(Strip Number 561, Original Publication Date, 1 March 1984)
Panel 1: We start things off with a pissed-off looking John tapping on the bathroom door and asking Lizzie if she's washing or simply playing in the tub. (Hint: the latter is a no-no.)
Panel 2: Lizzie tells him that she's washing.
Panel 3: As she dunks the scale in the tub, she thought-bubbles that he never asked her what she was washing.
Summary: Great. Super. A sitcom kid 'fooling' a sitcom idiot dad. Ah, well. At least it isn't him being pissed off because he doesn't get the blind, fearful obedience his fragile ego and immature nature make him crave; that comes tomorrow. What bothers me is that the notes aren't going to come within a kiloparsec of the elephant in the bathroom: John using propriety as an excuse to stupidly endanger his child. We're just going to get another Little Lynnie show or something.
