Poor Larry-with no idea what’s going on, he just wants to lighten the mood. With the usual result.
Monday, Edison explains, Larry exclaims, and…well, have a nice weekend.
And thanks again for your comments!
I disagree. That’s pretty funny.
That is like saying that he should wave his very wide tie in her face to make his point. She thinks that she is a woman scorned right now…
I keep forgetting that Larry has only known Edison for a week. His confusion is comic in a Cary Grant kinda way.
This page tickled my memory and made me smile. My wife was in a protracted venting session, but I had no idea what she was talking about . . . until she addressed me by her ex-husband’s first name.
“Why are you smiling?”
“My name isn’t Ronald.”
Silence . . .
In one of Edison’s flash-backs, she inadvertently refers to her husband as ‘Larry’. Way funny.
“Something for everyone, a comedy tonight!” (‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum’) I love it!
I get it too. Assumptions, counter assumptions, and BS abound. The part that makes me sad is that it is all being manipulated by a Mistress who does not brook disobedience lightly.
and the poor sod hasn’t a clue to what she’s ranting about. i’ve noticed, over the years that women do this often. you have to keep an eye out for the trip wire and grenade.
Don’t offer ‘fixes’. Respond only when requested. Try to understand, but don’t expect to. Never say “But”. Show interest and DON”T LOOK AT YOUR WATCH!
Or as I’ve always done, the moment someone starts deliberately taking everything the worst way possible, just say “Fuck it. Not putting up with this.” and leave the room.
i’m an optomist, edison tells all, and larry tells her it doesn’t matter, he’s still not breaking up with her. as i mentioned i’ve had a variant of this conversation a long time ago.
“thanks again for your comments!”
you’re welcome, but i’m seeing it as a conversation between artist and audience, most enjoyable, thank you.
Whoa. Did Edison just sober up?
Whoops. Artistic oversight. The persons responsible have been sacked.
Oh, I dunno…getting so angry she sobers up? It works for me.
*sighs* Can’t these two just enjoy themselves without some asshole trying to ruin them?
If it IS Eleanor pulling the strings, she may think she has a good reason for it. Larry would be right to get angry at Eleanor treating him like a piece in a chess board.
You may need to explain your POV.
Eleanor found out about Edison’s former identity through Anya…by using Anya’s love for – and previous relationship with – Eleanor. Manipulative.
Eleanor then learned about Edison’s past life and then had the waiter innocuously mention all those names. All this though she has proclaimed affection and respect for Larry.
No matter Eleanor’s motive – whether it was to get Edison to reveal her past to Larry so there’d be no secrets between them, or to get back at Edison for something we don’t know about yet, or just out of a I-did-it-because-I-could attitude – Larry would have every right to be angry. Larry and Edison have been set up – maneuvered into place like pieces on a chess board. I know I’D be pissed.
Does that help you see where I’m coming from?
Edison is carrying a lot of baggage. She needs to lighten her load and share her past with Larry. Trust me, it would only improve their relationship (I hate that word as much as the ‘ex’ prefix).
Phyllo is a problem though, if he and Edison are still married, that is. If they’re divorced, it’s quite another matter. Either way, Phyllo may be glad to be rid of Rosemary.
The children’s ‘pale paternal unit’ came to visit the first Christmas after their mother and I were married. He came through the front door, introduced himself, then kissed me on the lips (“no tongues” – ‘Young Frankenstein’ I love that movie). We all had a pleasant dinner together. But by the time he left, he had consumed a bottle of red wine, half a bottle of rum, and a six-pack. He finally said his goodbyes, got into his car, and drove off into the night . . . until next year . . . maybe. As soon as the front door closed, the kids started jumping around the room “YES! YES! YES! YEEEEE!
i’d suggest eleanor wants to back off sharpish, this sort of game playing can blow up in her face real sudden and loud.
Hee, Hee, Hee, poor Larry … caught in a shit storm of female irrationality. Like all dudes, he ain’t got a clue whats going on or how to fix it.
‘Women have their faults.
Men have only two,
Everything they say.
and everything they do.’ 😀
Okay, Eleanor wants to break up Larry and Edison so Anya has a clear shot at Larry. So there, I’ve said it! Everybody Happy? I’m not!
