We find ourselves watching Elly looking like a pole-axed ewe again because Lizzie doesn't realize that she didn't really give her permission to sell all of her toys.

(Strip Number 7227, Original Publication Date, 28 September 1986)

Panel 1: We find Elly fast asleep on a weekend morning.

Panel 2: We set up the conflict when Elizabeth opens the door.

Panel 3: Elizabeth tries waking Elly by calling "Mom."

Panel 4: She then slaps Elly on the forehead; this sort of gets Elly's attention.

Panel 5: She then asks Elly if she can have a garage sale.

Panel 6: Still halfway-asleep Elly says "Yeah, sure" before zoning back out.

Panel 7: An hour or so later, Elly tells herself it's about time she woke up.

Panel 8: She then checks in on Elizabeth.

Panel 9: She praises Lizzie for having a beautiful room that hasn't a toy out of place. Lizzie knows this.

Panel 10: When she boasts about having sold them all, Elly goes into input failure.

Summary: I hope this is something she ripped off of someone. I'd have to see a Little Lindy show or Corbeil story about this. Also, Lizzie is 'supposed' to be evil because she doesn't know that Elly has to be fully awake to grant permission. Tune in tomorrow when she's evil because she wants to throw her childhood in the garbage while telling her evil lies about how other children boast about what they get to wear.
