Interviewing survivors of horrible disasters wasn't real life. That was just silly stuff.
I've concluded that not even one of Baren Koy's characters is sympathetic and appealing. Maybe there's hope for Mr. Alora, who does all the work with nothing in return, or Aileen, whose grocery was left muffinless.
Wilbur traveled for a whole year for survival stories?!?! Was that 6 months in Antarctica and 6 months in Columbia? Where else did he go? Was it a one time thing - or was he fired (after the $20K misc. expense item from Bogota)? And is he now planning to harass or possibly kill Zak?
Go ahead, Mary. You'll be doing him a favor.Meanwhile in Beautiful Italy, Harlan is drawn once again to the Uffizi gallery, where he lovingly studies Titian's Venus of Urbino. "Reminds me of Dawn."-- Scottie McW.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled"A Year Wasted Learning Nothing Due To My Selfish Self-Pity And Narcissism, By Wilbur Weston".Whole year: disaster survivors!Yes.How rut?Real life. My own.
Great secret message today, Wanders! It goes hand-in-hand with Wilbur being a dope.
For addition to the juke box, I nominate Van Halen's "Jump." Are you listening, Wilbur?
So! This tale is about Wilbur's ennui and let down after time spent in stimulating travel? Boo hoo again. He should have brought along a kite. He had no trouble prescribing kite-flying for Dawn's funk.
...just one shove, one little shove...
I am waiting for Mary to push him and we see him hanging on a tree branch like Sarge in Beetle Bailey.I can't understand if they are standing on the edge of a cliff why aren't the strands of Wilbur's combover blowing in the breeze.
I think Wilbur's comb over may have a lot in common with Groucho Marx's mustache.
Wilbur has gone from lumpishly unattractive to downright repulsive. Of course, the pity-party attitude doesn’t help.
What mistakes have you made, Wilbur? I'd like to know. Do your mistakes include breaking up with Iris because of your Colombian giantess? How about spending a pile of money on a woman who was two feet taller than you and clearly out of your league? Falling for an obvious scam? How about frolicking on a beach in a landlocked city? Or going all angry, creepy stalker on a woman you broke up with?Let's have some details
I want to hear about Wilbur's demons. That's about the only way this plot could get interesting...

Wouldn't it be just completely worth all the suffocating banality of the last week or so if Wilbur were to say, "Ah, screw it," and execute a perfect swan dive onto the rocks below? I would buy a framed copy of that strip, and we could all get together and nominate Moy for the Pulitzer Prize for fiction and the Nobel Prize in Literature.-- S. McW.
Probably most of you won't agree, but I am DIGGIN' the oncoming barrage of platitudes!!! Wilbur's self-pity is catnip to meddlin' Mary Worth!I think Wilbur is feeling down because he's thinking, "Oops! I forgot to interview anyone at all all year! I only spent some time alone in Antarctica, getting in touch with my inner child, and then frolicking in my Speedo with that fabulous Fabiana in Bogota!"
