Careful, Libby. The last time you sat on a computer keyboard, you got kicked out of the house.
In Panel 2, she says that her bank account will recover. How is that going to happen? She's a widow with no job. Enough with the moping and self-pity. It's high time for righteous anger to kick in. I'd love to see one MW character vent in a realistic way - not just in a string of @#! characters.
@Peggy Olson, Estelle invested in an index fund with a 19 percent return, so her bank account will bounce back in no time. The fund was recommended by another of her email friends, who is the chief economic adviser to the Sultan of Brunei, so it’s a sure thing, right? Isn’t it?
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled"Cue Celine Dion".Oh, Libby! Heart's!Money takes cake!Bank account.Pride...heart![Meow!]
I’ve had many pet cats over the years, and some were very affectionate. But empathetic? Not really. The dogs were empathetic, but not the cats. On the other hand, Libby is sitting on the computer keyboard, and that is 100 per cent, totally realistic.
Moy's not giving us much to work with this week. I'm reduced to remarking that those curtains are a very attractive shade of brown.-- Scottie McW.
Wait, NOW she is concerned about the money? I thought she said she could afford it. Also, as this is Mary Worth. Losing the money shouldn't take the cake,it takes the muffin.
Why is Estelle strangling Libby? That's taking her anger out on an innocent party. And to be inappropriately serious the emotion that's missing is anger at the man who stole from her. It honestly bugs me that Estelle is not showing any anger. Even Mary was angry at Ted the Character.
@Nance, that's a matchless BFH title! We are unWorthy of your brilliance - huzzah!
Nance, thanks for this. I think even Celine Dion would be inspired to whistle something perky rather than do a tribute to this non saga. Then again, maybe that Titanic reference applies.
SATURDAYLeave it to Mary to appear in an all-purple gardening ensemble. The gloves make it look like her hands are covered in boils. If Estelle was truly grateful, she'd give Mary that purple lamp.At least Estelle's brokenhearted ice cream binge is free of calories and fat - she hasn't taken the lid off the carton. Can anyone decipher the word after "Chocolate"? It looks like "Cornolaotion" to me, and that's with the aid of a magnifying glass. Huh?
It’s Chocolate Consolation. At last, a bit of realism...
If Chocolate Consolation isn’t a real flavor (Ben & Jerry’s?) it certainly ought to be. (@KitKat, I had to blow up the image way big on my IPad to decipher the word, so don’t feel bad.)
While consoling herself with chocolate, maybe Estelle's thinking, "Maybe Arther is real. Maybe he was genuinely angry with me because he wanted to be together so badly. I should have sent him the money. You know, I'll bet it's not too late . . ."-- S. McW.
"Chocolate Consolation" -thanks, fellow Worthies! I wonder how many pints Estelle will have to consume to console herself sufficiently. BTW, I love chocolate and ice cream, but I would never buy "Chocolate Consolation" - egad.
@KitKat: My go-to flavor is Moose Tracks. It’s a universal panacea. I doubt it will make Estelle any smarter, though.
There is some great ice cream near Santa Royale: McConnell's. But "chocolate consolation"....I don't think so. No one would go through a check out lane with that.
SUNDAYIs this it? Are we done with this? If so, it's yet another rather unsatisfying ending.-- S. McW.
SUNDAYSo, Estelle is going back on the SilverDaters site? So Arthu(e)r can find another male model’s photo, call himself Davi(e)d, get out his World’s Most Loved Poetry anthology and start all over again? Libby should wash her paws of the whole thing!
Since Estelle seems to get exactly the opposite lesson from experiences that what seems logical, I expect to see her in need of Mary's meddling many times in the future. Even Wilbur was smart enough to see that when it's time to yodel about your heartache, you go to karaoke, not online...
When even Wilbur Weston is more savvy than you, you’ve got a problem, Estelle. You’re the gift that keeps on giving for Meddling Mary. Libby May run away from home.
Argh, the upper-case “May” in my comment above was autocorrect gone rogue. I intended nothing related to Brexit....
Yesterday: I expected Estelle to be singing "I'm Going to Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair", not an '80s song by The Motels.Today: Estelle doesn't learn, does she? She's back on Silverdaters and why not? She met all kinds of losers on there and got scammed by a grifter so just go back to them for more punishment.Estelle is not only a masochist, but a freaking idiot.As Libby would say: MEOW!
Instead of SilverDaters, Estelle should join SilverSneakers. Go to the gym, meet new people, make friends. You may not find the elusive “love” of which Mary speaks, but you’ll expand your horizons and feel a lot better.
