Mary Worth 3225

"When I found out he lived at Charterstone, I wanted to meet him in person. Now I want to move."

By the way, if you haven't listened to the Charterstone Jukebox lately, the new lead song "Once Again" by the Hi-Lo's is the perfect Wilbur anthem.

Wilbur, do you mean model as in pretty-boy photograph’s model or model as a type of something, e.g., “The all-new Mazda Zak is here!”?

Whatever is in Wilbur’s glass can only fan the flames of his resentment. I can’t wait for tomorrow’s strip.

Wilbur is polishing off another drink and polishing off any chance of dating another woman at Charterstone ever. Wilbur has attacked Zak and Iris, with he attack Estelle next? Likely. Wilbur is such a fun date!

Yak is having the time of his life. No worries about Irish going back to Weelbur, *ever again*.

My wife and I are four years apart; she's a Boomer and I'm apparently a Gen Xer. We've been married 21 years.

Are those fightin' words, Wilbur? Should I be offended? Are you implying my marriage is a sham and my wife robbed the cradle? If I was there, I'd dip a second spring roll in hot mustard and shove it down your drunk, smug face! Grrrrrrr!

I think it would be appropriate for Wilbur to mix a dash of regret in with all that self pity for dumping Iris for a grifter.
I'm also guessing Thai restaurants don't have rules about over service.

I can't even snark this week. MW is actually entertaining.

RobC, I love spring rolls in hot mustard. Karen Moy just taught me how to hog them and have my fellow diners think it was their idea. Sadly, I can use this technique only with people I never want to see again.

It seems to me this year the Worthies could have a Most Delusional Character category. I can think of several nominees who could take the award, but at this point, my money's on Estelle.

For once I can say I commend KM for FINALLY having a story that we can get (read snark) into. The strip hasn't been this entertaining since Aldo Kerast and his Captain Kangaroo hair came to Charterstone. I have actually been looking forward to reading the next day's strip to see how much more Wilbur can make a complete fool of himself. He's managed to insult the whole table with the exception of Estelle, which I'm sure tomorrow he'll say that she was a consolation prize (but say "sloppy seconds").

The "millenial model" or anything would be an upgrade from you, Wilbur. Have you looked in a mirror lately?

Tomorrow's strip: Wilbur starts sobbing and saying "Why didn't you love me the way I loved you Fabiana?", which causes some very long and embarrassing silence by everyone in the restaurant. Zak, Iris and Estelle all say they have to use the restroom and quietly sneak out.

I wonder how far Wilbur has to go before he hits rock bottom. I also wonder how Moy plans to resolve this storyline. I hope she doesn’t think Wilbur’s problem can be cured with muffins, platitudes, and a one-off consultation with Dr. Sweatervest. I’d recommend a full neurological workup, rehab and AA.

Actually, one of the most entertaining storylines for me was Rita, the woman who stayed with Mary while she was temporarily homeless. She got drunk and broke the cheesy glass swans that Mary's sainted first husband had given her on their honeymoon.

This story is poised to take over the number one spot.

This double date is a gift that keeps on giving.

RobC said...

You guys won’t believe this. I’m at the weekly Scout meeting and tonight’s cooking competition is....make your own spring rolls.

@RobC, do you get to shove them in someone's mouth afterwards?
