We begin an arc that shows us a typical day in Mike's life with his taking pride in being a slob who hates cleanliness and order and motherhood at school too.

(Strip Number 853, Original Publication Date, 13 May 1985)

Panel 1: We find ourselves at school today watching Mike standing next to his locker smiling as he manages to gross out his friends with the contents of a paper bag.

Panel 2: Lawrence asks him if he's maybe got a science experiment in there or somethin'.

Panel 3: Mike beams as he says that he's close.

Panel 4: He then leaves Lawrence gobsmacked by telling him that it's a cheese sandwich that's been in his locker since before Christmas holiday.

Summary: Panel Five should have had Malory Archer show up and say "And THIS is how we get ants." Anyhow, a lot of us have forgotten stuff in lockers owing to inattention, carelessness and forgetfulness. Few of us are proud of it.
