(Strip Number 7106, Original Publication Date, 31 January 1982)
Panel 1: We start out on a fine winter day as Elly smiles at the storefront if Sobie's Bakery; the reason is his rich assortment of doughnuts.
Panel 2: As the man at the counter looks on, she selects the doughnuts she'd like to buy.
Panel 3: We now fast-forward a bit as she brings them in the house; Mike wants to see the doughnuts she's bought and Lizzie wanna doughnut, wanna jam one. Elly's declaration of 'after supper' sets up the conflict.
Panel 4: Since she doesn't think that she's allowed to give in and since she can never really admit that children see time passing at a different rate than she does lest she admit to being a huffy buffoon causing pointless suffering, Elly turns her back and closes her eyes when Mike grabs onto her leg and pleads pathetically for even half a doughnut.
Panel 5: She then flatly declares that no, they are for AFTER dinner and that's that.
Panel 6: Mike and Lizzie slump off as Elly puts the rest of the groceries away.
Panel 7: Mike then motions to Lizzie to be quiet as they go back to the kitchen.
Panel 8: A delighted Mike yells AH HAH!!!
Panel 9: Reason: as expected, Elly is cramming her face full of doughnuts.
Summary: I don't know about you but I have GOT to see how the Lynnsight justifies this. Possibly Lynn will turn into a Philadelphia lawyer and exclaim that she said nothing about the doughnuts not being for before Elly's supper.
