Today's strip is a reminder that John has no idea what Elly's dress size is because he's a man and men can't remember that in Lynn's world.

(Strip Number 353, Original Publication Date, 16 December 1982)

Panel 1: We find our hero at the ladies' wear department trying to buy Elly a dress for Christmas; he stands there looking like he'd been gaffed as a saleswoman asks him "If you don't know her size, do you know her height?"

Panel 2: Her asking him "Her weight? Her measurements?" confuses him all the more.

Panel 3: So does asking him if she's the approximate size of any of the women he sees in the store.

Panel 4: He irritates the woman by asking her if she has anything in one size fits all.

Summary: The Lynnsight will no doubt be all about how MEN are too stupid to remember their wives' measurements while at the same time expecting their pooooooooor, put-upon spouses to remember their own measurements. In short, plus ça change, plus ça même chose.
