We end the week with Annie reminding us that she eats whenever she gets stressed out. Seriously. That's the 'joke.'

(Strip Number 4099, Original Publication Date, 5 December 1981)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find Annie listening to Elly unload about her troubles; as she makes herself a sandwich, she has to listen to Elly talk about how John's parents are due to arrive in two weeks and she's hardly done a thing.

Panel 2: It would seem that Elly hasn't finished her shopping or done her cards and parcels; as a result, she's going nuts.

Panel 3: She then asks Annie how it is that she always manages to stay cool and collected in the midst of chaos.

Panel 4: Annie swallows because she's not a caveman and tells Elly that she eats.

Summary: She also doesn't waste her time pretending to be Elastic Woman or fretting about how the world is trying to destroy her. It occurs to me that Elly's need to be in a constant state of blind panic eats away at her time almost as much as watching soaps, doing pointless busywork or gossiping.
