In today's strip, the novelty of people-watching wears off causing Mike to revert to his mildly-annoying self; the astonishing thing is how astonished Lynn is by his behavior.

(Strip Number 299. Original Publication Date, 5 August 1982)

Panel 1: We start things off with a smiling Mike motioning for Lizzie to be silent as they hover over a snoring man I'll call Mr Proboscis.

Panel 2: The next thing we know, Proboscis is telling Elly, who's reading the paper, that Mike dropped a marble in his mouth while he was sleeping.

Panel 3: It's difficult to explain exactly what Elly means when she asks him why he did that; her need to understand what caused him to do so is probably mixed with her need to ask him why she has to supervise him and not have a life.

Panel 4: Be that as it may, I think that Lizzie's telling her that that's all he could find is cute enough.

Summary: The notes are definitely going to slam Aaron for having the same low tolerance for boredom that's perfectly all right for his mother.
