Today's strip finds John and Elly at the restaurant. They're enjoying themselves until Elly looks around and tells John that she swears that a mutual acquaintance of theirs is with a woman who isn't his wife; John's appreciative leer irritates Elly (and me).

(Strip Number 4388, Original Publication Date, 29 November 1983)

Panel 1: We find John and Elly at the restaurant. As John starts to tell Elly that she was right about a night to themselves being a good idea, he notices that she's staring intently at one of the other diners and asks her what she's looking at.

Panel 2: She tells him she could swear that the man she's looking at is a man they know named Fred Willis and wonders who he's with.

Panel 3: Since the man's plus-one is a fairly attractive woman, Elly sympathizes with June Willis and wonders if Fred's seeing someone else.

Panel 4: John's leer as he says that Not-June is something else irritates Elly.

Summary: While I know that Elly decides to give this other guy a piece of her mind, you'd think that she'd start with John first. My guess is that Not-June is thinking "I need to take a shower but I don't know why" right about now.
