In today's strip, we find that Elly has a more receptive audience in Anne when discussing the key benefit of her internship: talking to human beings instead of the little strangers who make all those demands that make her feel inadequate.

(Strip Number 4215, Original Publication Date, 3 September 1982)

Panel 1: We find ourselves either back at Anne's house or at the food court as Elly tells her friend that she needs this chance because he hasn't worked for so long.

Panel 2: Besides, her intern gig is only for a couple of mornings a week.

Panel 3: The big plus sign to her is that it she'll get to do different things and try skills she hasn't used in ages.

Panel 4: The manic grin on her face when she describes the almost-forgotten skill 'Talking to grown-ups' puts a less manic grin on Anne's face.


Summary: This is because Anne remembers that Elly's fear of failure and mental rigidity make motherhood an ordeal for herself and her children; putting Lizzie in playcare might just help settle her friend down.....if she can avoid feeling guilty about feeling good.
