In today's strip, we celebrate Elly's need to be in the writer's trance as well as Mike successfully interpreting Elly's stalling tactics. We also have a Lynnsight that's all about how great it was that Lynn couldn't be arsed to deal with her children.

(Strip Number 4332, Original Publication Date, 14 May 1983)

Panel 1: As Elly ticka-tappa-tappas away at the weekly library column, Mike tells her that he and Lizzie are hungry; since she believes in the writer's trance and has poor time-management skills anyway, she blows them off by just-a-seconding him.

Panel 2: Mike then asks when she's going to be done. Her answer: Soon!
 
Panel 3: She bellows "IN A MINUTE!!!" when he asks how soon soon is.

Panel 4: Mike then hands the little girl he's raising by himself an apple and tells her that it's going to be at least an hour until supper.

Summary: A mother with better time management skills and without the preconception that she's being cheated out of things by her children would probably have distracted the kids by handing them an apple. Since Elly's brain is so tiny that she can barely do one thing at a time and since she thinks that her children are trying to destroy her ability to express herself because they hate to see her happy owing to a love of CHAOS!!!!, we're going to seeing horrible nonsense like this for years to come.
