(Strip Number 4636, Original Publication Date, 18 June 1986)
Panel 1: As Elly tries to fit Lizzie's graduation gown, she tells her to hold still. What she doesn't realize is that Mike just handed Lizzie a can of grape soda because he's got a tiny brain.
Panel 2: Since she's too focused on hemming the silly thing, her complaint about how baffled she is about the decision to have the kids all in white is totally baffling.
Panel 3: She's about to complain that it's only going to get dirty when a belch and a spill finally alert her to the presence of the soda can.
Panel 4: When Lizzie finishes her sentence for her, Elly is in despair again.
Summary: It would be more profitable for her to have spent her time asking herself how she could have avoided this. For starters, she should have told Mike to take a hike for the duration. Also, look for a Lynnsight that asks the question of how pants-on-head stupid the people at Evil Adultery-Loving Lynn Lake were to dress small children up in stain-magnet white.
