Since Lynn seems to be hopscotching around the March strips, it's likely we could see Elly try to get an oblivious Mike to get the lead out only to have him blame her for his own idiocy today.

And I'm right again.

Panel 1: We start off with Elly telling Mike, who's still in his pajamas and playing with blocks, to hurry up and get dressed; he answers "I am".

Panel 2: As he sits there doing something baffling with his juice, Elly tells him to eat his breakfast; he again answers "I am!"

Panel 3: We next see her looking at her watch and telling him that he's late; he yells "I AM??"

Panel 4: Since he's somewhat stupid, he then yells "WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME???"

Summary: The sad thing is that Michael never did get any better at taking the God-damned hint; worse, he also never outgrew blaming other people for things that were his own fault. What's more, Elly never got any better at telling her kids to do stuff; this is the same woman who dropped the ball when it came to telling April to not open the gate. Eventually, the idiot woman would praise herself for being a great communicator.
