chuck? Actually, I never developed a taste for wine myself. Once, when we were first married, realprof jokingly suggested we order a $500 bottle of wine at a restaurant. I countered that I'd prefer a pair of diamond earrings because my body would not eliminate those in a matter of hours. Only I couched it in less family friendly terms than that. (I got the earrings, by the way.)
Dawn could have have written "Whine for Dummies." Re her expression in p. 1, I can hear my mother cautioning, "You don't want your face to freeze that way!"Won't Sue be surprised when (if?) she comes in? And that other doctor who was so impressed with Ned's diagnostic skills. If nothing else, they'll know it's 2017.It's time for Drippy Dawn to enter Worthiverse Oblivion.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Who Is Dumber, Dawn Or Jared? Another Query From The Obvious Questions Department".OK?No. Yes.... Will!Happened?
@ fauxprof Two Buck Chuck! Ha haaaaa! I haven't heard that in a while. Dawn must have had some kind of major epiphany on her way to work because when she left Mary, she was still trying to rationalize adultering. But by the time she got there, she acted uncharacteristically non-Dawnish. Traffic must have been bad.-- Scottie McW.
Why on earth does Dawn have the book/magazine at work? Unless she is stealing it from the waiting room table.
@fauxprof Well played. :-)
That book is Dawn's souvenir of her near affair with Ned..She can look back at having learned SOMETHING from him. And it's an ongoing confirmation that Dawn can't seem to come up with ideas of her own to expand her horizons. She needs a man to point her in the direction of greater learning. Blech! At least she'll have (probably sweet) wine to drown her sorrows. And yoga.
Hey Karen Moy, if you're wondering what I'd like for Christmas, it would be that the next time we see Dawn, she's leaning up against a building in Santa Royale's seedy section, reading her "Wine for Beginners" book with a cup marked "tuition" between her feet.-hmm
"Wine for Beginners" is just June giving us an Uncle Joe moment, God love her.
My friend once treated my husband and me to a $600 bottle of wine at dinner. It was sublime. I may have held the empty bottle to my lips to try to extract the last drop.Another friend of mine produces those Dummies books. I'll suggest Adulting For Dummies, Dawn could use a guide.Poor Dawn trying to learn about wine so she can impress Ned at all those French restaurants. Hope she remembers to pack up Yachting for Beginners, Trendy Art Collecting for Beginners, and Status Symbol Automobiles for Beginners. Who needs college?
The one book Mary does NOT have on her shelves...Meddling for Beginners!
Ok, so now Dawn quits her job and also doesn’t return to college. For the next few weeks we’ll see her moping in her frilly bedroom or sprawled on the couch watching Game of Thrones, sighing that “Life is brutal!”, and various incarnations of “Reminds me of Ned.” Eventually, Wilbur will return from yet another grueling assignment of his ongoing disaster reporting and, in an effort to cheer up his moody offspring, suggest they go on a cruise. To Italy. Wait, that sounds familiar! I think we’re about to enter the Dawn Loop for the second time. And we’re trapped in it FOREVER!!!
I don't speak from experience here, but wouldn't it make more sense to clean out your desk and then break up with your boss/quit your job?
