Snarky Candiru2

John tries once again to warn Elly that he freezes up when in the company of large groups of people but it doesn't really take.

(Strip Number 359, Original Publication Date, 28 December 1982)

Panel 1: John tells a sulking Elly that he's sorry but he's never really liked parties.

Panel 2: In the company of two or three people. he's fine but he falls apart in a crowd.

Panel 3: Since her need to be thought of as a hostess weighs far more on her mind than the trivial consideration of whether John can survive her party, she whines that twelve people have already accepted hertheir invitation. He says that he knows.

Panel 4: He then promises to try to fall apart graciously.

Summary: The interesting thing is that the Lynnsight indicates that it's Lynn herself that has a problem with crowds; Rod, you see, is quite the social lion and it probably bothers her.
