As you know, I posted a thing about today's mess in which Elly howls in rage because Lizzie spilled that can of varnish stupidly left open already and know what I think. The fun thing is wondering what the Lynnsight will be.


(Strip Number 4405, Original Publication Date, 21 January 1984)

Panel 1: We start things off with a smiling Elly mixing up some cookies and thought-bubbling that she feels wonderful today.

Panel 2: As she gets ready to put them in the oven, she tells herself "Let other people have their woes and worries...this is my day to howl!!"

Panel 3: This is what we call "tempting fate"; that's because a very freaked-out Mike comes in talking about how Lizzie spilled a bottle of varnish in the hall carpet.

Panel 4: Elly's response is to howl in rage.


Summary: (Edited) What we see is a woman paying for her own stupidity by losing her peace of mind. What Lynn sees is a happy accident that allows Elly to know what happiness actually is by contrasting it with preventable chaos. In short, Elly CANNOT be responsible because her life would be BOOOOOOOOOOOring!!!!
