In today's strip, Mike can't fasten his seatbelt because he "greedily" asked for some left-over desserts. Wow!! A small child who likes sweets! Who would have thought that could be?

(Strip Number 657, Original Publication Date, 17 July 1984)

Panel 1: As they prepare to land, Mike is startled when the captain comes on the intercom and tells the passengers to fasten their seatbelts.

Panel 2: When Vicky the flight attendant tells Michael to buckle up, he says that he can't.

Panel 3: She applies a little extra force and gets things done despite it making Mike a tad uncomfortable.

Panel 4: Vicky and her co-worker laugh up their sleeves because the belt didn't fit because he'd been mooching all of the leftover desserts.

Summary: This, I should think, was inspired by an incident in which Lynn perceived Aaron to be too greedy for his own good. If only he would eat her good stuffs and lay off sweets, he'd be better off, she thinks.
