This Week in Milford

Am I the Same Girl? No, Not Really

I’m not tagging this “actual action” but hey look, some actual parts of athletes are on display today. Linemen these days all wear gloves but accessorizing with chunky bracelets is the Milford Way. Back in my day, we linemen accessorized with rubber forearm pads that were the color of Band-Aids (maybe ’cause they were made by the makers of Band-Aids). I also tried a foam rubber neck roll but Coach made me stop because I didn’t really have that much of a neck to roll. I’d better stop talking about old school football gear before I really date myself.

Know who else is dating themselves? Holly Dobbs. Between the Swing Out Sister ‘do, the ’70s-referencing reality show title, and the talk – however insincere – of old romances Holly gives off a strong vibe of living in the past. The only past Gil’s living in is last year. With all these distractions and no O-line to speak of his team’s gonna be lucky to make the playdowns much less advance in them.

Give ol’ Gil credit though, he’s still not buying into Holly’s game. Especially not when he can smell the stench of well brand hooch and Marty’s despair on Holly’s meathook.



  1. I smell a reality show crossover approaching! After Mimi and Marty turn on this week’s “Welcome Back, Carter” and see Holly trying to seduce Gil, the characters will appear on next week’s “The First 48”.

  2. “Marty’s despair on Holly’s meathook.” That’s good; that’s very good. Not as good as your “by Mennen”, but it’s good. You’ve got a gift, my friend.

    I dunno, though, Holly’s never looked better. “There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.” -F. Bacon

  3. You seem a little down Holly? It seems out of character for Gil to care about Holly’s feelings. Here’s hoping Marty bursts onto the seen blasted out of his mind to take a slug at Gil who’s trying to make time with his woman.

  4. “You know, US magazine. I used to every now and then see my picture in there but it’s been years and years since I had enough juice to draw any sort of paparazzi attention. Oh well, let’s get back to our stilted dialogue and, if I’m lucky, the inevitable scandal this show causes may be enough to get me some free publicity in some gossip rag or another. Heck, at this point, I’d be happy with The National Enquirer.”

  6. It takes Mimi a pitcher of double-strength Long Island Iced Tea just to catch Gil’s attention. What chance does Holly have?
