In today's strip, Michael tells Elly that he wants to wash himself; the reason is so he doesn't disturb the layer of dirt evil, chaos-loving, mother-hating children like himself are supposed to love.

(Strip Number 4373, Original Publication Date, 27 September 1983)

Panel 1: We start things off with Mike telling Elly to leave the washroom so that he can bathe himself.

Panel 2: As she leaves, she tells him to make sure that he does a good job.

Panel 3: He dabs at himself with the washcloth.

Panel 4: He's still covered in what appears to be a year's worth of dirt but declares that that will do.

Summary: The Lynnsight will no doubt be all about how Aaron feared and hated being clean because he hated order and Lynn and loved chaos and squalor and blah-blah-blah. What it won't be about is the need a child has to feel as if he has some control in his life and a mother who despises the idea that her child has free will owing to that making the owning of horses difficult.
