(Strip Number 4398, Original Publication Date, 6 January 1984)
Panel 1: Now that we're at the class, Drill Sergeant Melanie leads her troops with a call of "Now, bounce and bounce-bounce-bounce and turn on one-two-three!"
Panel 2: She follows this with "Twist-twist-twist-twist again, six, seven, eight and back and side...."
Panel 3: An exhausted Elly lays down on a mat, groans in pain and tells Connie that that was great.
Panel 4: Connie tells her to get up because that was just the warm-up; Elly is horrified.
Summary: What Elly never seems to understand is that someone who's used to the sedentary lifestyle of doing household chores and running after slow-moving children cannot, repeat, CANNOT suddenly switch to a high-impact regime like this without being impacted. It's a good thing Coffee Talk is through or else we'd be getting people echoing how unfair it is that one set of exercise is not like the other.
