Lizardbreath, the Official Story.

As you know, the Michael of the new-ruins is being touted as a Delicate Genius in short pants. Instead of the sullen, destructive, pouting, hostile and dirt-ordinary little boy of the real past, we have a misunderstood savant with bundles of creative potential and a freakishly advanced vocabulary going unrecognized by his harried parents; once they discover his hidden brilliance, an age of miracle and wonders will descend upon a grateful world. Lynn's own website has given us a hint of his unrecognized genius: his love of punning names. The example that she gives is his noticing that the name Elizabeth sounds like the phrase 'lizard breath'. The real Mike, of course, was being a spiteful jerk. The new-ruin version is being whimsical and also (as howtheduck has said) possibly referring to a shameful family secret: the fact that the Patterson women have breath that would curdle milk in the cow. The way things are going, I wouldn't be shocked if Mike's spirit guide told him to call her that.
