Royally Peeved Candiru

Monday, 25 August 2014

We begin the week with Lizzie getting ready for her first day of kindergarten; as she gets dressed, she successfully predicts that Mommy will bawl her eyes out and wail about how fast her BABY!!!!!!! is growing.

(Strip Number 926, Original Publication Date, 26 August 1985)

Panel 1: As she gets Lizzie dressed for the day, Elly tells her that she doesn't want to be late for her first day of kindergarten.

Panel 2: When Lizzie asks Mommy if she's comin'wif her, Elly smiles and says "Of course."

Panel 3: As Elly brushes her hair, Lizzie asks her if she's comin'into the room wif her. Again, Elly smiles and says "Of course."

Panel 4: When Lizzie asks Elly if she's gonna cry, Elly looks as if she's experiencing a tragedy too bleak to know and moans "Of course."

Summary: While jjamele is quite right to assume that if Coffee Talk still existed, people would gush about how Lynn has a camera in their houses, what we know and they don't is that Elly is standing around wailing "My BABY!!!! is growing up TOO FAST!!!!!! Soon, I'll be OLD and never have done ANYTHING!!!! WAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!"
