Dang it! I missed the gratuitous "quotes" in Saturday's strip, when Elly said, this is the "new me", to the accompaniment of her gurgling stomach. Today, though, for once, the "quotes" are not "gratuitous", since they're preceded by "They say..." However, I don't know who "they" are; I've never heard anyone say that aging is not for the faint of heart.

Thoughtful of Elly to call Jim "Dad" in panel 1, because in that long shot, she could just as easily be Liz, or April, if the shading of the hair is off.

In panel 2, the stem of Elly's talk balloon looks like a duodenum, appropriately enough. And the dentist has arthritis, and Elly specifies that it's in his hands? That could force an early retirement!

In panel 4, does Elly even have pupils? And in panel 5, her nose is not even a potato; it's a turnip!

ETA that Dixie, in panel 1, looks like she's expired already.

And yes, I daresay Jim would give a lot to have Elly's problems.
