As I said last year during the camping trip, John's satisfaction with all the good things he's already got doesn't last very long. He wants something to fill the void NOW!!! and it shows.

(Strip Number 1229, Original Publication Date, 30 November 1987)

Panel 1: As he drives home, John wonders what could be happening to him. He's healthy, he's got a good job...

Panel 2: ....he's got a wonderful home, two great kids and a loving wife. Who could want more?

Panel 3: He thinks about this for a second.

Panel 4: He yells that HE wants more.

Summary: The interesting thing about John is that his mid-life crisis ends pretty much when his second childhood begins. I blame his and Elly's irritating habit of never outgrowing the childhood habit of assuming that someone who's forty has one and one half feet in the grave.
