We end the week with Mike making an age-inappropriate comment about how simpler life was way back when he was what a normal ten year old would call a stupid baby he doesn't want to be like.

(Strip Number 946, Original Publication Date, 21 September 1985)

Panel 1: We find Mike at home putting his jacket in the closet. As he does so, he asks Lizzie how her day at kindergarten was. She says it was fun.

Panel 2: When she asks him if he wants to hear the new song she learned, he agrees to give it a listen.

Panel 3: As she sings her little ditty about the bunny who won't stop, Mike thought-bubbles that he wishes that he was younger.

Panel 4: That's because life was simpler back when he didn't have to take Social Studies.

Summary: Once again, we're left dealing with an unrealistic comment no child would actually make because he's being made into the mouthpiece for a woman sick with nostalgia. Ah, well. Tune in next week when Mike is evil because he doesn't realize that Elly is always right....especially when she's wrong.
