The very curious thing about the trip.

The very interesting thing about this arc is that while Elly tells herself that she'll have to go away by herself more often, she never actually did. As howtheduck pointed out, it would seem that at some point, Lynn lost interest in sharing her experiences on the road and, as she had before and would afterward, scaled back from her original plans and quietly dropped the whole thing. While she could sort have gotten away with girling Janice up before quietly dropping her (as she will in about a month or so) by saying "Oh, well. Janice's family moved away in 1985" and thereby satisfying we cage-belonging-in picky faces who ask too much of her, not giving Elly an annual solo adventure makes this current one all the more depressing in that it's just another means by which Elly can be tormented by the promise of having an identity that isn't MUM!!! that never comes around again.
