Mary Worth 2983

At last, something about this story is hasty. We're really moving now!

Otto Operation introduces Mary to his pug, Annie. He adopted her at the doggie orphanage.

TimP said...

Wait!, Mary exclaims. She hadn't finished feasting on Wynter's suffering. But, it was too late, he had escaped her grasp. For now. Only for now. Time to bake some muffins, the implacable meddler surmised.

Incontinence is a drag. Oh! RW-P beat me to it!

Silly Mary has forgotten that Judge Judy is about to start!

He can't do this? Do what? Go on living?

Next stop: Lookout Below Point. Better get Dr. Sweatervest on the horn . . . STAT!

Can't! Go!
Wait!

I'm convinced Karen Moy wanted to do a story about the loss of a spouse and grief but was afraid she would absolutely botch it. So we have a pet death treated poorly.

MIDNIGHT GRAVE ROBBERS SPOTTED AT SANTA ROYALE PET SEMATARY

William Burke and William Hare, sematary night watchmen, watched as an elderly couple armed with trowels spent several hours disinterring a dog known only as “Bella”. Hare’s description of the couple referred to Spencer Tracy and Betty White, two people of whom this reporter has never heard.

When asked why he did not try to stop them, Burke merely said, “They had trowels. And they toddled away very fast, with the poor wee doggie in the old man’s arms.” Santa Royale Police Canine Squad is attempting to contact a Mr. King, the owner of the sematary, said to be a reclusive resident of Maine. It is thought that King may be able to provide records of any animal buried in that plot, but the haphazard arrangement of the plots might preclude any ultimate identification of this particular “Bella”

Further complicating the situation: Bella is the number one most popular name for female dogs, according to the What to Name Your Bitch Association. This poor wee doggie may never be identified.

Oh @meg, you are inspired!

If Operation Otto had been walking an Irish Wolfhound instead of a pug with crazy eyes, Saul might not have beaten such a hasty retreat, For tomorrow I’m hoping we’re treated to the sight of the pug flying down the path with its teeth dug into Saul’s tuchas. Oy vey!

If Old Man Wynter is going to run away in grief every time he encounters a dog he will get fit as a fiddle in no time.
Nance, very funny!
Meg, the WTNYBA is awesome!

Oh, now I get it. When Wynter says he can't do this, he means he can't spend another second with Mary.

Funny stuff, Meg!

One generally makes an "exit," hasty or not, from someplace that has an exit, e.g., a room, a house, a store, a car. But where is Saul exiting from? Further, being afflicted with some of the same ailments as Saul, I'm certain that he is not so much interested in exiting from a non-existent exit as much as hastily entering an entrance or two.

I have a feeling Mr. Winter's reaction is an allegory to represent us all. And what's with the name "Winter"? I feel it's a premonition for when this gawdawful storyline will conclude.

Wanders!! So good to see you back. Glad you took a needed break. Let's face it, this storyline is enough to have us all seeking a hasty exit from the Worthiverse.

So, the sight of other dogs is more than Saul can bear? I wonder if he had to lock himself away after Mia died, because the sight of other humans remind him too much of Mia.

Nance, meg, TimP, everyone, great comments!

At least if Saul is running away from Mary, we should be spared from hearing him go on and on about Bella the Angel for a while. I get the feeling that pug is looking at Saul and thinking, "Man, this guy really needs to get a grip!"

meg said...

Do we know for certain that Mia was a human being, and not (shudder) a dog?

Do you want to talk about it? DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT???? Good grief, all they've been doing for the past two weeks is talking about it. Sheesh!

Saul: Why yes, Mary, I'd love to continue our chat. That's why I'm running away from you, back to my apartment, hopefully in time to slam the door in your face.

Mary will go to her apartment, pull a tray of salmon snacks out of the freezer, go to Saul’s apartment, and carefully push the snacks one by one under the door.
