    A first grader playing hooky; talk about being advanced for your age.

    It’s 2:25 in the morning. I should be asleep. But then I wouldn’t be appreciating Calvin and Hobbes appreciating.

    After that run-in with Ms. Wormwood yesterday, I don’t blame Calvin at all for playin’ hooky.

    I dunno about that; way back in the mid-60s a first-grade classmate of mine got tired of being at school and walked off during morning recess. No fences around the schoolyards in our rural community.

    the true secrete to happiness is learning to appreciate the moment that you get caught..

    That’s little kids for you – totally in the moment.

    Yeah, it is only later in life when we grow the rest of our
    brain that we may (MAY) stop to consider consequences.

    Selective appreciation.

    Calvin needs to enjoy living in the moment, because he’ll be in a lot of trouble in another moment.

    In the U.S., the expression “just one second” is in the process of replacing the expression “just a moment.” Perhaps someday we will be talking about “living in the second” rather than “living in the moment.”

    At least when Calvin returns to school, he will be able to say that he has been gone for “just one second.”

    It seems risky for Hobbes to be climbing a tree. If Calvin’s Mom were to spot them, Hobbes would suddenly turn into a stuffed animal and he would fall from the tree.

    Reading comic strips and sharing humor are therapeutic, because we are enjoying living in the moment. Sadly, in the future we may be limited to doing this for just one second.

    This concludes my random thoughts on Calvin and Hobbes and language evolution for today.

    I prefer living in the past!


    Things were much simpler then…

    I like telling people “your second is over with already”.

    Tigers are very good tree climber!! He must find a secure seat, when he changes into stuffed Hobbes, he will not fall down!!

    Waitaminute! Looks like Calvin really went out on a limb to make his point. So did Hobbes.

    Have we already reached the point where a “New York minute” takes too long?
