Mary Worth 3152

Remember two years ago when Dawn worked a summer job and ended up having an almost-affair with her married boss? I don't blame her for not wanting a summer job anymore.

I just got back from a five day canoe trip. BOOM! Dawn shows up om Monday after a week of indigestion at the Bum Boat. When we last left her she was clubbing in Italy. What happened with her art teacher? I expect a week's (mary) worth of daily recaps!

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"The Westons Cannot Be Tamed Nor Their Wings Clipped".

Alone. Own his.
Break.
Free time refreshed ready.
Freedom whatever!

In other words, "No, thanks, Mary. I'd rather be alone than spend more time with you."

KitKat said...

@Nance, you get time and a half today for referencing those weirdo doves in your BFH title.

I wonder if this interlude with Dawn and Mary is just a time waster before Mary embarks on another round of being Wendy, or Dawn does her "own thing" and starts another cringe-worthy episode.

Meanwhile, is Estelle as furious with Wilbur running away as Iris was when he dumped her?

Time for “Arthur” to rear his ugly head?

It's amazing how this strip can on Monday offer a hint that maybe something interesting will happen and then immediately sink back into its usual sludge pit of mind-deadening tedium.

Or am I being too kind?

You're being too kind. I'm thinking we're in for several weeks of Dawn just sitting doing absolutely nothing because she doesn't have a job tying her down. And Mary won't like someone just sitting around doing absolutely nothing. Maybe Dawn will turn into and Arthur(er) minus the catfishing.


Or maybe something exiting WILL happen. But I'm going with nothing happening.

SATURDAY
Mary needs to seek immediate treatment for her compulsion to “help others.” She can try an appointment with Dr. Sweater Vest, although she may need more than the one visit that turned around Wilbur. Another trip to the Pac Wellness Center might be called for.

KitKat said...

That’s Pax Wellness Center...argh!

No pressure, but I really can't wait for Saturday's BFH....

Mary needs a tattoo on her forearm that says, "Born To Meddle." Or maybe, "Heavy Meddle Thunder."

P.S. Boy, Captcha put me through my paces today!

Sunday: From the throwaway panel "If you want to join cooking session"... I can imagine all the muffins and Splak cookies these two will be cooking.

Also Sunday's strip is just a rehash of this week's boring and trite conversation: Wilbur in Mozambique tormenting cyclone survivor's, Dawn free to get in some kind of mess that Mary will have to meddle Dawn out of, because she said she's giddy about not having "a schedule or obligation".

KitKat said...

Since Dawn has so much time on her hands with nothing to do, why didn’t Dad Wilbur take her with him to Mozambique? Maybe she would have learned something.

Yahoonski said...

If Moy tried harder, she could probably jam a few more instances of the word "over" into this conversation, which I sincerely hope is now over.

Dawn is home for 2 months alone without anything at all to do the whole summer. All costs covered, Mary is ok with all of this, even offering free food.

Let the games begin.

"You worked hard during your school semester. Come on over and we'll cook food in cooking containers. Then we can eat our cooked food off of food plates and drink liquids from glass receptacles. Then I'll wash our cooking containers in my kitchen sink with hot soapy water from the water faucet and place the food plates and glass receptacles in my dishwashing machine appliance. . . ."

Your school semester? Nobody talks like that.

-- S. McW.

I'm struck by the number of bold-faced words today. Karen Moy has upped her game and hidden a message by scrambling the word order. With apologies to Nance, this Sunday's unscrambled secret message is "Hannibal Lecter catfishes Wilbur."

Chat session:
Company obligation?
Cyclone will free schedule.
Time share invitation worked.
Mozambique! Welcome, love giddy talk.
You're cooking survivors? Hard meal.

Wilbur is now simmering in a pot. Or so I hope.

@ S. McW, Coneheads do! Maybe Mary's hiding something under that hat. Meps!

Gina said...

Hoo boy. We have Giddy Dawn with lots of time on her hands. What could possibly go wrong?

S. McW and mr_darcy - both hilarious comments - Hopefully, everyone will get a chance to read them before Wanders comes back!
