Meet The Gadfly
As you no doubt know, Elly loves to whine about things unfair. What one of those things happens to be is that she is not permitted to barge into other people's houses and order the children who live there around. The reason that I mention this is that she lives next door to the one woman who is not going to mind telling her where to shove her attitude: Carol Enjo.
This is because she makes no secret of how little she really cares about the made-up calamities that oppress the macaroon yelling on the porch and takes pleasure in reminding her of that fact. You'd swear that she was John's mother or something.
