Mary Worth 2830

If the #metoo movement has taught us anything, it's never tell anyone that a character tried to sexually assault you.

The way Jeff is slouching down suggests to me that this is not his first (or second or third) glass of wine.

What's that by Jeff's left arm? A box of pudding?

Once again, Baren Coy has made light of what is a serious subject. Instead of telling Dr. Jeff his "character" of a friend is a rapist, she just sloughs it off, saying she's not going into the muffin business. No reason why, she's not going and she's made peace with that. I thought she was going to tell him over dinner.

I will totally lose it if someone in this dopey strip (Mary, Dr. Jeff, Toby) mentions the #me too movement. But knowing Baren Coy, she'll call it something ridiculous like the #ustoo movement.

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"Peace Is All About Keeping Unpleasant Secrets To Yourself".

Disappointed not?
Not at all!
Peace decision! Make small circles.
Your. Happy.

As Nance’s haiku makes clear, “make small circles” seems to be the takeaway from the Muffin Tales. Don’t distress yourself over lost muffin millions, the NYC penthouse, or the home in Hawaii, let alone an attempt at a sexual assault. Make small circles! On to the next meddling opportunity!

Meanwhile, Jeff is comfortable in his catatonic world.

And that’s it. No further mention of Ted, the muffin business, or sexual assault. On to the next storyline. And I’ll bet we don’t even get a pool party out of it.

If Monday dawns with a heartbroken Iris at Mary’s door, I will be very, very upset.

Spumoni mashed potatoes are my favorite. I save the pistachio portion for St. Patrick's Day.

Regarding the sorry conclusion of this story, are we surprised by Mary's dismissal of Ted's assault? This is the woman who told Dawn to date her professor. Why does anyone take her advice seriously? (Must be the muffins!)

I still cannot believe Mary did not contact the police about that character Ted Miller. Does she not realize she's enabling him but taking this live and let live attitude? Shame on you, Mary!

TimP said...

I think we should note that Mary hasn't finished her dinner with Jeff. I can see why she would wait until after they're done eating. Imagine the opposite:

"Mary, that chicken looks and smells fantastic!"

"Why, thank you, Jeff. Here have a thigh and drumstick with these, uh, dirty mashed potatoes. Oh, by the way, your friend Ted tried to sexually assault me. More green lumps?"

Dawn Weston's Evil Twin said...

"I'll still MAKE muffins and share them within SMALL CIRCLES." Why does that ring a bell? Oh, I know! Mary's small muffin circles are like the sharing circle at Pax Wellness Resort. That ended really well ... NOT! #AgitatedAggie

According to Wanders's tags, the last Charterstone pool party was held on March 14, 2017, and the one before that was on June 6, 2014 (with Olive and her oversexed parents). We need to talk to the condo board about this! We need more pool parties!
