"And what I wanted was MORE French food."
"My wife doesn't understand me! She won't go to strangely named French restaurants with me, unlike you, who'll go anywhere and eat anything. Which reminds me, you did say you're currently living alone, right?"
"Wise men say only fools rush in"
Oh, so now suddenly I'm the bad guy? Eeewwww, slimy Ned cheated on his wife and lied to his girlfriend, he's such a creep. Well you're not perfect either, Toots. Those nose hairs could use a little lawn maintenance. No, wait, I didn't mean that. Can we still have se . . . uh, probably not. Hey, you're beautiful when you're angry! Does that help? No? Aw crud, why does everything happen to me?-- Scottie McW.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Stop Me If You've Heard This One."Curious. Into it...Help love. Met, more.Lied! Divorced!
No way!?! I didn't see this coming at all!Wouldn't it be fun if Mary decided she'd be ok bring the other woman?
Well, yes I'm married in the sense that I have a wife at HOME, but I am definitely divorced from my former WORK wife.
The dialogue from this story arc must have been lifted from a really bad 60 year old romance novel. News flash, Karen--nobody says 'My Lovely', or seriously reminds their partners of their wedding vows in conversation. Does anyone in the Mary Worth organization ever embarrassed about how incredibly trite their product is?
Is anyone, I should say.
I think it would have been much more interesting to have Dawn find out about Dr. Ned's marital status by running into Mary in the hallway outside Wilbur's condo. Witnessing Dawn and Dr. Ned in a passionate embrace, she could have said, "Oh how nice to see you again Dr. Fletcher. Please give my regards to Mrs. Fletcher won't you? I've missed seeing her at the hospital where she and I volunteer, but I can certainly understand why she hasn't been able to help out lately. When is the baby due again?"
