Sadly, we were just given a temporary reprieve. We end the week with Connie writing a personal ad.
Panel 1: We start off with her ticka-tacka-tapping "Lonely divorcee, Age 35, One Child, Seeks Companionship" on a keyboarded writing instrument. Is it a manual typewriter? An IBM Selectric? A computer? We are not shown so that Lynn may pretend that this strip is timeless.
Panel 2: It seems that she found her original pitch unsuitable as she changes it to "Sincere single woman with child seeks relationship with...."
Panel 3: Her frustration at not being able to put her needs into words makes her yell that the whole exercise is futile as she'll only attract a loser or deviant this way.
Panel 4: She then reminds us that she's a man-hungry nitwit with no self-regard by stating that a horrible relationship is better than nothing.
Summary: Given that she's doing this, I think that the trip to Montreal might have been averted. Too bad that her pursuit of the smug, chauvinistic jackhole Momma's boy Ted has not.
