(Strip Number 981 , Original Publication Date, 25 November 1985)
Panel 1: As our story continues, a haggard and rumpled looking John staggers into the house after a hard day at the job and slams the door.
Panel 2: He then flops bonelessly into the couch.
Panel 3: Michael approaches the sofa and asks John if he had a hard day at work.
Panel 4: Michael reports that Daddy has blinked twice for "yes."
Summary: This, I should think, is the part of the equation Elly ignores when she complains about John not doing enough around the house.
