It seems to me that today's strip might be the one in which Elly tells Mike that he doesn't have to be magic to make her feel better; if so, let us all mark time on the fact that she's a slightly better parent in the reprints than she is in the new-ruins.

Panel 1: As Bleary-eyed-red-nosed Elly drives Mike home from KidKraft, he asks her "You still sick, Mom? You look pale; have you got a fever, Mom?" because he's pretending he's Marcus Welby and that's what the TV doctors say.

Panel 2: Mike, who actually talks like a six-year-old, hangs his head as he wishes that he was magic and could make her feel better.

Panel 3: She smiles, hugs him with enough force to make him stick out his tongue and tells him that he already has.

Summary: She isn't going to feel better for much longer; not only is she ensured that she's probably going to be sick enough to miss her next class and thus be forced to quit, she's also got to nursemaid Mike through a bout of whatever she's got.
