We continue merrily on with Elly dying of hypothermia when the person at the concession stand makes an innocent comment that irritates Elly by reflecting her reality.

(Strip Number 972, Original Publication Date, 6 November 1985)

Panel 1: As Elly freezes, Lizzie realizes that Mommy needs to warm up and asks if they can go get some hot dogs while they wait for Mike to skate.

Panel 2: Elly's teeth chatter as she agrees to walk to the canteen.

Panel 3: The lady at the canteen says that she's sorry but it will take a few minutes for her to serve things up.

Panel 4: When she accidentally makes a pun by saying that her buns are frozen, Elly glares at us in rage.

Summary: It's not the lady's fault she's warm and that Elly didn't dress warmer. This is lost on Elly because she assumes that everyone knows who she is and how she's suffering at any given moment.
