Oh, come on, Toby. You aren't that bad.
Mary will do all she can to kill Old Man Wynter with kindness. If kindness doesn't work, she'll push him down the stairs.
Again, I am loving says-whatever-comes-into-her-head Toby. I imagine that the reason she's spending so much time with Mary is that Ian can't stand to be around her when she's on a muffin high.As for Mary, whenever one feels the need to point out to people, even idiots like Toby, that they are acting honorably, it's a sure sign they're doing it wrong.
Sticking your nose in where it doesn't belong, being a pest, and generally bothering people who want you to leave them alone is challenging and honorable. It's the right thing to do. Mary's sure changed her tune. She didn't think it was so kind and honorable when Ted Miller persisted in being nice to her.-- Scottie McW.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled"A Visit To The Advice Machine".Friendly disagreeable?Challenging honorable.Right thing.Bigger person!
Mary is despicable. I had to say it. She also seems more robotic than usual.
Being kind could be found in letting Mr Wynter live his life, greeting him in a friendly manner when you see him, not gossiping about him, not trying to force yourself into his life and respecting the fact he doesn't want to eat your muffins.
Oh, @Tim, how silly. An attitude like that is why you don't have a Comic Strip or a cadre of Loser Friends who look to you for scary food and hackneyed advice.
Mary may need to take out her window telescope and journal to monitor Mr. Wynter's movements and assess his situation more closely. Then the ambushes will begin. Mr. Wynter, you better prepare for a multi-directional assault coming very soon. Your dog is not safe either, not in the least.
I am in awe of the off-the-scale snark. I hereby diagnose all of you with the newly-labelled DSM-VI condition, Snarkorrhea (it replaces the previous under-recognized diagnosis known as Mary Worth Reactive Psychogenic Emesis syndrome).I can't think of anything to add, other than I suspect that salmon squares for Bella will likely form part of Mary's stalking and personality reshaping strategy.

Mary is acting like a female Aldo Kerlast by thinking that Mr. Wynter wants and needs her companionship. I can't wait for Wilbur, Chinbeard and Toby to stage an intervention and warn her to stay away from him. I would love for him to take out a restraining order on Mary as well.
Actually, being kind to people who aren't nice can be fairly easy and often makes you feel superior in a very smarmy way. It's being kind to the people who are emotional vampires, the ones who need attention all the time, that's hard. Or so I've found.
"Snarkorrhea"!! A condition whose sufferers are addicted to commenting on irrelevant comic strips, causing hysteria that results in coffee coming out of their noses. No known cure.
