Mary Worth 2757

We have two furry cats. They're brother and sister. The male is orange and named Sundance. The other is Storm, and is a short, grey overweight female. She's tiny, but fat, and looks like a little furball. I'm not a fan of either cat, and they represent major compromises. The agreement was that I don't have to clean up after them. Of course, sometimes I have to when I'm the only one around, but generally, we try to ignore each other. Saturday was my birthday, but because one of my kids was gone, we decided to celebrate on Sunday. Nonetheless, I moped about all day Saturday, feeling like no one cared about my birthday. I can be pathetic like that. That night, I had trouble sleeping, so I got out a book I bought myself as a birthday present, and was reading in the living room at 2:00 AM. As I sat reading, Sundance walked into the middle of the living room and vomited a huge pile of regurgitated cat food. I thought, "Great. The perfect ending to the perfect day." And then Storm came over and ate the vomit.

I share this story because it isn't nearly as sickening as Zak and Iris today.

The dramatic comparison to be made here is not how happy Iris and Zak are compared to Wilbur, but how much better their food is than PanAm's in-flight menu.

Wait. I think I see a mountain peak actually hidden in the clouds! They're flying lower than they realize. Maybe Wilbur doesn't make it home after all. Either that, or we have to sit through another "survivor story."

"Fabiana..." [Move other passenger's coat, shove carryon in the wrong way, remove carryon, turn sideways, try again, shift other carryons, push hard, ask little old lady in aisle seat if you can climb in, wait for her to stow her book, unfasten her seat belt, and slowly step into the aisle, waddle toward window seat, plop down, raise window shade, fasten seat belt] "is NOT the 'LOVE OF MY LIFE!' How could I have been so FOOLISH?"

I don't know, she sounds pretty sincere. It's hard to know since we never saw what they were actually doing, but Wilbur, you may be walking away from the absolute best thing that's ever happened to you.

For someone who speaks English as a second-language, Pedro has remarkable comedic timing.

Happy Thanksgiving, from Mary Worth and Friends!

"Where's Pedro?" is the Colombian version of "Where's Waldo." Can you find Pedro on the Bogota Beach?

I really hope nothing surprising happens after he enters Pedro's studios.

Dang, I was really hoping we'd get more of Fabiana, but it looks like she's gone for good. I'm surprised that Wilbur hasn't figured that out, but just one block away from Joyeria and she's nowhere to be found.

Just like in The Gift of the Magi, Wilbur has sold his silky combover to purchase the ring for Fabiana. Unlike the The Gift of the Magi, Fabiana doesn't care.

I'm almost positive that Empleado de Joyería is another one of Fabiana's cousins. She's very good at drumming up business for the family.

Maybe if Wilbur stopped living so high on his Santa Royale Tribune expense account, he wouldn't keep meeting gold diggers.

I like Fabiana even more today. Boy, she knows what she's doing. She's figured out that this guy could skip out of the country at any moment, and she wants to make sure he is heavily invested in sticking around. A $30,000 emerald ring seems like a reasonable request. Go, Fabiana, go!

Wilbur has been traveling around the world for over a year, living in hotels and eating room service. So clearly, money isn't the reason for his hesitation as they pick out an engagement ring. Perhaps, deep inside, he still has feelings for Iris. Those two kids have broken up a lot more than they've gotten together, and I for one, can't get enough of their discomfirture.

When Iris was first dating Zak, wasn't he like 22? It really does appear that our theory is correct: The reason he has accomplished so much so quickly is that he is living in a different time-space continuum than Iris. I've said it before (Sunday recaps), Zak will be Iris's age in time for the wedding. He's flying through time at rocket speed, and she's crawling through time like a snail on a fence. It's been years since I pulled out the ol' Dharma Initiative tag, but I think is appropriate.

Looks like Zak traded in his new Porsche for my 1997 Volkswagen New Beetle.

I can't tell you how relieved I am to learn this morning that Zak and Iris really are just drinking coffee. Extra-marital relations are the domain of characters like Charley Smith, Nola Wolvenson, and Entertainer Esme. It's how we know they're bad.

Sometimes a cup of coffee really is just a cup of coffee.

It's been a busy 9 months for Zak. He developed a game of some sort that has made him millions of dollars; founded and staffed Zakiks Studios; and moved from his parents' house into a 12th-floor luxury apartment. Meanwhile, Iris Skyped with her other ex-boyfriend twice, and Mary went on a four-day cruise with Toby. If Iris and Zak get married, will Zak age at a faster rate until he catches up with her? Will Iris and Tommy have to visit him once a week in the nursing home?

Wow. This is some kind of retaliation date? This woman is messed up. Wilbur dodged a bullet. And Zak deserves what he gets.

Let's face it. You've broken up with Wilbur at least twice. Then you broke up with Zak. And now you feel sorry for yourself that Wilbur "broke up" with you after you broke up with him and Zak? I just don't understand women. As portrayed in Mary Worth.

Interesting because of all the characters in the Worthiverse, these are the two I've missed the least. I hope they get married soon so they can disappear forever.

Zakiks sounds like a Flappy Bird game, but there's a vomiting cat instead.

This is ironic coming from the woman who apparently never knows what she wants.
