Snarky Candiru2

The Rhetta-phant in the living room.

To continue on with my look at Elly's war against having a social life that isn't one hundred percent vetted by her, it's not as if seeing the back end of Martha soothed Elly's jangled nerves. The same moron who wrung her hands because her boy wasn't running to Mommy with every little thing and sharing every secret like a dummy went from fearing the vitality of Martha to fearing a different stupid thing about Rhetta: her ties to her family.

Elly's panicky bleating about how she wanted to TIE MICHAEL DOWN TO MILBOROUGH RIGHT OUT OF UNI when he was supposed to be allowed his nomadic phase before seeing how terrible the outside world actually was sort of proves some Republican dude's glib pronouncement that hippie is short for hypocrite right. She didn't mind Mike being tied down to a boring suburb so she wouldn't have to resent her own dumb choices....she just wanted it to be all on her own terms.
