We're probably in for a new-ruin that has a mildly better Elly feel mildly worse because Mike has more crud coming out of his nose (if we're lucky) than his clay monster head.

I wish; it's Connie, the saboteur friend making Elly feel bad about herself.

Panel 1: As Connie pours a nice cup of tea, she asks a seated Elly if she's enjoying her writing course; Elly says that she is but she's missed a few classes.

Panel 2: it seems that it's a week since Mike wished he was magic; that's because she mentions that both Lizzie and she were sick the previous week. She also mentions that a few weeks before that, John had a meeting and they couldn't find a sitter.

Panel 3: She tells Connie that things like that are so frustrating because this is something she wants to do; she, you see, wants to WRITE.

Panel 4: Connie asks her if she's done her Christmas newsletter yet.

Panel 5: As Elly sighs in despair, Connie says that good friends ask good questions. If that's so, what sort of friend makes someone feel worse about something?

Summary: The official line is "Connie doesn't seem to realize that she's not being a good friend at all; a better friend would have picked up on what Elly was saying and tried to reassure her. Since Connie is self-absorbed and dim, she screwed up and antagonized Elly without even seeing what she did wrong." My personal opinion is that Connie could have told her that she doesn't need a degree to write despite what the Man (or a train-loving man) says.
