Snarky Candiru2

We conclude the ritual castigation of Molly for being a seventeen year old girl by having Elly wish that she knew then what she knows now.

(Strip Number 4851, Original Publication Date, 29 August 1987)

Panel 1: As they get ready to have coffee, Elly reassures that since she was a goofy kid too, Molly will get over Rando.

Panel 2: She tells Connie that her own Rando entranced her so much that she couldn't sleep or eat and spent most of her mental capital fixated on him.

Panel 3: Noticing that Elly has trailed off, Connie demands to know the rest of the story.

Panel 4: Elly says that she failed math because she was so lost in love with a jerk who laughed at her.

Summary: Molly is quite possibly having a similar conversation as we speak. This outcome is not going to please the 1987 Connie because she doesn't like the idea of waiting for her step-daughter to be thirty seven to speak and act like a thirty seven year old woman because she wants her to think like she's thirty seven right the Hell now.
