Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 24 August 2015

We begin the week with Lizzie making Mommy roll her eyes when she unintentionally reveals that Annie doesn't really trust her or Christopher with Leah.

(Strip Number 1082, Original Publication Date, 25 August 1986)

Panel 1: As Elly types something up, she's interrupted by Lizzie who tells her that Christopher's mommy is letting them take Baby Leah for a walk.

Panel 2: The same Elly who dragooned five year old Mike into being Lizzie's primary caregiver makes a ridiculous comment about how she wouldn't trust them with a baby.

Panel 3: Lizzie tells her that Christopher's Mom says she does trust them and that they can go anywhere they want.

Panel 4: When Lizzie reveals that 'anywhere' is actually Anne's back yard, Elly rolls her eyes.

Summary: Elly should actually be smirking like Les Moore here; that's because Annie will be looking out the window at them at all times because she doesn't actually trust them.
