    Kind of sad..yet wonderful at the same time.

    Ghosts, imaginary friends, real friends, who cares, let’s have fun.

    And sometimes, even though there were plenty of kids around, I would find myself standing alone and wishing there was someone who wanted to play with ME.

    To all you who joined in yesterday’s geography, thanks! It was great to get an idea of where we all come from - widely diverse in place, language and culture but all united in the fascinating adventures of Calvin and Hobbes.

    Real friends reduce the number of ghost players, but may increase the number of disagreements, especially if the rules change as frequently as they do in Calvinball.

    It is also interesting, as I recall, the amount of imagination decreases as the number of “real” players increases.

    Yukoner - That was a good idea of yours. We here at gocomics cover the world.

    Calvin should know by now that you can’t outsmart Hobbes.

    Whats even worse, and we forget this sometimes, is Calvin is really playing by himself. threlfallm , this is regular baseball. I haven’t seen Calvinball in a while. Now that game had some odd rules, or perhaps no rules.

    Are we the only species to have imaginary friends?

    I’m not sure if anthropomorphic stuffed tigers having imaginary friends count.

    threlfallm said, about 13 hours ago: I thought there were 10 types of mathemeticians. Those who understand binary and those who don’t.

    Excellent.

    Yukoner: I agree whole heartingly that it was a great idea yesterday with the geography day sign- in. I was surprised too but shouldn’t have been where everyone is located. It was fun to see! PatPiano: My Mom was a perfectionist! She vacuumed and dusted everyday! To answer the question of why iron the bed linens – she said it was just in case someone saw them wrinkled then she’d be embarrassed. That’s all I could get out of her as an answer when I was a kid. She’d also iron my Dad’s boxers and I just decided not to persue that line of questioning! Somebodyshort: Love the sign-in name and great parenting with the imaginary baseball game! rohitjoshi- I like your profile photo of Calvin. Just to let you know they also refer to it as an Avatar. In case you’re looking for more they have some good ones for free on: avatars.jurko.net

    How do they keep track of all the ghosts?

    Calvin … so smart but so lonely in real life. No where bored though in his own little world.

    BigGrouch & threlfallm - This is pre-Calvinball. This strip was first published in July ‘88, Calvinball wasn’t created until May 1990 when Calvin was playing Baseball at school and got an out for the wrong team.
