John and Elly trade witless banter about Connie's habit of getting up early to exercise.

(Strip Number 1118, Original Publication Date, 11 March 1987)

Panel 1: It's early in the morning and John wants to know what the curse-word the noise that's just woken him up is.

Panel 2: Elly tells him that it's Connie getting up for twenty minutes of early-morning exercise.

Panel 3: John says that does sound like a great way to start the morning and stay in shape.

Panel 4: Since she can see aerobics coming, she invites him to start first in order to make it not a great idea after all.

Summary: What we're dealing with, of course, is the fact that the Pattersons are rather sedentary by inclination. Elly shoves her face full of food, rewards herself for minimal physical effort by gorging herself at Tim Horton's and still resents the unfairness of her being pudgy.
