In yesterday's strip, we saw Mike's stunned reaction to his discovery that Meredith wasn't all that impressed with the results of all the tickitackatapping that kept him away from her. Let's see what he does about it, shall we? A better man would be chastened. The Delicate Genius will either be angered at her ingratitude, howl about being unappreciated or both, thereby proving himself a male Elly.

Hmmm... Not today. Maybe Saturday. Maybe never.

Panel 1: We find ourselves at the Weeder/Steen residence. Jo tells Mike that he's going to be famous. Mike responds by saying that all he wants is to make a decent living, not become a celebrity.

Panel 2: Weeder punnily says that'll be easy to do if sales figures of Blood Cargo are as great as Stone Season. Mike's repsonse is to say that he isn't doing badly either.

Panel 3: Weed repsonds that he's paying down two mortgages and building up a healthy bank balance. Dee's response is to state that life is good. I agree with that in principle because while money cannot buy happiness, it makes misery more entertaining.

Panel 4: They all toast to climbing the ladder.

Panel 5: This leads Mike to ask them to remember those who helped them get on that first rung. In what spirit is left unclear. Equally unclear is what happened to his oddly misshapen right arm.

Hypothesis: In real life, Mike would be asking them to be grateful to those who helped them. Given how big a jerk he is, his remark might just as easily be an invitation to point and laugh at the also-rans.
