In today's strip, John reassures Michael that Elly will like the glass angel he bought. This is a sweet enough thing but it leads to something stupid because John suffers brain failure.

(Strip Number 520, Original Publication Date, 16 December 1983)

Panel 1: We find John and Mike at the food court; as John drinks his coffee, Mike wonders if maybe Elly won't like the glass angel. She might, as he says, end up thinking that it's kind of dumb.

Panel 2: John tells Mike that Elly would like anything he bought her because it came from him.

Panel 3: Mike asks if John is telling the truth, John confirms it and then Mike says that that makes sense.

Panel 4: Mothers are like that.

Summary: While this is a nice scene, John's rather typical inability to do the smart thing and make sure that it doesn't get damaged in transit leads to Mike feeling anxious and himself parting company with another twelve clams.
