Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 17 October 2011

We begin an arc in which Elly does a good turn for an overworked and overwhelmed Annie with John being confused that the pot roast she's cooking isn't for him.

(Strip Number 321, Original Publication Date, 18 October 1982)

Panel 1: We start things off with John, who's entranced by the scent of Elly's cooking, asking her what she's making.

Panel 2: She tells him that she's got two pies and a roast in the over and a casserole in the microwave.

Panel 3: He tells her that it smells so wonderful, his mouth is watering. She says "Good."

Panel 4: Her telling him that it's not for them takes a lot of the wind out of his sails.

Summary: Tomorrow, she has to explain to him that she's doing this because people in Annie's situation don't have a lot of free time; it doesn't, of course, take owing to his brains being made of concrete but, hey, she tried.
