Elizabeth embarrasses Elly without help by Michael by running around naked and being too young to understand what tact is.

(Strip Number 1624, Original Publication Date, 13 July 1989)

Panel 1: In the here-and-now, Elly tells Elizabeth "You grew up so fast....soon, you were dressing and undressing yourself."

Panel 2: We see what she's glossing over when we do a callback to Elly having to chase after Lizzie because she's running down the street in the buff again.

Panel 3: She then tries to put the best face on the lack of tact most three year olds have by telling her that when she was three, she was speaking in clear and complete sentences.

Panel 4: The Elly of the past is gobsmacked when Lizzie points at a mildly irked bald man and cheerfully yells "Look, Mom! There's a man wif no hair!!"

Summary: Yet again, Elly is saying one thing which sounds nice but means a not-so-nice thing because all she can remember are the bad times.
