Let the meddle begin! Plus, bonus, Dawn breaks up with Jared, so that will be awesome to watch!

How can you love two people at the same time? It shouldn't be too hard. Most of your boyfriends have done it.

I'm sorry, what? You've been friends with Jared for several years? So, like in high school? But that would mean you were dating that married doctor in high school. We used to just pretend time didn't move in the Worthiverse, but now there's no more pretending: Dawn is the perpetual college student. The next thing you know, water will start defying gravity.

I'm concerned that Jared has declared his love at least twice, but for the third time, Dawn is confessing that she has only "fallen" for Jared, which plainly manifests her inability to commit to anything or anyone. Jared is clearly a poor judge of character.

This is their life together now. Endlessly declaring their love for one another and aimlessly wandering through a bad part of town.

Just to take a break from Mary Worth, I want to wish each of you a very special week. This is a difficult time for many families that have been effected by COVID-19. All of us, including those we may target with occasional snarks, are impacted by it in some way. I have never intended to be mean-spirited with this blog, but have hoped to create a place where we can unleash a little laughter and joy over our favorite comic strip, which is compelled by its genre to take itself way too seriously - but not always. Anyway, this is just my way of thanking everyone for your collaboration and kindness. Most of us are hunkering down and isolated, and being able to connect here with each of you has been a real relief. If you want to send me an email, you can at I'd love to hear from you anytime.

Past few MONTHS? Wait... where have I been? Dawn bumped into you at the pizza joint. You went on a date to see "Ruse of the Fast Talker" and a meal where you told her about your mother practicing naked yoga with her boyfriend. Then you had lunch together at the hospital. And then it's tonight, where you got mustard on your chin and you declared your love. All I am asking is that we slow down so we can savor every moment of this train wreck.

Jared is having second thoughts already, now that she's attainable.

Thank you, Downpuppy! How could I have forgotten Dave?

Hugo, it won't be long before you've taken the long walk to oblivion, like so many other men in Dawn's life. I'm not counting, but how many boyfriends did YOU have in college?

Mary Worth 3316

So Jared uses the ol' kiss-me-before-we-die line. There's something about seeing other couples walk by while you sit on the Blah Blah Bench that just inspires love. Hugo is going to beat the crap out of Jared when he comes to visit.

Dining in? In California? I don't think so. When I look at this panel, all I can think of is how many germs are being transmitted.

It is obvious to Mary because she's never met Jared and that's all the information she needs.

Silently, the wraith muffles the rattle of its ceramic mug against the fiberglass tray, waiting for its victim to be alone once more, preparing to feed on that loneliness, sucking the last hope of connection from the fading shadow of her soul.

She’s surprised, but not as surprised as she was when she spotted Estelle and Wilbur having lunch together. Nothing is as constant as change.

Some things, like the name of the hospital and Mary's morning shift, do change. Some things don't. I won't list them.

It's Groundhog Day! Today's entire Sunday Recap was may favorite of all time because it reminded me of my favorite movie Groundhog Day when Phil tries to recreate the perfect day word for word, and each time it gets more rushed and frantic.

It's Groundhog Day! Today's Recap was may favorite. It reminds me of Groundhog Day when Phil tries to recreate the perfect day, and it's rushed. Ha ha ha ha ha. It's so funny and hilarious!

So, Dawn waited until they'd walked three blocks and were seated at the Diner before revealing to Jared what "corny" stuff her dad and his girlfriend were into? And now I have to wait at least until the appetizers are brought out before Jared defines "wacky?" This has been a very suspenseful week!

Tuesday, March 3, 2020

Mary Worth 3301

Jared is uncomfortably eager to hear what her dad and his girlfriend are into. Me, I'm just uncomfortable.

Mary Worth 3300

I've had a busy day, and really didn't get to see today's strip until after 3:00 PM... but it was worth waiting for.

Has anyone ever said anything more dorky than Jared's comment today? I am still laughing at his level of dweebness, and his ability to look like a Star Wars alien while he proclaims his passion.

Whatever you do, DON'T say it... because than we'd have to tell an actual joke.

Why does Dawn continue to reminisce fondly about the good old days when she was dating a married man and screaming at Jared anytime he tried to confront her with the truth? Good times, indeed.

Friday, February 28, 2020

Mary Worth 3298

Jared is a nice guy, but it was the darkest time of your life, Dawn, to discover you were dating a married man. Although... now that I think about it, I definitely hope it IS like old times, and that Jared will be the one to inform Dawn that Hugo is cheating on her.

Dawn, you’re an idiot. Jared works at NORTHview Hospital and Mary volunteers at MOUNTview hospital. Anyone with even the slightest interest in this strip knows that.

So much time since I’m a full time student. Still, I wouldn’t dream of getting a job.

He's French. He'll hate it. But I want to drive him into a murderous rage so he'll come visit me.

Mary Worth 3293

Wait a minute, Jared. The pay isn't better because you're at a hospital. The pay is better because you were a Medical Assistant for Dr. Fletcher, and now you're a Physicians Assistant, which pays three times as much. Remember how you spent the last two years in school?

"So do I! Sadly, it's a Star Wars Parody Film, so it won't ever be in theaters. Not after Space Balls."

Why are you lying about enjoying pizza, Jared? We can clearly see that you don’t have any pizza. Are you trying to trick Dawn into thinking you’ve suddenly come into money, or is this your subtle way of letting Dawn know that you don’t believe her cockamamie story about a boyfriend. In France.

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

Mary Worth 3290

It’s been two years? Yes, in earth time, but in the Worthiverse? That’s impossible! That would mean that Dawn would be just about finishing up her associates degree, and that can never happen!

"Come on over, Jared! I have a new boyfriend and he isn't you again. Do you want to see pictures of his muscles?"

Tony’s. Even the name promises drama, tension, story rich in character. The magic of theatre and pizza and cheese fries. We are in for a wonderful six months. Unless this is the “Based on a Previous Work” category.

Every morning I wake up and ask myself, “How is Karen Moy going to form a coherent sentence that fits into a tiny word balloon?” Some days are better than others.
