The potluck Settlepocalypse

John's sudden and questionable desire to retire is going to have one annoying side effect based on his impsoing austerity measures on Elly that he himself won't really submit to: it will mean that Elly cannot prove herself the superior mother to Evil Mira by outspending her. Wha it will mean is that she'll prove her superiority in another way: by listing all the friends she has who'll provide for her in her time of need. Deanna already provided the wedding dress so that will set the pattern. Lawrence can be pressured to provide the floral arrangements, for instance. This is because when the Pattersons are "generous", it's with the expectation of being able to call in a marker at a later point. And call they will. We can look forward, then, to a sort of potluck ceremony wherein Elly beats us over the head with who supplied what.
