Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"Playing The Part Of O'Scarlett Hara In The New Drama Dregs Of Good Beers Will Be Brandy Buzzkill".

Left us fifteen.
Pay bills!
And, scarred!
Never again!

OMG, just grow up, Brandy. Or use Mary's advice about past memories: If you don't like the memories from the past, just ignore them and they will go away, or something dumb like that.

You can have my cookie, Wanders. Personally, I find those "milky" tears very unappetizing. I don't know who took over the coloring after June's husband quit (or got fired - anyone know?) but why can't the tears just be clear? Why color them in white? Yuck....

Tommy will now be completely honest and straightforward and humbly tell Brandy all about his past. Naw, I’m kidding! He’s going to lie, prevaricate, obfuscate and generally misrepresent himself. Once she finds out (and she will) there will be an ugly tangled mess—which Mary will sort out with a few platitudes.

Brace yourselves, friends, this is going to take months. We may still be at it by Thanksgiving, maybe even Christmas. But wait, there’s a silver lining. Once Tommy and Brandy are back together and get married, according to the immutable laws of the Worthiverse, We Will Never See Or Hear From Them Again! Now, if it can just be a double wedding with Iris and Zak, we’ll be rid of the Beedie forever.

Who the heck uses a term like "good work?" I would have said "We found good jobs." Google translate fail once again for KM.

Fauxprof, even better is that Wilbur finds a new girlfriend while singing karaoke, Dawn and Harlan return and they all get married as well and we will never see them again. That would be the best present ever!

Tommy's next line of inquiry should be to find out more about the traumatic deaths of seven-eighths of Brandy's childhood pet hamster family.

I like the stricken look on Tommy's face. He might be 26 in human years, but in Beedie years, he must be about 16.

Here's some tips for all you single people reading Mary Worth:

1) If you're dating someone and they cry in public during the second sentence of a topic - they're emotionally unstable. Consider exiting as quickly as possible.

2) Stop reading Mary Worth and go outside.

Ugh, those tears make me squirm. They remind me “A Clockwork Orange.” Don’t ever draw those again, June.

I also wondered about Brandy and her mother finding “good work.” What the heck does that mean? I doubt it was “good works,” as in charitable service. And what kind of “good job” did a teenager find? Working as a cashier at Freda’s seems to be Brandy’s idea of a successful career. Maybe Tommy can introduce her to Iris, who can explain how taking perpetual classes at Santa Royale Community College and Sort-of University leads to bigger and better things, I.e., the good life with a millennial millionaire.

"The course of true love never did run smooth." Platitude or truism? It definitely applies here! (We're reading A Midsummer Night's Dream in English class, and Shakespeare made me think of Tommy and Brandy. (Of course!)

Did Brandy (what a fine girl) say *sigh* out loud?
