The definition of fairness in the Foobiverse....

It's been mentioned beforehand that Lynn loves hamfisted foreshadowing. For instance, years before Mel fell asleep and caused the apartment fire, she beat us over the head with the notion that Mel would fall asleep and start an apartment fire. It was also obvious that John would move into the Tiny Train House and put the Pattermanse up for sale. Add the two things in together, and we have the Housening. It was also obvious that Anthony's marrriage would fall apart leaving Liz, whose return to Whitebread City was also forordained, to pick up the pieces with her parent's approval. What we forgot is that Mike and Dennis both predicted that bad things would happen if they went down this road. Both people had to endure Liz's odd definition of fairness. To her, things are fair if she gets whatever she wants when she wants it. It's clear that the more a Patterson has invested in the Settlepocalypse, the worse he or she behaves. It could be that Lynn had planned all along to show us that following this dream would ruin the family, that we'll spend September watching Elly trying to figure out where it all went wrong.
