    But the Ellyhaters can’t let a day go by without snarking at Elly and Debbydowning other reader’s days…
    -
    Debbydowning? My internet searching did not find a definition for that term.

    4. Luann isn’t drunk, just caught in mid motion checking her décolletage pulling it up since gravity is always on.
    -
    Décolletage doesn’t explain those eyes.

    Every marriage is different. My mom and dad always told each other when someone had hit on them (they’re still alive, just no longer at an age when they get hit on alot), they thought it was hilarious and neither felt threatened. Some marriages are like that, some aren’t. As long as it works and both people are happy, yes?
    -
    That last part is the tricky bit. John seems to be concerned that Elly will find someone better than he, so he doesn’t sound as laissez-faire as your parents.

    Too bad he completely missed that Elly went because someone else could not and the tickets, hotel and conference were paid for by the library, not John.
    -
    I didn’t miss that. What I was referring to was Elly’s declaration last week that she wants to travel without her family more in the future (and if you go further back you can find the strip where Claire suggested that Elly make her next trip a longer one than 2 days). This implies an intention of travel which does not rely on the library. Also, I am pretty sure John was the one paying the bills on the shopping spree which occurred before and during the trip, not the library.

    How in the world is “Sure!” the proper answer to “Did you compare me to anybody?” The answer is “No!” If I gave my spouse that answer of “Sure”, there would be some explaining to do. We readers know that Elly was with Claire the whole time, but John does not need to know that. Plus Elly shouldn’t be dropping any hints with her talk of traveling alone and meeting new people, if she wants John to pay the bills for her next trip to go travel “alone” and get away from the family.
    -
    As for comparing John to Claire, I think he’s better-looking and he has to bring home a lot more money as a dentist than Claire does as a librarian. I agree with Elly. There is no comparison. John wins over Claire!

    A few questions:

    1.I thought the limo ride was for Quill and Gunther and Luann and Rosa. So, where is Gunther? He and Quill live together. Wouldn’t they take the limo together to get Luann and then go together to get Rosa?
    -
    2.How many times will Luann make fun of Quill’s cummerbund before the night is over (panel 1)?
    -
    3.How soon after Luann made fun of Quill’s cummerbund did he start buttoning his jacket to cover it (panel 2)?
    -
    4.How did Luann get so drunk and have a wardrobe malfunction (in panel 3) before she even left her house?
    -
    5.Is the hand through the window in panel 4 Luann waving goodbye or Quill asking for help as Luann assaults him immediately after getting in the car? After all, the limo will not have the space issues they had when they were in Luann’s car.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    This was pre-microwave…but still a fast-food luxury!

    -
    By 1985, when this comic strip was published, my family had a microwave. Lynn Johnston, on the other hand, had a hired cook/housekeeper. While the microwave is less expensive than hiring a cook to prepare your meals, my guess is that the food is a lot better with the hired cook.

    Be nice! This is a forum where anecdotes spurred by the day’s comic are often shared. You may even want to share one when you progress to sentences of more than two words.
    -
    Good response!

    Luann has black blood? Is she a vampire or some kind of undead thing or what?
    -
    I suspect Gunther’s cummerbund has sucked all the color out of Luann’s blood.
