Calm Candiru

Saturday, 25 July 2009

Lynn seems to save Saturdays for making John look like a dick so we're bound to have him say or do something foolish. My guess is that he'll whine that he wanted to go to the park too.

Well, I'm right about whining being involved.

Panel 1: We start off with Elly pushing Lizzie on the swing as Connie looks on; Mike and Lawrence are running around like the children they are.

Panel 2: As Connie and Lawrence walk home, she waves goodbye to the Pattersons' silhouettes.

Panel 3: We jump in time to the evening meal as Elly dishes out some Cheapie Weenie Casserole.

Panel 4: As she tucks Mike in for what she hopes is the night, Elly thought-bubbles "Well, I'd say it's been a very successful day."

Panel 5: She thought-bubbles as she walks down the hall "The kids wore out before I did." It should be noted that she looks as if she bore witness to an atrocity instead of watching her kids enjoy a pleasant afternoon in the park.

Summary: Gee, what a cheery thing to think. I know that raising kids isn't easy but could someone offer Elly some Prozac and some therapy?
