The pain and discomfort and boredom of being in the late part of the third trimester mean that Annie can't share Elly's enthusiasm about the return of warmer weather.

(Strip Number 4594, Original Publication Date, 31 March 1986)

Panel 1: We start things off in the yard on a pleasant late March day as Elly tells Annie that she loves this time of year.

Panel 2: What she likes about the time of year is new shoots and buds on the trees and the swelling blossoms of early spring plants like crocuses.

Panel 3: She exclaims that Spring is bustin' out all over.

Panel 4: Since Anne is close to her due date, her deadpan comment "Tell me about it" indicates that she feels like she's busting out all over as well.

Summary: While it's something I can never really experience, I am a creature of reason and thus can at the very least empathize with someone who's obviously in extreme discomfort like Anne is. Too bad that's more than Elly can manage.
