We continue on with Lynn's giving John her attribute of rampaging mistrust today; what looks like John simply worrying about his wife's well-being will be transmuted to either a need to control her or fear that she's a cheating cheater.....who cheats!!

(Strip Number 4182, Original Publication Date, 3 June 1982)

Panel 1: We find John drinking coffee and thought-bubbling "This is silly; I'm going to bed."

Panel 2: We zoom out to find him at the kitchen table; he hasn't touched his peanut butter and honey sandwich because he's sort of worried. He consoles himself by thinking to himself that she's just forgotten the time; heaven knows that she of all people deserves a night out.

Panel 3: So, he'll quit worrying and go to bed.....

Panel 4: ...as soon as he hears the hoverwagon pull up in the driveway.

Summary: This is another example of why kefkaownsall hates the notes; they always ruin a sweet strip like this with Lynn's paranoia, immaturity and lack of regard for the feelings of others.

ETA: The June banner would mean more if I weren't worried for the people of Massachusetts.
