We wind up with Lynn ripping off Hatlo when the steps John takes to make sure he has restful sleep by a given time cause him to be fast asleep at the stated time.

(Strip Number 6715, Original Publication Date, 7 Febuary 1988)

Panel 1: It's late at night. As Elly sleeps, John tosses and turns because he is unable to do so.

Panel 2: He wakes her up when he rises and snorts in frustration.

Panel 3: When she asks him what the matter is, he tells her that he cannot sleep.

Panel 4: He makes something of a meal of explaining that he's obliged to be up at five thirty and cannot sleep.

Panel 5: We find him in the kitchen getting a carton of milk out of the fridge.

Panel 6: He reads the paper at the kitchen table hoping to lull himself to sleep.

Panel 7: Since this doesn't seem to have worked and it's one forty five in the morning, he's not happy.

Panel 8: He goes back to tossing and turning.

Panel 9: When it's five thirty, his alarm goes off and Elly tells him that it's time to get up.

Panel 10: She's gobsmacked when his response is to snore loudly.

Summary: I should think that we're in for some angry comments about how it's always been impossible for Lynn to get a good night's sleep. Something or someone always seems to interrupt.
