For some unguessable reason, Elly commandeers John's bathrobe to serve as a costume in Mike's Christmas play. The "joke" is that John is either too stupid or too cheap (or both) to have more than one bathrobe.

(Strip Number 769, Original Publication Date, 20 December 1984)

Panel 1: We fast-forward an hour to find Lizzie asking Mike where Daddy is. Mike sets things up by saying that he's in the shower with a bag over his cast.

Panel 2: She then asks if Daddy is going to be able to see the Christmas play after all despite his injuries. Mike hopes so.

Panel 3: That's because he gets to be Joseph this year. He then shows up the neat costume Mom found him.

Panel 4: We then switch focus to a dripping-wet John asking Elly where his bathrobe is.

Summary: As you might have guessed, Lynn is probably working backwards again. She started with the punchline and asked herself what the best start should have been.
