Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 2 March 2012

The micro-arc ends with Elly being sooooooo tired from running around after her children (and totally not bored by the book) that she fell asleep while reading her novel.

(Strip Number 4307, Original Publication Date, 4 March 1983)

Panel 1: John looks at his alarm clock and says "Good grief, it's 3 AM!! Elly, haven't you finished that book yet?"

Panel 2: Before waiting for anything like a response, he asks her what kind of novel it is.

Panel 3: Since she fell asleep while reading it, his "Oh" is meant to mean that it's a boring novel.

Summary: The in-strip reason is either that the book is sooooo boring that everybody died or that Elly's not having help or time to herself gives her no time to read.
