Well, it appears Zak has moved on, graduated and gotten a job. He must live in some sort of strange alternate universe where time actually moves forward and people stop taking history 101 semester after semester after semester.
He reminds her of the late Mr. Beedie’s lawyer. He’s looking for her to tell her that the money has run out, and she will have to get a job.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "DAVE! Oh, Wait. Wrong Sappy Chick."Away...little while!Familiar.
My first reaction to this sentence was "he reminds of Dave."
Came to make a "Dave" joke, but everyone got there first.
He reminds me of Tommy if Tommy wasn't a complete slacker long-hair who couldn't hold a job mopping floors. The similarities are uncanny.-- Scottie McW.
It’s Zak!He’s back!In a big baggy suitfrom Nordstrom’s Rack!“Hello, Iris.I’m with Giant Municipal Insurance Company now.Can I interest you in a term or whole life policy? You’ve got to protect that son of yours after you’re gone.”
Given how people's ages fluctuate from day to day, it looks like Dr. Jeff Cory appearing through my squinting eyes. Wouldn't they make a great pair? "We thought love was not for us!"What kind of soliloquy would Mary lay on us after finding out about that?!
I don't know who this guy is, but I don't think it's Zak. Zak was more freewheeling than this guy seems to be. Maybe someone else from the advanced business program at UCSR?
If it's true that "clothes make the man" Iris might want to head back to her history class, fast.
He reminds me of...David Byrne.
As the woman’s empty eye sockets turn towards the unmistakable sound of male footsteps approaching her bench, she slowly inches her foot forward to trip up her unsuspecting prey as he passes by. “I’m living in the here and now,” she thinks. “I’m here, this is now, it’s go time!”
Well, he certainly can't be reminding her of Wilbur...
Whoever he is, his briefcase came from 1970. And that suit from Robert Hall....
Robert Hall! I haven’t heard of that clothier in ages! Are they still in business?
Toots- stop making sense!
...and you may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?....and you may say to yourself, 'My God, what have I done?!'Clearly same as it ever was.....
Okay, unless Iris's eyesight is as bad as mine, this guy can't be Zak or else she would have been up and off that bench by now. He also can't be "the man of her dreams" because that would mean, with Tommy off drugs and Iris happily married, an end to Moy's Beedie stories. I can't see that happening in my lifetime.
@Delilah,I knew Robert Hall was long gone but had to look upon the details: closed in 1977 (bankruptcy).
