(Strip Number 1342, Original Publication Date, 9 September 1988)
Panel 1: Having finally completed her two-man job, we find Elly slumped down in a kitchen chair noting that she can't believe that it took her to three in the morning to wallpaper the kitchen. (I should think that the professionals she should have hired CAN believe it because they have a fair idea of how long it would take an amateur who thinks she can do it solo to do so.)
Panel 2: She does that stupid thing where she points her finger in the air when she gets a stupid epiphany as she muses that when a person is possessed by an obsession, the best thing to do is to just plow on through.
Panel 3: Sleep, she surmises, becomes not only secondary but also impossible.
Panel 4: Then again, her lack of sleep could be related to the eleven cups of coffee she downed.
Summary: The payoff to this stupid arc is due Monday when it's revealed that consuming mass quantities of coffee and myopia that can never be speculated upon meant that it was all for nothing.
