Today's strip is the one in which the library offers Elly the job as Children's Program Co-ordinator. As expected, she's very happy that her volunteerism paid off.

(Strip Number 539, Original Publication Date, 19 January 1984)

Panel 1: We begin with Happy Muppet Mouth Elly holding a letter and telling John that they've offered her a job....an actual JOB!!

Panel 2: Having handed John the letter, she explains that the librarians offered her the children's programme co-ordinator thing.

Panel 3: She then reminds him that if she hadn't been an unpaid intern at the Valley Voice, this never would have come along.

Panel 4: Her gushing about how she was right that working for nothing paid off confuses him.

Summary: And thus begins about ten or eleven years worth of strips wherein Elly's whiny kids get in the way of her job satisfaction. Also, April's naughtiness caused the budget to get cut and Elly to get downsized.
