Oh. It's still this story. I didn't realize.

Looks like Flora and Fauna just walked in.

I wonder what Zak and Iris are going to buy at Ricks? Counterfeit Nike Air Jordans like the ones Wilbur is buying? A new shirt for Zak so he doesn't have a matching shirt like Wilbur? Mosquito repellent? Batteries for something naughty?

I don't think Wilbur and Zak have formally met. (Too lazy to look back and see.) Well, I can imagine what will happen "Wilbur, I'd like you to meet my hot young boyfriend Zak. He's the founder of the game Zakis. He's going to be the next Mark Zuckenberg." Wilbur: "Will he testifying before Congress? I thought he was a drug dealer." Iris: :At least he's not crying in the shower singing Country and Western songs." Wilbur: "How did you know that?" Iris: "That busybody Mary told me. Comon Zqak, those batteries aren't gonna buy themselves." Zak "Ha ha. So long baldy."

I look at my wife the same way when we go to buy shoes. "I love you so much! I don't care the dog chewed your third pair of $100 Danskos!"

I see Wilbur chose the Ekin Earth Danroj shoes, with the famous upside-down Swoosh. It occurred to me that my womens’ size 10 New Balance shoes come in a really enormous box as compared to...oh, no. I’m not going down that road. Very family-unfriendly.

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"In Which We Hope The Boldface Haiku Is Prophetic And Wilbur's Card Is Declined, At Which Time Zak Pays For His Shoes, Thus Making His Humiliation Complete".

Pay...
Oh no!

“Oh no!” Yep, exactly.

OH NO??? OH YESSSSSSS!!!

Emphatically YESSSSSS!!! Two earth-shaking plot developments in one week! This must be unprecedented. We're in uncharted flora here.

Unlike most of the good folks here, I love Iris, and the whole Zak Studmuffin thing just makes it so much better.

Meanwhile in Beautiful Italy . . . aw, who cares? IRIS AND ZAK ARE BACK, BABY, AND WILBUR'S GETTING A FACEFUL OF IT!!!!

Wilbur is gonna a whole box set of country music cd's to get through this one!

Vince said...

On second thought, I'll just skip paying for them and head for the front door.

Yahoonski said...

Do you suppose we could start a GoFundMe page and raise enough money to bribe Moy into dropping the whole Wilbur thing? It might be worth a try, because otherwise I fear this is moving toward a reconciliation with Iris. The horror.

I think Regina is odds-on favorite for Coffee-Spitting-Comment of the Day with "Flora and Fauna."

Regina Wolfe-Parks said...

LOL thanks Yahonski. I was the deletion above mine because stupid spellcheck spelled Flora Lorna. I think my spellcheck is as confused as the rest of us.

Don’t worry, Wilbur — they didn’t see you. Nobody sees you.

Also, they can’t take their eyes off each other. Ever. EVER.

LouiseF said...

From the Forlorn Recycled Plots Department, didn't we see Dawn (Wilbur's spawn) in Food Team, encountering HER ex "Dave" with his new squeeze, strategically posed in front of the produce, thus leading to many days on the couch asserting that "Life is Brutal" as she binge-watched "Game of Thrones" and Wilbur finally booking them both into a trip to Italy and an ill-fated cruise?? So, is Wilbur's next move to go home and drown his sorrows watching Netflix until Dawn e-mails him and suggests he join her in Florence in front of Carlo Bronte's "Flora: the Divine Patroness of Gardens" statue where Wilbur will muse, "Reminds me of Iris"...

True Standish said...

Oh, NO!!! They skipped the part where Wilbur is waited on by the store staff! I really wanted to see that!!!

"OH NO! ... well, that's always my reaction whenever I see Zak and Iris!

Re: Wanders's comment that it's still THIS story: It's even more confusing for me, since right now I'm also reading the storyline where Zak and Iris are just getting together and Wilbur is traveling. I looked at today's comic and thought, "What the..?" I thought Wilbur was in a metal shack in Antarctica!"

@fauxprof, it's a good thing that box isn't any bigger, or Wilbur would have a hard time holding it with those tiny, tiny hands.

You really need to check this out. It's Wilbur all the way.

It will be worth your time.

LouiseF said...

Chin Napkin, you have hit the Wilbur comparison dead on, including the startling resemblance between Mr. Cellophane and Wilbur. And in this year of 2018, the chance that anyone would even know what "cellophane' IS is so small as to also be infinitesimal.

Come on, you guys. Are you telling me you don't LOVE those silly pasted-on grins our love birds are showing, or the fact that neither ever looks where they're walking because their eyes are locked on each other's, just like their arms are locked around each other?

You can't change it, so embrace the utterly stupid hilarity of it all!

It would be even better if Iris was wearing a 4 carat emerald ring.

I can hear Wilbur's Life Coach now, "Weston, hit the shower!"

I hope Moy didn't read your secret message, Wanders. I am totally on board with Scottie McW. and I am thrilled to see Iris and Zak again! I also hope that Anonymous @3:01 is right and that Iris will be sporting a huge engagement ring. The only thing better would be if Wilbur channels Tom Brady and chucks that shoebox at Zak's head.

I do not want to see Wilbur do the Mr Cellophane hip action.
And god yes, Iris should be wearing an emerald ring!

Of all the shoe stores in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.
