The first part of a three-parter has Mike wonder why it's taking so long for the Hormone Fairy to arrive.

(Strip Number 4961, Original Publication Date, 5 May 1988)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Mike in the john in his tighty whities reading a book called "Puberty And You."

Panel 2: He looks in the mirror in the hopes of finding facial hair.

Panel 3: He then asks himself that if his body is going through a massive physical and hormonal change right now.....

Panel 4: .....why is it taking so long to show?!

Summary: His slightly age-inappropriate question gets answered with a reminder that John is born to ogle. Also, this is the first of many strips that has Lynn's need to get out from under her mother translate into adding five years to a teenager's age.
