(Strip Number 4527, Original Publication Date, 2 November 1985)
Panel 1: Having returned from chaperoning the school party, Elly tells John that doing so has left her quite exhausted.
Panel 2: She wiped spills, stopped arguments, mended costumes, policed the halls, kept the peace and did all the other things she does every day.
Panel 3: She tells John that it's difficult disciplining children these days.
Panel 4: A traumatized-for-life Elly concludes by saying that for some reason that isn't at all related to her being dressed as a clown (despite what the woman writing the strip might think), they didn't take her seriously.
Summary: I expect to see something about how children don't seem to listen any longer. This is because I don't expect Lynn to admit that at one point, Elly was allowed to be fallible.
