Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 28 June 2010

As the week begins, we remind ourselves that Poor Lonely, Needy, Desperate Connie is still fixated on Phil.

(Strip Number 4026, Original Publication Date, 29 June 1981)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly and Connie drinking coffee; as she puts down her cup, Connie asks Elly if she ever hears from Phil.

Panel 2: Elly says that she does; she goes on to explain that he's busy teaching now and has six students. This makes Connie smile.

Panel 3: She then wistfully says that she wishes Phil could teach her something.

Panel 4: She then makes the sort of stupid face Lynn does when she gets in front of a camera as she says that she can't play a note but she can sure pucker.

Summary: The good news is that this and tomorrow's are not a lead-in to a repeat of February's madness; the bad is that they're a lead-in to the Plot That Ate July wherein the Pattersons go to what they don't find out isn't Ted's cabin until they get home.
