Elly Doesn't Do Windows.

Welcome back to the riveting story of "Days of the Olds"

Panel 1 - Boxcar! Boxcar!  I'm going to pretend that Lynn secretly loves us and Boxcar is a shout out to the Foobiverse!  

Also, Iris is now suddenly able to understand that Boxcar! Boxcar! Yes! means "I'm going to take a nap now"?!  How could she become a master of Jim-speak today when yesterday she was a complete twit?

Panel 2 - I can't snark.  This panel, standing on its own, is sweet.  Especially because I just tucked in Albuqwirkydad. :)   I like the way Jim is drawn here.

Panel 3 -  I think an earthquake hit Milborough because the apartment seems to be slanted at a 30 degree angle.  The cat food casserole has reappeared and something seems to be spilled on the counter.   Iris emerges from the bedroom and is instantly shrunk.  Oh Elly has noticed somebody other than herself.  Although I can't tell if it's concern or annoyance.  Iris denies crying either because she is a martyr or does not wish to incur the wrath of Elly.   Elly's hand looks really weird floating in mid-air.

Panel 4 - Elly must be a magician's assistant part time because she is very good at levitating herself at odd angles.  Her nose is about to take over her face too.

Elly is also shocked that Iris is crying.  She really seems incapable of dealing with Iris's perfectly reasonable display of emotion. emotional outburst (not the word I want to use, but can't think of a better one right now.)  Iris's window washing metaphor is a bit glurgy, but not as bad as it could have been.


All in all, not a bad strip.   I'm not overwhelmed with the urge to hurl things at my laptop, at least.  I'm seeing an arc about getting Iris help, yada yada yada...probably will extend into next week.
