The one where Mike is still a dumbass who never sees how much work Elly has to do. So much for the farm making him wonderful, eh?

(Original Publication Date, 30 August 1991)

Panel 1: We start things off with a panicked Elly scrambling because Liz asks her if it's all right that she gave the baby solid food.

Panel 2: Next, she vacuums the floor with a cooing April on her back.

Panel 3: Finally, she takes up Load Number Question Mark Of All Of The Laundry In The House upstairs.

Panel 4: Since Mike didn't see Elly channel the Tasmanian Devil, when he finds her sitting in an easy chair looking like a wrung-out dish rag, he has no idea that he's just made Elly hate him even more when he tells her that she's right about looking older and suggests that she exercise.

Summary: As nearly as I can determine, Lynn has one inflexible rule: Michael will always be the dumb little boy who thinks that Elly was put on this earth to be a housewife and thus all her hard work isn't work. He's a moron. Russian Tooth Fairy needs to come for ALL of his teeth.
