Memorial Day 2015

Elly invites Sue to read one of the lovely poems she came up with. Today's effort involves the seeming endlessness of laundry time.

(Strip Number 4618, Original Publication Date, 26 May 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves at the library today as Elly hands Sue a bunch of the poems she'd written over the years so as to get input from a fellow mother.

Panel 2: She sort of alludes to what's really going on by calling them personal theraphy from a mother's viewpoint.

Panel 3: The first poem Sue reads starts off with the immortal lines "When the dryer is on air-fluff/when the last load is on spin/when you think the laundry's finished/the next load doth begin."

Panel 4: Elly states that this one was written during her (ongoing) futility of housework stage.

Summary: She should spend less time writing horrible poems and more time asking herself how four people make that much dirty laundry. Also, get off your cross, Elly. It's unseemly-looking.
