Michael boasts prematurely about getting the savages to bed only to find out that Christopher and Richard see themselves as being entitled to stay up as late as possible.

(Strip Number 1424, Original Publication Date, 20 March 1989)

Panel 1: We find Mike sprawled on the big chair on the phone to Martha. When asked where he is, ee tells her that he's babysitting.

Panel 2: He starts off by saying that it ain't no thing because he finally got the two little creeps he's sitting for to go to bed. Before he can tell her what they're sleeping like, he seems to be hearing silence coming out of the phone.

Panel 3: Since he doesn't hear Martha's voice, he panics and asks "Hello? Hello??" because something cut him off.

Panel 4: It turns out that something is actually someone. This is because Mike goes goggle-eyed when he sees Richard hold up the phone cord that he pulled from out of the wall and ask him what it's for.

Summary: Tomorrow, he compares himself to a POW identifying with his tormentors. Wednesday, he goes into shock because Anne is taking her sweet God-damned time toilet training a child who'll be three in a few months. At no point does he stop acting like it's a war crime that he has to pay attention to children he's obliged to pay attention to.
