Mike interprets a note from Elly in a rather self-serving fashion.

Panel 1: When he and Liz get home from school, Mike notices that no one is home and asks where everyone is.

Panel 2: We next see him at the kitchen counter reading a note from Elly that says that she's at work and will be home at five.

Panel 3: Liz asks if the note is from Elly and if so, what does it say.

Panel 4: As he reaches into the cupboard, Mike tells her that they can open a box of Fudge-O-Bars and have six each.

Summary: This wanton display of ruining his appetite for Little Orange Surprise (the surprise that that despite it being banned by an international treaty protecting us from biological weapons, Elly is never jailed for violating the Geneva Convention by serving it) is the first half of a two-parter that foreshadows Elly's Nag-By-Note system AND reminds us that Mike is a dumb kid who thinks he's more grown up than he is. Also, the Aaron of this time period was chunkier than Lynn thought right and she has to nag him by strip.
