Panel 1: So Elly applied to several universities and only got into one? Is that what you're saying, Mike? Hmmmm. (PS- No offense to anyone here who had the same situation; all snark in this post is reserved solely for the Pattersons, of course.) Merrie looks a little bored already.

Panel 2: I have to say, Elly looks good. The nose doesn't look like a tuberous vegetable just yet and the red sweater and silver hoop earrings become her. But it must be hard to read with your eyes closed. John's a little creepy, peeking from behind the stacks like that.

Panel 3: Well, not much to say here, other than that John's eyeball appears focused on the reader, rather than the object of his interest.

Panel 4: Her mouth is closed, John. How do you know she has nice teeth? (Or ARE those her teeth? They look more like Lips of Loveliness to me.) I just now noticed that neither John nor Elly have said a word to each other up until this point. It's like John just followed her out of the library, all puppy-like, and now they've stopped and are just standing there grinning at each other like a bunch of idiots. Did they have pepper spray back in the late sixties? Because I bet Elly's wondering how quickly she can grab it out of her bag.

In all seriousness, though, this strip isn't so bad. It's actually kind of cute. I must point out that it was very hot here today and I probably baked my brain. So take my compliments with a grain of salt.
