Amazing. With all that hassling and supervision, Calvin still doesn’t get his homework done.
The struggle is his life .
Look on the bright side, Calvin: you got a kiss.
Calvin sighing because his life is turning into the plot for “Groundhog Day”?
As Henry John Deuschendorf, Jr. (1943-1997) used to say, “Some days are diamonds, some days are stone. Sometimes the hard times won’t leave me alone.”
Don’t worry, Calvin. When you’re a grown-up it won’t get any better.
Preparation for adult life !
Calvin won’t sleep because he’ll be thinking of another rotten day
Ah yes, kids’ and adults’ priorities can so often be different, even at odds with one another! But don’t grow up too quickly Calvin!
Mom, Dad, What can I do?
Bullies you can arrest for assault and battery.
A day in the life of Calvin. Mom was nice in the 2nd las time panel
Wow, another day like that, hot diggity dog! ( Not.)
I would love to see a crossover between this comic and Fort Knox just so Betty Wu could beat the snot out of Mo like she did Kurt.
Happiest days of your life….
As Calvin’s world turns.
It’s the bitter truth of every day life, Calvin. Get used to it.
Sometimes negativity abounds.
Life’s sometimes tough for a kid living in an idyllic wealthy community with great schools. i know — I grew up in that same town…
waaaaaaaaa!!! Ipray for parents these days!!!
Watterson has said that this comic shows how he remembers childhood, and he never understood people that see it as an idyllic time.
I don’t remember if my childhood was that “bad.” I don’t remember what I had for breakfast yesterday either!
Who knew that Mo was an evangelist?
Another big day, huh? I guess Calvin’s gotta make it as big as it can be.
I know it’s just a cartoon, but doesn’t it seem like Calvin is a bit depressing at time. Poor kid. I hope he learns how to get a handle on the world. Well, he did, as I am sure that Watterson has obtain a handle on the world.
At least his dreams are his own.
For some people, “the days blend together” thing starts younger than others………
One of the classic strips. Mr. Waterson really shows life from the perspective of a six year old.
Always loved how Moe’s speech looked different from everyone else. More primitive.
Reminds me of middle school. Ugh.
Wait until you’ve had 60 years of this, day after day.
I’ve raised children who would argue for two hours about ten minutes worth of homework and know that their math was right because the textbook and the calculator had to be wrong. I’ve also worked for companies who would fix things seven times instead of taking an entire extra ten seconds to do it right the first time and also would not train or respect people for their work because they were just going to leave anyway. Welcome to America in the 21st century.
All you need is love…
“I think I’ll move to Australia.”
Sometimes I would wake up at 4 in the morning dreaming about something pleasant and wish that time would just freeze at that moment.
These are the days when you determine what you will do when you grow up and are in control of your life.
A neighbor decided when he was a kid that when he grew up he would eat Frosted Flakes every day…. and now he does.
Its all about the small conquests.
I sometimes feel that way, Calvin.
I think that last panel is the most perfect summation of life I have ever seen.
I can relate to this sometimes
Something to really look forward to….
Now THIS is what I remember about growing up: Negotiate your way around certain adults and peers alike all day, then go to bed knowing the gauntlet would be waiting in the morning.
Of course, all of Calvin’s misery could be mitigated — here’s the alternative: http://www.joeydevilla.com/2008/01/08/calvin-and-hobbes-now-with-ritalin/
This is what my life feels like
