Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for October 10, 1995
Calvin: My leaf collection is doomed! I can't believe Mom wouldn't take me to the arboretum. No wonder I get bad grades! Hobbes: Well, you did spring the idea on her at the last second.. Calvin: That's when I thought of it! The problem is that Mom's not flexible. What a stupid waste of time this is! I wish there was some way out of this assignment.
