Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 22 August 2016

As she gets the kids' school supplies organized, Elly gets lost in nostalgia and freaks out the kids.

(Strip Number 4846, Original Publication Date, 24 August 1987)

Panel 1: Having returned from an office supply store, a beaming Elly tells Mike and Lizzie that she's got their school supplies.

Panel 2: She delights in having acquired new notebooks, pencils, crayons, scissors and other necessities.

Panel 3: She waxes rhapsodic as she tells them she loved getting them when she was young because she loved the look, smell and feel of them.

Panel 4: A little while later, Mike asks John if he can stop watering the hedges to check on Elly; this is because he fears for her sanity because she's upstairs sniffing erasers.

Summary: Look for notes that whine that Laura will not enjoy sniffing a glowing rectangle.
