Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 27 November 2010

I wish I could blame the annoyance inspired by Elly's need to stand around ranting about the inconsequential taking precedence over her children's feelings for my later-than-normal post; the reality is that my ISP had server issues. In any event, bellowing at Lizzie and the dog isn't going to solve Elly's problem, is it?

(Strip Number 5953, Original Publication Date, 28 November 1981)

Panel 1: Today's episode of Misplaced Hostility Theater has Elly muttering "Wonderful! There's a sinkful of dishes over there and Michael's dropped his skates and his jacket in the hall! Everywhere I look, there's something to clean up!!"

Panel 2: She then flat-out yells "I spend my life cleaning up after other people and that's what they EXPECT, for Heaven's sake!!"

Panel 3: She then looks at the audience for her rant: a freaked-out Lizzie and Farley.

Panel 4: She then hugs them and says "Sorry, guys; I had to tell somebody."

Summary: I'd tell her to tell Mike and John what's on her mind but, as the Lynnsight will show, she doesn't believe in complaining to the person she's complaining about. Best to bottle it up and yell at a party who isn't involved.
