Mary Worth 2702

By all means, Dawn, please, tell us what happened! We'd all like to know. Maybe you could make your account even more exciting by using a series of flashbacks. This should be good.

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Because What's Life Without The Recap/Victory Lap At Charterstone?"

Okay. Glad!

So, the challenge for Dawn now is how to work her "friend's" problems into her story..Somehow I don't think even Mary will buy the notion that Dawn left her job because she was so revolted by what happened to her "friend"... And hey, Mary, how about giving Dawn the phone number for the EEOC since what she experienced at work was a textbook case of sexual harassment?

So I'm confused: are we talking about Dawn or her "friend' now.

I'm also impressed with Mary's Benjamin Button-esque metamorphosis as this storyline has progressed.

Dawn could use a bit of advice from Elizabeth Taylor:

“You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That’s how I’ve done it. There’s no other way.”

“Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.”

@Dave in Parma: I thought the same thing about Mary. When JB took over, Mary was looking as old and decrepit as Aunt May in Spiderman. Now she's fresh as the morning dew. I think she has a painting in the closet that is aging rapidly.

As for Dawn, she looks Mary's true age (around 160.) Wow, she only went on three lousy dates at dubiously named French restaurants, made out once or twice and this is how she reacts??? She didn't even look this bad when Dave dumped her! As to quote Medical Assistant Jared: Sheesh! Life is brutal indeed, especially when it comes to Dawn, who falls in love as many times as I change my clothes. (Which is daily BTW, lest anyone think otherwise!)

If Dawn's slovenly appearance is any indication, she doesn't seem to be taking the breakup well. Who can blame her after a love connection that resulted from two dinner "dates" and a kiss? I can only imagine Dawn's reaction to the breakup of a serious long term relationship. Of course, that will never happen as I doubt anyone could stand her for that long.I do fear that Dawn is destined to at least another decade as a student as it turns out that adulting wasn't as much fun as anticipated.

Regina and Dave, I like to think that Mary is some kind of meddling vampire a la The Picture of Dorian Grey. With every meddle she saps more youth and vitality from Dawn and Wilbur to prolong her unnatural eternal quasi-youth.

You know that's not a muffin pan, right? And what happened to the cream cheese frosting?

Ha Dr. Chinbeard! Well stated!
