(Strip Number 352, Original Publication Date, 15 December 1982)
Panel 1: We find Mike telling Lizzie that no, Christmas is still a long way away. This is no doubt in response to her saying that all she has to do is sleep thirteen times and it'll be here.
Panel 2: This suspicion of mine is seemingly confirmed by his saying that it's days and days and days away.
Panel 3: She replies by making much the same face she will when she yells STOP at that weird Frenchie girl when they drive to her wedding and saying "I be all growed up by then!!"
Summary: As I said, I'd like to think that Lynn would realize and admit that the same ten days that simply zip by before she can really process them seem like an eternity to a child that young; the jaded idiot in me, on the other hand, expects to see a passive-aggressive rant about how unfair it is that children are so blasted impatient.
