Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 5 October 2009

Now that Lynn has "explained" what happened to the Sobinskis, it's entirely possible that she'll somehow set up the "Connie goes to Montreal" arc just so we can have a bit more implausible misery.

Connie is present but she's not the focus; what we get is a crappy lead-in to the Elly-goes-to-night-school story arc. This should be good for a couple of laughs.

Panel 1: We start the week with Elly, Connie and the kids walking down Main Street going window-shopping; Elly tells Connie that she sure enjoyed working at the clinic; Connie says "Yeah?" so she can find out why.

Panel 2: The reason why is that Elly liked getting out every day, working with the public and using her brains.

Panel 3: Her silhouette goes on to reminds us that she also liked wearing nice clothes, putting her hair up in a bun and looking professional for a change.

Panel 4: Connie asks her how she feels now that it's over and she's stuck with the kids again; Elly likens herself to Cinderella after the ball by saying that her coach has turned into a pumpkin.

Summary: I know that raising children is not at all easy but Elly seems to regard the tough-but-necessary task in front of her as a burden too difficult to bear as well as a tragedy too bleak to know. This is, of course, because of her inane self-absorption which requires her to feel that nobody anywhere in human history has ever suffered as much as she has and never will.
