Snarky Candiru2

We end the week with John telling Michael a story about his childhood. Since he's heard that particular one before, he likens it to a rerun.

(Strip Number 592, Original Publication Date, 14 April 1984)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find John and Michael in the living room sitting on the sofa. As he drinks a cup of coffee, John tells Mike that he remembers his birthday parties from when he was a child.

Panel 2: He goes on to tell Michael that there was this toy train that he really wanted from what I can only assume would be the Eaton's catalogue. Also, it turns out that his grandmother had made the cake.

Panel 3: In any event, it seems that he did get the train because he describes how shiny his present was. It's at this point that Lizzie comes in and asks if Daddy's telling a story. Mike says "Sort of."

Panel 4: As John drones on, Mike compares his story to a re-run.

Summary: I should think that if there are notes that aren't "No thoughts for today", we'd be getting a lot of static about how television has warped children's minds. Heh. Since television seems to have raised Lynn, that's what I call "hypocrisy." Also, karisu_sama is dead right about this being a rerun of a rerun now.
