Snarky Candiru2

The one where we're supposed to find it a bizarre reverse that Liz wants her friends to think she's a lot more casual about heading to the bus stop than she actually is.

(Original Publication Date, 4 September 1991)

Panel 1: Today's strip is brought to you by heavy-handed onomatopoeia. That's because Liz was dawdling (meaning washing off make-up) so has to run out the front door and have it SLAM! behind her.

Panel 2: She PUFF-PUFF-PUFFS for breath as she heads to the bus stop.

Panel 3: Now that she's in sight of it, she SCREECHES to a halt.

Panel 4: As Christopher and Dawn look on, Liz SHUFFLES and SAUNTERS casually towards them.

Summary: Tomorrow and Friday are also about how normal behaviour for kids that age is either silly or wrong because Lynn learned the wrong lessons growing up.
