Yesterday's strip depicted John getting a funny concussion; given how cavalierly Lynn treats the subject of household safety, perhaps Lizzie will drink drain cleaner in an amusing fashion.

It's Annie being an annoyance.

Panel 1: We start off with Anne's silhouette hanging a load of clothes on a line to dry. As she does so, Elly walks up to her and says "Anne! You're hanging the laundry." Anne cheerfully responds "It's a good day for it, El."

Panel 2: As she finishes hanging a pink towel up, she says "With the fresh air blowing, I thought 'Why use the dryer when Mother Nature can do the job?'"

Panel 3: She then says "And the clean, sweet scent and the lower utility bill makes it all worthwhile."

Panel 4: We shift to the laundry room at the Pattermanse as Elly prepares, as she does every day, to wash every article of clothing not being worn.

Panel 5: She thought-bubbles 'Good enough' as she puts a Whiff-O-Spring dryer sheet into load number billion-zillion.

Summary: We're meant to think that Elly is resisting Anne's attempt to browbeat her into changing her ways; too bad that we know that Elly's too stubborn to mount any other response than grumbling about smart-alecks who eat organic foods and dry clothes on a line while plodding along on the course she always does.
