But, hey, it was the sixties in Brooklyn. Everyone had an arranged marriage.

The condo board has rejected my petition to add this song to the jukebox.

Death metal music is also gnarly. But hopefully, we can learn from it.

Grief is not a plot. The only way this is a plot is if either Mary is hitting on Myster Wynter, or if the two of them discover that they both dabble in the dark arts, and Myster Wynter and Mary Wyrth raise Bella from the dead.

Mary's really good at coming up with obscure quotes that are totally apropos for the moment. I can only quote television, which sometimes gets me into trouble.

"Friends joke with one another. 'Hey, you're poor. Hey, your mama's dead.' That's what friends do." - Michael J. Scott, The Office

Not really appropriate, but funny in context.

A blood clot doesn't sound like such a bad way to get out of this story.

Write your creative answers in the comments section, only here's the challenge: You can't use the words "salmon," "appetizer" or "shame."

"Myster Wynter, I can bring Bella back... All I will need is a patch of her fur, some black chalk, and a strong electric current. Oh, and your immortal soul. Would that be acceptable to you?"

Mary begins to comprehend that she may have been responsible for Bella's early demise.

Something that Myster Wynter has already learned, but Toby will never ever in a bazillion years understand.

I'm loving new phlegmatic Toby. In my experience, most artists tend to be very empathetic and sensitive people. But not Toby Cameron. She's a hardcore, heartless alcoholic who paints evil clowns, and sculpts endangered species just to exercise control over them. Just when you think she can't get any more shocking, she slams another martini and cranks the volume to 11.

Toby hates animals. That's why she sculpts them in clay. So she can smash them in the street when she gets angry.

Tobies magically sprout in Mary's daffodil patch because they're daffy!

I keep thinking Myster Wynter is some sort of stage name for a professional wrestler. I definitely want to see him in a cage match with His Own Demons.

I don't usually make plot predictions because... well, what's the point? But if this story doesn't finish with a death match between Myster Wynter and Ian for the affection of Toby's steel blue galvanized heart, I'll be sorely disappointed.

Where'd all the swimmers go? I'm starting to wonder if the Charterstone pool is some sort of mythical subterranean beast that opens its mouth camouflaged as a swimming pool waiting for its prey to take a dip. The size of the pool adjusts to indicate how hungry it is.

Joe Giella never drew swimmers in the pool because he was aware of this trap, until Olive fell in and was almost eaten. June Brigman still has a lot to learn about Santa Royale, obviously.

Last year, Wilbur in a Speedo won panel of the year. But this year, I think he's gone too far.
