(Strip Number 4604, Original Publication Date, 1 May 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly get all hyped up as she tells Marian that the poem she'd submitted to Upper Crust magazine has been published.

Panel 2: Elly goes on to say that she can't believe it, is excited and has phoned every person she knows.

Panel 3: She then states that they're paying her fifty dollars.

Panel 4: Her smile fades away upon realizing that she's blown the whole fifty on long distance charges.

Summary: This embarrassing reverse could have been prevented if she'd used snail mail. Back then, postage was a lot less expensive. Also, she could have reached out to Phil and gotten him to help spread the word.
