Today's strip affords Mike a minor victory; that's because Brad is at the flower shop to pick up an order for his mother.

(Strip Number 851, Original Publication Date, 10 May 1985)

Panel 1: Mike's nightmare comes true as Brad comments on how Nerdhead hangs out in flower shops.

Panel 2: As Mike protests, the malformed brute then tries to play keep-away with the proof that Mike is a good kid who makes being a mother just fine.

Panel 3: Before he can toss them to the ground and laugh at Mike's misery, Marian the Proprietor calls his name.

Panel 4: She then exposes HIM to derision by reminding him that the carnations he ordered for his mother are ready.

Summary: This, as I said, is somehow meant to put an exclamation mark on the statements "Aaron!!! Quit being a big baby telling crazy lies about how much they cost and GET ME FLOWERS!!!" and "Men are just big chickens who think that going into flower shops makes them look like sissies and cover themselves by telling crazy lies about how something everyone knows costs the five dollars I spent in 1967 is somehow thirty dollars!!"
