In today's strip, we find out that Elly has an odd tendency to hoard leftovers.

(Strip Number 4131, Original Publication Date, 23 February 1982)

Panel 1: We start things off with Elly warning John that she's fumigating the fridge; that's not a Canadianism or even an old-fashioned regionalism being passed off as one. What it is is Elly engaged in hyperbole.

Panel 2: He looks inside a Grubberware™ container and asks her what's in it; she has no idea.

Panel 3: Since it's been in the fridge for months and probably isn't safe to eat, he asks her why she hasn't thrown it out yet.

Panel 4: She tells him that it's because it's not moldy yet.

Summary: We're doubtless in for a Lynnsight about how it's a good thing that she saves old leftovers for a rainy day; it'll be as palatable as the casseroles Elly serves her family night after endless night.
