In today's strip, John's wanting to re-create the honeymoon Elly doesn't ackowledge them as having collides with her having over-done her fun in the sun.

(Strip Number 215, Original Publication Date, 13 January 1982)

Panel 1: We start off with John looking out the window and noticing how romantic the place is; what he should be looking at is Elly who's got a regretful bug-eyed glare on her face because she's badly sunburnt.

Panel 2: As she rubs Burn-Eze™ burn creme into her skin, John gets all hyper and tells her that this is a chance to re-create their honeymoon.

Panel 3: Her angrily yelling "DON'T TOUCH ME!!" is Lynn's lame-ass attempt at a double-entendre; that's because John is originally left with the impression that she doesn't want icky sex.

Summary: He soon learns otherwise; he also acts like a huge jerk about her flaking on wearing sun-screen.
