We begin another tiny little look at why Mike is a terrible student when Brian's stealth criticism of his malingering sails over his empty head.

(Strip Number 1135, Original Publication Date, 13 April 1987)

Panel 1: It's a pleasant Spring day in Sharon Park Lane so we find ourselves at the front door watching Brian ask Michael if he come out and play ball. Mike cannot.

Panel 2: This is because he has a huge homework assignment that's due tomorrow and he has yet to start.

Panel 3: Brian asks him how long ago this project was assigned. Mike tells him "three weeks ago."

Panel 4: Brian makes a mildly waspish comment about how it's too bad he didn't have more time in which to get it done.

Summary: Given Mike's messed-up priorities and lack of discipline, he'd simply have wasted that extra time anyway. He also would have done something else that we'll see Wednesday.
