    Let’s hope, he’s artistic.

    A “better student” and “Calvin” are mutually exclusive! ;)

    He’s uninterested in sports anyway. His imagination and curiosity are too active to endure the boredom and repetition involved in sports.

    Calvin likes sports, just his free-for-all randomized versions that are fast and furious.

    …Calvin will probably end up owning a team.

    About the only thing Calvin’s good at – and ever will be good at, is getting into trouble.

    Possibly Calvin’s dad’s greatest insight ever.

    Hat-tip! Watterson at his artistic best. So well animated then boom! The last panel. Nothing deep or philosophical, just reality..Calvin’s future possibilities.

    Dad, here’s a teachable moment. The batter remains stationary after the ball toss in order to hit the ball. C’mon, Dad, demonstrate.

    It’s really hard to hit the ball if you swing the bat with your eyes closed.

    Today’s strip is from 1990. A year later, Calvin was still swinging with his eyes closed, but he found a creative solution:

    Here is another strip where Bill Watterson used mirror imaging freely, depending on what he thought looked best in any particular panel. The glove in panels 1 and 4 fits on Calvin’s left hand. The glove in panels 3 and 5 fits on Calvin’s right hand:

    Calvins major imagination would make a great writer. Sci-fi of course!

    He’ll either be an astronaut or time traveler.
