Panel 1: As they drive to hockey practice, Mike tells Lizzie to lookit the Sun'cause it's following them.
Panel 2: Lizzie says the Sun doesn't follow them; since Mike is stupid, he says yeah-huh, it does.
Panel 3: Lizzie explains that no, it doesn't because Miss Lyon explained what happens in kindergarten.
Panel 4: She then 'humorously' stumbles over 'optical illusion' by substituting the more familiar 'obstacle.'
Summary: It wouldn't penetrate Mike's thick skull even if she'd said it properly. History teaches us that he'd rather believe a comforting fairy story that puts him at the centre of things than a truth that makes his presence optional.
