(Strip Number 248, Original Publication Date, 17 April 1982)
Panel 1: We start things off with Mike, who's got a red, runny nose asking Elly for a Kleenex.
Panel 2: Next, we see Lizzie asking Elly if she can have a story-whimper-sniff-huh-mama??
Panel 3: As she brings him his cup of hot lemon, John marvels that she hasn't caught this flu like the rest of them.
Panel 4: Instead of smiling when she says she hasn't had the time like an Erma Bombeck, Elly looks as if she's been subjected to the sort of ill-defined but baleful torment the Yahoovians think we wanted to inflict on Assthony.
Summary: I don't know if this is a lead-in to her getting sick but being expected to still do a full day's housework (even though that's what I expect) or not; what I do know is that she takes every damned thing too blasted seriously. Why, she can't even enjoy having a more effective immune system than her husband and children. Everything's got to lead to her being tormented like no one on this Earth ever has been or ever will be.
