It seems to me that Lynn might skip over the strip that has Mike wish the holidays would last a bit longer so we can have RePhil be made into an evil, lying reptilian puppy-eater from another planet who strings lonely women along because he has orders from the Global Conspiracy that consists of every heterosexual male on the face of the Earth to do so. If so, I don't mind; I'd rather watch those bees be ground than the "Oh, woe is me! I have to cleanup my kid's toys" ones.

aprilp_katje can rejoice because the patriarchy will have to mess with Connie tomorrow; it's Elly's turn to be oppressed by the younger members of the cabal.

Panel 1: As Mike and Lawrence are walking back to school, Mike says that the trouble with the holidays is that they're over too fast; Lawrence agrees with him.

Panel 2: As she surveys the clutter he left behind, Elly says that the trouble with the holidays is that they last too long.

Summary: Once again, Elly's stupidity has bit her on the ass. Did it occur to her to teach Mike to pick up after himself? Probably but she called a halt to things when he started showing signs of defiance by doing things in a way that made sense to him instead of slavishly copying her. Simply put, she's waiting for him to admit that her way is the only way. The end result of that is that he grew up to be a slob.

ETA: If Lynn doesn't decide to insert a new-run that hits us over the head with the fact of Phil's departure, we'll see Connie whining in her coffee that like'em and leave'em is the story of her life tomorrow.

ETA2: Lynn is back from Christmas holidays and to point that out, she has a new banner on her site.
