It seems to me that we just might be settling comfortably in gag-a-day strips for a while. If that's the case, we can look forward to Elly forming the Triangle of Horror when faced with predictable things she never seems to see coming no matter how many times she's seen them happen before.

Oh, dear. Lizzie's still crying and Elly still can't figure out why.

Panel 1: Today's reprint starts with Elly asking a bawling Lizzie what's wrong. Does something hurt? Is it a sore tummy?

Panel 2: Elly reminds herself that Lizzie has no pins (whatever that may mean) or fever and then asks if she's either teething or hungry.

Panel 3: Having never learned that colic does not present with a fever and that screaming like a banshee cannot calm children down, Elly desperately asks Lizzie to tell her what's wrong. She also alarms anyone with a shred of decency by shaking Lizzie violently.

Panel 4: She then thought-bubbles that her life would be easier if children were born speaking English.

Summary: We're in for a week of Elly being at wits' end because she can't figure out what's wrong with Lizzie. Yay.
