In today's strip, Lizzie wants to wear a light summer dress while Elly insists on her wearing pants and a warm sweater. Lizzie's solution is to wear the cute dress over the warm clothes.

(Strip Number 473, Original Publication Date, 3 October 1983)

Panel 1: We start things off with Lizzie holding up a favourite summer dress which she tells Elly that she wants to wear; Elly tells her that it's not warm enough for that particular outfit.

Panel 2: Elly then looks her in the eye and tells her that it's for summer. Since Lizzie is never one to let a weather report to get between her and looking cute, she again says that she wants to wear it.

Panel 3: Elly then tells her to put on a warm sweater and a pair of slacks and that's the end of it. Lizzie's initial response is to cry "Aw, Mama!!"

Panel 4: Her second response is to put the dress on over the sweater and slacks. She looks at herself in the mirror and thought-bubbles "NEAT!! A bit tight maybe but....NEAT!!"

Summary: This is a rather blandish slice of life strip that I don't as such mind seeing. That, sadly, means that we're in for a Lynnsight that will spoil the holy living Hell out of the sweetness.
