    If Susie is right, Calvin is immune for life.

    So Calvin will grow up to be an anti-vaxxer?

    I dislike competative sports—especially involving kids. IMHO, it teaches them the wrong values—like the Vince Lombardi maxim: “Winning isn’t everything; it’s the ONLY thing!”

    It’s nice that Susie doesn’t care whether Calvin plays Baseball or not. She just wants to play with him.

    Be careful Susie. He would jump off the teeter-totter causing you to bruise your infamous delicate heinie.

    This “cootie” thing has always baffled me: it is only USA in spite of the historic American matriarcate. In Italy we are traditionally more “sexist”, but we never ever had such a stupidity, even in elementary school.

    I like that Susie calls it a teeter-totter instead of a seesaw. That’s what we called them where I grew up.

    I remember cooties. There were a number of “rules.”

    First of all, you can not get cooties from girls who are related to you. This includes sisters and up to first cousins.

    Second, girls are only carriers for a limited time in their life: generally the grade school years. Boys can only catch cooties during this age range as well.

    Third, age makes a difference. The closer the girl is to you in age, the more likely you are to get cooties from her.

    Fourth, there is no such thing as natural immunity. Having caught a case of cooties does not mean that you will not catch them again.

    Fifth, the only cure is quarantine. You must avoid all girls for an unspecified period of time.

    Finally, girl cooties are not fatal.

    Stupidity produces antibodies?

    Calvin will show how bad he is at playing sports. This, along with his antisocial behavior, explains why he never plays with other boys, and preferred to dream up a friend.

    Susie is right. Stupidity breeds antibodies, but they usually work against increasing intelligence. There are those who start out ‘green’ and who gradually mature into adept, thoughtful individuals. Then there are those who start out ‘green’ and never reach a mature stage of thinking and doing anything beyond what suits them.

    The baseball arc really hits home for me (pun not intended).I wanted to be playing sport with everyone else, except I was autistic (unknown at the time) and bullied out of particpation. Then later bullied because I was not longer interested in participating, because of the bullying.

    They sign up to play baseball? At our elementary school, it’s all spontaneous games, with both boys and girls playing.

    I don’t recall my elementary school having recess baseball… but the kids (both the boys and girls) did often play kickball during recess, though I rarely joined; I usually used recess to just cut loose and unwind for a while.

    From Starship Troopers:

    ″‘You! I’ve just awarded you the prize for the hundred-meter dash. Does it make you happy? […] No dodging, please. You have the prize — here, I’ll write it out: ‘Grand prize for the championship, one hundred-meter sprint.‘” He had actually come back to my seat and pinned it on my chest. ‘There! Are you happy? You value it — or don’t you?’ Mr. Dubois had looked surprised. ‘It doesn’t make you happy?’

    ‘You know darn well I placed fourth!’

    ‘Exactly! The prize for first place is worthless to you . . . because you haven’t earned it. But you enjoy a modest satisfaction in placing fourth; you earned it.‘”

    I remember we were giving ourselves and each other cootie shots all the time when I was in fitst and second grade. I always wondered why we had to keep redoing it when it specifically said “Now I have it for life.”

    I refused to play sports with the guys in school. I wanted to do gymnastics, girls or no girls. Teachers wouldn’t let me so I climbed the rope and worked out. Guess what grades I got? Not A’s.
