Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 19 November 2016

We end the Avocado Head arc with Elly being perplexed by Mike's having a 24 hour bug on a Friday and being fine on Saturday.

(Strip Number 4893, Original Publication Date, 21 November 1987)

Panel 1: Having noticed that he's outside with two silhouettes, Elly calls Mike back into the house because he's too sick to play outside.

Panel 2: Mike assures her that he feels fine.

Panel 3: Elly can't see how he's fine today when he was on death's door yesterday and asks why that is.

Panel 4: When he tells her that it's Saturday, she's staggered.

Summary: Elly seems to have just now realized that Mike was exaggerating how sick he was because he wanted a three-day weekend at her expense. This will hurt him when he actually is sick because it'll be the "they never actually call you negligent" incident all over again. Ah, well. Time for John's love affair with sports cars to begin.
