Back to the Salt Mines, Stupid: Michael at 44

As I've stated elsewhere, John and Deanna have the annoying habit of accidentally on purpose bringing children into this world in order to short circuit their spouses' ambitions for themselves. Michael himself seemed to have no other purpose than to keep Elly from finishing college, so his wife having an allegedly accidental pregnancy seems like a rough way of balancing the scales. She was gonna give it another shot fifteen years later when, BAM, she learned she was due with April. For some incomprehensible reason, the smug manipulators live in constant dread that their spouses have the initiative to actually leave them, so they force their hands in a repulsive way. I would tend to assume that sometime in the late 2010's, Deanna would grow bored with being the wife of a moderately famous author and envy the halcyon days when Mike was transforming himself into something he was never meant to be: a corporate droid. I'm guessing she'd takea page from the Book of TrainMan and 'accidentally' mix up her birth control again. (N.B. I'm convinced the 'new' birth control scrip was actually Tic-tacs in a medicine bottle, but that's just cynical old me.) Given that Mike really doesn't understand finances all that well, I'm pretty sure she can euchre the poor mook into going back to the rat-race for the sake of his new child.
