In today's strip, Mike and Lawrence are mildly floored that Mrs Hardacre gave the future delicate genius a fairly good report card. This is because they're seven and don't realize that an adult can like a child but still yell at them for doing something dumb.

(Strip Number 239, Original Publication Date, 6 April 1982)

Panel 1: As he reads his report card, Mike yells 'Holy cow!' as he asks Lawrence to look at it.

Panel 2: It seems that Mrs H said that his work habits are improving, he's doing well in math and is a good listener.

Panel 3: Lawrence asked if she really wrote that owing to her being Mike's worst enemy. (Lawrence? Camera Three; Mike's worst enemy is Mike.)

Panel 4: Mike surmises that she must like him on paper.

Summary: I'm not quite certain that a seven-year old boy would think along those lines; what I am certain of is that we're probably in for a Lynnsight that reminds us that Little Lynnie was a nasty, willful, defiant little pest who lived to torment authority figures because they dared impose order on the chaos she unleashed.
