Panel 1: Today's strip starts off with Elly and Connie walking Farley; since it's winter, it's snowing for no reason. As they walk on the sidewalk, Connie says "I've decided to to take a few days off, El; I never took a break at Christmas, so..."
Panel 2: "...I thought I'd drive to Montreal, do some shopping, visit some friends....and I could drop off Phil's pipe while I'm there."
Panel 3: As Elly gives her the Penetrating Death Stare, Connie tells her not to look at her like that because she's not chasing Phil.
Panel 4: She then thought-bubbles that she's just running in his direction; since we have to see her and Elly's rumps, she'd be better off running somewhere that isn't to a man's place or a Timmie's.
Summary: It's too bad that Elly is glaring at her for returning the pipe instead of acting like she's in middle school; then again. since nobody in this strip has an adult concept of romance, it's to be expected.
