When you lick it, you can taste the ocean.
Big spender Hugo. He probably got it in one of those tacky, overpriced gift shops by the beach. (There's a ton of them here in Maine, especially in Old Orchard Beach.)Hugo, just get on that plane and don't look back. You and your cheap gift are encouraging Dawn to convince you to stay.
Yeah, Hugo has Dawn's number. She whines and whines about a long distance relationship. Throw a tacky necklace at her and shiny object! She is happy and the whining stops. Fast forward ten years. Dawn will still be in college and while Wilbur is in the shower singing about another lost love, Dawn will be at the Bum Boat wearing the necklace and talking to the fish on the wall about Hugo.
MDMaryTed, picturing Dawn talking to the mounted fish at the Bum Boat gave me a big laugh.Instead of the cheap, tacky necklace, Hugo got the even cheaper and tackier bracelet. Good luck getting that around Dawn’s neck, buddy!
Um, I'm no expert on jewelry, but isn't that kind of small to be a necklace?Besides, what are you doing, Hugo? You're thisclose to being free. Why complicate things? -- Scottie McW.
Is there anyone here who didn't immediately think garrote?
That’s the kind of inexpensive (read “cheap”) trinket you buy to please or placate a whiny five-year-old who doesn’t want the trip to the amusement park to end. So, Hugo’s got Dawn’s number, doesn’t he. Well done, Hugo.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled"When You Put It To Your Ear, You Can Hear The Sound Of Our Love".Ma cherie...remember.Need. Won't.Seashell necklace!Beautiful!On...
Hugo probably didn't even buy that thing. It's more likely he made it himself from an old scallop shell he found in the dumpster behind the Bum Boat.HelenClark
" Dawn will be at the Bum Boat wearing the necklace and talking to the fish on the wall about Hugo. "The best!!!!
Not quite Le Coeur de la Mer, is it?
Ahaha...what a cheapskate. He probably found the shell on the beach and attached it to a piece of twine he also found on the beach. What does Dawn see in this guy anyway? I wonder how long it will be until her next doomed relationship?
Of course, the seashell necklaces are much nicer in France.
...and he painted the shell with leftover paint from his host's house....
That necklace looks to be the size of a cat collar. Does Dawn have a cat?
SATURDAY What Hugo means by “I really do wish things were different”: “I wish you were sexier, richer, smarter, and willing to come to Paris every other week for some ooh-la-la, no strings attached.”
In a last-ditch attempt to keep him from leaving forever, Dawn whispers to a TSA agent that Hugo has a bomb concealed in his shoe. Events ensue.Sheesh, she's gone from taking the initiative, to being persistent, to being desperate, to being pushy and annoying, to being delusional. It's gonna take a lot of muffins and platitudes to fix this mess.-- S. McW.
Time for Dawn to become an exchange student at La Sorbonne!She can study Intermediate Parkour.
Hilarious comments, everyone! Wanders, I could just see Dawn secretly licking that shell as Hugo flies away... I have to say that when he presented Dawn with the necklace, I had a momentary warm spot for these two. It was a sweet gesture and a sign that he could actually think about someone besides himself. Then Dawn had to ruin it with an over the top response more on the order of a slobbering, clumsy puppy than a woman of her years, so I have to wonder if that warm spot was from the spicy oysters I had for lunch.
SUNDAYAs if Dawn hadn’t done enough to repel Hugo, the Ugly Cry should seal the deal. He won’t be able to get on that plane fast enough, and his first action will be to delete all her information from his phone.
So KM used Alfred Lord Tennyson to put a fork in this nothing burger. Boy, who didn’t see “It’s better to have loved and lost...” coming, other than..,everyone on the face of the earth.Dawn: “...but we have this moment” [sniff sniff boo hoo hoo].Hugo: “Get your face off my sleeve, you’re making it wet and disgusting!”
LouiseF - watch out for that heartburn. Over in Rex Morgan that means you are pregnant.
