Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 4 November 2017

We end the week (but not the arc) with an echo of the "All that time you were paying attention to her, you were never paying attention to me" strip when Connie says that she's ignoring Lawrence to focus on ham-fistedly alienate the girls being all things to no people.

(Strip Number 5043, Original Publication Date, 4 November 1988)

Panel 1: As they put the coffee cups back in the cupboard, Connie tells Elly that putting two families together isn't easy.

Panel 2: There have been so many confrontations, so many talks, so many times she's said to herself that she can't DO this.

Panel 3: Since as far as she knows, Idiot Connie has been doing a great job with the girls who flee from her as soon as is plausible, Elly asks her why she feels so inadequate.

Panel 4: Connie says that she's spent so much time to impress Greg's children, she's forgotten her own.

Summary: Given that most of the time, she tended to forget that Lawrence existed and since most of her problem is trying too much of the wrong thing, Monday's panicky blubbering makes more sense than it should.
