Today's strip depicts Mike and Lizzie as being more prepared for the current contingency than Mommy is.

(Strip Number 797, Original Publication Date, 7 February 1985)

Panel 1: As Elly roots through the cupboards, she tells Richard that since his mommy is running a little late, it seems that he's going to eat dinner at the Pattermanse.

Panel 2: An enthusiastic Mike says that he's going to get the high chair out of the Miracle Crawl Space.

Panel 3: An equally thrilled Lizzie says she's going to get the bibs, plastic plates and baby spoons.

Panel 4: Since Elly remembers that she doesn't have baby food in the house, she asks Richard how he likes his steak.

Summary: It turns out that everyone else in the world being more on the ball than Elly is turns into a thing as the years go on. I remember one time when she goes into full-on flopsweat about how dinner isn't going to be done when there's a cut-away to Mike asking Liz what side the dessert forks go on.
