What a great idea, Mary. Overlooking the lights of Santa Royale, staring into the abyss, surrounded by dozens of couples holding hands and kissing, with only you for company, Wilbur is sure to feel tons better.
Not everyone at Lookout Point finds peace:
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled"It's Where I Store Surplus Muffins And Pushy Creeps".Lookout Point! View. Join me?Like.Great! Boost!Use. Thanks!
At Lookout Point, Wilbur realizes the answer to his loneliness is right in front of him...Mary herself! After Wilbur's hamhanded attempt to turn their sightseeing date into a taffy pull, Mary has her own realization. Her muffins are a lust potion! When a man and woman eat from the same batch in each other's presence, pheromones fly. Is this how the Camerons' marriage has lasted decades? What will Mary do with her newfound power? Reach new heights of meddling or give in to the temptation of tyranny? I can't wait.
Wilbur thought balloon: I KNEW it! She's in love with me! I KNEW it, I KNEW it, I KNEW it!!! She's been secretly in love with me for a while and she's chosen now as the right time to tell me. But as the man, it's my duty to make the first move. Once we get to Lookout Point, I'll take her in my arms and kiss her deeply and passionately. Oh, I can't wait!"Non-hilarity ensues. Meanwhile, in Beautiful Italy, handsome, debonair Giovanni il Truffatore invites Dawn to see the view from Punto Panoramico-- Scottie McW.
Mary’s planning on pushing Wilbur over the edge so she can take over Ask Wendy permanently.
Time to get cracking on that book Wilbur. I'm sure that trip plus Fabiana left you in debt.
Isn’t Lookout Point where Aldo’s car flew off the road — abruptly ending a storyline about a creepy, socially-retarded husk of a man who literally nobody liked? Have fun on your walk, Wilbur.
A view and a platitude will renew a good attitude! And in lieu of a platitude, a little Syliva Plath might amuse.“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy.”
Michael - my thought exactly. Perhaps that's why going there always make Mary feel happy.
A date? Mary is into Wilbur? Who knew?Also, @Sandi Ego: Sylvia Plath and amusing ... who knew?
Whoa. Judging from the look on Mary's face in the second last panel in Sunday's strip, they are both going off that cliff.
Sunday Garnet, I thought the pink thing touching the left side of Mary was an extra arm. Is June foreshadowing something? Scary....
I'm kind of wondering whether this will lead to Mary opening up to Wilbur about Ted Miller's assault. Dare I hope for an interesting or meaningful "plot"? Or maybe the conversation will just be ... muffins, Dawn, muffins, Iris, other baked goods, Charterstone gossip, muffins, Sunday summary strip? I guess we'll see ...
Ah yes, quoting that noted philosopher Zinedine Zidane, who was last seen getting ejected from the World Cup championship match for losing his temper and head-butting an opponent, thereby leaving his team a man short in the biggest match of their lives. And note the sage advice: "It doesn't pay to look back." Wow, how profound! Yeah, who would want to ever look back and learn from our mistakes.Sheesh. I'd rather see a quote from a real philosopher. Like Groucho.-- Scottie McW.
