Lizzie's excitement about being a flower girl is matched by her lack of knowledge of what a flower girl is.

(Strip Number 1101, Original Publication Date, 21 November 1986)

Panel 1: As Mike reads a funny book, Lizzie comes along and tells him that next summer, she gets to be a flower girl.

Panel 2: She goes on to say that Uncle Phil said so and when he and Georgia get married next Summer, she gets to be a flower girl.

Panel 3: In her excitement, she tells Mike that she can't wait.

Panel 4: She also doesn't know what a flower girl is and asks Michael.

Summary: She likes the idea now but won't when she realizes that she has to go way out of her comfort zone and be first in the procession. Being first means being alone and being vulnerable to the Looming Shape Of Imbecile Malice and Envy that still haunts Liz's dreams.
