Mary Worth 1780

Tommy has a long history with Santaroymart. He used to buy is drugs at the warehouse. Ironically, my best memories of this strip are at the Santaroymart warehouse.

When my work life gets too busy to even read Mary Worth, and I miss a classic strip like yesterday's, what with Wilbur pulling a steak knife on Ex-con Tommy, and with a passing reference to Santaroymart, I'm working too hard. Maybe I can get a new job pushing carts at Santaroymart.

I can certainly understand why the survivor column is easier than the advice column... I mean, a survivor story practically writes itself. It would only require hours of research, tracking down survivors, extensive interviews, reviewing police reports. And now that he doesn't have to take up entire minutes a week answering Ask Wendy letters, he will have plenty of time to impress Iris with his hairy arms.

Wilbur puts on his best Woman Scorned face and gives Tommy the stink eye. He knows why Iris dumped him: To care for her low life son when his STATUS CHANGED. Now he's had to ask Mary Worth to write his 600 word weekly column for him so that he can devote his full attention to wooing Iris back.

Here's a few things you can do to get ready, Tommy. Change your shirt, cut your hair, maybe even put on a tie. And if all else fails, follow your mother's example and hide your face behind a giant word balloon.

You know, it makes perfect sense that Iris would welcome her son home from prison and announce "I've decided that you and I are going to move somewhere where we can both get a fresh start: Charterstone, where you got arrested for drug dealing, and where the man I dumped lives. It'll be swell."

Who Is This Remarkable Singer?

Which song do you like better?

Proud papa.

Mary Worth 1774

Yes, with Wilbur's help, Tommy now has hope. I'm sure Tommy will be very grateful. Maybe they could fly kites together, or go fishing.

After all Mary has done to eradicate drugs from Santa Royale, Tommy's returning? This just can't be. Like the Pied Piper, he will lead the vermin back. Heh heh. I said "Pied Piper."

Wilbur's conversations with his imaginary friends always leave him a little bit excited, and a little bit sad.

It sure was great. Daddy's leaving AND she got to eat scallops! Every eight year old's dream dinner.

The End. Excellent story. Which part was your favorite? I liked when Jeff wiped his face with Chin Napkin. What about you? What were some of your favorite memories of Frannie's Mom Gets a Divorce?

The fish continue to circle overhead, like vultures waiting for the carrion remains of a marriage and a few leftover fish sticks.

Yes, the mother who takes her ten year old daughter out to a public restaurant to celebrate straight A's and to let her know that daddy is leaving forever is definitely making some good parenting choices.
