Further reflections on the missing years...

As we all know, Mike and Lizzie are slightly younger than the human beings Lynn swears that they're not based on. To start with, Lynn subtracted a couple of years from Aaron and Katie's ages so that we could see the Patterson family from the beginning of their story. What we also have to contend with is that Mike and Liz aren't the same number of years apart in age as the Johnston children are. Lynn has always made a meal of how she did that on purpose but, well, she might, as howtheduck suggests, simply be trying to make a virtue of something necessitated by her inattention. There were a few years where she simply seems to have lost track of how old her characters were and, just as she tried to explain away the missing strips in a manner that blamed a courier for her own slipshod habits, she's crowing about how she meant to do something she stumbled into.
