Michael the Impractical

I know I've said this before but, aside from getting things he wants, Mike never seems to really think too hard about what the consequences of his behavior will be. As a little boy, he used to think that if he could somehow chase away the blonde-haired little intruder in pink, he'd get the family he wanted back and they'd stop yelling at him. Never did it occur to him that his default hostility towards Lizzie was why they were angry at him because he isn't that bright. His early years were a history of inane scrapes that could have been easily prevented by asking himself the question "What's the worst thing that could happen?" before proceeding on a folly. The odd thing is that his wife and children came into his life due to his lack of foresight. As we know, he first started hanging around his grade-school fling out of remorse because he initally thought of her as a headline instead of a human being. Meredith was, I believe, a deliberate 'accident'. You see, at the time, he and Weed were making plans to travel the world while leaving Deanna at home listening to Mira ask her where Mike was when she needed him. She couldn't let that happen so, "oops", here comes Meredith. Add in Robin to get the 'right' age balance (being just distant enough in age to ensure maximum hatred) and you get that Mike's life happened to him while he wasn't looking.
