Here we go with another punny strip.
Panel 1: We see Elly welcome a returning Iris home. Iris returns her greeting.
Panel 2: Iris thanks Elly for staying with Jim and that she appreciated the time away. A nastier person would have added that it took her long enough.
Panel 3: She then says that Jim is probably tired of looking at her face day-in, day-out. He says "No" to this. After all, he needs all the stability he can get.
Panel 4: She responds to this by reminding him that he's stuck with her. She reinforces this by using synonyms for adhesion.
Panel 5: He responds by thought-bubbling a pun about how the feeling is mucilage. I wonder how many people will get the joke.
Summary: A sweet enough strip but it's one that should have been run a long time ago instead of having to watch flashbacks.
ETA: Watch Elly and Iris agree Jim is finally healthy enough to go to Sunset Acres.
