Elizabeth confuses Humiliation-sensei by taking her regional expression about picking up her socks literally.

(Strip Number 4724, Original Publication Date, 3 December 1986)

Panel 1: After Lizzie asks why she didn't get a sticker, Miss Blais tells her that her work needs improvement and she'll to pull up her socks.

Panel 2: Since she joins most Americans in not realizing that Miss Wannabe Brit meant "work harder", Lizzie looks down and sees that her socks have rolled down a bit.

Panel 3: She frowns the baffled frown I associate with her and shrugs.

Panel 4: Miss Blais is confused when Elizabeth takes her instructions literally.

Summary: Look for notes that have Lynn wrench her shoulder patting herself on the back for confusing the shit out of her American readers AND making it difficult to sell her strip to non-English speakers because she needs complete creative control and thinks everyone should all stop speaking any language that isn't English so she doesn't have to take subjects that bore and confuse her.
