Lizzie is too busy stomping on ants to look behind her and stop Farley from stealing the ball.

(Strip Number 4810, Original Publication Date, 5 May 1987)

Panel 1: As the game continues, Brian hits a foul ball that Farley catches.

Panel 2: They call for Elizabeth to get the ball because he's running in her general direction. This is something of a problem because she's too busy stomping on an ant's nest to see exactly which direction Farley is headed.

Panel 3: This means that when Farley runs right past her, she just sort of stands there because she was too busy focused on the wrong thing.

Panel 4: Since she doesn't know what she did wrong, she's the picture of innocence when she asks a gobsmacked Michael "What ball?"

Summary: This is what happens when you bet against a children's boredom coefficient. Sooner or later, they get tired of waiting for things to happen and focus on something else.
